In this latest Orchard mystery, amateur sleuth Meg Corey takes a bite out of crime.... Some baby-faced chefs, fresh out of cooking school, are looking to open a restaurant in Granford. They plan on using local foods - great news for city girl banker-turned orchard owner Meg Corey. Yet when one of the chefs is found dead, face-down in a farmer's pig wallow, plans come to a screeching halt. And Meg soon discovers they may have a locally grown killer on their hands.

Was indeed surprised by the ending, wasn't at all what I expected it to be. It is the kind of book that I like, it doesn't reveal the "villain" until the end.
Have listened to many of Sheila Connolly books, good author, love her books. Many great series that she has.
Meg continues to slog through the learning process of running her apple orchard. She has a long task list of needs for her 200 year old Colonial house. All of them expensive. Getting involved in helping a young couple start their restaurant business in Granford is cutting into her other duties in a big way. When the Sou Chef turns up face down in a pig wallow, Meg sets out to find out who killed him and why. A bit of an over kill on the pesticides. I found that slow and a bit dull to listen too. Robin Miles to the rescue with her outstanding narration that makes even the less interesting and slow parts move along and sound more interesting then they really are.
I love how the relationships are growing. I also love the new people added to the story. I think the story was good it didn't end the way I thought it would. I love the relationship with Meg and Seth but also see it taking a turn. You have to get to book to find out how.
How everyone comes together to help with the restaurant. I also like how we are left wondering about the end of the book and wanting more.
I have enjoyed her a lot.
It was very relaxing to listen to this book.
I have enjoyed this series and I recommend it to anyone who likes cozy stories.
This is another good addition to the Orchard Mysteries. I thought I new the killer but was shocked at the final outcome. I don't like the narrator for this series. I think she puts emphasizes in the wrong places and sometimes her voice is to nasal. I was disappointed that the recipes were not included at the end of the book. I might get the Kindle version for the next book because of it.
