OK OK the recipes are better in some of the other books. And would Goldy really be have the ability to concentrate in a church committee review board while her fiance is missing? And unfortunately this is one of the shorter books....
BUT!! This is truly a gem to read from beginning to end. Being Episcopal myself, I can relate to some of the items that Goldy talks about with her church. Her reaction to a miracle performed at the church, not to mention a certain thing happening to her at a Women's Prayer Group (I won't spoil it), show that Goldy truly is not a one-dimensional character. I guess what really got me in the end was the true love that Goldy showed for Tom by not thinking he just ran off on her. Thank you Dian Davidson! Keep on cooking

This is the first book I've read by Diane Mott Davidson, and it won't be my last. I enjoy gourmet cooking so it was fun to read the recipes and I could definitely relate to receiving the "casserole"-type dishes which seem to be so typical in church settings. I wasn't able to figure out the perpetrator until it was revealed, which I thought was a good sign. And I will not reveal it now for my fellow readers.

Goldy's getting married!!! ... or is she!? In "The Last Suppers" Goldy must find her groom-to-be (Tom) before the person who murdered Father Olson murders Tom! You will find 10 delicious looking recipes in this book (such as: Monster Cinnamon Rolls, Lemon Butter Wafers and Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake). Another delightful book by Diane Mott Davidson.

Ms. Rosenblatt's reading is somehow just "not Goldy." Goldy's occasional irreverence (which is usually charming) is not the same as the snide tone taken by this reader. Happily, I read the book first and picked up the tapes at the library. The diction is clear and understandable, but sometimes words are mispronounced (i.e, pick-CAN-tee sauce). With so many different characters and the trillion "clues" strewn about, this story would be hard to keep track without having read the hard copy.

This book delves wonderfully into the details of the operations of a parish and makes those details relevant to the plot. I felt the characters were real people, not jsut cookie-cutter good and bad guys. I very much enjoyed each new wrinkle that Ms. Davidson stirred into the story.
