Welcome to the website for
A Cheese Shop Mystery series,
the Agatha-award winning, nationally bestselling series, published by Penguin Books.

The protagonist, Charlotte Bessette, owns Fromagerie Bessette or, as the locals
like to call it, The Cheese Shop. The series is set in the quaint, fictional town of
Providence, Ohio. Charlotte is passionate about cheese and she's a fixer who
can't stand by and watch injustice occur. By the way, the books include recipes.
