Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Diane Mott Davidson has cooked up yet another tantalizing feast of murder, mystery, and mayhem. Dubbed "Queen of the Culinary Mystery" by her fans, Ms. Davidson adroitly defends her crown with this delectable offering of suspense, spiced with a dash of romance and a pinch of humor.

Goldy Bear, Aspen Meadow's caterer extraordinaire, is catering a dinner at the exclusive Elk Park Preparatory School. At the end of the evening, a horrified Goldy discovers the school valedictorian's battered body heaped in the snow. When a series of disturbing pranks leads her to believe that her son might be the next victim, Goldy launches her investigation. Delving into the scandals permeating the halls of academia, she stumbles upon another grisly murder, and another.

Forces collide to make this book truly a gourmet experience. Barbara Rosenblat's full-bodied and witty reading, Ms. Mott's deliciously fast-paced plot, and her heroine's recipes for such enticing delights as Sugar Plum Cake and Sweetheart Sandwiches leave the reader satisfied, yet hoping for more.

    "Early Work from Author"

    This is the third in the Diane Mott Davidson series and not my favorite. The premise was a stretch, the characters confusing and unrealistic and the murderer wasn't fully developed. Had it been told from a different point of view, it could very easily have been classified as a young adult book as it was set in a prep school and focused quite a bit on the teenagers attending the school and the stress of getting into the “right” college…read Ivy League.

    The main character is Goldy the caterer, apparently a highly rated one in the Aspen, CO area, but I'm nit sure why. If anyone has ever had anything to do with a catered event, even just attending one, you would know the caterer does not wander off for extended periods, argue with the client, speak impertinently to the guests or have their 12 year old son and various teenagers as servers (who also ask impertinent questions).

    There are some inconsistencies that needed editing: in the beginning, the guests at a function are served both appetizers and desserts simultaneously and later, even though there’s a detail of cops outside her house, Goldy (the queen of bad decisions) jumps in her car and (not wanting to spoil the end here) gets herself into trouble.

    And if there have been two murders at your son's prep school, wouldn't you think the school would be shut down or have cops stationed there? At the very least, I would take my kid out until the murders have been solved. By the end of the book, I honestly didn't care who done it!

    "Snap Crackle Pop"

    This is the first book I have listened to from this author and I think I am hooked. I can't wait to get my next credits.

    "Disappointing"

    This is one of her early works and "Goldie" is very crabby, whiney and just unpleasant, to put it nicely. If she were really a caterer, she wouldn't have any clients...
