I think these are "fun mysteries". A little "whodidit" but not so serious or gory in detail. It's fun to figure out without having to squirm. And the bonus - the recipes are fun to read.

Interesting mystery. Had some humerous sides to it as well, also some delicious recipes!

You could die from reading one of Diane Mott Davidson's culinary mysteries: this one includes recipes for Jailbreak Potatoes (butter, whipping cream, freshly grated Parmesan cheese) and Labor Day Flourless Chocolate Cake with Berries, Melba Sauce, and White Chocolate Cream (butter, chocolate, eggs, sugar, whipping cream). So you might want to take both the recipes and Davidson's pinball machine-like plots in small bites. This time, caterer Goldy Schulz careens between the worlds of contracting and high fashion models, with bodies from both camps falling into the food. It's all in fun, and readers have been lapping up Davidson's merry mélanges with increasing appetite...

Goldy Bear is a caterer who solves mysteries, while we are treated to some of her best recipes.

The author wrote a series of culinary cozy mysteries featuring Goldy Bear Schultz. This is the eighth one written in 1998. The pattern is the same for all of them. There is food, recipes and those who make and serve it. The novels are easy reads. If you like them go for it. They are relaxing and entertaining.

In this tale Goldy is trying to keep her catering business alive as a competing caterer strives to drive her out of business. And, her ex husband wants revenge from his jail cell. With a broken window she hires a contractor who takes her money, ruins her kitchen and disappears. Later he is found dead in a good friend's home. Then her cooking teacher, Andre Hibbard, who is helping her cope with the catering from the outdated kitchen, dies of a heart attack. The question she has was that really the cause of her death?

As things worsen, Goldy realizes that she herself must do her own investigation to keep her business, save her current husband, Tom, and her life. As it all spins out of control she strives to keep her son, Arch, seeing her ex husband. However, he only takes their son for visitation when it interferes with Goldy's plans. Perhaps she is too accommodating because he is rude, disrespectful and dangerous. It's a quick comforting read

I like the idea that Goldy had to deal with some competition in the catering field and Tom suffered job tension. These conflicts added a different texture to this book's story line.
