Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

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. Agent: Sandra Dijkstra, Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency. (Sept.)

From Booklist

Caterer and amateur sleuth Goldy Schulz has been feeding the population of Aspen Meadow for quite some time now, concocting luscious recipes for clients while solving crimes in her community. In this, her seventeenth culinary conundrum, an old friend is murdered, and Goldy, as usual, finds herself right in the middle of things. Fueled by ­information from her loose-lipped husband, who works with the county sheriff’s department, Goldy busies herself by poking around in her latefriend’s private life. With help from her feisty, outspoken buddy Marla, Goldy discovers secrets Holly had kept hidden for years, and somewhere between the enchilada suizas, the love-me-tender grilled steaks (recipes appended), and the seemingly endless cups of espresso, she, too, becomes a murderer’s target. The meddling, of course, eventually pays off: a thief goes to jail; a killer is caught; two young friends fall in love; and, best of all, a new character in Goldy’s household promises to add welcome spice to forthcoming culinary adventures. Goldy’s chatty approach to crime and cooking has many fans, and this will find a receptive audience among the Joanne Fluke crowd. --Stephanie Zvirin

This series was so great early on that even though I've been disappointed of late I gave it a try. The characters have only grown more predictable. The mystery was so contrived that the the attempt to make it interesting only served to make it convoluted and confusing. Very disappointed.

This was very unenjoyable. I find that this series has been diminishing in enjoyment as each new book came out and I now think the Goldy series has hit rock bottom. Every book is 'boiler plate' and the characters have become tedious and unlikeable. If I knew women like Goldy or Marla neither one of them would be in my circle of friends. And, with Goldy's reputation for getting into trouble, thumbing her nose at the law, or minding everyone else's business, not many people would hire her to cater an event for them. We won't even discuss whether a man like Tom would stay married to her. When I was less than halfway through this one I was skimming each page to see if I was missing anything (I wasn't) and I jumped to the end to see how it closed out and was relieved to be done with it. This series had great promise.............a promise that wasn't kept. If there is yet another Goldy story (there shouldn't be), I won't be reading it.

I was a huge fan of these books years ago and decided to try this latest one. I have to say it is so unenjoyable to read. Very confusing; nothing makes sense except that the characters keep repeating themselves without anything new to add to the story. I'm so sorry I paid full price for it. I think Diane Mott Davidson needs to rethink her characters and try something new.

At the beginning of this series, I felt empathy for Goldy and cheered her on, but as it progressed, and Goldy suffered physical assault without complaint, from multiple characters, including having her thumb broken in three places by her ex-husband, I felt that the author had lost touch with reality.

Her son's verbal abuse was wearying and the whole experience left me feeling tired.

Now, the author's political views run rampant through her books and characters with dissenting views are portrayed as a creepy knuckle-draggers. Thanks, but no thanks.

I have read all of these so far and this one is probably my last. I am so tired of "dear friends" of Goldy's that we've never heard of before dying after one of Goldy's parties. WHY does anyone still hire her? And why doesn't her husband get fired for all the harm she does to his investigations? I don't know that much about laws in CO but it does seem that he does things based on information that she either tells him or illegally obtains. How does that stand up in court?

I did NOT understand the point of the copy-cat caterer. The book would have been better, and less confusing, with that one less character (or saved as a better idea for another book). The incredibly lengthy explanation at the end of the book should have been a tip off to the editor that a second look was needed to weed some of the ridiculousness out. It was just so stupid and complicated for something that was slowly being rammed down our throats. Too many characters that brought nothing to the book and its silly plot, or the series itself. I stuck it out through the whole thing just to see how it was really going to end up but it was a waste of my time.

I feel cheated. I wish I could have my money back. This is one of my very favorite series & writers, and I hate to give a bad review. Either Ms. Davidson forgot how to write Goldy & the Gang, she no longer cares about the series, or sadly somebody else wrote this book. Whichever, this book was nothintg like the rest of the series. Sure, it had the same people and places. It didn't tell a story it was written like you were reading a list or an outline. The same things were repeated over and over. The dialog was nothing like in the other books. These people never talked like that in the other books. The dialog was like a group of people who didn't even know each other. This book had a mean hateful hard edge to it. I don't think I smiled once while reading this. I know not every book in a series can be good but I think this is the worst ever. Here's an idea for you; if you have never read the series, skip this book and start with the first book in the series read them all till you get to this one then stop don't waste you time ot money on this one. This is my opinion of the book I read if you don't agree thats fine I repect your opinion as you should respect mine; please no rude nasty remarks.

This is book 17 in the Goldy Schulz series by the author. It is as expected Goldy helping her husband the police detective solve murders. We find comfort in spending time with the characters we've become familiar with. It is an enjoyable easy read.

That being said, you have to forget reality when reading these mysteries. I do not believe any law enforcement organization would allow this much meddling in crime cases by spouses and their friends, or share the evidence as readily... even in small towns, and have the budgets to provide extended personal police protection for multiple people.

The biggest thing that bothers me about the series is that the author continues to physically harm the heroine in EVERY book. I won't do a spoiler alert more than saying this time Goldy is in a minor accident, severely injured, physically attacked, and shot. If you know the background story, she was abused by her now dead ex-husband that has some reference and emotional recovery in each book. Other reviewers have also said on prior releases, that a caterer with this many problems during her events would most likely not be still in business. I am also surprised that she continues driving at times when she is emotionally unstable and physically hurt and that the characters ride along with her because she is the lead.

I had a couple of minor issues in this book. (There was a whole discussion about she needed to unwind and insisted everyone take showers before her and how she fully expected to be taking a short frigid shower... then she was attacked doing something stupid when she is supposed to be careful and took a very long scalding shower afterward.
