Unfortunately, some of these books are better then others.

Elk Park School does everything it can to help their students enter the collegiate world. After one student prep breakfast, Goldie Bear, caterer extraordinaire, stumbles across the body of a student in the snow. This is not just any student, the is the class valedictorian, the one that everyone knows will be accepted to the college of his choice.

The rich are different and when it comes to getting a child into a top school, there are no longer any rules and what should be a happy time in their childs life is suddenly turned into an all out competition with no hold barred.

Goldie finds herself in the middle of the murder investigation, of course Tom Shultz is there too since he is trying to get closer to Goldie. But the investigation takes a personal turn when Arch is home alone and a rock comes flying through the front window and later someone blocks the chimney filling the house with smoke. And when that isnt enough to warn off nosey intruders, a second body is found.

Ill continue on with this series in hopes that they get better, but this one just couldnt hold my interest. Hopefully, they will spark up soon.

Goldy Bear, the premier caterer of Aspen Meadow, Is no stranger to violence - or sudden death. But it's the last thing she expects to encounter when she agrees to cater the first College Advisory Dinner for seniors and parents at the exclusive Elk Park Prep School. Sure, the competition among students is fierce, and some of the parents do act as if they'd kill to get their kid into a big-name college, but as Goldy ladles out sumptuous Early Decision Dumplings and sublime Ivy League Ice Cream Pie, the only deadly things she comes up against are snobbery and boredom...until she steps outside. There, yards from her van and half buried in the fresh Oct. snow. is the battered body of the school valedictorian, Keith Andrews, "Saint Andrew" his classmates dubbed him for his holier-than-thou attitude, but was that reason enough for murder? It's a question Goldy is determined to answer and not just becasue she found the corpse. Both her young son Arch and her eightteen-year-old live-in helper, Julian Teller, are students at the school.

another good book in this series. I had suspected the murderer from the start, but there were plenty of other characters along the way that tried to throw me off!

Davidson's books are not particularly literate, but they're amusing -- good for when you need a light distraction. Her books are full of simple characters who interact in stereotypical and not very complex ways, and the motives of her murderers are often difficult to believe. (For example, it won't give away too much to say that the murderer in The Cereal Murders carries out the killings in the highly unrealistic hope of boosting a certain prep school student's chances of getting into an elite college.) Notwithstanding their technical weaknesses, they're good for escape reading at the beach or before bed.

Another good book in the series about a prep school in Colorado, catering, and competition leading to injury and murder. Goldy, Arch, Julian, Tom Schultz, Marla, and "The Jerk" are involved. Suspenseful to the end with recipes as usual.

I am not usually such a big fan of "cozy" mysteries, but I really like Goldy and the other characters created by Davidson. I prefer these books on audiotape, as the usual readers, Cherry Jones and Mary Gross, really bring the characters to life. In the books, you get the recipes from Goldy's catering service.

This book is #3 in the series:
Thanks to her recent adventures in Dying for Chocolate, Goldy Bear, the premier caterer of Aspen Meadow, Colorado, is no stranger to violence--or sudden death. But when she agrees to cater the first College Advisory Dinner for Seniors and Parents at the exclusive Elk Park Preparatory School, the last thing she expects to find at the end of the evening is the battered body of the school valedictorian.
Who could have killed Keith Andrews, and why? Goldy's hungry for some answers--and not just because she found the corpse. Her young son, Arch, a student at Elk Park Prep, has become a target for some not-so-funny pranks, while her eighteen-year-old live-in helper, Julian, has become a prime suspect in the Andrews boy's murder.
As her investigation intensifies, Goldy's anxiety level rises faster than homemade doughnuts. . .as she turns up evidence that suggests that Keith knew more than enough to blow the lid off some very unscholarly secrets. And then, as her search rattles one skeleton too many, Goldy learns a crucial fact: a little knowledge about a killer can be a deadly thing.

If you like to cook or eat great food, you'll like this book. Diana Mott Davidson uses continuing characters, Goldy and her family and friends, to create books you don't want to put down. It takes place in Colorado, so you get the visual beauty and the mouthwatering food Goldy creates. She often includes her actual recipes--a bonus!

A Culinary Mystery. Davidson is called "A cross between Mary Higgins Clark and Betty Crocker." This includes original recipes for Sugar Plum Cake, Red 'n' White Cookies, and Nachos Schulz among others. Goldy Bear is the premier caterer of Aspen Meadow, Colorado.
