Short Synopsis
Julie Anne Lindsey presents Book 1 in the Cider Shop Mystery series.

Full Synopsis
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 . . .

". I have listened to other books narrated by Amy Melissa Bentley and I really enjoy her books. She has a pleasant voice with great expression." ----Carla Loves to Read

"She [Bentley] is a new-to-me narrator, even though she has narrated over a hundred audiobooks!! I loved the way she brought all the different characters to life and I especially loved it when the characters got all soppy over the kittens."---The Secret Library
