After a dangerously malicious holiday season, Winnie is eager to put the past behind her and look to the future for herself and her cider shop business. She opens her beloved mail pouch barn for a hometown wedding venue and the venture seems to be a success. Until she spots her ex in a heated discussion with the groom, that is. Winnie moves in to break up the fight, but it seems she’s too late–the next time she sees the groom, he is under the wheels of a truck, dead. Since her ex, Hank, is missing, Winnie can’t stop herself from investigating both the disappearance and the murder. (Much to the chagrin of the Detective in charge!)
It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Julie Anne Lindsay, and this series is no exception. I love the West Virginia setting, the small-town character canvas, the wit, and the slowly simmering connection between Winnie and Colton. The only think I’m not a fan of is the long wait until the next book is released!
