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

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.
