For Colorado caterer Goldy Schulz, business isn't just booming - it's skyrocketing. But as her friend Marla is constantly warning her, "success can kill you." Goldy knows she needs to slow down before she breaks down, and she vows she'll do it - right after her next booking: a cocktail party for the Westside Mall's Elite Shoppers Club. It's the event of the shopping season: the Princess Without a Pricetag party for the wealthy shopaholics who drop at least a thousand dollars a week at the mall. Goldy has been hired by charming mall manager Barry Dean to cater the jewel-encrusted affair. But she has hardly begun setting up when she finds herself in the path of a truck that has no intention of stopping until both she and Barry are crushed beneath it. Muddied, bruised, embarrassed, but determined to do her job, Goldy manages to get the party started on time with the help of her trusted assistants Julian Teller and Liz Fury. But with the outbreak of an ugly spat among the guests, the behavior of Barry's flighty young girlfriend, and Barry's own strange actions after the truck incident, the event is - by Goldy's standards - a catastrophe. And it's about to get worse. When she goes to pick up the check, she finds an old friend lying dead in a pile of sale shoes - stabbed with one of Goldy's new knives. Hours later, Julian is the prime suspect in the murder. To prove Julian's innocence, Goldy must catch the real killer. But to do that, she will have to figure out why the victim was carrying a powerful narcotic. And why was a private investigator called in shortly before the murder? Was the killer connected to a mall renovation project - or the eviction of a disgruntled tenant? Or was the villian the odd lover out in a violent love triangle? Between whipping up Sweethearts' Swedish Meatballs, Quiche Me Quick, and Diamond Lovers' Hot Crab Dip, and digging up clues, Goldy knows this is going to be one tough case to crack. And her gourmet sleuth's instinct tells her the final course will be a real killer. Download and start listening now!

    " This was a light fun mystery although I get a little tired of all the food descriptions. They all sound like they would add 100 pounds to your weight. They are kind of fun though. "

    " Ah, much better! I LOVE these Goldy books, they are so fun and easy to read! If you like mysteries and cooking you'll love them too! They are as addictive as the coffee and chocolate the lovable main character is constantly consuming! The only thing that bugs me is that she is always referring to herself as old and she is younger than me! "

    " I haven't read one of Diane Mott Davidson's Goldy the caterer books for a really long time. This is the eleventh in the series, formally called the Goldy Bear Culinary Mysteries. I'm glad I decided to return to the series. As usual, several recipes for dishes or desserts are included-that she uses to cater for clients in the course of the plot. I always find at least one recipe I want to try. Many of the characters I remember are still in play, and Goldy, as usual, needs to solve a murder that she inadvertently comes across. One of the most enjoyable parts about her writing is that she makes the food preparation process, an integral part of the story. You can imagine yourself in her kitchen as she prepares, mixes, bakes or creates whole menus for her clients. She manages to get herself in a variety of scrapes, and uses her brain, ingenuity and sheer willpower to get herself out of trouble and solve the case. A fun, relaxing read. I need to go back and catch up on the books I've missed and then get up to date in the series. Looking forward to trying the Strawberry-Rhubarb Cobbler recipe! "
