Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol | 3/23/2017

    " These wonderful mystery audio books by Diane Mott Davidson and narrated by the FANTASTIC Barbara Rosenblat are beyond great! They have everything, mystery, humor, just love them!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anthony | 2/20/2014

    " A very edgy type plot even for the situations protagonist Goldy usually gets in. This time she endangers the life of her best friend, son, and threatens to destroy her husbands career. It was suspenseful to the end with several twists and time-running-out scenarios. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 2/1/2014

    " Goldy's best friend Marla, the "co ex wife" of her first husband, is accused of murder. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 ♆ BookAddict ~ La Crimson Femme | 1/31/2014

    " This title reminds me of the movie ~ The Cook, The Thief, His wife and her lover. Only because a person is cooked and people are forced to eat him. (It's an ultra-violent movie.) The book isn't violent. Instead, it's about a scam. I'm convinced Goldy has terrible judgement. Her clients always seem to have troubles. Not only are the clients crooks or drama queens, her friends are questionable too. How many people who are her "friends" have now been involved in some kind of murder? Ugh, I didn't like this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 1/24/2014

    " This one had some good twists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 1/23/2014

    " The first book in the series that I read, this one sent me searching for the rest! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa Eljamal | 1/17/2014

    " Mediocre writing but liked the recipes! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 1/14/2014

    " I like all the books in this series...about a cater named Goldy...who lives in Colorado. It is fun because you get to attend all sorts of high end parties and get the recipes which are printed in the book, as well as enjoy a suspense and funny mystery! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann Amadori | 1/7/2014

    " Fun read - I wish I was as brave as Goldie but I sure would not want to get into the trouble she does! I love the food theme and the recipes. They inspire me to cook. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamilah | 1/3/2014

    " I love all the caterer-sleuth series! This series is my favorite though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 12/22/2013

    " I love this book...it is so good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Judy | 12/1/2013

    " Don't you hate it when you unintentionally pick up a book that you've already read, but you can't exactly remember how it goes? Yeah. It wasn't that great to start with, and the second time around some of the plot constructs are just plain ridiculous. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine | 11/22/2013

    " This is an easy reading mystery. Although some parts of the plot are implausible, it is still fun to read. The heroine is a caterer, and mixed into the story are recipes of various items she creates. It is the kind of book I read when I just want something amusing and not too deep. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tracy | 9/10/2013

    " It took me 200 pages to finally get interested in this book. I've had enough of this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 9/7/2013

    " Quick, fun read. This series of books never fails to make me hungry -- I'm particularly interested in trying the recipe for Chocoholic Cookies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheryl | 5/5/2013

    " I started out being quite bored with this and thought I would give it a 2 but it picked up and I quite enjoyed it in the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 4/1/2013

    " Another delicious romp through murder with Goldy the caterer. Love the recipes. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisha | 1/16/2013

    " This series of books isn't great, it's not too bad. But this one got just plain weird! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Islefaye | 7/25/2012

    " I think everybody needs a General Bo lol and we all underestimate the power of chocolate :D "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aldafan | 5/20/2012

    " I liked it although not as much as her others. I got kind of confused with the characters and there was really no mystery until halfway through the bok. But I still enjoy her stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joy | 9/1/2011

    " Loved this one. I know I had read it before as I remembered some of the story but totally did not expect the ending :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 8/29/2011

    " I enjoyed this continuation in the series. I learned about gold mines and blood hounds. I am amazed that Tom and Goldy's marriage is still going strong. She is always skirting the edge of legality and doing exactly what he told her not to do. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 8/19/2011

    " #6 in series. Goldy does it again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janet | 8/9/2011

    " In Goldy's latest adventure, Goldy must help her best friend Marla clear her name. Marla is accused of murder and stealing millions of dollars from a wealthy investment firm. It was another great addition to the series, with more tasty recipes! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 4/25/2011

    " I am reading all of Diane Mott Davidson's books and this is her sixth. It was definitely not my favorite but I really like the main character. She is a caterer and there are recipes included in the books which is fun. If you like cooking and mysteries I recommend this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joann | 12/29/2010

    " Some interesting recipes. Did not care for Goldie taking the law into her own hands to break her friend out of jail. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dee | 11/16/2010

    " This is a fantastic read. All the characters are loveable and realistic. There is no need to read these in order because each story gives background on previous stories. This is one of my favorites because of Jake and Arch. Their relationship is adorable! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Judy | 11/13/2010

    " Don't you hate it when you unintentionally pick up a book that you've already read, but you can't exactly remember how it goes? Yeah. It wasn't that great to start with, and the second time around some of the plot constructs are just plain ridiculous. "

    " Another cute cozy mystery from Diane Mott Davidson. Again Goldy gets herself into trouble, but again she manages to solve the crime and get out by the skin of her teeth. Good thing her cop husband is so easy going, and forgiving! "

    " Fun read - I wish I was as brave as Goldie but I sure would not want to get into the trouble she does! I love the food theme and the recipes. They inspire me to cook. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail | 5/24/2010

    " This mystery series is among my favorites for mindless reading! I'd rate it higher than a 3, but not a 4; there are better mysteries than this, but it is fun. I've never tried the recipes, but a couple were interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 5/7/2010
