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.

From Batty’s Girl

I’m glad I took a break between the Goldy books I had been reading, I think that I was able to enjoy this one more because of it.  This one isn’t my favorite of the series and I felt it was a bit surreal, but I was able to enjoy it more because I hadn’t just finished one of her better books.
