Double Shot - Goldy Schulz, Bk 12 Author:Diane Mott Davidson Caterer supreme Goldy Schulz has more on her plate than she can handle. Her ultra-charming, ultra-wealthy, and seriously psychopathic ex-husband, Dr. John Richard Korman (aka "the Jerk"), is free now that the governor of Colorado has commuted his prison sentence. And someone -- the Jerk, perhaps -- has taken great pains to sabotage Gol... more »dy's latest culinary endeavor, a post-funeral reception for a friend at a local lodge.
But even more than the anonymous threats, rumors, and violence that have lately been directed Goldy's way, it's her discovery of a fresh corpse that really spoils the stew -- a murder that could tear her family to pieces, a murder that virtually everyone believes Goldy committed.
True, she's been efficiently framed, but at least she's still breathing, which may not be the case for long, if she doesn't track down a killer who's cooked up a very nasty repast for Goldy and the people she loves.« less
WOW! Great mystery - engaged me in trying to solve it and sort through all the characters. I never suspected the ending. As a fan of the series, I kind of felt like there was a book missing. But it's been a while since I read the last one in the series, so maybe I have just forgotten some things. Overall, a great entry in the series and I have to applaud Ms. Davidson for her continued ability to thrill & interest!
This book is a cozy mystery that is not too scary to read at night.
Goldy doesn't discover the body until the storyline is in place.
These mysteries have little profanity and are a good read with
good recipes. While I haven't used any recipes from this book (yet),
I have from others.
Murder mystery with the charming Goldy Schultz, caterer extraordinare, in her twelfth book. Lots of twists and turns but not too graphic or gory. I liked this book, was new to this author's work, and will order up more of Diane Mott Davidson books right away.
Keeps you guessing all the way to the end, with a surprise ending - but it absolutely makes sense and is not a 'stretch' by any definition of the word. The second half of the book really is what convinced me - I will read more of Davidson's books in the future. Besides, there are some mighty tasty-sounding recipes included!
