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.

In all of the apple orchard books, both Meg andBree are so touchy and get angry often at the least provocation. They constantly snipe at each other. I want to like the series but it is hard to do when two of the main characters over react and pout like children. Meg is so defensive to Seth and Bree is defensive toward Meg. They need to get over themselves.

I liked Shelia Connolly’s BITTER HARVEST, but that ‘liking’ had little to do with the mystery component. There was very little, if any, mystery component to the story, besides wondering if the pranks and incidents related to Meg and Bree were malicious or just coincidences. I enjoyed reading this story because of the genealogy puzzles that related to the Warren family and other early 1700s Granford families. The genealogy, house restoration, local history, local agriculture and character personalities - these are the reasons I keep up with the series. I did like the mention of Sturbridge Village - a fabulous living history museum in Massachusetts. The finding of Violet Cox’s sampler and tying that in with the curator visit from Sturbridge Village was a good connecting thread.

This fifth novel in the Orchard Series is as good as its predecessors. Good plot, likeable characters, great setting. I recommend all the Orchard Series novels.

This has been an enjoyable series and I have read them all. But I found this book sorely lacking in a mystery. Ok....there is a little...things that go bump in the night. But you have to get halfway thru the book for the main character to even suspect that something is wrong with "the sounds that go bump in the night." And the wrap up of the storyline is too quick.

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.
