For Colorado caterer Goldy Schulz, business isn't just booming - it's skyrocketing. But as her friend Marla is constantly warning her, "Success can kill you." Goldy knows she needs to slow down before she breaks down, and she vows she'll do it - right after her next booking: a cocktail party for the Westside Mall's Elite Shoppers Club. It's the event of the shopping season: the Princess Without a Pricetag party for the wealthy shopaholics who drop at least a thousand dollars a week at the mall. Goldy has been hired by charming mall manager Barry Dean to cater the jewel-encrusted affair. But she has hardly begun setting up when she finds herself in the path of a truck that has no intention of stopping until both she and Barry are crushed beneath it. Muddied, bruised, embarrassed, but determined to do her job, Goldy manages to get the party started on time with the help of her trusted assistants Julian Teller and Liz Fury.But. Hours later, Julian is the prime suspect in the murder.To prove Julian's innocence, Goldy must catch the real killer. But to do that, she will have to figure out why the victim was carrying a powerful narcotic. Between whipping up Sweethearts' Swedish Meatballs, Quiche Me Quick, and Diamond Lovers' Hot Crab Dip, and digging up clues, Goldy knows this is going to be one tough case to crack. And her gourmet sleuth's instinct tells her that the final course will be a real killer.

LOVE Goldie's catering stories!!! All fun & interesting. I have 3 all-time favorite series and this is #2 after Lord of the Rings!
The title- it took me a while to figure out what it was referring to! Funny!
Barbarba Rosenblatt is my favorite performer! I've heard her read many different genre and she's magnificent in all of them
Barbara Rosenblatt is my favorite narrator! To me, she is Goldy, and Marla and whoever else she portrays. I wish Diane Mott Davidson would publish another Goldy story soon. I can only recommend this series.
I have listened to all of the Goldy series and many of them twice. This is one of my favorite series ever. My husband has listened to them and it is one of his favorites also.
Anything Barbara Rosenblat does is worth trying. She is the best narrator I have ever heard-and I listen to a lot!! I will sometimes choose an unknown author just because she is narrating.
Don't miss this series!
I would and plan to read more of Diane Mott Davidson's books. I have thoroughly enjoyed most of what I've read. Barbara Rosenblat is a wonderful narrator. In this book she sounded sick.
If the narrator was sick, I would have preferred she waited before narrating again.
