Publisher Comments:

Goldy Bear is the bright, opinionated, wildly inventive caterer whose personal life is a recipe for disaster, with bills taking a bite out of her budget and her abusive ex-husband making tasteless threats. Determined to take control, Goldy moves her business to the ritzy Aspen Meadow Country Club. Soon she’s preparing decadent dinners and posh society picnics—and enjoying the favors of Philip Miller, a handsome local shrink, and Tom Schulz, her more-than-friendly neighborhood cop. Until, that is, the dishy doctor drives his BMW into an oncoming bus. Convinced that Philip’s bizarre death was no accident, Goldy begins to sift through the dead doc’s unpalatable secrets. But this case is seasoned with unexpected danger and even more unexpected revelations—the kind that could get a caterer killed.

The Caterer

Meet Goldy Bear: a bright, opinionated, wildly inventive caterer whose  personal life has become a recipe for disaster.

The Dish

Now determined to take control of her life, Goldy  moves her business and her son to ritzy Aspen  Meadow Country Club, where she accepts a job as a  live-in cook. But just as she's beginning to think  she's got it made--catering decadent dinners and  posh society picnics and enjoying the favors of  Philip Miller, a handsome local shrink, and Tom Shulz,  her more-than-friendly neighborhood cop--the  dishy doctor inexplicably drives his  BMW into an oncoming bus.

The Unsavory  Killer
