RED DELICIOUS DEATH by Shelia Connolly (Berkley)
In her third outing, downsized banker Meg Corey is feeling almost at home in her new hometown. She's learning to be an apple farmer, dating a great guy, and working to restore her inherited farmhouse. When her best friend from Boston asks her to help a couple of young chefs find a building suitable for a restaurant, Meg agrees, never thinking she'd soon be facing a contentious town official, a time-consuming search, and a body found face down in a pig wallow.
Meg is a smart, savvy woman who's working hard to fit into her new community—just the kind of protagonist I look for in today's traditional mystery. I look forward to more trips to Granford, Massachusetts!
