Julie Anne Lindsey returns with another installment to the Cider Shop Mystery series. With autumn and Halloween approaching, pumpkins are everywhere in this book! Winnie is once again doing her best with the Fall Festival, however, she reached a setback when Mr. Potter is found dead, hidden under a tarp in the back of her pickup truck. Now to clear her name, Winnie must use her skills and instinct to figure out who the real murderer is.
I really enjoyed THE CIDER SHOP RULES because of its fall vibe. There’s a seasonal theme to it, but I think it can also be enjoyed at any time of year too. The mystery of this story is well done and not too over the top. Julie Ann Lindsey Lindsey does a great job of keeping readers on their toes and keeping this story engaging. I already can’t wait for the next book in the series.
Autumn in Blossom Valley means pumpkin patches are ripe and Winona Mae Montgomery and her Granny Smythe’s cider shop is flourishing. But with this season comes . . .
A FATAL HARVEST
The Fall Festival is in full swing. Civil War reenactors from three counties are partaking in Blossom Valley’s tribute to John Brown. Blue Ridge Mountain foliage is in full bloom. And best of all is Jacob Potter’s pumpkin farm where his hay rides, piglet races, pumpkin picking and corn maze are time-honored draws for locals and tourists alike. That’s why it’s such a shock when Mr. Potter is found dead, hidden under a tarp in the back of Winnie’s pickup truck. This certainly betrays Potter’s reputation as one of the town’s most popular citizens. Fortunately, when it comes to solving a murder, no one has a patch on Winnie. Now, all eyes are on her to do it. Unfortunately, that includes those of the killer who’ll do anything to keep an orchard full of secrets buried.
