Joyce Tremel will be releasing the first entry in her Cider House Mystery Series, titled Deadly to the Core. 35-year-old Kate Mulligan is at a low point in her life, having recently lost her husband in a car crash, when she faces a more distant bereavement, the death of her great uncle Stan, who has left her a fruit orchard in a small town near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. She decides to make this a new start, opening a cider house on the property. Unfortunately, tragedy strikes her once again when she finds the body of the orchard manager. Tremel is also the author of the Brewing Trouble Mystery Series, starring a certified brewmaster in Pennsylvania, and (as Joyce St. Anthony) the Homefront News Mystery Series, starring the editor of a WWII-era newspaper.
