First of all, the book is always better than the movie they make from it. Books go into a lot more detail. I am not going to give anything away. I love the Jurassic Park movies, all 3 of them. But this book has topped them! Scott Brick is a great reader too.

>Goldy Schulz knows her food is to die for, but she never expects one of her best friends to actually keel over when she's leaving a birthday party Goldy has catered. At first, everyone assumes that all the fun and excitement of the party, not to mention the rich fare, did her in. But what looks like a coronary turns out to be a generous serving of cold-blooded murder. And the clever culprit is just getting cooking. When a colleague - a woman who resembles Goldy - is stabbed, and Goldy is attacked outside her house, it becomes clear that the popular caterer is the main course on a killer menu.

Oh my goodness! Not to often that I get choked up by a story! I love all of the Goldy books but this one is the best I have listened to! This book actually had me wanting to cry at the end....and NOT in tears of sadness!

It's been a long, rainy summer for Goldy Schulz, who is engaged in planning wedding receptions for what seems to be all of Aspen Meadow. It's bad enough that Billie Attenborough, the bride from hell, wants to move the location to the Gold Gulch Spa just a scant two days before tying the knot to her doctor fiance. Then Doc Finn, best friend of Goldy's godfather Jack, is killed when his car tumbles into a ravine. But Jack thinks Doc was murdered because of research he was doing at the spa....

I DID NOT like the music that was at the beginning and end of every chapter. The music was not in the other stories, and I really hope it is not in the last two books. I think it would be different if music had been a part of the rest of the series. I loved the story! Goldy sure knows how to get into trouble! Love the stories and the characters....just not the music.

The recently married Alix Martin is obsessed with a recurring dream of her new husband's murder. Each time she can see the murderer clearly, and it's the mild-mannered man she had previously been engaged to, taking his revenge. But, what's worse is that at the end of the dream she thanks the murderer. Perplexed, Alix tries to calm herself by spending time in the garden of her picturesque cottage. But her gardener confuses her further by wishing her well on her trip to London - a trip which Alix knows nothing about. Now Alix is scared: Is the gardener imagining things, or is she?
