Diane Mott Davidson and her series about Goldy the caterer and the mysteries she gets herself tangled up in are always fun to read.

I enjoyed the theme of this mystery much more than the first 4 books in the Goldy series. In addition to the catering, this one centers on spa products and cosmetics (with some animal cruelty activists) and questions whether or not women are any more pretty for using expensive beauty regimes and is product safety testing worth the cost to animals (and possibly some people?) -- good questions!!

And the recipes given in this episode are...LOW FAT! Haven't tried them yet, but there are some yummy looking ones like low-fat fettuccine alfredo, vanilla frosted fudge cookies and Grand Marnier cranberry muffins.

This is my favorite so far in this series.

Cosmetics, food, and murder, all in one book! This was a fun read. Some old characters (Frances the smoking, caffeine-drinking newspaper lady) and some new characters. Goldy really gets herself in some weird situations while Tom tries to keep her from investigating and getting into trouble. Can she catch the killer and cook lowfat at the same time? Read this to find out.

From Publishers Weekly

For Colorado's Goldy B. Schulz (last seen in The Last Suppers), the catering proves far less rewarding than the sleuthing when she's called on to prepare a banquet for the Mignon cosmetics company. Forced to forsake mayonnaise and butter in this low-fat luncheon, Goldy is in "caterers' hell." But that's a better place than where Mignon super-saleswoman Claire Satterfield ends up?which is dead. According to Julian Teller, Goldy's catering assistant, Claire had recently suspected she was being followed.......

Goldy and Julian cater a Mignon Cosmetics Low-Fat luncheon, battling low-fat recipes, demonstrators, and a fatal hit and run that claims the life of Julian's girlfriend. Then Goldy herself is attacked, and she realizes how cut-throat the world of cosmetics really is.

A good mystery, with accompanying recipes.

This book really missed the mark for me. The overall storyline seemed more disjointed then her past efforts and previously prominent characters barely made and appearance.

Goldy and her Goldilocks' catering company are hired to cater the luncheon for Mignon Cosmetics Company. Not a problem, until she finds out that her usual fare will not do, everything must be low cal and that is not Goldy's specialty. A dessert without butter and cream is not worth eating.

Nevertheless, a job is a job and she must come up with something, little does she know that finding the right recipes will be the least of her problems. Mignon has been accused of animal testing and as she is trying to delivery the food for the banquet she is confronted by an angry mob and as Goldy is trying to battle her way into the venue there is a squeal of tires and one of Mignon's leading sales women is murdered in the parking lot.

Turns out that there is quite a bit of corruption when it comes to beauty and once again, Goldy throws herself into the business of finding a murderer.

As I said, this book was a bit of a let down for me, would I continue the series, I really do not know. However, I do tend to give authors one more chance that tends to lead to two or three more chances when I have started out enjoying the beginning of a series.
