"Cheese shop owner Charlotte Bessette's life seems quieter than ever with her fiance 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."-- From back cover.… (mehr)

Wow, what can I say! This book, Days of Wine and Roquefort had me intrigued from chapter one. I have always loved A Cheese Shop Mystery series. If you love food, wine, and the art of entertaining you will one get hungry while reading and two not be able to put it down. My thirst was not quenched till the last page.
One of the many things I love about Avery Aames is her characters. You are able to pick up any in the series and feel like you have not been left behind. She explains everything for those who need a little catching up. Not only will you find great mystery and wine but you will find twists and turns at every corner.
Things are beginning to finally slow down for Charlotte since Matthew, her cousin has married. Matthew asks Charlotte for a favor. He asks for her to let a friend of his who is going to be the new manager at the local winery to stay with her for a while. Of course Charlotte agrees. But Charlotte has a sense that Noelle is hiding something. Not until she finds Noelle dead in the garage with a cork screw in her neck does she go on high alert! What in the world could she have been up to and why kill her??? Charlotte begins to try and weed out all of the potential suspects. She has to walk a thin line since the owner of the winery and his daughter are high on the list of suspects. Will Charlotte be able to find the killer before she becomes his or her next target?
I recommend this book to all those cozy and foodies out there looking for a great read. I warn you though, don't read hungry.
I was given this book to read and review for an honest opinion. ( )

I enjoy reading books that have a theme and food is a great one. I get to learn a bit about something new and enjoy a good mystery to boot. I am definitely going to have to try the recipes at the end including the one for the cheesecake.
This mystery involves cheese shop owner Charlotte Bessette and her house guest Noelle Adams. Charlotte is asked to host Noelle who is traveling around to to help increase business for the local winery. When Noelle is found dead, Charlotte finds herself trying to figure out the truth of who killed her.
I enjoyed seeing how the characters interacted and helped each other work out their problems, from the grandmother with her plays that had a theme that went along with a past problem, to the games played together to talk out issues.
This is the fifth book in the cheese shop mysteries. While it would help you to understand some of the character relationships to have read the other books, it is not a necessity. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good mystery and enjoys learning about new things.
I received a copy of the book for free to review from the author. ( )

In this Cheese Shop Mystery, Charlotte's fianacé, Jordan, has gone off to the trial that will help end his involvement in the WITSEC program, leaving Charlotte and her other cast of characters from Providence, Ohio, to solve the mystery of who killed her house guest, Noelle, and why. More and more of Charlotte's friends and family are becoming involved in snooping (as Police Chief Urso calls it) and with as many as five suspects she needs all the help she can get.

I really enjoy this series but this one came together a little roughly for me. There was too much conclusion jumping. ( )

Charlotte's cousin Matthew has a friend, Noelle, moving to Providence to manage a local winery, and temporarily moves in with Charlotte. Noelle shares a tour of the winery with them where Charlotte begins to suspect that the owner's daughter isn't happy about the new employee.

Several days later, Noelle turns up dead and Charlotte feels that she needs to investigate into the murder.

Fun installment with twists and turns. ( )

Days Of Wine And Roquefort is the 5th book in the A Cheese Shop Mystery series.

Another fine book from Avery Aames.

Now that Charlotte's cousin, Matthew, has married, things are returning to normal at her house. Charlotte has decided to start refinishing an old desk that she has. Matthew has asked her to provide a room for a friend from Cleveland, Noelle, who will become the new business manager at a local winery. They all are attending a tour of the winery and Charlotte senses some bad feelings between Noelle and the winery owner's daughter and the winery manager. Then a couple days later Charlotte comes home to find Noelle in the garage, dead, with a corkscrew in her neck. Quite naturally since it happened on her property, Charlotte feels the need to find who the murderer was and why. The winery owner is not above suspicion, Nor is his daughter, who is just a bit worried that Noelle will marry her father and take over the business. And the winery manager is might also fear losing his job.

Most all the character from the previous books are back to help Charlotte investigate the murder. Charlotte's boyfriend, Jordan, is away, testifying in a trial that will hopefully get him released from the witness protection. Rebecca is around to help, using her newly found "expertise", that she has acquired from watching TV and movies. Though she may go on and on, I do love her character.

Delicious sounding recipes are also included and through out the book are description of various cheeses from around the world.

I'm looking forward the next book from Avery Aames. ( )
