Faith Sibley Fairchild runs a catering business. She has a son, Ben, twelve, and a daughter, Amy, nine. She only lies to her minister husband, Tom, when necessary, always making sure to keep her fingers crossed behind her back.

Patsy Avery is President of the Ganley Museum board of trustees and a good friend to Faith. When she suspects a fake painting at the museum, she calls on Faith to help uncover the truth.

Faith is the owner of Have Faith, a catering business. She immediately fell in love with Tom while catering a reception. Of course, at the time, he was not wearing his clergy outfit, but it was too late, Faith was smitten. She and Tom have a great marriage, except for one ongoing crisis every year; when to turn on the furnace. Patsy calls upon Faith to help her see if one of the paintings donated could possibly be a fake. Faith is able to help Patsy, but a couple of days later when the museum holds an event, Faith stumbles upon the dead body of a woman inside the fish tank display. The ladies put their heads together and suspect not only an act of forgery, but also the death of the woman possibly being linked with everything involved. Too bad they cannot get the police to believe their theory before another body is found, and Faith has to worry about a killer.

The Body in the Gallery is an outstanding story. It has some nice perks to it and little incidences that keep the story flowing at a good pace. The characters are believable in their actions, even Faith, down to letting her mind wander sometimes during her husband’s sermons. I like the friendship that Faith and Patsy share. This story is easy on the eyes and puts the reader inside the center of the action as everything starts to unravel. Ms. Page weaves a terrific plot, awesome characters, and excellent writing, making this one class-act novel, even with some extra recipes included. I was absorbed in every page.
