This is the 5th book in the Orchard Mystery series, and one of the few longer lasting cozy series I've been able to keep up with. I think what I love so much about this series is the New England history that's sprinkled throughout every book. I'm a lifelong New Englander and can't imagine living anywhere else.
This one is unusual in that there is no modern day murder. Except for the mystery of who is harrassing Meg, the majority of the mystery is connected to a mourning sampler Meg finds in a closet dating back to the late 1700s and the sad story of the young girl that left it there. Meg has a lot of decisions to make in this book as well, and learns a lot about herself and the people around her in the process.
