    "Family drama and murder"

    Meg is busy with apple harvest when her mother shows up unannouced. She has to balance harvesting apples, her parents and murder. This is a very entertaining book. The intrusion of her parents and the murder is very realistic. I don't know whythe state police bothers with investigating because Meg manages to beat them to the truth. I wish there was a different narrator. This one does a terrible job. Sometimes Seth has an accent sometimes he doesn't. Plus everyone sounds old.

    Story
    "Mommy Dearest"
    What did you love best about A Killer Crop?

    Finally having a role for Elizabeth Corey, Meg's mother, although I didn't like her being the main suspect in a murder. I like the details of her house renovations.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like Meg, who is willing to learn new things and go in a very different direction in life than she'd previously known. She's also not to young to be a nit wit nor too old to be out of sync.


    What about Robin Miles’s performance did you like?

    I adore Robin Mile's narration of this series. She definitely does bring out every ounce of personality available even though some characters like Seth are bland as heck. She's a talented narrator.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not really as it is very long with lots of side detailing of pesticides. I also can't listen to long to a woman that has such angst dealing with her own mother. She's so deceptive and needy when it comes to dear old mom.


    Any additional comments?

    Robin Miles' is so talented that you can listen and drift away to Granford. All of the series is overly heavy on side lessons on different things, that reading text could be boring or slow but Robin Miles makes that palatable with her lovely voice and excellent interpretation the story.

    "Too much angst"

    I will read more, but it felt like all of the angst about her mother was there to fill out the book.
