If you already like Diane Mott Davidson, you will like this book, because it is a good example of her work. However, if you are just starting off on her books, I would not buy Killer Pancake. I think the character is a wimp and the plot was almost boring. I would recommend Joanne Fluke if you are looking for some culinary mysteries.

As "Killer Pancake" opens, Goldy is facing a difficult situation, catering to a group of cosmetic company representatives. Of course they are calorie conscious and want low-fat, low calorie fare, without all the buttery goodness of the recipes that have enabled Goldy to make a reputation for herself in the Colorado mountains.
Julian has become involved with a beautiful sales associate. When she is found dead, Goldy must deal with Julian's isolation and grief even as she delves into solving the crime. Davidson writes with warmth and understanding of Goldy's motherly love for Julian, and mothers of young adult children will find much to identify with in her characterization of their relationship.
Recommended ---you'll not be disappointed in this one!

One of the more common formulas in the "cozy mystery" genre is to have a strong female character running into murderous plots amongst her acquaintances/clients, while trying to run a business and live her life with a significant other who is a cop or detective.
This series with Goldy and her catering business uses this formula, but unfortunately (and I feel bad for saying this), not very well. The first half of this book was extremely bland. Character development seemed to be sacrificed for unnecessary details about recipes and Goldy's constant catering concerns. I knew more about how the food was packed and transported to the catering sites then about the murdered person and those who were possible suspects. Now, personally, I love to cook, and the recipes are a great idea, but I really was disappointed in the lackluster story development and dialogue between characters. There were some occasional good moments and plot twists, but not enough to give this mystery reader a reason to continue reading books in this series.
Who have I liked in this particular genre? Mary Daheim's Bed-and-Breakfast series and Dolores Johnson's Dry Cleaning series are both fun to read.

Ms. Motts had an interesting idea for a detective novel however she failed to research the topics in her book at all. For instance blue roses have been around for decades if not centuries. Her descriptions of characters are haphazard at best and non-existent at worst. If she wishes to continue a career as a writer I strongly suggest that she at least read a few books in her genre and take a few novel-writing courses. This could have been a charming story if the plots were not so muddled; she had stuck to one main plot and no more than two sub plots. The preponderance of sub plots scanty clues, sloppy introduction and description of action of the characters make this book scream amateur, leaving the reader to wish the bleach had spilled upon the only copy of the manuscript before a publisher could read it. I would urge anyone about to purchase this novel to reconsider and look into a cat who book instead.

Goldy is aggravating and I can now see why the jerk beat her with regularity. While he was at it he should have pounded some sense into Arch, who is growing up to be as stupid as his mother.

In this culinary mystery by Daine Mott Davidson, Goldy the caterer becomes involved in the deadly games of the cosmetics industry. This story has many twists and turns, and dead bodies falling out .... well...everywhere! All the recipes are lowfat, but they promise to be full of flavor. This was a fun mystery, and I look forward to trying out some of these! Main Corpse and Prime Cut are still my two favorite books by this author!
