2nd Meg Corey adventure set in MA near Amhurst centering around an apple orchard. This time Meg finds a grad student from nearby Amhurst College dead in her Springhouse. This particular student was a believer in organic food no pesticides. Good solid mystery, if somewhat predictably. Interesting discussion of what the US consumer would have to change in order to accept pesticide free food. Meg's relationship with her neighbor Seth seems to be progressing.
