APPLES AND ALIBIS

That's the last time Amy agrees to do a favor for a stranger...
Down South Cafe owner, Amy Flowers is in over her head. Operating a cafe while hosting the first Farmers' Market in Winter Garden has her swimming in apples. And when an elderly woman calls the cafe, pleading for a delivery for her upcoming party, Amy relents, feeling compelled to help the desperate customer. But when she arrives, the woman is slumped over her kitchen table, and Amy is catapulted into the middle of a small town crime. Guilt-ridden for not arriving earlier to save the woman, she sets out to unravel the mystery surrounding the woman. Now, between running the cafe and dealing with the chaos of the farmers' market, Amy is squeezing in a murder investigation, a run-in with her boyfriend's mom, and her own mother's quirky life decisions. Life can't get any worse...or can it? This cafe owner needs a break--in the case.

Dilly Boyd stuck her head inside the door of the DOWN SOUTH CAFÉ and called, "Big Harry Ostermann needs a bandage! He got a splinter from his apple crate!"
"Someone needs to tell us what's going on here," Mom said.
