One of the things that always make these books come alive for me is the narrator of this series. Her voice holds just the right touch of sarcasm to make these stories such fun! If you are new to Goldie and her catering and her sluething do yourself a favor and order this book. If you are a current fan - this one will not disappoint! Enjoy!
DMD is cool. Her characters are easy to fall for. This book, as most of them, is easy to figure out. But, I enjoy DMD's books for those times when I don't want to think too much, but just want to visit with my fictional friends.
Most recent by Diane Mott Davidson-2007 paperback! And one of her best!!!Goldy Schultz caters breakfast to a local law firm and finds to her horror that her neighbor and friend, a paralegal for the law firm, has been killed! This is a great cozy mystery in which Goldy, as usual, has to help her husband Tom, who happens to be with the sheriff's department, solve this case!! I could not quit reading until I finished this one!!
Again Diane Mott Davidson hits it with a who dunit that keeps you involved.
Murder hits close to home this time.
I really enjoyed reading this and found I couldn't put it down. I read while I cooked. And I find myself hungry when I read her books.
Great recieps to follow at the end. You must try some of these.
This book was fun and a part of the Goldy Shulz collection. I read the first one Dying for Chocolate and this one. This has several other books in-between the Dying for Chocolate and Dark Tort but the characters are on-going with Goldy married again and things have happened to her ex and her family since the first book. This was suspenseful and a quick read with the recipes at the back instead of in each chapter like Dying for Chocolate. I think these are as fun as the Janet Evanovich series.
This is a typical Diane Mott Davidson culinary mystery. Goldy Shulz always finds herself involved in some crime or another and her sweet, thoughtful, loving husband (who happens to be a police officer in their town) is not always too keen on her involvement. Goldy cooks and bakes for her catering business as well as to relieve stress or anger when she has been threatened or incriminated. Readers will follow Goldy's roller coaster ride as she frantically tries to juggle her catering business while also solving the crime at hand and just when you thought that the fun was over, Davidson includes a little gift of Goldy's recipes at the very end of the book.
Another fun read from Diane Mott Davidson, if murder is your idea of fun. I love these books because they are fast moving and interesting without being too serious. thye are perfect for a relaxing weekend afternoon.
Humble Hardworking Goldy Shulz would never not help a neighbor to find her daughters killer, no matter how unstylish that neighbor might be. And we know how much appearances can count in Ritzy Aspen Meadow. Goldy is back once more dissing her ex, loving her dishy Tom (Is there a real Tom? I hope so! ) and raising her son and some time live in adoptee/apprentice to be responsible citizens. Boy we need more Goldies today. Read on!
Caterer Goldy Schulz's lucrative new gig, preparing breakfasts and conference room snacks for a local law firm, is time-consuming, but she's enjoying it . . . until the night she arrives to find Dusty, the firm's paralegal, dead. The deceased also happened to be Goldy's friend and neighbor, and now Dusty's grieving mother is begging Goldy to find out who murdered her daughter.
Just because the police are on the case doesn't mean Goldy can't do a little snooping herself. While catering a party at the home of one of the firm's lawyers, she just happens to overhear an incriminating conversation. She also discovers a few tasty clues in the kitchen. Before long, Goldy finds herself knee-deep in suspects. But one of them is incredibly dangerous . . . and very liable to cook Goldy's goose.
