Gone For Gouda

The excellent second installment in The Cheese Shop Mysteries is such a fun read!

Gone for Gouda is the second book in the Cheese Shop Mystery series by Korina Moss, and it did not disappoint!

We return to Yarrow Glen, where Willa Bauer runs a gourmet cheese shop and is preparing for the town's fall festival and an influencer event. A famous vegan chef/influencer is scheduled to promote her book and a vegan cheese line at Willa's shop. When the influencer turns out to be a carnivore and a fraud and ends up dead, and cheese shop employee Archie is the last person to see her alive and becomes a suspect, Willa and friends jump into action.

This one was so fun! It's a well-crafted mystery with everything I love in a cozy, good writing, charming setting, entertaining plot, lively characters, cute animals, and a likable sleuth. Willa and her delightful supporting cast have hit their stride as amateur investigators. They had a large suspect pool to contend with and a mystery that took some twists and turns. Willa's relationship with Baz is still refreshingly platonic, which I love! Plus, the story takes place in the Fall, so we get extra-cozy vibes. Be warned, though, that this book will make you crave cheese! The food descriptions are mouth-watering (recipes included), and I learned some things about Gouda cheese, so now I have to find a gourmet cheese shop! This is a great new cozy mystery series, and I look forward to book 3.

Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for the gifted ARC in exchange for an honest review.

My steep also brought Fall vibes, Cranberry Autumn tea from Harney & Sons--a black tea flavored with cranberry and orange.
