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.

And if Sue Ann wasn’t busy enough, she is working on a third series, with an adorable vampire couple as the main characters! This is one productive gal! So I was happy that she could spare…
