Book description from GoodReads:
There’s a killer in the orchard, and he’s rotten to the core.
Meg Corey has come to the quaint New England town of Granford, Massachusetts, to sell her mother’s old colonial home and apple orchard. Instead, she becomes embroiled in development plans that include her land, and her former flame from Boston. When he’s found dead in the new septic tank on her property, the police immediately suspect Meg, whose only ally in town is the plumber Seth Chapin. Together, they’ll have to peel back the layers of secrecy that surround the deal in order to find the real murderer, and save the orchard.
My review – 4/5 Stars (originally posted on GoodReads on 6/24/17)
All the components of the story in this book just really came together for me. I loved the mystery surrounding the story behind the bones found at Ve’s house. Not just finding out how they got there, but hearing the story about who they belonged to and how that person’s life had been entwined with so many of the villagers. Many events came up in the book that had me pointing the finger at the wrong person. I thoroughly enjoyed this one!
I absolutely can’t wait for the next book in this series. This book set up some interesting possible future storylines.
