"Today's foremost practitioner of the culinary whodunit." –Entertainment Weekly
Caterer and sleuth extraordinaire Goldy Schulz jumps from the frying pan into the fire as she tries to solve a puzzling murder that is much too close to home, in this latest entry in the New York Times bestselling culinary mystery series from Diane Mott Davidson.
Amateur sleuth and caterer extraordinaire Goldy Schulz has overcome her share of culinary disasters, not to mention a taste (or two) of death. But all that experience is little preparation when one of Goldy’s best friends collapses and dies at a birthdy party.
The autospsy reveals that the death wasn’t a heart attack as everyone presumed. It was something far more nefarious. Someone added a sprinkle of poison to the victim’s plate. Suddenly, suspicion falls on the caterer who provided the party’s food: Goldy herself!
Then another caterer—a woman who suspiciously resembles Goldy—is stabbed, and Goldy is attacked outside her own house. A devious killer is on the loose, and he wants to serve Goldy up on a platter. But the irrepressible sleuth
In bestseller Davidson's beguiling 17th mystery featuring Aspen Meadow, Colo., caterer Goldy Schulz (after 2011's Crunch Time), Goldy fears that the death of her friend Holly Ingleby immediately following a birthday party she catered was caused by something Holly ate. When Holly who was part of the unofficial group of emotionally and often physically battered wives that Goldy and mutual friend Marla Korman belonged to turns out to have died from a medication overdose, the caterer knows she owes it to Holly to investigate. Digging into her friend's past, particularly through the reams of notes Goldy took during long-ago sessions of the support group Amour Anonymous, she discovers unsettling secrets involving Holly and other prominent members of Aspen Meadow society. It becomes clear that whatever tidbits Holly took with her to the grave may have provided a motive for murder. Davidson, as usual, deftly weaves her mouthwatering recipes through the plot, which takes several emotional turns.
The Whole Enchilada
I've read them all and this is the best one yet! Diane don't ever stop giving us more of Goldie's escapades!
All about the food.
This book is all about the food. Food food and more food. The mystery is really repeated every few pages and then food. I really don't enjoy reading about one clue and then having to read it being repeated to different people. Is that a literary tool? If so I don't care for it.
Could not put the book down
One of the best books in this series!!!! I have read them all and I can't wait for her next book to be published. I love all the characters and I feel I know each and every one of them. Thank you so much for inviting me into Glodie's world!!!
