The Fourth of July is one of the hottest on record, and even the breeze off Penobscot Bay can't seem to cool things down for Faith Fairchild and the rest of the folks on Sanpere Island. After the celebrations are over, Faith discovers a body in the woods near The Birches, an early 20th-century "cottage". The body is identified as The Birches' housekeeper. The death is only one of the dramatic events upending the historic house.
A family gathering has been called to decide who will inherit the estate that has been in the Proctor family for generations. With this much money involved, it's just a matter of time before trouble arises.

I've read this series for years, and go back to it whenever I feel a need for what I know will be another enjoyable read. This one is set on an island off the coast of Maine, as have a couple others.
Faith's part is small in this story. Tom is gone for the summer so he's not hardly involved at all. Their son, Ben, has morphed into a young teen and has a larger role than either of his parents.
Plot isn't outstanding but still very entertaining. A bit like getting a letter from old friends and catching up with their family and happenings.
Happy to know they are doing well!
