Description:

Spring has come to Meg Corey's apple orchard—and it's quickly becoming a killer season. Just as she's getting the hang of managing the two-hundred-year-old orchard she's inherited, the dead body of a local organic farming activist is found in her springhouse. And the only thing that's sprung is a murder accusation—against her...

The young man's body was found with traces of pesticide poisoning. Strange for someone opposed to all things chemical. And why did someone plant his body on Meg's land—when Meg hadn't even met him? Now Meg needs to pick her actions wisely and get rid of the seed of suspicion that's been planted before the orchard—and her future—is spoiled for good.

My Thoughts:

In this book Meg Corey's apple orchard is starting to shape up that is until a man is found dead in her springhouse.  Meg can't believe her luck of another body and it being related to the local college.  Meg is determined to find out what is going on and why?  Will she find out or will her time be sprung?

I love this series with the theme of small town and apples which makes things so fun.  Meg is also working with a new worker to her farm Bree the farm manager.  I think she will make a good friend to Bree as she learns about farm managing and how Bree handles the job.
