Who Moved My Goat Cheese?

by Lynn Cahoon

Who Moved My Goat CheeseI am delighted to share a new cozy mystery series created by an established author, Lynn Cahoon. Who Moved My Goat Cheese? introduces Angie Turner, a chef who returns to her hometown in the Treasure Valley of Idaho after the death of her grandmother. She, along with fellow culinary expert and best friend Felicia, is opening a new restaurant, The County Seat.

Angie skillfully negotiates the ins and outs of starting a new enterprise in a small town where everyone knows everyone else’s business. Just as she begins to progress in lining up suppliers of fresh food at the local farmer’s market, one of the suppliers dies. As Angie is one of the last people to see him, she is considered a suspect. She has a soft spot for the elderly victim, however, and although she prefers cooking, she feels forced at least temporarily into the role of Nancy Drew.

Who Moved My Goat Cheese? is an interesting cozy with just the right amount of romantic interest, investigations, and excitement. The author obviously has a love of food and animals and while these are major elements throughout the book, they are not overemphasized. I’m looking forward to Cahoon’s next book in this series.

I would like to extend my thanks to netgalley.com and to Lyrical Underground (Kensington Press) for giving me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

Memorable Lines:

You developed bonds with the people you worked with in the trenches day in and day out. Those were the people you trusted.

Her day was planned. What could go wrong?

Instead of worrying about it, she went to her kitchen and did what she always did when the world didn’t make sense. She cooked.

  1. I spend time wondering where the farm was located. She did a good job of locating the central Idaho.

    I thought you would enjoy the setting. Do you know if Treasure Valley is a real place?

    Nice review! I like Lynn Cahoon’s Tourist Trap Mystery series. I’ll have to give this one a try.

      I have read a couple from that series and enjoyed them. The first one I read had some paranormal, which I avoid, but it seems that was particular to just that one book so I’m glad I gave that author another chance.

        I’m with you on that. I read the first book in the series, Guidebook to Murder, but I don’t remember it having any paranormal elements in it as I avoid books with ghosts, witches, and anything else resembling paranormal.
        I like Lee Wait’s Mainely Needlepoint series, but when I was reading one and it had tarot card reading in it I sent her a message asking if I could expect this in the series going forward. It seems she got other such messages about it and said she excluded it in the other books going forward.
        I really dislike that so many cozy authors are resorting to paranormal. It really cuts my choices of what I’d like to read in half.
