Highly recommended - check it out

The books in this mystery series just keeps you wanting more. Very well plotted. Love the characters and their interaction with each other. Hope Sheila Connolly is working on more books in this series.

I'm only giving this one 3 stars because it wasn't as good as the prior books in the series. This one was a little slow to get going. I think possibly because it wasn't until about 145 pages in I realized a present day murder was not going to occur. It's not a bad read but it definitely wasn't what I was anticipating when I preordered it. This one also didn't have very much interaction with the people in the town of Granford & I was looking forward to that too. Maybe the next one will be better. To Sheila Connolly: If it's not broke don't fix it.

    Great Series!

    In Bitter Harvest, her apples have been harvested And Meg Corey is looking forward to a little relaxation and spending more time with Seth Chapin. They get the opportunity to do just that when a storm leaves them stranded at Meg's house. To pass the time, they decide to clean the rooms and discover a sampler that details the tragedies of a family long ago.

    Meg wants to discover what really happened to that family, but she has other problems. What first appeared as a string of bad luck now seems to be the actions of someone who has it in for Meg. After she gets locked into her own barn overnight and someone shoots out her kitchen window, Seth and Meg's orchard manager Bree decide to take matters into their own hands and set a trap before someone ends up dead.

    I enjoyed that this book varied from the others in the series. There was no work to be done on the orchard, so we were able to concentrate on the relationships Meg has made since moving here and taking over the orchard. The mystery was also very different from those in the earlier books and the way the sampler tied into the rest of the story was a nice touch.

    Nice story

    I thought this was a cute story, sometimes I like to read things that don't require a lot of thought. Just a nice story that is easy to read. I have a very stressful job so little mysteries are nice once in a while.
