Colorado caterer Goldy Schulz pulls off a memorial luncheon despite having been hit from behind and her kitchen trashed the morning of same; a screaming match with her vicious ex at the same luncheon doesn't make it better. [...] Goldy never slows down, however: not a slew of sleazy secrets, most involving the nefarious ex; not approaching Colorado wildfires; not even her son's teen angst [...] keep her from cooking what needs to be served. Even for a Davidson, this plot is overstuffed by half and as crammed full of recipes as Goldy's walk-in freezer. GraceAnne DeCandido
