Take a bite out of Appleton, North Carolina!
Kari Jacobs starts a new life 3,000 miles away from her hometown, but it’s not by choice. Her aunt, who was also a judge and Kari’s mentor, won’t see her anymore and she doesn’t know why. She has lost her job and her law career is in tatters. She never imagined herself practicing law in a small Southern town like Appleton. But it’s the only place that would hire her.
Taste the sweetness of quiet, country life.
What she finds in Appleton surprises her: a new friend named Ashley, who is accused of a murder no one wants to solve, a gang of mean old ladies, the perfect cup of coffee, and the cutest Great Dane puppy ever to stumble over four paws.
You’ll come for the delicious Southern flavor but you’ll stay for the hospitality!
In finding justice for her friend, Kari discovers the truth can be elusive. Even here, in idyllic Appleton, where the people are friendly, the living is easy, and the city officials are…corrupt?
Could there be something rotten at core of this apple?
