Goldy Schulz is at it again in the latest book in the series. When her good friend Holly dies after leaving her son’s birthday party, Goldy discovers that there was a lot going on in Holly’s life that Goldy knew nothing about. Goldy and Holly met when they gave birth to their sons at the same time and discovered that they were both married to Doctors, and not the nicest men to boot. Over the years they had lost touch with each other but Goldy considered Holly one of her most important friends and is devastated by her death.
AS we would expect, Holly’s death is actually a murder and Goldy is determined to help her husband Tom solve the case. After she has a dangerous accident at Holly’s house, Goldy gets a 24/7 police escort in Officer Boyd. Goldy, her friend Marla, her fellow caterer Julian, and even Boyd becomes a mobile unit asking questions all over town and stirring up lots of trouble. Goldy finds out more about Holly than she would ever have wanted to know and many lives will be impacted by the information she uncovers. There are several side stories going on that have a relationship to the murder but also cause problems that aren’t related.
I really love Tom’s character and would have liked to see more of him in the book. However, his part in the story might be small in time but ultimately BIG in impact on Goldy’s future. I enjoy the fact that he has learned to just let Goldy loose when it comes to a murder because she will do what she wants with or without his permission. Tom does the best he can to protect her and Goldy does take precautions so Tom doesn’t have to worry as much. Long time readers will be happy to see the usual cast of characters we have come to know so well but new readers will find the book easy to follow without too much backstory. The ending will satisfy everyone and the recipes at the end of the book look really yummy!

This series is getting a little tired. The story was too long, and too much happens in the Epilog.

    Sort of disappointed

    The usual characters are there, but the story line is a bit cloudy. Just not up to Davidson's normal standard. Was it written in a hurry! Only makes sense if you've read the other books first.

    Well . . . . .

    A fairly good job, but the epilogue contained a whole lot more information than the rest of the book.

    Disappointed

    I have read a lot of ms Davidson's books and found them to be quite enjoyable. This one, not so much. The story went round and round from one suspect to the other and back again. As I remember, the murder was not solved until the epilogue. I've always loved her books and will not be turned off by one disappointment.

    Cost $8.99, 335 pages, different than Davidson's other books.

    I have read all of Diane Mott Davidison's books and this one was ......well, diffetent. If I did not know better, I would think it was written by another author. I paid $8.99 fot this nice, clean, cozy read. It has 335 page and is well edited. The recipes are at the end of the book instead of between the chapters, like they used to be. The mystery has more twists and turns then usual. Arch is now 17 years old and Julian is back. Marla has lost her edge and the snarky reporter was non existent. I miss the way the books were before. There is sexual insinuations, no cursing and the violence and murder are not very detailed. There are some very light religious references. The ending made me wonder if this is the last of Goldie and the gang. It felt as if Davidson had decided to wrap up the series with this book. If so may, they all live happily ever after. Chick lit, ages fourteen and up.

    Highly Recommended

    A fun read. Light murder mysteries with a cooking theme or backdrop. No gruesome murder details here. Lot of character details.
