LET'S GET COZY! SOUR APPLES: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED 
SOUR APPLES
An Orchard Mystery
BY SHEILA CONNOLLY
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Apple orchard owner Meg Corey is finally feeling settled into her new life in Granford--she's made friends, and her relationship with Seth Chapin is heating up--when her old Boston coworker Lauren Converse comes barreling into town, running the Congressional campaign for a former hometown football hero. But Meg doesn't have time to worry about why Seth seems reluctant to back Lauren's campaign when her neighbor, local dairy farmer Joyce Truesdell, is found dead from an apparent kick to the head from one of her cows.

When an autopsy shows that the fatal blow actually came from a weapon, Meg is even more troubled. Popular opinion points to Joyce's husband as the culprit, but Meg can't help wondering if someone wanted the outspoken dairy farmer out of the way--but why? She'll have to find out who had a beef with the victim, before she's the next one to get creamed...
INCLUDES DELICIOUS RECIPES
 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Pseudonym for Sarah Atwell.

Sheila Connolly is two people these days: herself and Sarah Atwell.

Sarah is writing a new mystery series for Berkley Prime Crime. The first book of the Glassblowing Mystery series, Through a Glass, Deadly, was published March 4, 2008.

Sheila is writing a second new mystery series for Berkley Prime Crime. The first book of the Orchard Mystery series, One Bad Apple, will appear in August 2008.

Sheila's vital statistics: Married (to my first and only husband), one daughter, three cats. I live in a Victorian home in Massachusetts, not far from Cape Cod. I have more degrees than I know what to do with. Over the course of my life, I've lived in seven states, nineteen towns, and two foreign countries.

During my long and varied career, I've been:
  • an art historian (medieval architecture)
  • an investment banker in San Francisco and Philadelphia
  • a non-profit fundraiser
  • a professional genealogist (I had my own business, Lost Ancestors)
  • and finally, a mystery writer.
I really hope the writer label sticks, because I'm having a great time.

I love to travel, I can fix almost anything around an old house, and I'm passionate about genealogy.

The title made me laugh as I can remember the faces my boys made when they first bit into a sour apple - too funny! That alone - plus recipes! - makes me want to read this cozy.

I love that the main character owns an apple orchard. You can make so many different things out of apples, but you need to watch out for the cows if you have them there too!
