I love the Goldy Bear series of books. Goldy, the main character is not perfect. A little over weight, a bad marriage behind her, an absent minded mother at times. Some how in her catering business, she seems to always stumble into crime.
Although the mystery in this book seems quite implausible, in particular the method of murder, watching Goldy solve the crime is part of the fun of the book. However the best part of the book is the description of food, and the tantalizing recipes scattered through out the book. I really am going to have to cook one of these dishes sometime soon.
The main storyline involves the death of Goldy's new boyfriend Phillip Miller. His death is called an accident, but Goldy doesn't believe that. Temporarily relocated to a wealthy part of town, and living as an in house cook to a rather eccentric family, Goldy determines to find out who killed Phillip. The only problem is, her real life such as catering parties and dealing with a pre-teen son keep intruding on her crime solving plans.
Entertaining, funny and easy to read, this is a good addition to the series.

Fun and easy read with the bonus of having some new recipes to try out! Always surprised by who is the culprit at the end these books.

I enjoyed Davidson's first culinary mystery, but this one left a bad taste in my mouth. The method of murder was just too implausable to be believed. Also, Davidson is really stretching it trying to make us believe a caterer in a small Colorado town happens to bump into so many people with scandalous pasts, murderous intentions and access to various poisons. Arch and Tom Schultz both annoy me. I don't know what Goldy sees in Tom, and Arch needs a smack across the mouth! Someone needs to shake Goldy, come to think of it, for letting her son get away with so much!
Too bad. I really wanted to like this series, but I'm not inspired to read any more Davidson novels.

My first attempt at the Goldy Bear culinary series, and I enjoyed it much more than I expected. Fast moving, with interesting twists and a eclectic assortment of characters. I'll definately go on and try others in this series.

"Dying for Chocolate," one of Diane Mott Davidson's earlier Goldy Bear Schulz culinary mysteries, will not disappoint her legions of fans. In this one, single-mom Goldy and her young son Arch are living on the third floor of the Rocky Mountain mansion of retired General Bo Farquhar, who is still fascinated with the bombs and weapons that dominated his career as a terrorism expert.
Goldy comes under suspicion---was her food that was responsible for the auto accident that killed her suitor, psychiatrist Philip Miller? She has been neglecting another suitor, detective Tom Schulz, but he comes to her aid and the two come closer together as they attempt to figure out what has happened and why.
Recommended light reading, will put a smile on your face!

M's Davidson scores again with another wonderful murder mystery / cookbook. Goldy has man problems her usual exhusband Jerk problems of behaving in a threatening manner _and_two men courting her at the same time. Goldy decides to become a live-in cook for a wealthy couple.
And of course, that's when all hell breaks loose.
Who wants the shrink dead? Why is the exhusband scting so much like a jerk? Why does Arch run away? And which man will she pick, Phillip or Tom? Who is Pierre? And does this book have the "Strawberry Super Pie" recipe?
I'll tell you "yes" to the last question (and it is_super_) but you have to read the book for the other answers. A great read and great recipes, I recommend this book highly.

I have enjoyed this series but I was quite dissapointed with this book. The title is attractive. The beginning of the book and the plot development is fine. But the further I got into the book, the more far-fetched the plot. The first half of the book was well written and the who-dunnit solution was unplausable. I felt like Davidson didn't know how to end her story and rushed it. But don't judge the whole series on this one book.
