Picked to Die

An Orchard Mystery, #8

This is another mystery in this series called the Orchard Mysteries by Sheila Connolly. I really like this series and their storylines.

In this novel we have Seth and his fiancée, Meg Corey who are trying to take care of Meg's orchard and his project before it snows. Seth's plans are doing okay, but he has to stop doing an old building over when an old skeleton turns up.

Meg has another mystery to solve when a man's body is found. What should Meg and Seth do? They have to solve these mysteries fast so that they can get on with their plans.

The characters are very likable. The recipes are great, too. I enjoyed that both characters had their own problems to solve. They were great separate, but they were even better as a team.
