“Another winning entry in Davidson’s mouthwatering series.” (Publishers Weekly) --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Colorado caterer Goldy Schulz encounters bridezilla—and murder—in another delectable novel by the New York Times bestselling author of Sweet Revenge, Dark Tort, and Double Shot.

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 fiancé. 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—allegations that are confirmed when Jack himself is attacked.

So Goldy dons chef's whites and goes undercover at the spa. Add in the obstreperous owner, who years ago tried to sabotage Goldy's fledgling business, and she's got her hands full.

Above all, there seems to be a clever killer on the spa grounds, watching her every move. After what befell Jack, Goldy knows that she might be next. Catering weddings, and cooking low-fat food, could be killing her—literally.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Funny Satire of Brides You Love to Hate April 22 2009
By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Goldy Schulz agrees to cater the wrong wedding, the seemingly unlikely match of obnoxious, demanding Ms. Billie Attenborough to the much younger, Dr. Craig Miller. When Billie isn't changing the menu, the date, or the venue for the wedding, she's constantly calling or stalking Goldy for some nonsense purpose. In the process, Diane Mott Davidson draws a very funny picture of what brides can be like . . . at their very worst. This is the best aspect of the book.

Ms. Davidson's books often have unpleasant elements in them, including bad behavior, boorish manners, self-absorption to the point of harming others, over-indulgences, and stop-at-nothing mono-manias. In the earlier books in the series, there was an obligatory scene where Goldy was beaten up pretty badly. Fortunately, the violence is more muted toward Goldy in this book. But you'll meet a lot of very unpleasant characters. If you can laugh at them, you'll enjoy the book. If you feel like you are at the party, you won't enjoy the reading nearly as much.

As with the fourteen prior books in the series, there's murder afoot and no one will solve the crimes until Goldy sticks her fork in. As background, Goldy's godfather, Jack Carmichael, has unexpectedly moved across the street . . . much to the annoyance of his son who thinks Goldy is trying to get her hands on the family money. Jack's a "recovering" lawyer with lots of money and a yet to smoke, drink, and fish while claiming to be redoing his house. He's also casually dating Billie's mom . . . which helps set up some interesting complications for Goldy's catering.

Jack really likes to hang out with his old buddy, Doc Finn, who shares a love for drinking and fishing. When Doc is killed, Jack starts acting very mysteriously. He won't confide in Goldy . . .
