Love and Fat-Free Cheese by Crissy Sharp
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received eBook to review from publisher
Genre: Clean Romance/Suspense
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 thoughts: The first thing that I thought of when I saw this title was "diet cookbook." I had to take a second look and read the blurb to find out that it was in fact a novel that sounded very interesting. There are unique references to food.
This book has romance and suspense. It begins with Juliet and her brother at a yoga class. I related with Juliet and found her personality adorable from the first pages. She has a great support group in her family. She is close to her brother,Everett, and her sister, Eva. They have been through some tough times and are stronger as a family because of their trials. One of the main trials throughout the book is they are dealing with the aftermath of Eva's fiancee's disappearance. This is where the suspense comes in. Her sister is followed everywhere she goes and the bad guys aren't giving up, even after two years. This leads to interesting, suspenseful, and dramatic situations.
I loved the romance aspect of the book. Juliet has a couple of guys interested in her, but only one captures her heart. The romance is cute and full of misunderstandings and misinterpretations.
This book is well written. It has great pacing. The characters and the plot are engaging. I will be watching out for books written by Crissy Sharp in the future.
This is a clean romance with a little bit of violence.
