Clobbered by Camembert & A Pizza to Die For

111494749467581  An odd combination perhaps, Camembert and Pizza, but still pizza has cheese so I guess it is okay.  Read these two last night, both books in series that I really enjoy and these did not disappoint.

In Clobbered by Camembert, the reader is again immersed in the town life by a wide cast of recurring characters and following Charlotte around the town as she investigates the latest murder in hopes of clearing the local bee keeper.  Complicating matters are a Winter Wonderland Faire, her ex back in town, Matthew’s  (her cousing and co-proprietor)  ex hanging around, a police chief slightly perturbed with Charlotte’s nosing around, a new employee, and a unique murder weapon.  The story has plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing throughout.  Another great read in the Cheese Shop Mystery series.

In A Pizza to Die For, Eleanor finds her livelihood under attack from a new pizza parlor about to open.  The death of her competition puts Eleanor squarely in the frame for his murder.  Of course, this leads her to open her own investigation to clear her name and keep A Slice of Delight from going under.  This book and in fact all the books in the series I have read so far are notable for the way the relationships between the characters are developed.  Realistic dialog and reactions drive the character interactions.  The small town setting is charming and the mystery is well done.  Another winner in this series!
