Review; Apple Cider Slaying (A Cider Shop Mystery #1) by Julie Anne Lindsey

Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the Christmas-themed cosy mystery Apple Cider Slaying (A Cider Shop Mystery #1) by Julie Anne Lindsey through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
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 . . .

My Thoughts on the Book
Apple Cider Slaying was a cosy mystery that put me in Christmas spirit. It had well written characters, an interesting plot, a couple of cute kittens and a charming setting. It's the first book in a new series and I would love to read the future books. An added bonus was the recipes in the back.
