The Whole Enchilada (A Goldy Bear Culinary Mystery #17) Reviews
I love a good culinary mystery, purely light reads just for entertainment. This book was a delightful read, as have been all the other Goldie the caterer books, though it's not my favorite in the series. I received a free pre-release copy from the publisher.
The Whole Enchilada story begins with a 17th birthday party for Arch, the son of Goldie the caterer. Wish I'd been there as the recipes sounded fabulous! Fortunately, I can make those Enchiladas Suizas myself with the included recipe. No part ...more
The Whole Enchilada, the 17th book in Diane Mott Davidson's Goldy Bear Culinary Mystery series, is the apparent conclusion to the series. The story stumbles to a rather too-simple conclusion to a series for which I had somewhat higher hopes. Readers of the series may as well finish it out with The Whole Enchilada, but don't expect to be fulfilled at the end.
As with the previous installments in the series, main character Goldy the caterer stumbles into The Whole Enchilada and, despite being distr ...more
The latest in the Goldy Bear Culinary Series and it certainly delivers. As usual, Goldy is involved in aiding the local law enforcement establishment in solving crimes such as murder, attempted murder and even blackmail. Goldy herself is the target of a murderer who believes she is in possession of information very vital to him. With her trusted friend Marla, business associate, Julian, Police detective husband and others, she is off to solve the murder of her special friend Holly and the viciou ...more
So trashy and fun and not very well-written. I will never stop reading this series, which I started back when Diane Mott Davidson did! And I will question her sense of time in EVERY book which has ridiculous amounts of things crammed in an hour. Suspension of disbelief for vacation reading, ya'll.
Davidson employs the usual formula with its typical absurdities. People come on the scene with supposedly full formed deep relationships with Goldy and her family members only to die like redshirts. Yet we've nary had mention of them in the previous dozen or so books (at least not so as you'd remember). Goldy weeps and emotionally falls apart on cue, and gets badly injured yet still manages to have standing up shower sex without difficulty. Tom hovers around and deploys his whole police force as ...more
This is my first of the series of 17 Goldie Shultz culinary mysteries. It was easy to jump right in. Would I read others? – Sure, if the price was right. I think what makes this series great is 1) you don’t have to go through a lot of back story to get to the current story. 2) You can pick up in the middle and all the characters feel like old friends. 3) No stress reading and no one is schooling you on technical skills.
This story is enjoyable and fun, despite its rather improbable events. Goldie ...more
This was a fun, simple murder mystery to read. A friend lent it to me to read after I raved about a cookie recipe she shared with me and told me the recipe came from a Diane Mott Davidson book. Each of her Goldy Schulz books includes recipes at the end. Goldy is a caterer / sleuth and there are many references to food in the book which will make your mouth water. It isn't the most well written book I've ever read or anything .. but it was fun and a good distraction.
The Goldy Schulz novels follow the caterer as she manages to blunder over one dead body after another in Aspen Meadow, Colorado. And no matter how much the police chief (who also happens to be her husband) wants her out of harm’s way, she seems to stumble into that as well as she tries to get justice for the recently deceased.
In this latest installment, The Whole Enchilada, her friend Holly drops dead after leaving a birthday party catered by Goldy. Even as the police try to figure out whether s ...more
