A Killer Crop by Sheila Connolly

This fourth book in the Orchard series picks up where the third one, Red Delicious Death, left off.  Meg and Seth had come to her house after having dinner at Gran's, the restaurant they helped get started.  Surprise -  Meg's mother is waiting for them!  What a mood killer!  Meg's mother, Elizabeth, came to the area to visit a friend, Daniel, from college.  But Meg doesn't find out until Detective Marcus comes looking for Elizabeth.  Her cell phone was the last number Daniel called.  Meg is wondering what is going on.  Why is her mother visiting other men without her father? Just where is dad? Soon the whole gang is trying to figure out just who did Daniel in and why.

I think I am going to take a little break on reading this series.  The story lines are starting to get too similar.  I knew who the killer was a soon as the character was introduced.  I want to be surprised even if I am reading the fourth book in a series.
