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.

I really enjoyed this book, the first I'd read by Davidson. The heroine, Goldie, is a single mom struggling to deal with her own business, her abusive ex, her dead boyfriend,her son, her helper, and her unconventional living situation. But, like any stalwart heroine, she still finds time for chocolate. The plot of the mystery is interesting, but what really sets this book (and the series apart) is Davidson's skill in portraying complex characters, rather than entertaining clue chasers. Goldie is an actual person who when faced with a mystery, can't just drop everything and solve it. She, like all of us, has to deal with work and family first. Congratulations, Ms. Davidson, on writing a smart, funny, compelling series about real people!
Oh yeah, and about the cookies. Exactly how big a batch can you make of lethal layers before it becomes unmanageable? I'm only asking because making them every few days is getting tedious. The books in this series are the only mysteries I own with grease stains.

I think that overall, this story wasn't bad. It wasn't the most boring story or the most exciting either. It was in between. Although, there could've been more suspense to it. The story and the plot was a little slow too. It took awhile to get to the suspense because the writer, Diane Mott Davidson, seemed to take things kind of slow in the story. It was kind of dragging out a little. But, I liked how Davidson writes as if the story wasn't fiction. You feel as if the characters are real and they're just living a normal life like anyone else. They do everyday things in the story like, cook, eat, run errands, etc... I also liked the parts where Davidson wrote about Goldy Bear cooking and the recipes for what she cooked. That part was kind of fun to read about. Like what she was cooking seemed really cool. The foods she cooked wasn't just regular food you ate everyday. They sememd kind of fancy and elegant. I just thought it was creative. I guess near the end, there's a little more edge to it because the story is coming to a finish. The ending is a little shocking to find out what happens, but nothing big or too shocking. So overall, this story wasn't bad, but wasn't the best.

Dying for Chocolate is based in Evergreen Co. Most of the story takes place in a high class neiborhood in the middle of the summer. The main character is local caterer Goldy Bear. She has a curious investigative personality, for searching for the truth. The story begins with a gruesome murder. The victim was a close friend of Goldy's and one she cared for. Goldy is determined to find the killer. As the story unravels she gets pulled more and more into the case. She ends up doing some things that could her and her beloved son killed. This is a great suspense story, some of the parts I couldn't stop reading and put the book down. The reason I said "Some parts" was because the middle got really dull and I had to push myself to finish. This is also the reason I took 2 points of the rating. Otherwise I loved the book recomened this book to almost everybody. I have to say the thing I liked most was that Davidson's books are so real. All of her story events are things that could happen in real life.

Diane Mott Davidson has created a character that has more problems than anyone person should have to deal with. But she has Goldy or better know as "Miss Goldy" handling it all with a quality that makes you laugh along with her mishaps. The story starts when an old friend, that she's been dating, is killed in a car accident. Goldy is following him for a date to have coffee when he crases head on into a bus. What persues after the "accident" keeps you wanting more of Miss Goldy and her wacky friends, her son, and her crazed abusive ex-husband the "JERK" (of course these are the initials of his name, but some how very fitting), and the cop that she is seeing off and on but more off lately with the reappearance of Phillip in her life. Diane Mott Davidson keeps you entertained and intrigued at the same time. You'll enjoy this book immensely and want to read every book with her delightful and funny character, "Miss Goldy"
