Things go swiftly from bad to worse when the infamous building contractor, Gerald Eliot, is found strung up in the house of one of Goldy's best friends. Goldy is certain that her friend isn't a killer - even if he had every motive for murder. After all, how many others would have cheerfully strangled unethical Mr. Eliot, including Goldy?
Now Goldy readies for a society soireé tasting party against her archnemesis that could make or break her career. As she prepares Big Bucks Bread Pudding, André's Coq au Vin, and Jailbreak Potatoes, Goldy faces the shock of a second murder closer to home. Suddenly she must find the ingredients of a mystery that includes the dead contractor's unwholesome past, a food saboteur, and the theft of 3 historical cookbooks. What she comes up with is the perfect recipe for murder. And Goldy may be the next one on the menu!

I'm new to Diane Mott Davidson, and I am loving her books! I find them light, fun and refreshing. OTOH, I find Cherry Jones' narration extremely difficult and unnerving to listen to. Like fingernails over a blackboard. A true disappointment, I have to force myself to just get through the several hours left in Prime Cut. There are 3 more Mott Davidson Audiobooks narrated by Cherry Jones. I will not be wasting my money on the Jones' versions, and will buy print copies instead. The Barbara Rosenblat versions are professional, enjoyable, and very well done. Save your money or Audible credits for the Rosenblat narrations, and don't waste it on the Cherry Jones mangling of the Goldie tales. This audible book just sets my nerves on edge. A shame because Mott Davidson is an enjoyable & entertaining author who deserves better than this. Four stars to Diane Mott Davidson; 1 star for Jones.
