It's the summer of 1944 and the world seems mired in a war that will never end. But even with a war on, the peaches are ripe for picking. As veteran teacher Miss Dimple Kilpatrick and her colleagues work in the orchard, they hear frantic calls for help. An eighteen-year-old girl, Prentice, has been missing -- and is later found murdered. Miss Dimple and her fellow teachers-turned-sleuths are determined to find the killer. Although Prentice had recently broken up with her boyfriend, the most obvious suspect isn't always the right one: Prentice may have been keeping some secrets; and a local woman claims to have witnessed the whole abduction. Figuring out what really happened to Prentice is sure to be a challenge. But Miss Dimple has never been daunted by a challenge

I haven't read any others in the series to to me it just seems that there are too many characters and I cannot tell them apart. SPrinkle in a few war time references.. that's about it. There was not much to the story.

Miss Dimple Kilpatrick and her friends pool their clues to help solve the mystery. As usual the WWII period details are right on. I know, because that was when I grew up, as did Ms. Ballard. The main characters have developed well over the series, and even the minor characters have depth to their personalities, which enables the author to bring them to the foreground for their brief contribution, and we care about the resolution of their part in the story. A very satisfying cozy mystery.
