This is book number 1 in the A Cider Shop Mystery series.


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 . . .
Blossom Valley, West Virginia, is home to Smythe Orchards, Winnie and her Granny’s beloved twenty-five-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 . . .
“The characters are delightful . . . Plenty of action and suspense.”

“Readers will appreciate the good will of Lindsey's characters in this warmly written, cider-centric cozy series launch.”
Kirkus Reviews

“An absolute delight!... A thoroughly inhabited, well-written story! The characters are multi-dimensional, and the attention to detail makes it feel like I’m reading about real people and events. Winnie, especially, is easy to relate to. Julie Ann Lindsey’s love for West Virginia also shines through, making for a transporting and totally engrossing read.”
