Picked to DiePicked to Die by Sheila Connolly is the 8th book in the “Orchard” mystery series. Publisher: Obsidian, October 2014

It’s harvest time in Granford, Massachusetts, and orchard owner Meg Corey and her fiancé, Seth, are both racing to beat the New England winter. Meg is bringing in her apple crop with a team of workers, while Seth is working to restore an old building in the center of town. But when his project is set back due to the unexpected discovery of a skeleton under the building—and even worse, a young man related to one of Meg’s former apple pickers is found dead behind the local feed store—the couple’s carefully laid plans are quickly spoiled…

Meg can’t help but wonder: are they just unlucky, or is there something rotten in Granford? If so, she knows she’s got to seek out the bad apple before it ruins the whole bunch…

I liked it. The author did a great job in pulling this mystery together as I followed along with Meg. As always it’s good to see Meg and her friends and I’m glad we have a resolution to their personal relationship.
