About this author

Avery Aames, author of A Cheese Shop Mystery for Berkley Prime Crime, is the pseudonym for Daryl Wood Gerber.

Not one to simply read and cook, she tends to look for adventure. She has hitchhiked around Ireland by herself and she has jumped out of a perfectly good airplane.



LUCY BURDETTE: I love stir-fried dishes, though I'm never quite satisfied with my results compared to a good Chinese restaurant. But the craving hit me this week, and with asparagus still rocking the garden, I decided to try again.

I truly enjoyed this book. I opened it and finished in a day. I read another review that said "emotional roller coaster" and I have to agree. A woman tortured by her sister's death wrenched my heart.

A darling addition to the cozy market, with an organized protagonist you love, even though she'll drive you crazy reminding you about all the stuff you know you should be organizing. A clever mystery, a passionate friendship. Fun reading.
