Mysterious Saturday Review: Bitter Harvest

Fall is over and Meg is still standing. She's taking a breathier from apples, but she's anxious to find out how the orchard did her first year. As the cold comes quickly, it brings a blizzard.

Her furnace breaks just as the snow hits - making for a cold house. Meg's determined to stay and rough it. Seth bunks with her - helping her with the wood and staying warm. Together, they have a cozy time.

During the day, Meg finds a sampler - a small embroidered family piece. It's wedged in a closet and appears to be quite old. As soon as the power comes back home, Meg uses her downtime to start researching the names on the piece. She wonders what happened to the woman who created the beautiful design and why her entire family is dead.

My Thoughts: It's different from the other mysteries in the series as it's a historical death. There's no dead bodies and no danger. The pacing of the book, therefore is slower. It's a fascinating read - with the historical aspects. It's not what I expected, but I did enjoy it. I enjoyed learning more about Meg and Seth's relationship. Looking forward to the next book in the series!

Cover Thoughts: Cute - I Love the snow!
