Series #11. Fun series about a caterer who also solves mysteries in Colorado. The characters are enjoyable and believable (except for finding dead bodies all the time)and are interesting to follow their lives.
There are even recipes for you to try.
This was a good story. I worked in mall management once, so it was fun to read a story with that setting. Arch's attitude problem was starting to get annoying, Goldy needs to not be such a pushover! LOL! I definitely think this series has gotten better with each book.
This book is about a caterer Goldy Schulz who becomes embroiled in solving a murder. The setting is Colorado and there are recipes in the book which are used in the catering business of the heroine.
I've read all of this authors books and loved them all. I never can wait for the next one. She also includes some great recipes in the book - ones she talks about as she writes the book.
When Colorado caterer Goldy Schulz is hired by her old friend Barry Dean to provide a lavish buffet for the opening of his chic new Aspen Meadows mall, the last thing she expects to stumble over is Barry himself, stabbed to death with one of her very own carving knives. When the police arrest her assistant, Julian, for the murder, Goldy launches her own over-caffeinated investigation. There's enough espresso in this culinary cozy to keep the reader wide awake while Davidson's irrepressible heroine sets up the suspects, solves the mystery, sends up a Shopaholics Anonymous meeting, and dishes up 10 recipes for fabulous party food, including the Chopping Spree salad of the title. The plot's somewhat creaky and there's hardly any dramatic tension, but fans of this popular series won't mind a bit.
