Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Diane Mott Davidson changed the mystery novel forever with her culinary crime series. Filled with heart-stopping suspense, garnished with mouth-watering gourmet dishes, and sprinkled with wry humor, these delicious cases have captivated readers from coast to coast.

In Dying for Chocolate, intrepid caterer Goldy Bear has moved to the posh Aspen Meadows Country Club, where her tasty concoctions are a hit with the wealthy residents. But when her boyfriend, a local analyst, perishes in a car accident, Goldy suspects that his death has all the ingredients of a homicide.

If you have an appetite for murder as the main course, you will relish every word of Goldy's perilous adventure. Veteran narrator Barbara Rosenblat brilliantly conveys all the intelligence, wit, and energy of this irrepressible mistress of menus.

    "Fun"

    The Goldy Mysteries aren't meant to be serious literature or even, I think, all that logical - they're a silly way to make it through vacuuming the living room or backwashing the pool. I know Barbara Rosenblatt is a popular narrator, but her mouth noises gross me out. The listen would have been more enjoyable if the sound engineer had dealt with all that juicy smacking, popping and wheezing. Yuck.

    "Fantastic narrator saves this story."

    Barbara Rosenblat is FANTASTIC. Yes, I'm using caps because she deserves them. The book was only okay for me. It had some good parts mostly to do with Goldy emotionally hitting rock bottom in her on-going divorce, but I did not like Goldy as a character. In the book, she came across as too stupid to live. But, when Barbara read the book she made me believe in Goldy. Instead of being a failed detective wanna-be, she came across as a real woman with all of her pain and confusion and imperfections.

    Story
    "Dang, I listened to the whining way too long."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I can't imagine anyone liking this book. Her over use of adjectives and dramatic scenes is enough to choke you.


    What was most disappointing about Diane Mott Davidson’s story?

    It could have been a cute story, but she drones on and on for each scene.

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "A bit better than the first"

    While this one was a bit better than the first i still couldn't really care for the characters. The plot is good and a nice twist at the end. Just.......

    "fun mystery that made me hungry!"

    I was unfamiliar with this series, but I enjoyed the audiobook. Barbara Rosenblat is a great narrator, although I had trouble visualizing how her voice matched the physical description of the character. This is, I'm sure, purely my own quirk, and should not be taken as a general criticism. It was a fun mystery that certainly kept up the suspense.

    I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.

    "Good Listen.....Surprise Ending"

    I'm more of a paranormal romance type reader myself, but I enjoyed this book and the story as it unfolded. It kept my interest, and kept me guessing as to who the murderer was right up to the end. The only thing I didn't like was the looooong pauses between chapters. I often found myself checking my MP3 player to see if it had shut off by itself after the chapter ended........
