Posted in Cozy, reading on August 29, 2011

It was a great weekend, but maybe not one for reading.  Took me several days to read the book by Lee Harris and that is something I normally knock out in a day. 

On Friday I got another book in my mailbox.  Another cozy, Lost and Fondue by Avery Aames.  This is the second in the Cheese Shop Mystery series. The first is The Long Quiche Goodbye.

From the back of the book:

Charlotte Bessette – proprietor of Providence, Ohio’s, charming Cheese Shop – is busy catering a fund-raiser for her best friend, Meredith.  In addition to gourmet fondues, Charlotte is serving an array of delicious cheeses and delightful wines – the perfect complement to the setting of the wine tasting party, a once abandoned winery.  But not everyone is happy, for the winery has long been a source of local legends about hidden treasures – and buried bodies.

When a fresh body is found in the wine cellar and Meredith’s niece, Quinn, becomes the chief suspect, Charlotte trades in her fondue fork for a flashlight to prove the case against Quinn has more holes than a slice of Swiss cheese.  But as Charlotte’s sleuthing starts to turn up the truth, the killer starts to turn up the heat.
