Days of Wine and Roquefort: 10/23/19
Days of Wine and Roquefort by Avery Aames is the fifth book Cheese Shop Mystery series. Matthew asks Charlotte to take in a visiting sommelier. On a day when Charlotte is busy working in her garage, Noelle is murdered.
Charlotte's main clue is "Hell's key," uttered by Noelle as she was dying. Like the previous books, Noelle's death is tied up with her past. There's also evidence of shading things afoot with the winery she was here to help.
The set up for Noelle's murder reminded me of a pared down Study in Scarlet, the first Sherlock Holmes mystery. While Charlotte does dig deep into Noelle's past, the novel saves us from a lengthy flashback.
Also there is lots of cheese and a number of new recipes to try. Book six is As Gouda as Dead (2015)
