Connolly, Sheila. One Bad Apple. New York: Berkley, 2008.
Meg Corey lost her Boston banking job through a corporate merger and downsizing. She moves to western Massachusetts to renovate an inherited property in Granford so that she and her mother can sell it. She's only been there a few weeks when a body of someone she knew very well ends up in her newly installed septic tank. With herself and the plumber Seth as the chief suspects in a community that does not know her well, she knows that she needs to find the real murderer and clear her name. I loved the characters and setting of this one, and I'm looking forward to future installments. There are recipes in the back, and I intend to try one or two of them. (4 of 5 stars)
