This book is not what I was expecting. The cover, title, and short blurb hooked me immediately and the first page wasn't any different. The story begins with Juliet and her brother, Everett, in a yoga class. And it only gets better from there. Ready to make a change in her life, Juliet's looking to move back home and find a job that allows her to use her new college degree. The clever wit that oozes out of Juliet, along with the mystery/suspense elements, flashbacks, and romantic comedy, attached me to the story like you wouldn't believe. The cast of characters is like something out of a variety show--from baffling heroes to crazy moms to peculiar neighbors to mean co-workers to sweet siblings--they all kept me on my toes, eager to see what could possibly happen next. I love how connected Juliet is to her family and close friends and how they anchor her. Told in first person, the story really does engage a reader and draws you right into this wacky and amusing plot. I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent with these delightful characters and look forward to more by this debut author! Content: mild romance; mild violence *I received a copy through the publisher.

Fun and enjoyable week-end reading... Love and Fat-free Cheese By Chrissy Sharp Life is too short for imitations... Juliet Easton is at a crossroad in her life. She's seeking a job looking to put her statistical skills to good use and thanks to her big brother Everett she has a job interview. Juliet somehow manages to impress CEO Owen Denny with her passion for numbers and gets a job offer that brings her back to her hometown. But returning home has a few drawbacks and they all center around her sister Eva and Eva's fiance Will. Two years ago Will mysteriously disappeared while attempting to reveal a pharmaceutical cover-up. And her family is still living with the repercussions of his disappearance, especially Eva. Juliet comes to love her new job with the exception of Owen's girlfriend Lila, who seems to take an instant dislike to Jules. And she's determined to paint Juliet in the worst possible light whenever their together which unfortunately is whenever Lila feels like showing up at Daddy's company. But when Juliet is drawn into the mystery surrounding Will's disappearance life takes a dangerous turn that finds the entire Easton family potentially in danger for what they may or may not know about Will and his investigation. Where do you ask does fat-free cheese come into the equation? Eva has long believed Will would someday return to her. And to Eva real love is like cheese, if you've eaten (or experienced) the real thing you'll never be satisfied with the fat-free kind. And Juliet is about to experience Eva's logic for herself as she navigates life with its unique twists and turns. If you like unexpected plot twists, mysteries, and a dose of romance in a contemporary setting you'll want to pick up a copy of Love and Fat-free Cheese and get lost between the covers of a fun story for a few hours.

I absolutely LOVED this book! Mystery, love, suspense, and humor makes for one great read. The cover is adorable. With the title, I thought it might be another of the food mystery-type books, but it wasn't. In fact, I really liked the title and where it came from. I read the entire book to my husband while we drove and he really enjoyed it too. The only problem was that the proofreader/editor doesn't understand dialogue punctuation which made reading out loud a little difficult. That was disappointing, but the book was fabulous and I wouldn't let the typos keep you from reading it! I can't wait to read another book by this author.
