Book Description

“Today’s foremost practitioner of the culinary whodunit.”
Entertainment Weekly

“In the genre of culinary mystery writers, Davidson is a Julia Child among Betty Crockers, and there is no question that Double Shot is her best book.”
Denver Post

New York Times bestseller Diane Mott Davidson is the darling of cozy mystery readers and dedicated foodies the world over. Davidson is really cooking with Double Shot, another tantalizing puzzle featuring her beloved protagonist, accomplished caterer and sleuth Goldy Schulz. Whipping up a rich soufflé of murder and mischief, Davidson has Goldy in a stew once again, when the reemergence of her psychopathic ex-husband and a murder that follows soon after brings chaos into her world. And, as always, many delicious recipes from Goldy’s kitchen are featured as well.

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The divine diva of the culinary cozy returns with a crime novel thatwill have fans of Goldy Bear Schulz, caterer and caffeinated sleuth,cheering as they race for the nearest pastry shop. The 12th carb-ladeninstallment of Goldy's adventures (Chopping Spree, etc.) offersas its main course a toothsome corpse –du jour. [...] After Goldy arrives at her new cateringcenter to prepare for a memorial luncheon, she's attacked; when shecomes to, she discovers that her kitchen is full of spoiled food andoverrun with mice. She immediately suspects her longtime nemesisKorman, who's out of prison after serving less than a year foraggravated assault and living lavishly in Aspen Meadows with SandeeBlue, his "fifty-fourth conquest"—a young stripper, according tohis other ex, Marla, Goldy's entertaining sidekick. [...] Her latest noir-flavoredcozy may attract new readers to a sleuth who feverishly cooks throughany crisis and whose recipes are now gathered at the back of thebook. (Warning: do not read on an empty stomach!)

From Booklist

Colorado caterer Goldy Schulz pulls off a memorial luncheon despite having been hit from behind and her kitchen trashed the morning of same; a screaming match with her vicious ex at the same luncheon doesn't make it better. [...] Goldy never slows down, however: not a slew of sleazy secrets, most involving the nefarious ex; not approaching Colorado wildfires; not even her son's teen angst [...] keep her from cooking what needs to be served. Even for a Davidson, this plot is overstuffed by half and as crammed full of recipes as Goldy's walk-in freezer. GraceAnne DeCandido

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent closure and elements for future characters November 11, 2004
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Finally Goldy is free of the abuse from the Jerk, whose murder opens the Pandora's box of all that he was capable of, and, it's worse than you will ever expect. So Excellent Riddance. On the other hand, it looks like there will be new family and friendship relationships developing in and around the Schulz family and.. who knows what tomorrow might bring. I only hope that Marla's character does not fade from view now that the main reason of her gossipy life has gone.

Very promising and lovely, easy scrumptious recipes at the end don't interrupt the continuity of the story. Diane come back soon!

No other culinary mystery author compares to Mott Davidson. I especially share her passion for espresso in every form, and was NOT disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Physical Abuse from John Richard Korman Ends! November 19, 2004
If you are like me, the main drawback of this wonderful series about Goldy Schultz has been the repeated violence that she has suffered at the hands of her ex-husband, Dr. John Richard Korman. Well, unless he comes back as a ghost, that problem is at an end because JRK (also known as the Jerk by his ex-wives and ex-girl friends -- some 50+ in number) is killed in this outing of the delightful culinary series. That's the good news.

The bad news is that Goldy is physically assaulted and injured in the book's opening in a way that suggests that this annoying part of the series (Goldy as punching bag) will continue in future books. I hope not. I realize that many women are physically abused by friends, lovers and spouses . . . but making that a major theme of a culinary mystery just doesn't make sense to me. I graded the book down one star for this continuing theme of gratuitous violence towards women.

This book has much to recommend it. The clues point in many different directions which makes the mystery hard to solve until just the last few pages. I don't remember a better mystery in the series. The book also has a lot of good police procedural and legal defense procedural parts in it that make it more realistic than many other books in the series.

The development of the relationships among Goldy, Tom and Arch is particularly delightful in the book. There's also the usual fun with Marla as sidekick.

The recipes are particularly appealing with strawberry pie, enchilada pie, almond cookies, chocolate cake, brownie points and two kinds of breads among the delights to drool over . . . and to cook up for yourself. Obviously, Goldy is still immune from the Atkins and the South Beach diets.

So unless you are too busy baking for the upcoming holidays, give yourself a treat and enjoy sipping Double Shot!

5.0 out of 5 stars Who killed the Jerk and why? October 28, 2004
Goldy's ex-husband, Dr. John Richard Korman or the Jerk as she and Marla, his other ex-wife, refer to him, has just had his sentence commuted by the governor.

Goldy is attacked and The Roundhouse sabotaged. She wonders if this could be the work of the Jerk. She doesn't let it stop her. With the help of Marla, Goldy's son Arch, Julian and Liz, the lunch following the funeral of Dr. Albert Kerr goes off without a hitch. Well, unless you call the confrontation she has with the Jerk outside after the lunch a hitch. He wants Arch at his place at 4 for their golf tee time. Goldy scrambles and arrives at the Jerk's place with Arch on time. But there's no Jerk. There is a guy asking Goldy for his money. She begins to wonder what the Jerk has gotten himself into this time. Goldy and Arch bang on the door to find the Jerk. He still hasn't come to the door, even after the man asking for money left. So Goldy goes around to his garage. Unfortunately inside she finds the Jerk shot to death.

There are many reasons Goldy is a major suspect. Arch blames her for his death. What more could go wrong.

Goldy, with Marla's help, begins to look into who could have wanted the Jerk dead. Unfortunately he was not a well-liked man. Tom, Goldy's husband, helps her as well as tries to keep her safe throughout the process.

Can Goldy figure out why the Jerk was killed and by whom without causing her son any more grief? Plus can she stay safe and keep Arch safe?

This was a very good book. I always like reading books in this series. The food descriptions really add to the wonderful mystery and investigation in each of her books. This was no exception.

There are some wonderful sounding recipes in the back, as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in Series of 12, Does Not Disappoint October 20, 2004
This is a very cleverly written mystery, the 12th in its series, featuring Goldy Schultz, a Colorado caterer and amateur sleuth. Someone is trying to sabotage her catering business. Before an important event, her kitchen is overrun by spoiling food and scurrying mice. Goldy suspects her villainous ex-husband John Korman, who has just been paroled by the governor of Colorado. Before she has a chance to confirm her suspicions, he turns up dead, shot by Goldy's stolen gun. A great read for people who like food and zany characters and superlative writing. Others I would recommend include Joanne Fluke, who writes about Hannah Swensen and includes recipes, and Pamela Troutman, whose detective in Deadly Diamonds guzzles champagne while he solves mysteries.
