The #CBBC book that I had to read was the fifth book in this series so I decided to start with book number one. It was okay but the grandma character was so funny. My mouth was watery all the time with all those delicious recipes and types of cheese 🧀 😋I‘m intrigued enough to know what is going to happen in the next book. 3 ⭐️

Y'all, I was so excited for this! Revenge, betrayal, story-telling, CHEESE!? All of these things I want!

I spent Chapter 1 hating the narrator, and by Chapter 2 also loathed the writing style. Bounced with minor regrets, pacified by making myself a cheese plate. Bail.

Definitely a niche book, this one looks at artisan cheeses made in the US. We learn a bit about the cheese and the cheesemakers with each one as well as drink/food pairings and comps. This book has good humor and I certainly enjoyed it. And so fitting to post this on National Cheese Day! 🧀🧀🧀🧀🧀🧀🧀🧀🧀🧀🧀🧀🧀🧀🧀🧀🧀

Ruthiella Perfect timing! 🧀👍 4mo

This vacation was largely inspired by the tagged romance (The Kindred Spirits Supper Club). This drink was 100% inspired by the same. I got a Pink Squirrel! 🍹🐿💖

Mollyanna Those look phenomenal! Yum. 4mo
squirrelbrain What on earth is a pink squirrel?! 4mo
monalyisha @squirrelbrain Clearly something you need! ? It‘s an ice cream cocktail with vanilla ice cream, clear Crème de Cacao, and Crème de Noyaux (which gives it its pink color & almond flavor). 4mo

This was such a great book! I loved the WI Dells setting and WI references, the cute romance between Sabrina and Ray, the supporting and loving family, the paranormal aspect and the mental health rep of anxiety. I‘ve read other books by Amy Reichert and enjoyed them, but this was my favorite by far. Makes me want to run out to a supper club!

My last push on "The Mirror of My Heart" (which makes it sound like a chore, which it isn't) fueled by ends of stinky cheese I need to eat before they develop a hive mind! ???

Cathythoughts 👌🏻 all good. I love olives. (edited) 5mo
Bookwomble @Graywacke @Cathythoughts The book is good 😊 And I love olives, too. I thought that with the cheese-hammering I was giving my arteries, the least I could do was dip my bread in olive oil rather than butter it! 😄 5mo

Who else loves books set in their home state? Wisconsin definitely has treasures only found here, or at least, that are better here than other parts of the county. 🍺 🧀 🍦

??? What I liked: Ray & Sabrina are adorable. Her ability to talk to ghosts, especially Molly. Loved Sabrina's Mom. How Sabrina and Ray get together - very cute. What I disliked: How Ray's parents were with him, especially in the end. As someone who suffers panic attacks, I appreciate the author having a character go through those, but it felt kind of flippant & not really addressed or more of a "quirk" of Sabrina's. Cute read, just not 5 ?'s.

I like the worlds that Reichert creates (I‘ve read every one of her books), but I‘m often disappointed in the character development and, ultimately, the plot. This one has an anxious MC who can see ghosts and works for her high school nemesis. A set up with potential. But the plot had too much going on and the interactions between the two love interests felt off.

I do recommend checking Reichert out for fun romance.

Usually, I get a little judgmental when a romance isn‘t super steamy. This is a big exception! Absolutely no judgment here for this wonderfully sweet (& sometimes sexy) story. And no judgment from ME is really an accomplishment! #Capricorn

This one‘s got it all: love, cheese, brandy old-fashioneds, ghosts, dogs, female friendship, a small mystery, & post-it notes aplenty.

Sabrina‘s an empathetic MC, struggling with anxiety & kind to a fault.👇🏻

monalyisha Ray, the love interest, is considerate & careful, he takes his time; he wears glasses & has disheveled locks & a penchant for cooking & bringing people together. He eschews Big City life for the quiet & peace of the Wisconsin River. He has hilarious taste in swimwear. 🦀 I loved Sabrina. I loved Ray. I loved Ray‘s blunt, gay, & fashionable sister, Lucy. I want to visit Wisconsin, & eat, & drink, & breathe fresh air. Simply put, I loved this story. (edited) 9mo
