Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

For Colorado's Goldy B. Schulz (last seen in The Last Suppers), the catering proves far less rewarding than the sleuthing when she's called on to prepare a banquet for the Mignon cosmetics company. Forced to forsake mayonnaise and butter in this low-fat luncheon, Goldy is in "caterers' hell." But that's a better place than where Mignon super-saleswoman Claire Satterfield ends up?which is dead. According to Julian Teller, Goldy's catering assistant, Claire had recently suspected she was being followed. Adding to the mystery is a local reporter who has taken to using Mignon's ultra-expensive potions while trying, none too subtly, to extract information Goldy might have gathered from her husband, homicide detective Tom Schulz. When Goldy's initial inquiries earn her an anonymous warning to clear off, she becomes more determined. As always, Davidson includes recipes as she brings events to a proper boil in this latest lively and satisfying outing for Goldy, who not only solves the mystery but also finds, much to her delight, that coffee can save your life. Mystery Guild selection; author tour.

From Library Journal

Caterer Goldy Schulz returns with another food-related adventure and more delectable recipes. Careful planning for a cosmetics firm's lowfat luncheon fails to prepare Goldy for the sudden death of a gorgeous sales associate who was caught in the midst of an animal-rights demonstration. A good read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Watch the Food channel instead Feb. 12 2003
By H. Male
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.

Am I the only food professional who didn't know about these delicious mysteries? In Killer Pancake Mott Davidson's indomitable sleuth, Goldy the Caterer, takes on the cosmetic industry, the lunatic fringe of animal rights activism, and (once again) her menacing ex-husband. And she still has time to operate her demanding business on a daily basis! Actually, that's what I like best about Mott Davidson's mysteries. Goldy has to make time for business; she needs the money. This sleuth is always real. Her business, her family, her love life, and her friendships have ups and downs and ins and outs that seem awfully familiar. Specifically I enjoy the details of her catering business and have learned or been reminded of tons of information about food preparation, storage, and presentation. These books are a veritable archive of food lore. And the recipes--some of which I've tried--are great! I especially enjoyed the recipes from Killer Pancake because they were developed for low fat crowd. Try the Vanilla-Frosted Fudge Cookies. They're yummy. My biggest worry is that Goldy will run out of murders. I mean, Kay Scarpetta has D.C and V.I. Warshawski has Chicago--no end to violent crime there. But shouldn't little Aspen Meadows dry up pretty soon? I guess there's always Denver.

3.0 out of 5 stars Killer Pancake Sept. 30 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars cosmetic consultants and Aug. 25 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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!
