    1. I would have given this one 4 stars but the secondary character Rebecca, just irritated me this time out. Instead of coming across as panicky, as befitting the situation her character was in, she came across pushy, bossy and a tad hysterical. Otherwise, the story was a good one - interesting suspects and good character tension. All of the characters (with the exception of Rebecca) are becoming more likeable with each book and the author does an excellent job writing a vivid picture of the town a [...]

    2. "I thought I'd seen a ghost, Charlotte," Matthew said.Charlotte of Fromagerie Besstte is setting up a tent for the annual Winter Wonderland Faire in Providence, Ohio when she meets an old friend of her mother's. Kaitlyn Clydesdale is a rather obnoxious woman who is in negotiations to buy the land beside local beekeeper, Ipo Ho. Her plan is to compete with Ipo for the honey business. Ipo is dating Charlotte's assistant Rebecca who is terribly upset by the whole situation. Ipo becomes the prime su [...]

    3. Charlotte Bessette—proprietor of Le Petit Fromagerie, affectionately known in Providence, Ohio, as the Cheese Shop—is busy setting up her tent for the town’s Winter Wonderland faire, where she’ll offer fine wines and scrumptious cheeses. In the midst of the preparations, Charlotte meets an old friend of her mother, Kaitlyn Clydesdale, who has come back to Providence with plans to start a new honeybee farm.When Kaitlyn is found dead in the cottage of Charlotte’s assistant Rebecca, suspi [...]

    4. Really 3.5 starsThis started out really slow, and Charlotte was really annoying for the like first 1/3 of the book, but actually the last 2/3 of the book was very good, a huge improvement from the first two in the series. However, Rebecca was extremely annoying and pushy throughout the book. This one gets 3.5 stars, because it was very good by the end, however Rebecca was so annoying it took away from the book. I also, hope Charlotte can get some better investigation techniques by the next book. [...]

    5. I normally love this series but things felt forced this time around. Suddenly Charlotte is surrounded by suitors, Rebecca has turned into a spoiled brat and Matthew's ex has the run of the town and no one puts her in her place. Although I love learning about the cheeses, not sure that the series will continue to tempt

    6. This one wasn't as strong as the other two novels in the series. For one, the mystery was weaker and, two, Rebecca was annoying as all get out. It was like she was a totally different character. Third, there was far too much romance and not enough mystery.I do like the cheese references, but I don't like all the love stuff.

    7. Read this out of sequence, but it was still good. Lots of characters in this, but she does provide a guide in case you need to refresh. Good story with plausible ending.

    8. Wow, I have a great opening sentence for this review, however, it would give away too much and this book deserves to be read soDo you enjoy cheese, the smell, taste, pairings, and appearance of cheese? Yes? Well, do you enjoy reading about small towns that a cheese store might be one of the exotic stores in town? Yes? Hmmn, well do you enjoy warm family interactions? Yes? Finally, do you love a sudden murder to stun you out of the bucolic setting? O.K. You will adore "Clobbered by Camembert." Th [...]

    10. Gave this book one star because there was nothing lowerThe heroine goes downhill fast when she goes to the murder scene, sees a man leaving, and decided to chase him down, all throught the town. She catches him, gets him on the ground, and steps on his wrist. While he's in this postition, she argues with 2 different men, one of the them police chief, and the guy on the ground just lays theree on, he's not strong enough to move his arm away??? And why does the police chief let him lay there goes [...]

    11. 3,5 stars. I really like this series and I love the small town, cozy feeling, but I was once again bothered by the sheer number of characters in this series. In other series characters pop in and out so we can see what they're up to, but they don't have to be involved in every book in some way. I wish the author would use that technique because it was annoying to be like, "oh, Deliliah is back, who is she again?" when Deliliah and a lot of other people like that had no real necessity to the stor [...]

    12. Well it as okay. Some of the supporting characters are really annoying. Especially Rebecca. Her going around saying your the murderer all the time. I just wanted to slap her. Liked the other books better. Love the cheese discussion though. Grandparents are my favorite characters.

    13. Good installment in the series with a culprit that I didn't see coming. I did find Rebecca pushy and annoying in this book, hopefully that will be better in the next. Can't wait to see what happens with Charlotte in the next book!

    14. This story was totally inane. I enjoyed the first book in the series, somehow missed the second book, and after reading this one, I won't waste my time reading any more by this author.

    15. This continuing saga was a little slow in this book The culprit still wasn't revealed until the second last chapter.Ex's = who knew!!!

    16. Another good book to the series. So far I like the characters, the plot, and the ending with a twist. Her recipes and cheese are fun. I like her other main characters as well.

