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 . .

My Review
The cover, the plot, the setting prompted me to read this story and I wasn't disappointed. Apples, orchards, Christmas, family, murder how can you not love this story.
Winnie tries to save the family business by creating new apple cider and opening a shop to sell them. To do this they need funding but a corpse is found in the cider press which is the grandmother's number one enemy and Granny is the biggest suspect. Winnie has to investigate to save her grandmother and their orchard, irritating, however, the sheriff and the murderer.
Winnie is a great protagonist, she loves her family and their orchard, she has a wonderful relationship with her grandmother and she misses her grandfather who is no longer there. She is very sweet but also determined, intelligent. I also like her relationship with the sheriff especially as it changes throughout history.
It's written very well, there's a lot of suspense, twists and lots of little clues. I loved the setting this small rural town full of gossip but also of friendly and welcoming people.
Great debut for this new series, I can't wait to read the new adventures of Winona and her grandmother and above all I hope for new tasty recipes to try.
If you love cozy mysteries, apple cider and small rural communities this is the perfect book for you
