Apples are at the core of the family business run by Winona Mae Montgomery and her Granny Smythe. But this years crop is unseasonably ripe with murder . . . ONE ROTTEN APPLE Blossom Valley, West Virginia, is home to Smythe Orchards, Winnie and her Grannys beloved twenty-five-acre farm and family business. But any way you slice it, its struggling. Thats why theyre 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 alikeuntil the whole endeavor takes a sour turn when the body of Nadine Cooper, Grannys 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. RT Book Reviews on Murder in Real Time Includes Recipes!

Thank you @ElizaMarie
The coffees sound yummy! I personally don‘t like coffee but my two sister in laws that I am taking a trip with next week love it so I am going to offer it to them. Hope you are getting better! #CBBC #coffeebeanbookclub

This was a good little cozy set in a family run apple orchard. So of course someone gets killed there. My favorite characters were Kenny Rogers and Dolly the kittens 😸

So good! I didn‘t guess the killer or the motive. This was like a hug in a book: fall, apples, cider, and a Granny ❤️ definitely going to read or listen to more!

Avanders Oooh a cozy hug sounds perfect 🍎🔪 5mo

#momfail lol. 100 now faceless bunnies will be headed to daycare tomorrow bc I bought cheap food markers which did not work. Good thing they‘re still toddlers and won‘t judge 😂😂

Aims42 A+ for trying!! ♥️🐰 6mo
Chrissyreadit I would eat them….😘❤️ 6mo
DGRachel They are much better than my anchor cookie fail. I was in a hurry, so I used the pre-made sugar cookie dough you get in a tube, and it puffed up. Let‘s just say they were not fit for public viewing. 🍆 6mo

FantasyChick First glance, I thought they were bunny paw prints! I'd say a win either way 😊 6mo
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Yes, like @FantasyChick says, call them bunny paws. 6mo

I loved this cozy so much… what could be a better setting than an apple orchard?!? Great characters, a great mystery and I am so intrigued that I have already requested the second book in the series from the library!!

It‘s really satisfying to watch my stacks of books get shorter as I finally make my way through them. 😂 This is cute so far, and there was a little nod to Pittsburgh in the first few pages, so that‘s fun, too. (I really want some apple cider now, though! 😂) #appleciderslaying #cidershopmysteries #julieannelindsey #cozymystery #christmasread

Cute but pretty standard cozy. It took me awhile to warm up to the sheriff. But I loved the setting and would read the next one in the series to see if they get better.

Tori this was an incredible #cozyswap package! You found a cozy that takes place in the same part of West Virginia as me!?!? And an orchard??? One of my favorite places to be! And leaf bookmarks! ( I really do love trees that much🧡) and a book sleeve with a pocket (my favorite kind)- the green soft socks (😍🙌) snacks, coffee, candle and PUMPKIN MUG 🎃🍎🙌🎉 plus a very cozy soft, warm blanket! Thank you so much! You sent perfect package!

vkois88 Yay!!! I am so glad you like your package... I was so nervous 😂 It was very fun to shop for you, and sadly I couldn‘t get all the things lol 2y
BethM Epic package! That Ellery Adams series is my FAVORITE cozy series! 2y
Chrissyreadit @vkois88 I feel that way with every swap! I love curating fun items- and there‘s so many to choose from! But you literally put together a perfect package 🧡🍎🧡🍎🧡 2y

Started my morning by finishing this #HolidayRead for #WinterGames! It was a cute cozy set in an apple orchard in the Eastern Panhandle of WV (which was obviously the deciding factor when I picked it off the new books shelf at the library!). My only complaint comes from her description of being in Northern WV when no one from WV would call the EP that, but that‘s a very small detail only I would find irritating! 😂

I found the characters to be fresh and engaging and the mystery was stellar, one you can really take a big bite of and still be wrong. The setting was pure bliss, someplace I would visit often.

Mehso-so

I‘m a cozy fan, but as I get older, I‘ve realised that I don‘t like very defensive main characters. I enjoyed the story and the side characters, but I had a little problem with Winnie. There were a few unrealistic points, but I‘d read a book 2 to see how the series goes!
