After Meg loses her job in Boston, she moves to the small rural New England town of Granford with plans to fix up an old house she owns with her mother to sell. But she quickly discovers the house is in need of some serious attention and a big city bank has eyes on the land the house sits on to make way for a mall. And then her ex-boyfriend who worked for the bank turns up dead in her septic tank and she's the number one suspect. With the State Police not really interested in looking further than her she needs to find the killer and clear her name. One Bad Apple is kind of obvious, I had pretty much figured out who the killer was before the guy was even killed. There were a few surprises along the way and I found myself quite enjoying the author's little digressions into the world of growing apples, a subject which she is quite obviously passionate about. As a cozy mystery it was pretty good and I bought book two for no other reason than I enjoyed this one. I'm not really sure how many people can die in Meg's back yard before I give up on the series but for now I'll continue.

The best Kindle One Bad Apple One Bad Apple was an interesting opening to the small town of Granford, Massachusetts and our heroine, Meg Corey. Her mother had inherited a money pit but she was clueless as to its condition. Around the same time, Meg was let go from her financial position when she was downsized out of her job in Boston. Unaware of the house beforehand, Meg became co-owner and agreed to fix it up before selling. Her goal was to sell it for a profit, share the proceeds with her parents and establish a new life elsewhere.If only it was this simple. The murder of a former lover, her septic tank and an engaging group of townspeople/suspects provided motive, means and opportunity. Meg needed to connect the dots since the detective in charge placed her at the top of the list of perpetrators. Apples, a plumber and some biting cold weather affected her thoughts and choices. This was a pleasant who-done-it with a solid conclusion to the mystery but enough open ends for more things to come. I look forward to reading the second story in this mystery series.
