This is the first book I've read by this author and was pleasantly surprised to find a pretty good mystery and recipes as an added bonus!!
Book #4 in the series. Always a good read from this series. I love the cooking portions and since I have been to the area where she lives, I can imagine it. I enjoy the characters too.
Light mystery about a caterer who also does some detective work. Recipes are included, and provide a nice gimmick.
Caterer Goldy Bear's wedding would have been perfect except for two minor problems--the priest is killed shortly before the wedding and her fiance, homicide detective Tom Schulz, is kidnapped from the scene of the crime. Frustrated with waiting for updates from the police, Goldy attempts to find out who ruined her wedding. Is the killer the organist, recently fired by the priest? Or the disgruntled theology student snubbed by the ordination board? Sandwiched between the suspense and Goldy's 10 gourmet recipes are layerings of criticism directed at organized religion. The scandals of Goldy's church snowball as she pursues the killer. Battles over church funds, building projects, and hymnal music lead to suspicious miracle healing and cleric egocentricity as well as corruptness. And although Tom Schulz's character is never more than one-dimensional, Goldy's realistic thoughts and reactions to events make her an interesting personality--and turn this book into a substantive mystery.
A culinary mystery to die for.
Another great book by Donna! Now our favorite Colorado caterer has met the man of her dreams and it's the big wedding day! But wait! Just before she takes the big walk down the aisle, Goldie gets a call from her beloved, saying there's been a murder he must attend to: their minister. Before the murder is solved, our groom goes missing! Has Tom had cold feet?
another great goldie bear mystery, I love all her books and the recipes
This should be Colorado caterer Goldy's happiest day-her wedding day. But when her groom stumbles over a dying clergyman, everything must be put on ice, including the exquisite wedding cake. With recipes.
This is book 4 of a GREAT series!
Another great Goldy mystery, amusing with yummy recipes.
the caterer finally gets married - a nice cozy mystery with some tasty sounding recipes
Not as good as the others in the series, but still a nice, quick read.
A Blissful Bride (Goldy), a missing groom (Tom), a rendezvous with murder but whose and can Goldy decipher a note in time to save Tom's life so they can live happily ever after?
Great recipes in this book.
The best one of the series.
Another good book from Diane Mott Davidson. This was is heavy on the Episcopal Church as well as the food. I found myself wanting to race to the end.
Not my favorite in this series so far. The church rector is murdered and this book gets very preachy in parts discussing the religious side of things. About halfway through I thought "solve this already!" It just seemed to drag out. Hoping the next one is better. I enjoyed the first 3.
4th in the Goldy Bear series.
I really enjoy the Culinary Mysteries - this one included. They are not Oprah books, no doubt; but, they are entertaining, quick reads and I have really gotten to enjoy all the characters.
The Last Suppers is number 4 in the series featuring Miss Goldy, the caterer of Aspen Meadow, Colorado
Thisis the 4th book in the series.

excellent book in enjoyable series! I stumbled across this series here on paperbackswap.com it's really a fun & interesting series.
This was a very good mystery. I honestly had no idea of who the killer was until it was revealed in the book & then I was slightly surprised.
The mystery is good, and I've made about half of the recipes from this book and they are fantastic!
My copy of this book has no dust cover.
Diane Mott Davidson is one of my favorite women sleuths, plus she gives you some great recipes along the way.
