Jamie Tomassetti is a web designer turned cheesemonger. She opened Spread Cheese Co. in downtown Middletown with her sister Lindsey in 2019. Their mission was and remains to share the flavors and stories of artisan cheese with their community. Jamie’s days always begin with a deep contemplation on “what’s for dinner?” She defines herself as a foodie and frequently experiments with curious pairings. When Jamie’s not behind the counter at Spread, she can be found burning off cheese-related calories on the Peloton or enjoying the simplicity of country living at her home in Hadlyme,CT.

Curds of Prey by Korina Moss

Murder again comes to Yarrow Glen, and cheesemonger Willa Bauer must be the predator… before she becomes the prey.

Yarrow Glen's favorite cheese shop, Curds & Whey, gets to be a part of the social event of the season: Summer Harrington’s wedding. Cheesemonger Willa Bauer is going all out for the wedding shower’s cheese bar. But the eagle-eyed Harrington family is proving to be a pain in her asiago. A last-minute tasting ends in disaster when one of Willa’s potential beaus, Roman, gets in a fight with the groom. Then the shower arrives, and while there’s anything but love in the air, there is plenty of cheese. Oh, and Roman... again. The day officially ends in disaster when Willa finds the groom—who also happens to be the mayor’s nephew—in the stable, dead as a dodo. At the mayor’s request, Willa must follow the trail of cheese curds to find a killer while continuing to walk a tightrope between two of Sonoma Valley’s most powerful families.
