Book Review: The Body in the Kelp

Title The Body in the Kelp: A Faith Fairchild Mystery
Author Katherine Hall Page
Rating ****
Tags mystery, series, faith fairchild, sanpere maine, quilting 

Second in the Faith Fairchild cosy mysteries by Katherine Hall Page. Faith's son Benjamin is now in his terrible twos. She, Tom, and Benjamin, on the suggestion of their neighbor Pix Miller, go to Sanpere island off the coast of Maine for a vacation. Tom loves it, Faith isn't so sure, especially not when Tom has to leave for a church camp that lasts a couple of weeks. Things get especially upsetting when she and Benjamin find the body of a young man, a local potter, whom she had liked. She gets distracted, though, by a quilt she buys at auction that seems to be a map to a treasure rumored to belong to the now-deceased quilter.

Another good book in a good series. Page creates realistic characters and plots.
