11th book in the Orchard Mysteries Series
The usually quiet town of Granford, Massachusetts, is even drowsier during the colder months. But this year it's in for a jolt when Monica Whitman moves into town. She has already sold the town board on a new, fun way to bring in visitors during the off-season: WinterFare, which will feature local foods (such as Meg's apples) and crafts, as well as entertainment.

I always wanted to write, but it took me until 2001 to even try to write a book, until 2006 to find an agent, and until 2008 before I could hold a published book of my own in my hands.
