In The Body in the Dunes, Faith's vacation offers more excitement than she and her husband bargained for when a terrified woman knocks on their hotel room door looking to hide from her husband. A case hits close to home in The Proof is Always in the Pudding, when Faith investigates a generations-old superstition that has been passed down in her husband's family. Faith and her sister, Hope, counsel a bride-to-be suffering a number of alarming accidents before the big day in Across the Pond. In Sliced, Faith switches from contestant to detective when a killer reality television cooking competition turns deadly.
Small Plates also includes some irresistible standalone treats, including the Agatha Award winning The Would-Be Widower, about a husband who longs to be rid of his wife, and Hiding Places in which a young wife's new husband may not be all that he appears.
