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.

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.

This was the first of the series I read. I enjoyed the mystery, but thought the book took a little too long to get where it was going; it would have been better as a shorter book. I also don't like it when a writer leads you through several (and I do mean several) twists and turns and then wraps it all up in a page of action and 5 pages of conversation among characters explaining everything. I'd give it a 6.5 or 7 out of 10.

(Also annoying is the recipes plunked down in the middle of a chapter instead of at the end, so it disrupts the reading process. I know this is the publisher's decision, not the writer, but it's distracting and a mistake.)

I've read just about all of her books and though they have pretty much the same things happen in all of them, I still find them enjoyable to read. I rarely figure out the mystery so that also keeps me going.
