With each new book in the Orchard series, Robin Miles outshines herself. She adds so much vibrancy to the story that without her amazing narration it would lack a special ingredient that only she brings to it. Her voice is clear and pleasing, drawing you along, and smoothly enticing you into Meg and Seth's world. Robin Miles makes everything vivid with her elegant and cultured narration. She's expressive without being overly dramatic, and always captures the personality of each character.

Meg has finally gotten through her first apple harvest. Getting Bree, her surly young orchard manager to do the bookkeeping for the results, has been a challenge. Meg can't be sure if it was successful and made a profit, or failed. 

With the storm of the century heading right to Granford, Meg's furnace dies and temperatures will be dipping into the twenties making for very bad timing. Seth wants her to go to his house where it's warm but Meg is stubborn and wants to stay home.

After all she surmises, her ancestors survived in the house for a century so, she should be able to do so too. Of course the always helpful and handy Seth knows Meg will need his help so he spends the night with her.

Seth and Meg are getting more open and serious about their relationship, although Meg is still reluctant to make a commitment. Seth is a patient guy and gives Meg all the space she needs to come to terms with her own jumbled emotions. A couple of very cold nights bunked before a roaring fireplace leads to a closer connection and understanding between them.

Odd things begin to happen that at first seem to be malicious pranks, until they turn sinister. Meg is puzzled, who would be doing these spiteful things to her. She can't think of anyone that angry with her. After being locked in her barn all night with only her two goats Dorcas and Isabel for warmth, she's now angry, but it's the bullet through the kitchen window that makes her determined to set a trap for the culprit.

With the help of Bree and Seth, Meg puts her plan into action and when they catch the person behind the vicious attacks, it is a complete and unexpected surprise. There is no murder in this book but a mystery that Meg unravels with the help of her new found interest in genealogy and history and her friends determination to put an end to the continual assaults.
