Ice Whine and Irish Cheddar by Judy Volhart

I was beyond delighted to have Ice Whine and Irish Cheddar, book two in the Whine & Cheese Cozy Mystery Series by Canadian Author Judy Volhart. This is an interesting concept for a cozy mystery, the main character moves to a small town and opens a wine and cheese bistro. The menu features cheeses and wines with very cool tongue and cheek names names. On top of a great menu, main character Amalia has her best friend working for her, a boyfriend she could at one time only dream about and another murder victim on the premises!  I love this character, her very well meaning parents and I appreciate the Ontario Canada setting! While Ontario is towards the opposite side of where I live, I have visited Ontario and love the way Judy writes that makes it easy to see what it is like to live in Ontario in the winter. This mystery was not easy for me to figure out who did it and I loved the murder weapon in this story! You will have to read it to find out what I mean. Great cozy and fun to read in the sweltering heat of summer!

Will she be sharp, like an aged Irish Cheddar, or crumble like an aged Asiago?

Ice Whine and Irish Cheddar is out now and you can find it on Amazon by clicking here.
