I didn't like this book as much as the previous ones in the series, since it was about Faith's friend, next-door neighbor and now employee, Pix Miller. Faith phones it in, literally, and only appears on the scene in the last ten pages. I checked the font cover, and it doesn't say "A Faith Fairchild Mystery," but it is part of her series. The mystery was decent, although Pix doesn't come close to actually solving it, but just stumbles blindly into the path of the murderer holding a gun. I do like Samantha's character, however. I tend to like kids and teenagers in books, as long as they're portrayed realistically.
