This is a cozy mystery series. One can spend a ‘cozy’ afternoon reading and it is very pleasant, like catching up with old friends.
I don’t read many cozy mysteries, but this is one I have kept up with. I like the characters (most of the time), the locations, the ‘localness’ of the place, and the apple orchard.
This title, however, fell flat on its face for me. The plot points were very sparse; many of the local characters were not included in this title; there was little talk of apple varieties, or orchard management - all those little snippets that made the series palatable. There wasn’t even a recipe at the end. There was no charm or folksy feel to it.
Most of the book centered on Meg’s constant, constant whining and outrage that she was not included in a state narcotics force investigation. Really? Meg’s character was annoying, disrespectful and ignorant. And her constant moralizing about being a ‘faithful wife’ and a ‘traditional woman’ and Seth doing ‘man stuff’ was nauseating. Seth was portrayed as an appendage only. And I can’t believe that a tiny house (even a really tiny house) can be completed and livable in just a few days. I also can’t believe that anyone would rent out a family home to 4 strangers without asking for references and deposits.
I did like the colorful, stylized cover and the reference to Norm Abram of This Old House fame (produced by Boston PBS). That’s about it.
A disappointing read.
