Faith Fairchild, heroine of Katherine Hall Page's The Body in the Belfry returns to amateur sleuthing in The Body in the Kelp . This time around, Faith and her husband, Tom Fairchild, the handsome young minister, have left the little village of Aleford, Massachusetts for a summer on Sanpere Island, off the coast of Maine. But Tom is called away to a three-week religious retreat in New Hampshire, leaving Faith to amuse herself and care for baby Benjamin, now safely into his "terrible twos." The summer begins innocently enough, with Faith involved in a seemingly harmless mystery, a hunt for treasure, the clues to which are cryptically embedded in a patchwork quilt. Then she and young Benjamin almost stumble over the body of another summer resident along the beach, and Faith is forced into more serious -- and dangerous -- "detection."

This is the second mytsery of hers that I read, and same comment about both - the solutions and the way she wraps up the plot are really good, but the writing is not to my preference. She uses a lot of cliches and "big words", and it's hard to really get close to the characters.
