I tripped over the body of Dusty Routt sometime after 10 o’clock on the evening of October 19…

New York Times bestselling author Diane Mott Davidson cooks up a knockout treat featuring the irrepressible caterer Goldy Schulz.

Goldy Schulz has a lucrative new gig, preparing breakfasts and conference room snacks for a local law firm. It’s time-consuming, but Goldy is enjoying it—until the night she arrives to find Dusty, the firm’s paralegal, dead. The poor young woman also happens to be Goldy’s friend and neighbor, and Dusty’s grieving mother begs Goldy to find out who murdered her daughter.

Just because the police are on the case doesn’t mean Goldy can’t do a little snooping herself. While catering a party at the home of one of the firm’s lawyers, she overhears an incriminating conversation and ends up discovering a few clues in the kitchen. Before long, Goldy is knee deep in suspects, one of whom is incredibly dangerous and very liable to cook Goldy’s goose.

Listener Reviews

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Review by Megan | 1/29/2014

    " I love this series of mysteries. I only wish I had read them in order. If you haven't read them yet, start with the first one. They make me hungry though... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Review by Meredith Galman | 1/27/2014

    " Almost didn't buy this because her last book sucked so much. This one wasn't nearly as bad, but still wasn't that good. The main problems with this one is that Goldy has no plausible reason to be involved with the investigation, that she goes about it in such a haphazard way, and she leaves the vital clue lying around for a week, only to discover it just as the killer comes to polish her off. Then there's the fact that she and her husband Tom have multiple conversations where they tell each other things they should already know, and the strained dialog (like when Goldy asks a young woman if the murdered girl had had any "romantic liaisons"). I really enjoyed this series more when Goldy had real obstacles to overcome and her involvement with the murders was more immediate and personal. "

    " I like Goldy she makes me laugh and she makes me hungry. Davidson's books are always good. "

    " This was definitely not my favorite of this series. The main character spent half the book crying and whining rather than solving the mystery. Generally, as a series though, I still enjoy the books. "
