Faith Fairchild turns back the clock to one of the most momentous events of her life: her wedding day. It's 1990, and Faith Sibley is a single young woman with her own catering business in New York City. But a chance meeting with the Reverend Thomas Fairchild is love at first sight, and suddenly Faith is heading north to visit her future in-laws, some of whom are as frosty as a New England winter.
Before she can say "I do," two other mysteries divert the bride-to-be's attention. First, her new assistant, Francesca, appears to be hiding a family secret with roots in Italy. Then her sister, Hope, becomes the target of someone intent on sabotaging her high-stakes financial career. But above all, Faith needs to figure out who is trying to call off the wedding - by eliminating the bride!

This book was a light, fun listen. Don't expect a great masterpiece or a literary work of art. It is just enjoyable and relaxing. The two "mysteries" in the book were well developed (I didn't solve either until right before they were revealed and my early suspicions were incorrect). It kept my interest and was very enjoyable to listen to as I knit. I was a little worried when I purchased it that it might be a religious book because her husband was a minister but no religion was preached - his job just happened to be a minister. I hope Audible decides to carry some of the other books in this series because I would purchase them.

Faith, of course.
She tried to do a New England accent and it came of as a 1930s mobster. I've read all of Page's other books and I wish I had read this one instead of listening.
I've made a note of this narrator - won't be sucked in again.
I've read the other books in the series, and greatly enjoyed going back to the begining in this book.
When Faith discovers that her new boyfriend is a minister
A very fun book. Too bad the rest of the series is not available through audible.
This prequel to the 20 Faith Fairchild mysteries does a wonderful job of letting you know the character before she left New York City for married life in small town Massachusetts. The narrator does an excellent job portraying Faith Fairchild. I found the story very suspenseful and I loved learning all the details of Faith's pre-Massachusetts days. If you are a fan of the "cozy" mystery genre, this series is for you.
I was captivated by Ms Page's first book many years ago. They have always held my interest. Faith is a deeply funny, smart, interesting , and loving woman. I love living her life with her for a few hours a day. It is my way of escaping a sometimes dull life & pretending to be beautiful Faith. Keep them coming Ms Page.
I have read several of her books but only listened to this one. I liked listening to this one. It gave me more of a sense of place and time. It was sweet, romantic and had multiple murders. Like having a sweet and savory combined dish as a meal (something else I enjoy). I found this one hard to leave alone because it seems to be the first book of the series and although I've read (and enjoyed) others I never knew how their relationship came to be and that part was enlightening.
This is not a hard core murder and mayhem type of book but it is certainly MY type of book.
I hope you have more of Katherine Hall Page available soon and please, please, please keep the same reader. She was wonderful.
Yes, because of the combination budding romance and murders seemingly without rhyme or reason.
Faith, the central character.
Several, but can't think of one right now.
Please have more of her books available soon. Preferably in order since this being the first made such an impression on me. I wish I would have listened to this one before I read the others.
RETIRED & LOVING IT.
I LIKE THE PROTAGONIST, HAVE READ MANY OF THE AUTHOR'S BOOKS WITH THIS STORY LINE.
THE ENDING WAS EXCITING, AND THE MANY THREADS CAME DOWN TO ONE.
THE RACE DOWN THE MOUNTAIN ROAD.
WELL WORTH THE CREDIT
