Book Review - The Long Quiche Goodbye

{this post has affiliate links}

I love to read. My perfect day would entail curing up on the couch with a good book for hours. There are several authors that I read regularly, but every once in  a while I am stumped for what to read. On a recent suggestion from Amazon, I picked up the first book in Avery Aames' cheeseshop series, The Long Quiche Goodbye.

The book centers around Charlotte, a young woman who is taking over her grandparent's cheeseshop. Along with her cousin and some friends, Charlotte not only has to get the newly renovated shop up and running, but she has to help prove her grandmother's innocence. During the grand opening of the cheesehop, someone used one of Charlotte's cheese knives to do away with the town scourge.  There is no shortage of suspects, Charlotte doesn't think the local police, are moving fast enough with the mayoral election coming up, so she starts asking questions and putting pieces of the puzzle together. Ed wasn't very well liked, but everyone seems to have an alibi except Charlotte's grandmother. There are some fun twists and turns, and a bit of romance in the air.

My favorite parts, hand-down, were the discussions about cheeses and wines. There is plenty of useful and interesting information woven into the storyline and plot. Along with a few recipes in the back of the book as well.

Overall, I was pleased with this new author's debut in the series, and I'm planning to pick up the next one soon. It was a quick and pleasant read with likeable characters, great imagery and a good story.
