Bree waved a dismissive hand. worry about it. You need time with your mom, and it won’t hurt the apples to wait a da. .You aren’t just saying that?. Hey, you don’t trust me? I know what I’m doing. It’ll be fine, and we’ve got it covered. Will your mom be coming back here?. I hope so. She’s been so odd these last few days, I really don’t know what she’s thinking

Great story - interesting to see how Emily Dickinson fit into this story, especially since I'm a literature fan! Love how the relationships continue to grow between the characters since her first book was written!

Crop killer needs a new singer. Many songs have been written so you wouldn't go into it empty.

A Killer Crop - Sheila Connolly. I have to say this series gets better with each book and I enjoyed this one more so than previous instalments. It was a bit slow-going through the first half of the book - lots of repetitive conversation between mother and daughter, but it picked up nicely the second half with an interesting story line about Emily Dickinson. I'll most likely check out the next book in the series. rgleason14-1Go to rgleason14-1's profile, opens in a new window. Meg, decides to dive into running an apple orchard.

A KILLER CROP is Title #4 in Shelia Connolly’s Orchard Mystery series. I like reading about genealogy, house restoration and issues, local history, agriculture and orchard management. I like the characters, their development and everyday activities in Granford, their small New England town. I do like puzzles and mysteries, although this one was a bit weak. The death reminded me a lot of the death of Sam in RED DELICIOUS DEATH. The cause of death ‘may’ have been due to a natural cause, but the whys and the wheres and the hows are unknown.
I find the fact that Meg’s mother, Elizabeth, drove all the way to Granford and visited with an old ‘flame’ and didn’t mention her arrival to either her daughter or husband seems odd and out of character. I also thought the character of Patricia, the second wife of the (murdered?) professor did not ring true. She didn’t know that her husband spent 2 days ‘squiring’ Meg’s mother around town? She didn’t find it suspicious that the young graduate student was so interested in her husband’s home study and writings? What about Meg’s father? The character didn’t jive with what was written about him and his wife at the beginning of the book and then at the end. There was a connecting thread missing.
The information about Emily Dickinson was fascinating. I would have liked even more facts (and perhaps a few poems) plus more fleshed-out connections to Meg’s family.
A good read if you are attached to the continuing development of the characters and New England area.

This cozy series is a winner. It may be that I am partial to the setting, but the stories evoke the sights, sounds, flavors and way of life that is quite real and comforting and recognizible. There is also a nice degree of accurate information about apple orchards, small scale agriculture, history, and the operation of a little town.

The main character, a single woman who has been " downsized " from a finance job in Boston, is believable in her quest to find a new direction in her life and cope with the unpredictability of running a heritage orchard in a small town and rehabilitate a 200 year old house and outbuildings. She is slow to commit to this new life and the possible new relationship that surfaces. She is treading carefully and is not a helpless female with foolish and impulsive behavior. She is a very real and understandable character and the life journey she takes over the several books already published in the series is relatable. She is well drawn and you care about her and root for her success in business and in life. The stories are compelling, too!

I hope the author continues to write this series and I look forward to many more good reads by Sheila Connelly. Her stories a perfect balance of interesting and fun!

I rated this 5 star as this is the best cozy series I have ever read. I like the fact that each book picks up right where the last one leaves off. You really get to know the characters. I like the fact there is no violence and our heroin does not do stupid things like get herself in danger all the time. She always gets the police involved which is what she should do. I have read too many books that the heroin ends up almost getting killed in the end of the book by the killer. Besides the mystery and romance plot, I have learned so much about apple orchards, old houses, history and family genealogy. I even now know more about Emily Dickinson and found that fascinating.

Volume 4 of the Orchard Mystery Serie. This Serie's a highlight so far.

The mother of the main caracter Meg Corey inherited an Apple-Orchard and an old Colonial House. Initially Meg came to Granford in Massachusetts to sell the estate.
But she fell in love with the place and kept on. In this Volume a former friend of her mother is murdered and Meg is not happy with her mothers involvement. But than - could her mother really kill someone? Even if Meg is not very conected to her mom, she has to help her out of this.

I love the development between mother and daughter in this book.

I recently purchased 4 "cozy mysteries". After reading two really poorly written books, I grabbed Shelia Connolly's "A Killer Crop". Ms. Connolly has written another excellent book. This book was the best of the series. Some of the character development is a little stilted/odd (specifically Bree), but overall the story is so interesting that the reader will overlook any minor defects & just sit back & enjoy. I have already ordered Ms.Connolly's newest addition to the series. Thanks to Ms. Connolly for restoring my love of the cozy mystery!

This was a great series and am waiting for the next book coming out in October. You really get attached to the characters, it's informative historically and in some ways inspirational as to the main character and her resolve. Just enough romantic intrigue to keep you hoping for a relationship to progress, and the suspense as to "who dunnit" is really good.

This book, by far, was the best in the series yet. And, that is truly saying something. I've enjoyed learning about apple growing and restaurant openings, but, when the added dimension of genealogy was introduced the book picked up and ran with it.

I could not help but be involved with the plot and eagerly reading to see how the generations of Ms. Emily was relative to the case. I enjoyed learning more about Ms. Dickinson and the fact that the Author, Ms. Connolly is of the family in real life was an added layer that made the book even more attractive to me.

I wish Meg and Seth's relationship wasn't quite so stilted but in a way, I guess it fits with the stern stereotype of the New Englander.

The recipes were a treat also. I can barely wait for the next episode. What treats will be in store for us readers?
Have no idea as it is book 4 and it is taking an eternity to get here....and could be 3 weeks for order to arrival. Not happy.
