Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Caterer Faith Fairchild has a bad feeling about her father-in-law's decision to celebrate his seventieth birthday with a family reunion ski week at the Pine Slopes resort in Vermont — the Fairchilds' favorite getaway since Faith's husband, the Reverend Thomas Fairchild, was a toddler. At first her unease seems unfounded — until Faith comes across a corpse on one of the cross-country trails, the apparent victim of a heart attack.

Then one catastrophe follows another: the mysterious disappearance of the Pine Slopes' master chef, a malicious prank at the sports center, a break-in at the Fairchild condo, the sabotage of a chairlift. And when a fatal "accident" with the snow-making machines stains the slopes blood red, Faith realizes she'll have to work fast to solve a murderous puzzle — because suddenly not only are the reunion and the beloved resort's future in jeopardy . . . but Faith's life is as well.

Synopsis:

Caterer Faith Fairchild and her family are off for a week-long stay at the Pine Slopes resort to celebrate a birthday. All is going smoothly until Faith stumbles upon the body of a local lawyer. Then the resort's star chef vanishes. Even the hardiest vacationers flee when they discover the slopes covered in red snow, the result of a body falling - or pushed - into the water supply for the snow-making machine. Faith must dig through an avalanche of clues that could bury her as well.
