Diane Mott Davidson’s New York Times best-selling novels are gourmet fare for mystery lovers. Recipes for such delicacies as "911 Chocolate Emergency Cookies" and "Damson-in-Distress Plum Tart" make Sticks & Scones especially delightful.
Catering Elizabethan fare to Aspen Meadow’s elite at an authentic castle brought from England is a dream come true for Goldy. But the day of the luncheon, Goldy is rudely awakened by a shotgun blast through her living room window. As the day goes on, she finds a murder victim floating in a stream on castle property, watches someone close to her get shot, and begins to see the ghost that haunts the castle. Instead of a welcome opportunity, this job has suddenly become a waking nightmare.
Award-winning narrator Barbara Rosenblat adds an exciting zest to Goldy’s misadventures. Listeners go wide-eyed and willingly into a mystery that builds suspense to the last moment.

The Goldie cooking mysteries is one of my all time favorite series. This book is another in the line of great reads (or listens)! Lots of twists and turns keeps the listener/reader guessing until the end. I highly recommend.
A delightful mystery. (that's not fair, I have so much more to say, LOL)
There were so many great scenes, but I really loved the last scene where Goldy is running from her assailant and ends up jumping in the moat, then slogging through the snow to find help. Great action!
No, but I must say this woman has a great deal of talent! Her accents were outstanding, her voices all different, I absolutely loved her voice and interpretations. I loved the accent she used for Suki (sp?), the wife of the castle owner.
When Tom and Goldy finally talked about the elephant in the room - Tom's old girlfriend.
This was my first Goldy Schultz mystery, and I really enjoyed it. I didn't care for the recipes, however, since they seemed very unhealthy and fattening! Made me want to go off my diet, which is bad for a diabetic, LOL. But it was fun cooking alongside Goldy, regardless. ;o)
