Diane Mott Davidson’s New York Times bestselling novels are gourmet fare for mystery lovers. Recipes for such delicacies as “911 Chocolate Emergency Cookies” and “Damson-in-Distress Plum Tart” make Sticks and Scones especially delightful.

Catering Elizabethan fare to Aspen Meadow’s elite at an authentic English castle is a dream come true for Goldy. But the day of the luncheon, Goldy is rudely awakened by a shotgun blast through her living room window. As the day goes on, she finds a murder victim floating in a stream on castle property, watches someone close to her get shot, and begins to see the ghost that haunts the castle. Instead of a welcome opportunity, this job has suddenly become a waking nightmare.

Award-winning narrator Barbara Rosenblat adds an exciting zest to Goldy’s misadventures, guiding listeners through a mystery that builds suspense to the last page.

    " I'm only reading these for the recipes. This volume was better than the last, as far as plot went. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea Kelly | 2/6/2014

    " 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. "

    " I read these books like I eat junk food. There's not that much to them, but on years when my New Year's resolution is to read 40 books, I can boost my numbers with a few of these. I also recommend listening to them as audio books on long car rides. "
