About The Body in the Wake:
Faith Fairchild is enjoying the warm weather at her summer cottage in Penobscot Bay, Maine and for the first time in years, she has time for herself. With husband Tom holed up in a friend’s empty house across the island to finish a book, her son working for his professor in RI, and her daughter immersed in a summer job at Sanpere Shores.; Faith is free to tackle some of her own projects. The first, distracting her friend Sophie from her worries that she isn’t yet pregnant. The second, helping to plan the wedding of her friend Pix’s daughter! But when Faith discovers an apparent drowning victim, with a strange tattoo, in the lily pond, her relaxing summer plans are turned upside down. The Body in the Wake has all the ingredients of another fantastic Faith Fairchild mystery. A dash of family, a pinch of friendship, a teaspoon of neighborly drama plus a shocking twist as Page weaves in a moving subplot that addresses the growing opioid crisis in America.
