A caterer’s nightmare …

Caterer Goldy Schulz is convinced things couldn’t get worse. An unscrupulous rival is driving her out of business. An incompetent contractor has left her precious kitchen in shambles. And she has just agreed to cater a fashion shoot at a nineteenth-century mountain cabin with her mentor and old friend, French chef André Hibbard.

A dash of cold-blooded murder …

Together Goldy and André struggle in a hopelessly outdated kitchen to cater to a vacuous crowd of beautiful people whose personal dramas climax when a camera is pitched through a window … into the buffet. Then Goldy’s contractor is found hanging in the house of one of her best friends. A second murder follows and Goldy must somehow solve a mystery and prepare for a society soirée that could make—or break—her career.

A recipe for disaster …

It’s a mystery that involves the dead contractor’s unwholesome past, a food saboteur, the theft of four historical cookbooks, and an overzealous DA who has suspended Goldy’s detective husband, Tom, from the force. What Goldy discovers is the perfect recipe for murder. And she may be dessert!

Listener Opinions

    " I just love the way Goldie cooks and solves crimes that happen in her community. Thanks. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharonbrown3158 | 2/13/2014

    " This is a series I love and collect. I love a mystery and the detective is a caterer! I love to cook and even though they rarely turn out I always try a recipe from each book. This time it was the spinach cheesecakes-oddly, not as good as it sounds. But the story was fun and I love all the characters-especially Marla! She reminds me of my sister. She is filthy rich and loves all the finer things in life and she is funny and flamboyant and "just says things"!~ "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie Reeder | 2/12/2014

    " As always with Diane Mott Davidson, it is an enjoyable quick read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 2/9/2014

    " This again features Goldie the caterer. It deals with the modeling industry and a historical farm. Fun, but not as good as Tough Cookie. I figured this one out much sooner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janyne | 1/27/2014

    " Good book. Met expectations. Even after setting aside the series for a long time, I was able to remember the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carmen | 1/22/2014

    " In this part of the series, we learn how Goldy gets a new kitchen and how her ex husband tried to get her into trouble while he was in prison. Marla, her friend, does not appear too much in this one, but Julian does. It is full of adventure and mystery, like all the others. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joann Williams | 1/17/2014

    " Not one of her best. It seemed to drag along with less going on than usual. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy bill | 1/17/2014

    " This is the 8th book in the Goldie Bear series. I guess I read this one out of order. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea Kelly | 1/4/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erjanoco | 12/28/2013

    " A typical Mott Davidson Goldie Schulz book but enjoyable because I like the usual characters and the catering aspects, plus her humor while solving the latest crime. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 12/25/2013

    " I've read quite a few of these mysteries. This one is similar in that Goldy caters an event but also solves a "who-dun-it" death. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheila | 12/21/2013

    " By now you know if Goldy is catering your event that SOMEONE will die. In this one more that 1 dies. There is buried treasure, code breaking, catering competition, the jerk reaching out from jail. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 dee | 12/19/2013

    " I think I gain five pounds every time I read one of her books. Nice light mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 12/9/2013

    " ah, good little foodie mysteries. I like them all. in this one, she is catering while on a fashion shoot and her husband is on unpaid leave so he decides to remodel her kitchen. Which for a caterer is kind of a difficult renovation to work through. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicky Beltz | 12/9/2013

    " Great cozy mystery with humor and recipes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joyce | 11/24/2013

    " Davidson again made this a page-turner almost to the end. Really enjoy this type of reading (although it keeps me up at night trying to finish the book). If you haven't read any of her books, you need to. They are awesome! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Toni | 9/13/2013

    " Picked this up at a library book sale because we'd been given one of her other books and it was a fun, light read. But I've been trying to get interested in this for a month and can't get past page 15. I think one book from this author is quite enough for a lifetime. Back to the library it goes! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 9/5/2013

    " Davidson's culinary mysteries are my standby for easy, light audiobooks. They're entertaining if not the slightest bit literary. Plus, they take place in Colorado and will make you hungry! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colleen | 9/2/2013

    " 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! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 7/12/2013

    " The kitchen is a mess, and Goldy is about to lose it. One more in the series--not bad. Just remember not to read too many together or the plotlines begin to run together! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marissa | 6/5/2013

    " Goldy has a competitor who is using illegal practices to take over the business in town, so she happily agrees to assist her mentor in catering a nearby photo shoot. Weird things begin to happen on site, and then murder.... Fun read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 4/19/2013

    " Not my favorite of hers. Too much going on in too many areas. Too many dead people!! "
