This prequel to The Body in the Belfry and the rest of the delightful Faith Fairchild mysteries, is a paean to NYC, and the city especially during the Christmas season. As a huge fan of the Big Apple, I loved every paragraph of The Body in the Big Apple - lots of local color and brand names of places one would like to be hanging out in December in the City. Faith Fairchild renews acquaintance with her long time, very wealthy friend Emma, now married to an up-and-coming politician. They meet at a dinner Faith is catering, and besides renewing their friendship, Emma asks Faith's advice and help about what one does when one is being blackmailed. Two murders and a couple of attempts later, Faith has cracked the case, as well as many an egg and whipping up other ingredients in her day job. It's a good read; highly recommended for all who love New York and intelligent, fun cozies. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0380731304, Mass Market Paperback)

Before she met and married the Reverend Thomas Fairchild and moved to sleepy little Aleford, Massachusetts, Faith Sibley Fairchild had a catering business in the most colorful, frenetic, and exciting city in the world...

Young, ambitious and single in New York City in the late '809s, Faith Sibley is energized by the early success of her Have Faith catering enterprise. But she's cast into an unexpected new role when she runs into old high school friend Emma Stanstead at a swanky uptown party: sleuth! An anonymous blackmmailer is threatening to expose certain secrets of socialite Emma's less than glamorous past -- thereby destroying her reputation and her conservative husband's fast-rising political career -- and Faith fearlessly leaps into the fray. Though she lacks experience, Faith's keen instinct, insight, and determination to unmask and extortionist quickly carry her deep into the high and low life of the bustling Big Apple. And when a murder raises the stakes, Faith realizes that it's not just her old friend's good name that's in peril...it's Emma's life itself.
