Goldy is at top form in this wonderful addition to the series. She must deal not only with a son in the beginning throes of a first time relationship with a girl but also a friend being possibly used by the girls older sister. The characters come out in force for or against our heroine in many ways, shapes and forms. A competitor who uses every means to discredit Goldy and can't compete on his own, finds an incredible allie in the most unlikely place. The recipes she uses to solve a murder or two are so mouthwatering you want to take each one and savor it as you do the story. Goldies relationship with her husband takes on more dimension and reality as he does what any husband would do for his wife in her time of trial, he builds something for her. His own problems are pushed aside as he takes it upon him self to help Goldies business. An added bonus is the return of a friend to help Goldie in her time of trouble.The fact that she knows the murder victims is part of the reason Goldie must solve this mystery. Her insights into human behavior as seen through her cooking make these books especially wonderful to read.

Unscrupulous caterer Craig Litchfield is trying to drive competitor Goldy's Catering out of business. However, Goldy is fortunate that at a time when solvency is at question, she has a paying customer. Goldy's spouse has been suspended without pay due to a dispute with the District Attorney. Additionally, Goldy's kitchen is a disaster after being trashed by an unethical contractor, George Eliot, who has fleeced other clients. However, her former mentor, Chef Andre Hibband, hires her to service a fashion shoot at the Merciful Migrations Cabin.

When George is found murdered, the DA feels he has an open and shut case. Goldy knows the prime suspect well and disagrees with the law enforcement officials. However, when Andre is found dead, an apparent heart attack victim, Goldy sees a link between the two deaths. What she does not know is that the words of the town's most infamous criminal (who has been dead for several decades) provides the answer to the puzzle, but anyone caught trying to decipher them becomes the next target of a killer.

Don't read this book on an empty stomach because the recipes are more delicious and fattening than the usual incredible fare that has made Diane Mott Davidson famous. PRIME CUT is a delighhtful Goldy culinary mystery that readers will enjoy immensely because of the refreshing, intricate, and absorbing story line. Sub-genre fans will relish Ms. Davidson's latest culinary delight.

I am a huge fan of Davidson's culinary mysteries. I waited very impatiently for the release of Prime Cut and wasn't disappointed. The characters are like old friends, and, of course, "the jerk" can't be left out. People like him never go away. What a delight that Julian is back! Goldy is a fun, believable character who displays a tremendous amount of strength. Her recipes are mouth-watering. Goldy's enthisiasm for food is contagious--makes me want to jump up and start cooking! Her books are best read with a cup of espresso on the side. I have been looking for her next adventure since October--can't wait! When will the next book be available, and what is the delicious title?

Prime Cut is a great addition to Diane Mott Davidson's series about Goldie the caterer in crime. I expect I'll be using some of the recipes in this book as I have from previous Goldie adventures, but what made this entry so delicious is the generous portion of husband Tom and former apprentice Julian in the mix. My only request of Ms. Davidson (besides many more books!) would be that she let Goldie be less intimidated by her not-so-pleasant son Archie and that he be less naive about his father's nastiness. When you start wanting to solve problems in the lives of book characters, you KNOW you've got a good'un!

Diane Mott Davidson's latest installment in her wonderful "Goldy the Caterer" series is a real winner. The story line is both charming and intriguing. She weaves a fine mystery around a wonderful array of characters including a welcome return of Goldy's protege, Julian Teller. If this weren't enough, the loving description of food preparation and included recipes made me torn between reading the next chapter and running to the kitchen to try Goldy & Julian's latest creations. I highly recommend this book, and the other seven volumes in the series, if you've missed them!

I have to admit, I enjoy the Goldy (Bear) Schulz character and especially like the recipes. Goldy is not facing off against a rival that has a backer with deep pockets. Her hubby gets suspended without pay, her kitchen, her source of livihood and sanity, is trashed. And than there are the murders.
Read the book to find out how Goldy gets out of this one and what new culinary dishes she has come up with - if you like a murder mystery and cooking, you'll love this book (as well as the others in the seiries).

"Prime Cut" is Diane Mott Davidson at the top of her form, and the recipes---although fattening and non-too healthy!---are scrumptious in this book. Goldy's grand-spanking-new kitchen is left in a mess by an unreliable contractor, so she is catering "on the road" and has a contract for lunches for a group of fashion models at a catalogue shoot.
This tale of murder in the Rockies, served up in great form by Davidson, will keep you turning pages till the end. Recommended.

I am a big fan of Diana Mott Davidson and this is a great addition to Goldie's schanigans!!! I could not put this book down. This collection of reciped made my mouth water! Davidson can always make me hungry.
Is Goldy ever going to get rid of her ex-husband? It seems she is always having to suffer from his wickedness. I recommend this book to anyone and the rest of her book also. The Grilling Season is also a good read!
