An unscrupulous new rival has pushed Goldy's beloved catering business to the brink of collapse. An even more unscrupulous local contractor has left her precious kitchen in a shambles. Yet Goldy has joined forces with her old mentor, French chef André Hibbard, to cater a fashion photo shoot at a turn-of-the-century mountain cabin. There, in a hopelessly outdated kitchen, Goldy and André struggle to create warming Models' Mushroom Soup, Savory Florentine Cheesecakes, and a luscious spread for a vain and vacuous crowd of beautiful people whose personal dramas climax when a camera is pitched through a plateglass window...into the buffet.

Things go swiftly from bad to worse when the infamous building contractor, Gerald Eliot, is found strung up in the house of one of Goldy's best friends. Goldy is certain that her friend isn't a killer - even if he had every motive for murder. After all, how many others would have cheerfully strangled unethical Mr. Eliot, including Goldy?

Now Goldy readies for a society soireé tasting party against her archnemesis that could make or break her career. As she prepares Big Bucks Bread Pudding, André's Coq au Vin, and Jailbreak Potatoes, Goldy faces the shock of a second murder closer to home. Suddenly she must find the ingredients of a mystery that includes the dead contractor's unwholesome past, a food saboteur, and the theft of 3 historical cookbooks. What she comes up with is the perfect recipe for murder. And Goldy may be the next one on the menu! Download and start listening now!

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 2/1/2014

    " Diane Mott Davidson write culinary murder mysteries. She is a caterer that keeps finding herself in the middle of murder investigations. The books include DELICIOUS recipes of the food that she is serving at her catering events. They are light-reading books that capture your attention on the first page and have complicated twists and turns and unexpected surprises. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colleen | 2/1/2014

    " I also really enjoyed this book. I like the characters and how close knit they are with each other. I especially like the Julian character and how committed he is to the family. Of course the recipes make me very hungry! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joyce | 1/30/2014

    " I'm enjoying this series but have discovered that I'm hungry all the time while reading it. Could be there is not one page that doesn't describe food being cooked, eaten, displayed. :) I think it's some sort of subliminal message. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea Kelly | 11/13/2012

    " Engaging mysteries, and fun recipes! The only thing I don't like about these books are her relationship with her son, and the fact that characters who are considered "good friends" seem to appear and disappear at random! Otherwise I recommend them, they definitely suck you in. "
