The Body in the Ivy
In 1970, a popular, wealthy student, Helene Prince, fell to her death just before her graduation from Pelham College. The police ruled it a suicide, but Prin's twin sister never believed the official account of the events. Thirty years later, now an internationally known bestselling suspense writer, she's still yearning for an answer.Enter Faith Fairchild, a caterer, sometime sleuth, and, most significant in this case, the sister of a Pelham grad. Through the Pelham old-girl network, Faith has been hired for a weeklong reunion of eight classmates on the novelist's very private island. The dream job - the house is a mini-resort with spectacular ocean views - turns into a nightmare when Faith discovers she's trapped not with a group of longtime friends, but a group of suspects. None of the women knew the others were invited - and definitely hadn't stayed in touch. With no phone lines, cell reception, or boat, Faith is caught up in a deadly game of cat and mouse as one by one the alumnae fall prey to a madwoman. A disturbed sister's revenge? Faith must quickly unlock a series of past secrets if she's going to leave the island alive.
