Apple Cider Slaying (A Cider Shop Mystery Book 1)
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 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.”

Net Galley Holiday Review:
APPLE CIDER SLAYING by Julie Anne Lindsey is the first book in the A Cider Shop Mystery series. It’s the story of Winona “Winnie” Mae Montgomery, Granny Smythe and the fate of Smythe Orchard in the quaint little town of Blossom Valley. Makes me smile as we are introduced to the charterers,family and orchard as Winnie tries to save the farm,Granny and a new romance with Colton. A great new series that I highly recommend you read.
