Publisher's Summary

Diane Mott Davidson, Queen of the Culinary Mystery, has once again constructed a clever recipe for murder and mystery. With The Last Suppers, she continues to whet her listeners' appetites both for good reading and good food.

Caterer Goldy Bear's wedding day becomes a nightmare when her groom, homicide detective Tom Schulz, calls her from a murder scene and then vanishes. Her only clue to his disappearance is a cryptic note dropped at the scene of the crime. Its biblical references lead her to search for a Judas among her friends in the church congregation.

Discovering intrigue in the most unlikely places, Goldy is so distraught that she's hearing voices in her head. Will she be a widow before she's a bride?

Barbara Rosenblat's lively narration is captivating. Whether listeners are listening to the unsavory details of the well-constructed murder plot, or learning the author's original recipes for delectable Monster Cinnamon Rolls and Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake, they won't want the book to end.

Good Read

I have just discovered Diane Mott Davidson and I find her books very entertaining. I also like the Narrator and followed her through the Nevada Barr series.

All suspense, no breaks

This book was hard to listen to because it felt like it was constant suspense, no breaks. The characters are selfish people gossiping about each other constantly to the point where I hated all of the characters because no one ever told the truth. Super annoying. I felt like I was tied up in knots trying to follow it because everything seemed SO IMPORTANT to the story. Turns out only a few clues even mattered anyway, and it felt like a let down at the end. I love this author but now I know why my library doesn't carry this one!

Implausible plot

While I liked the main characters from reading previous books in this series, I found this storyline ridiculous - with long, dull discussions on Episcopal doctrine that completely distracted from the mystery. I’ll give the next book in the series a try in the hope that it can redeem this series.

Repetitive and ill conceived

Look, I love this group of characters and this series, but this episode in the Goldie saga plays like the publisher was pushing Diane to knock one out quick and the editor never saw it. Fortunately it’s not very long. The premise of the rogue priest is a non starter and I got tired of hearing her call her fiancé by his full name over and over. But you have to love Goldie!!

Great characters and recipes.

Touching, twisting, turning, and tantalizing as the mysteries unravel with small town gossip that simmers as much as the cooking through out the story! Barbra Rosenblat narration makes you feel wrapped in the world of Goldie Bear and participating not just listening.

Great to listen to in the car!

If you could sum up The Last Suppers in three words, what would they be?

Very good listen, really enjoyed the characters and story. Don't read expecting it to be realistic but fun.

Another favorite author thanks to my cousin

Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Suppers to be better than the print version?

I've become addicted to audio books.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Too many favorites to pick just one.

What about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance did you like?

For me, she is Goldy. Couldn't imagine anyone else reading these books.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

All the books hold my interest until the very end.

Didn't Grab Me

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I have read a few in this series and so far this one didn't grab my interest as much as the others. As a lapsed Anglican I found her setting intriguing--first time I ever read an American mystery that featured an Episcopalian church setting. Nevertheless, somehow the plot lacked something for me. Also, in general I found the narrator hard to get used to. The main character is apparently in her thirties, but the voice of the narrator seems more mature. Having said that, I have gotten used to her voice and I realize that its very maturity lends it to creativity as well.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I will just say that the lead up to the ending was what disappointed me, so the ending was a non starter.

Which character – as performed by Barbara Rosenblat – was your favorite?

I like them all. She has a very malleable, expressive voice.

Could you see The Last Suppers being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

As part of an over all series featuring these mysteries, yes. As to the casting, I have no idea who would be good in this series.

Any additional comments?

If you want a light read, I recommend this series of books. If you want something more substantial this is not the series for you.
