Publisher's Summary

Apples are at the core of the family business run by Winona Mae Montgomery and her Granny Smythe. But this year's crop is unseasonably ripe with murder....

One rotten apple

Blossom Valley, West Virginia, is home to Smythe Orchards, Winnie and her Granny's beloved 25-acre farm and family business. But any way you slice it, it's struggling. That's why they're trying to drum up business with the "First Annual Christmas at the Orchard", a good old-fashioned holiday festival with enough delicious draw to satisfy apple-picking locals and cider-loving tourists alike - until the whole endeavor takes a sour turn when the body of Nadine Cooper, Granny's long-time, grudge-holding nemesis, is found lodged in the apple press. Now, with Granny the number one suspect, Winnie is hard-pressed to prove her innocence before the real killer delivers another murder....

SUPERB NEW SERIES

THIS NEW COZY IS ONE OF THE MOST WELL WRITTEN AND NARRATED BOOKS I HAVE LISTENED TO IN A WHILE. THE CHARACTERS ARE LIKEABLE. THE STORYLINE INTERESTING. THE RED HERRINGS EFFECTIVE. I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT ONE TO GET BETTER ACQUAINTED WITH WINNIE, GRANNIE, COLTON, DOT, JAKE, AND OTHERS.

Fun Holiday Story

Love holiday stories at Christmas. This one fit the bill. A lot like a Hallmark Movie with murder twisted in. Simple, loving characters I could get behind.

I want more!

I really enjoyed this book! The setting and characters were fun and I really enjoyed the main character. I really look forward to more books in this series.

Unrealistic

Could not finish the book. How unrealistic that grandma baked all of the goods for sale, yet had time to carry out long tours and various other tasks. Did I miss that they have several employees working in the shop and orchards? No other way for them to wrangle so many tourists and manage their business. Yet the book started out only saying they had no money, not that they would have a problem paying anyone. Sorry, this book is being returned.

Not for me

This book never grabbed my attention. The characters and plot seemed flat and formulaic. I didn't finish it.
