A new series debut from Odelia Grey mystery author Sue Ann Jaffarian! Granny was famous for her award-winning apple pies-and notorious for murdering her husband Jacob at their homestead in Julian, California. The only trouble is, Granny was framed, then murdered. For more than one hundred years, Granny's spirit has been searching for someone to help her see that justice is served—and she hits pay dirt when she pops in to a séance attended by her great-great-great-granddaughter, modern-day divorced mom Emma Whitecastle. Together, Emma and Granny Apples solve mysteries of the past—starting with Granny's own unjust murder rap in the final days of the California Gold Rush. Along with a sprinkling of history, this spirited new mystery series features the amateur sleuth team of Emma Whitecastle and the spirit of her pie-baking great-great-great-grandmother, Granny Apples. "A charming tale, as appealing as apple pie. I predict a long life (and afterlife) for Sue Ann's latest series."—Harley Jane Kozak, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity award-winning author of Dating Dead Men "Take colorful characters in a charming setting, mix in a dash of romance, add a pinch of the paranormal, and serve it up like one of Granny's famous pies. I guarantee you'll be back for seconds."—Deborah Sharp, author of Mama Rides Shotgun

Series: A Ghost of Granny Apples Mystery (#1)
Wonderful sweet cozy mystery. Smart adults living realistic lives struggle to come to terms with a ghostly presence. The ghost had an agenda that she really wants taken care of and has been waiting for generations. Emma is the one to help her and help her she does. Granny Apples, the ghost, is a fun...
A fun light cozy mystery with adult who think before acting. I enjoyed this read very much and the setting of Catalina Island was very nice. The main characters where educated grown ups with life history behind them. I found their mature view so nice after all the lust infused books I've come across...
This is actually a 3.5 star read. Started out slow for me, but when I picked it up the 2nd time it grabbed me right up. I think Emma is a bit wishy-washy, but think that might change in future books. And she pulled a TSTL move at the end, but I still have a good feeling about this series. Recomm...
I'm not able to finish this book. It's not so interesting... in fact, it is boring. I hate leaving books unfinished, but well, I can't continue anymore. Emma is not a very likeable character, and the situation is kind of lame.
What can I say? I borrowed it from the library after I read Sharon’s review. I enjoyed reading this book. It’s a quirky mystery involving a spunky ghost of a Granny, several murders, one of them quite recent, an amateur sleuth Emma, and a grumpy attorney/landowner Phil. And a treasure of gold. The g...
