Overview

The national bestselling author of the Orchard Mysteries presents this short prequel that started Meg Corey's mysterious adventures on the apple orchard in the small town of Granford, Massachusetts.

Out of a job and living alone in a drafty Colonial house, Meg Corey is supposed to be fixing the house up to sell, but now she's got the flu and she's freezing and she feels very sorry for herself. Then Deborah Warren shows up to distract her--but is Deborah a ghost, or just the product of Meg's feverish imagination?

Choosing to believe that Deborah really is a ghost, Meg sets out to discover the truth of why she's been around for 200 years and help her find home.

Good read for five minutes. Just wish I could have known I was only paying for a 12 page story.

This is where it starts, this short prequel. Only I wish I had read it first. I love the whole cozy series. I have read them all. Meg Corey comes a long way from this book to the latest. I can't wait for the next installment!

Cute short story.... Leads the way for the other books...

This was a little too short. This story would have been really good if it was longer. Not necessarily a full length novel, but longer. It was still good.

I guess I ordered the wrong thing. I think I'd enjoy the full story. But being so short I was disappointed.

I thought this was a cute prequel/short story. Wish it was a bit longer.

I really enjoy this series. I've read all of the current books and liked the idea of a prequel. I knew that I was buying a short story, but I didn't realize that 10 of the 27 pages were a preview of the first book. Total let down.

This is a great little story. I'd even like to see it expanded into a novel!
