HASH(0x8d6362b8) out of 5 stars Another great book in the Orchard series 1 Oct. 2013
By F. Yoder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Golden Delicious is the seventh book in An Orchard Mystery series.

I really love all of Sheila Connolly's books, but this series in particular. I like the way Connolly weaves a bit of interesting information to give the reader something to ponder, in addition to solving the murder. Two points of interest that Connolly delves into and ties into the story are home restoration and the use of period type material. I particularly enjoy this, as I have visited the Studebaker family mansion and am always in awe of the intricate woodwork that had to be made by hand. Our main character, Meg Corey's boyfriend's profession is home restoration/renovation. One of residents of Granford has had his late 1700's house hit by a speeding teenager and has hired Seth to do the repairs. And Donald can be a stickler for using the correct materials. The second is information that centers around the Asian longhorned beetle. This insect has no known predators and is very invasive to trees and forest.

Meg goes with goes with Seth to visit Jonah Nash the owner of woodland and a sawmill where Seth will be getting the materials for the restoration work. But before they have a chance to Jonah, Meg finds the body of David Clapp who used to work for Nash cutting down trees and also finds the remains an Asis longhorned beetle. The question for the Meg is whether the death was independent from the finding of beetles. With the help of Seth and Christopher, who works in the agriculture department at the local university, they are determined to find the answer. On top of this, Meg has concern herself with the drought that has hit the area and Bree, her orchard manager, is keeping her busy watering the apple orchard.

So looking forward to the next book to see what kind of dilemma will be facing Meg, I will also want to see how Meg Seth's relationship goes.

HASH(0x8d63630c) out of 5 stars Great Read 22 Oct. 2013
By Dru Love - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This series continues to get better each year and I love how the story evolved where the mystery and the aftermath were both exciting and intriguing. This fast-paced and action-filled drama had me quickly turning the pages, as I had to know what was happening next. The author did a good job in bringing attention to the Asian long-horned beetle; and how it affects the crop as well as how it played in this well-written whodunit. Meg Corey has come a long way and I like it. She's a great heroine surrounded by a wonderful cast that includes Bree, Seth, Art and the many citizens of Granford. I can't wait to see where the next chapter in Meg's life takes us in this delightfully charming series.

HASH(0x8e8f53c0) out of 5 stars Cute cozy 26 Dec. 2013
By J. Hollen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I've read the full series so far. I like the setting, a rural area apple farm. And the author includes interesting tidbits about growing apples and other things. As in so many series though the main character loses their "realness" and everyone just Loves them and will do anything for them, etc. this series is loosing appeal (a peel-lol) to me. Probably won't continue.

I liked the main story, but was put off by so much repetition of the bug story line. I enjoyed the previous books and will read the next book in the series.

I usually enjoy her books, but this is not one of her best. Too much info about insects, drought, etc. Not enough about the characters.
