Days of Wine and Roquefort by Avery Aames

Days of Wine and Roquefort (A Cheese Shop Mystery, #5)

Picture and synopsis from Goodreads:

Murder, like Roquefort, stinks...

Cheese Shop owner Charlotte Bessette’s life seems quieter than ever with her fiancĂ© out of town and her cousin Matthew and his children out of the house. But before she can put up her feet and enjoy a glass of chardonnay, Matthew asks her to play host to Noelle Adams, a bright sommelier visiting to help grow business for the local winery.

An affable wine aficionado, Noelle is paired well with the cheese expert Charlotte—but something seems to be troubling the secretive houseguest, and Charlotte’s life is upended when she finds the sparkling woman dead. Between Noelle’s hotheaded ex,  the cagey owners of the winery, its jaded manager, and a wily reporter, Charlotte has her pick of suspects, but she needs to act fast—this is a mystery that only gets more dangerous with age.

What I Thought:

This was a great addition to a really great series.  I love visiting the town of Providence and all of it's quirky inhabitants.  Charlotte is a great protagonist and she usually ends up getting herself into some sticky situations.  This book kept me guessing till the very end.  Charlotte wasn't sure who the killer was till the very end either.  This book grabbed my attention and kept me enthralled the whole way through. My mouth watered most of the time from the descriptions of the luscious cheeses that Charlotte sells.  There were also so laugh-out-loud moments in this book between two of the town's shop keepers.  I really look forward to more in this series.  If you are looking for a fast paced, exciting story that will keep you guessing and turning the pages, then this is the book for you.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
