Apple Die (Apple Orchard Cozy Mystery Book 1)

An Apple a Day Can’t Keep the Murder Away.
"When Chelsea Thomas was left at the altar, she moved home to live on the family orchard with her quirky aunt, Miss May. All Chelsea wanted was hot cocoa and apple pie. Then she found a dead body. Face down in her favorite stream.
Now she’s in the middle of a murder investigation, and a killer is on the loose in her quaint small town.
Miss May is a former New York City lawyer, so she thinks she and Chelsea can catch the criminal on their own. Local business owner Teeny is nosy, opinionated, and convinced the murder was inspired by her favorite British mystery series. And Chelsea is caught up in the amateur investigation, a timid Watson on her first case.
Will the stress of the amateur sleuthing be enough to break Chelsea for good? Or will it be exactly what she needs to get over her ex, and learn to be happy?
Most importantly, will this rag-tag crew find the killer before he strikes again?
You’ll love this cozy because it’s clean, it has lots of comedy and the murder keeps you guessing until the end.
The Case of the Desire Spell: A Hillcrest Witch Mystery by Amorette Anderson
A little while ago we were lucky enough to have a free book from this series, included in our cozy mystery collection for the month. I received a lot of feedback from you guys that you loved the book, so I thought you would want to know about Amorette's new book. It isn't free, but it's around the $0.99 price point so well worth picking up if you enjoyed the free book from the series.
What do you really, really want -- more than anything else in the world?
When Hillcrest's only lawyer is found dead in her office, it's up to Penny and her crew to track down the killer.
Penny believes that the lawyer’s death might have been caused by a trouble-making magical being. The problem is, she doesn’t know which one!
She can’t overlook the fact that her crush, a smokin’ hot vampire named Max, might be involved. And what about Silas, a beach-bum werewolf from the Water Realm who has recently moved to town?
With the help of her knitting circled turned witch coven, her feline familiar Turkey, and a blue haired witch next-door, Penny decides to collect the clues.
Could learning the Desire Spell help her crack the case?

Try Something Different
Over the Christmas holidays I got chatting to the author of this book, and promised to give her first book in the series a shout out. It isn't a free book, but if you love crafts cozy mysteries then you'll probably like this one.
Accused of murder. Who framed Katie?
Katie is busy enough as a single mom with a series of dead-end jobs. She barely has time for her passion-paper crafting.
But when one of her housecleaning clients turns up dead, stabbed with a paper crafting tool, Katie is in trouble.
She has her own ideas about who the real murderer is, but the lead inspector won't listen.
Can she dig up evidence before another victim drops dead? Or will she take the fall for a crime she didn't commit?

Her plans go haywire fast when her old nemesis and high school bully Whitney Sims turns up dead, and Harper is implicated in her murder.
Between a detective who doesn’t appreciate her amateur sleuthing skills, running a bookstore she purchased on a whim, and studying to re-sit her witch’s exam, Harper has her hands full. She’s determined to find out whodunit, and clear her name, but she quickly finds the murderer has other plans.
