Kind, sweet Goldie loves to investigate, but looks for the good in every situation. GODIVA OLIVIA DUBOIS, a wealthy Beverly Hills widow, writes the syndicated advice to the lovelorn column "Ask .G.O.D." (her initials).

He was one of the "4 Great Harry's of Magic." They still perform a magic act every Thursday at the Hollywood Home for Has-Beens with Waldo the Wonder Dog and love to dress in disguise and go undercover. #mysteryseries #mystery #humor

This is a hilarious romp, with well-developed, zany characters and great relation/ships... nicely paced, well-written, and a lot of fun! Thank you for the entertainment!

Goldie Silver and Godiva Olivia DuBois may be identical twins with the ability to communicate with one another telepathically, but that's where their similarity ends. Fashion-conscious Godiva, living in Beverly Hills, writes an advice column called Ask G.O.D. Free spirit Goldie lives in Juneau, Alaska, where she owns an antique store. Godiva takes Goldie's daughter Chili, a sous chef, to the taping of popular Chef Caesar Romano's show. Romano asks Godiva to sample the food and she passes out from food poisoning. Goldie flies in to help, and at the hospital, Romano confides that someone is sabotaging his show. Romano offers Chili a job as his assistant, and Goldie and Godiva put their heads together to try to figure out who's got it in for Romano. When his nemesis Biff Wellington is found with a knife in his back, Romano's the number one suspect and Godiva, romantically interested in Romano, is out to prove him innocent, along with the help of her sister Goldie and their mother and uncle, two former Vaudeville magicians. This fun mystery romp will keep the reader guessing while enjoying the antics of Goldie and Godiva, along with their quirky family. The characters are amusing and endearing, and even the dog Waldo has his humorous moments. The plot moves along crisply, offering plenty of red herrings, and is twisty enough to provide a good whodunit. A Corpse in the Soup, first of the Silver Sisters Mystery series written by sisters St. James and Bradner, is a refreshing addition to the mystery world.