    17. Ms Aames did it again with a wonderful book. Mystery, Drama, a bit of comedy, family, friends, recipes, community, etc. Bringing back characters you've come to enjoy and know and love from the other books. But if you haven't read the other books don't be sad because you won't be lost there is enough of the 'past' in this book that will clue you in so you will have the information that you will need so you won't be lost. Keeps you on your toes as to helping the local cheese show owner trying to k [...]

    18. This was a win that has been on the book shelf for some time. It was only so so reading for me. The author was nice enough to list all the characters in the preface but when there are so many characters and you break away from reading I get confused as to who is who. Other folks commented about a dislike for a character and I had to agree one character was quite irritating, but that could also be true in life. Not fantastic, but not a terrible one either.

    19. The town is gearing up for the Winter Wonderland fair where the Cheese Shop will have a booth. Kaitlyn Clydesdale, who grew up in Providence. breezes into town with grand plans of buying up land and starting a competing honeybee farm. Kaitlyn proves to be a cut throat business woman and is killed in short order. Unfortunately, the prime suspect - the established honeybee farmer, is the boyfriend of Rebecca, Charlotte's employee. Charlotte is also working out some questions surrounding her boyfri [...]

    20. I am one of the First Reads lucky winners! I have received a free copy of Clobbered by Camembert It is #3 in the Cheese Shop Mystery series. It's entertaining and a light read like the other books in the cupcake/bed&breakfast/quilting genre. Most of the characters are fairly typical of the expected residents of the murder mystery small-town. I have two small quibbles so far. My husband says I am nit picking but (page 25) the cheese shop in the book, Fromagerie Bessette, sells among the vario [...]

    21. I am loving this series! And it all started with winning a print copy of the first book in The Cheese Shop Mysteries by Avery Aames in an online contest last year. Charlotte Bessette is part-owner/operator Fromagerie Bessette in Providence, Ohio. She is fiercely loyal to family and friends, while sometimes being more forgiving of people that is strictly healthy or safe. (I sometimes feel like an older sister to Charlotte and want to "give her a good talking to" about some of the choices she make [...]

    22. Charlotte is getting ready to showcase her cheese selections and accomaniments at the town's annutal winter faire when an old friend of her mother's wanders in, bringing up all Charlotte's old memories of the death of her parents when she was very young. Kathryn Clydesdale is in town to establish a bee farm--and maybe a dynasty. Charlotte never gets a chance to ask Kathryn much, though, because the older woman is found murdered. Suspicion falls on Ipo, the boyfriend of Charlotte's assistant, Reb [...]

    23. Clobbered by Camembert is the third book in The Cheese Shop series by Avery Aames.It's always enjoyable to take a trip to Holmes County, OH and visit with Charlotte Bessette at the Fromagerie Bessette, and this book is no exception.Charlotte and her cousin, Matthew are putting the final touches to tent they have for the Winter Wonderland faire that is about ready to begin. Matthew causally mentions that Charlotte ex-fiancee is back in town. She doesn't want to believe that, as she has gotten ove [...]

    24. Whew! Charlotte Bissette what have you gotten into now? Sounds like something Sheriff Urso would say throughout this entire mystery! Twists and turns galore keep you engaged in the "who dun it" behind developer Kaitlyn Clydesdale's death. Rebecca's boyfriend is the prime suspect, but Charlotte of course won't let him hang for it.Another excellent story that moves at a quick clip around Providence, Ohio during the Winter Wonderland Faire. Not only is there a murder to be solved, but Charlotte's e [...]

    25. I finished this last night, and I think I done with the series-- I can't decide if I want to read another. I feel like the "marriage cliffhanger" was a cheap ploy. I HATE LOVE TRIANGLES IN COZIES. They are ridiculous, overdone, and an insult to the readers intelligence. -love "triangle" that I knew was coming from book one. -Jordan is an awful character and his WITNESS storyline is stupid. -His sister is also a dumb character. We know of her, but there's very little "screen time" of her. Why hav [...]

    26. This is the third book in the Cheese Shop cozy mystery series and is set in the winter. Things are hectic, as they are splitting their time between the shop and their tent at the winter fair.

She looks forward to learning mor [...]

    28. This is the third book in The Cheese Shop series and I do wonder what other mysteries Charlotte has encountered. And I'll admit that I was lost with the sudden mass of characters. All of which apparently don'tneed to be introduced except for a newbie in this series like me. But soon enough, things started getting clearer in my head, and I'm good to go along with the story.I think CLOBBERED BY CAMEMBERT is a good mystery, I actually didn't really guess right who the murderer is, not until the sam [...]
