This book is a good read as have been most of this series. Sometimes, however the main character, seems to be injured more seriously than the book reflects in her astounding "recoveries" bear out. Also the son of the main character wears thin on a reader's patience,with his self centeredness, especially if the reader is a person who raised children as a single parent with no support financially or emotionally as this character has done with her son. All in all I enjoyed each of this series that I purchased, for the most part and will probably purchase more The recipes are very interesting, even though in certain instances, some are a bit involved for one who does not have the professional equipment described in the preparations available. I suggest that if a reader buys books in this series, they look for the dates the original issues were published and try to commence reading them from the first one(s).

Although Diane Mott Davidson has served up another terrific read I have to say that I was slightly disappointed. In this particular book I found that it seemed that she is trying to hard to come up with an advanced plot but it only made the story confuse me with all of the intricate twists and turns. For my personal taste there were too many characters that could be suspects or that were important and I found myself flipping back just to remember who did what and how they were involved in the matter. These books are quite entertaining to read but they seem to have a few flaws one of which really bothers me and that is that they live in Aspen Meadow, a very small town compromised mostly of tourists and snotty country club folks. But in every book at the very least one person is killed, and if she continues like this by the time I get to the end of the series the whole town will have been killed off. Despite the fact that this is not my favorite book of hers there are many excellent pieces in it. I was getting tired of Goldy's ex-husband who seemed to deter her at every corner and in this book he is shot and I feel relieved that I don't have to read about his obnoxious behavior anymore. The ending of this book also sets Diane Mott Davidson up nicely for another book with new characters that are born at the end of this book.

I have read several of Diane Mott's books and I love them! The stories as well as the recipes. Double Shot was one of my favorites! I love the suspense and twists and turns! I think the book was beautifully written with wit, humor, and amazing intelligence that only an experienced writer has. I highly, highly recommend this book. I believe this is by far one of her best books!!!!

Once again Diane Mott Davidson ehthralls us with her witt, clever, twisting plot and culinary expertise. I always get the munchies while vicariously attening one of her catering affairs or when Goldie is cooking at home. A must read for gourmands and mystery lovers.

While I have enjoyed many other Diane Mott Davidson Mysteries, I found this book VERY difficult to keep reading because of its childish dialogue, far too many asides that make an attempt at humor and fail, and Goldy's portrayal as an unrealistically goofy yet successful woman with no 'take charge' ability of her life. Every paragragh is full of tidbits immaterial to the progress of the story and descriptions that fail to draw real pictures. I just put the book down a little more than halfway through and am utterly uninterested in finishing. A first for me with any book. Horribly written.

Great new idea to the series. The death of the ex will give Goldie more time to get into other things, which I am sure she will.
