Review:

"In Davidson's enjoyable if overplotted 16th culinary novel of suspense (after Fatally Flaky), Colorado caterer Goldy Schulz hires longtime friend and chef Yolanda Garcia as her catering assistant, after a string of bad luck forced Yolanda and Yolanda's irascible great-aunt, Ferdinanda, out of their rental home. Yolanda has been making extra money cooking meals for Ernest McLeod, an ex-cop turned PI, who also let the pair live in his guest quarters. But when McLeod is murdered, Yolanda's connections to his various investigations — from a cheating spouse to an illegal puppy mill — create suspicion. Goldy insists that Yolanda, who's also afraid of an abusive ex-boyfriend, and Ferdinanda stay at the Schulzes' house so she and her sheriff's investigator husband, Tom, can keep an eye on them. Goldy must once again sift through Aspen Meadow's unending supply of dirty secrets and suspects while whipping up delicious meals. 6-city author tour. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Synopsis:

“A cross between Mary Higgins Clark and Betty Crocker.”

“The Julia Child of mystery writers.”
—Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph

No one cooks up a tastier stew of murder, mystery, and mayhem than New York Times bestselling author Diana Mott Davidson. Entertainment Weekly calls her “todays foremost practitioner of the culinary whodunit.” And now its Crunch Time, as Davidsons delightful series protagonist, caterer and amateur sleuth-extraordinaire Goldy Schulz, digs into a deadly smorgasbord that includes a heaping helping of murder, a double dose of arson…and nine adorable beagle puppies!

Goldy's at it again! When her friend Yolanda needs a place to stay and a crime solved, Goldy offers her house, along with her expert investigative services, in spite of husband Tom's watchful eye. I would have enjoyed more cooking and less detective work. Goldy's stepping on the police investigation stretches the limits at times. Other than Tom and the ever faithful Sgt. Boyd, favorite characters such as Arch and Marla are barely mentioned. Still, the plot is engaging and the excitement is non-stop. Fans will enjoy the plot twist in the Schulz marriage as well.
