A Gala Event

An Orchard Mystery, #9

As with many cozy mysteries this one has a theme, one that I did enjoy. This one includes wedding plans and I thought that the characters were great. They were perfect for this genre and I enjoyed Meg. In this one we have a cold case. In most cozies the murder has just occurred, but not in this one. I loved that plot element.

In this book the past was really important to finding the murderer. It was thought provoking and we had to go back to the characters pasts. It was all very interesting.

I have a soft spot for New England cozies. In this one the Orchard lingo was also interesting.

Overall I’m giving this cozy 3 of 5 stars.

Wedding bells are ringing for Meg and Seth in the latest Orchard Mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of Picked to Die…

The fall harvest may be just about over, but orchard owner Meg Corey is busier than ever planning her wedding to Seth Chapin.

And even though the happy couple has invited most of Granford, Massachusetts, to the ceremony, they might have to make room for one more guest…

Ex-con Aaron Eastman has unexpectedly reappeared in his hometown, searching for answers to the tragic fire in his family’s past that put him behind bars twenty-five years ago. Moved by his sincerity, Meg vows to do everything she can to help him solve the cold case. As she cobbles together the clues, it becomes increasingly clear that Aaron may have been considered the bad seed of the family, but someone else was one bad apple…
