Journalist Alex Grant is enjoying the last days of her summer holiday in Croatia when she is accosted by an old school friend, Marie Puharich, and her odious brother, Brian, both there to attend the funeral of their fearsome grandfather's two loyal retainers. The only upside of the whole sorry business is meeting Marco, the family's resident adonis. An incorrigible foodie, Alex is unable to resist Brian's invitation to visit the family creamery in Australia's south-west to snoop around for stories and eat her body weight in brie. But trouble has a way of finding Alex, not least because her curiosity is the size of a giant gouda wheel. What begins as a country jaunt in search of a juicy story will end in death, disaster and the destruction of multiple pairs of shoes.


Sally Scott

Sally Scott wrote her first novel as an 11-year-old. It was a Famous Five pastiche and every word was precious. She kept writing cosies until an arts degree led to experimentation with short stories, none of them publishable, but joyous to write. Then 'adulting' happened and creative writing gave way to a career in academia, jobs as a weapons systems contractor and her own business development consultancy. Fromage is the first novel in the Alex Grant series. Sally is currently working on the second book, Oranges and Lemons.
