Gouda Friends

(Ponto Beach Reunion Book #2)

by Cathy Yardly

Rating: 5 out of 5.


Two high school BFFs reunite and endeavor to fix each other’s lives in this geeky romance from the author of Love, Comment, Subscribe.

Tam Doan dumped her boyfriend after he threw away her gourmet cheese. Sure, it’s a little more complicated than that, but the point is, he had it coming. Newly single and unemployed, Tam calls up her best friend from high school and utters the emergency code word—goldfish. Next thing she knows, she’s on a plane back home.

Josh O’Malley was a troubled, unconfident teenager. Now he’s the successful owner of a multimillion-dollar ghost kitchen. Tam, his high school BFF and fellow member of the Nerd Herd friend group, was instrumental in building his self-esteem. When she calls him out of the blue, he jumps at the chance to return the favor.

Josh and Tam immediately get to work fixing her life—but again, it’s complicated. Their close friendship was always a lifeline between them; a blooming romance might confuse things. Still, at least one thing is for certain: their chemistry is un-brie-lievable.


OMG! I have found a new obsession with foodie rom-coms… seriously this girl is my spirit animal! I absolutely adored Tam and her cheese obsessed self. Honestly .. I want the job she ends up with (will not tell you what to avoid spoilers)

After a rather rough start Tam escapes to her hometown and best friend Josh. Ok… let me tell you .. when he answered the phone and she said goldfish (once I figured out what that actually meant) I melted. How crazy sweet are they!

I loved this story so so much. The ups and downs Tam goes through while trying to pull her life back together are so relatable. We will all wish we had a “Josh” in our lives. This story will make you laugh so so much, and gasp a few times. Their is some steam and it is perfectly delicious!

I highly highly recommend! This was my first read by Cathy and can’t wait to read more!
