Review: Love and Fat-Free Cheese by Crissy Sharp

Love and Fat-Free Cheese by Crissy Sharp


Book Description:

Fat-free cheese is okay--unless you've tasted real cheese. Juliet Easton learns this about love too as she uncovers who truly loves her, and who is using her to get to the secret she knows about the disappearance of her sister's fiance and the pharmaceutical conspiracy he plans to reveal. Can she protect her loved ones' lives and her heart? You'll be hooked from Asiago to Zamorano cheese in this suspenseful and hilarious romantic thriller.

My Review:


I absolutely LOVED this book! Mystery, love, suspense, and humor makes for one great read. The cover is adorable. With the title, I thought it might be another of the food mystery-type books, but it wasn't. In fact, I really liked the title and where it came from. I read the entire book to my husband while we drove and he really enjoyed it too. The only problem was that the proofreader/editor doesn't understand dialogue punctuation which made reading out loud a little difficult. That was disappointing, but the book was fabulous and I wouldn't let the typos keep you from reading it! I can't wait to read another book by this author.

Countdown to Christmas Romance Anthology



My Christmas novella, Home for the Holidays, came out last year as part of a series of sweet romances based on Christmas carols. Each day counting down the Christmas, a new novella was released. It was so fun to be part of that series! How great to have my book associated with these other fabulous authors!

This year, the books have been collected into an anthology where you can get all eight novellas for the price of one! If that isn't a bargain, I don't know what is! So here's a little more information about it...
