Spring has come to Meg Corey's apple orchard—and it's quickly becoming a killer season. Just as she's getting the hang of managing the two-hundred-year-old orchard she's inherited, the dead body of a local organic farming activist is found in her springhouse. And the only thing that's sprung is a murder accusation - against her...
The young man's body was found with traces of pesticide poisoning. Strange for someone opposed to all things chemical. And why did someone plant his body on Meg's land—when Meg hadn't even met him? Now Meg needs to pick her actions wisely and get rid of the seed of suspicion that's been planted before the orchard - and her future - is spoiled for good.

I am an artist, lover of books. Love reading or listening to a good book. I live on the East Coast of Canada with an awesome ocean view.
All of Connolly's books are well written, leaving you to want to continue on, not only in the book but with the series! She keeps you guessing right to the end. This one had an unexpected end, it is always the quiet ones.
This is another good addition to the Orchid Mystery Series. Meg stumbles on to a body on her property and once again she has to solve the crime. This story is very entertaing and I like the way that the characters are developing. I'm disappointed that the recipes were not included, but I have been told that the technical team is looking into it.
It's longer than three words but "Apples and Poison don't mix"
Not really, although when they were poisoned, and started working through the possibilities
of who might have wanted to kill them, I figured out who it was. The actual killer was interesting...
The difference in the vocalization of the characters. The Northern accents are just right, not overly done. The speed of speech was on target....nothing blows a good narration than too fast or too slow of speaking.
Due to the length, it's very doable...even to go on to listen to another book in the series.
A fun story but heavy on details that could become a bit boring. Once again Meg has to deal with Detective William Markus her nemesis from One Bad Apple. Thankfully this time Meg does not know Jason Miller who's body she finds in her springhouse. Markus does manage to implicate Meg in the murder and Meg sets out to discover who Jason is and why someone killed.
Robin Miles, narrator for the Orchard Series does such a wonderful narration that it's sometimes hard to tell if this series is fiction or non fiction.
I love the way the friendships are growing and the adding of new people. I also love how Meg is changing. I also love the slow pace of the relationship of meg and Seth. The story was very good as well. I have never knew so much went into farming.
It was a good story but I did enjoy the first one more but it did keep me going and I wanted to see it through and was glad I did. I recommend it to anyone who loves cozy stories.
When Meg woke in the hospital wanted to see Seth first. I think it made an important to her feelings toward him. I also think it was the turning point to the story of who done it.
I actually did listen to it in one day. I think it is a great story.
I love this series so far and Shelia does a great job at writing this series I do hope all of them will be up for sale soon. I see only 6 of them are I do hope the last 2 will be up soon. I have already gotten the next 2 and listening to 3 now.
