What a mess Goldy always gets herself into! This time I wondered how she ever had time to cook for the many catering events she had booked while she was doing her investigating! ( )

This story, number five in Goldy, the caterer series, features lowfat recipes, Goldy's assistant Julian, her new husband Detective Tom, Marla's heart attack, a blue rose and hemlock. I find the characters quite entertaining with some real life events, not just recipes and a mystery in the mix. I didn't enjoy her laughing off the prerogative of her new husband sabotaging her catering event. In other stories in the series he's more of a help than a hindrance. Enjoyable read. ( )

Goldie Schultz, caterer was trying to figure out a low-fat menu fo a new client. She was to cater an event for the Mignon cosmetics kickoff for new line of makeup. Julian, who boarded at Goldie’s home as well as a chef in training, was dating Mignon’s best sales clerk. That same day Goldie had to do a food fair at the mall. It was also 4th of July weekend, with a large party to cater. Goldie needed help. Julian was more interested in being with Claire. Nevertheless Goldie managed to get the low-fat food prepared and to the mall. While at the mall, Claire was killed by a hit and run. When Goldie got home she was greeted by The Jerk, her ex husband. He told her that Marla, Goldie’s best friend had had a heart attack. Goldie was stressed out between Marla in the hospital and Julian grieving over Claire. Something odd was going on at Mignon Cosmetics. Cooking, chaos, death and poison made life crazy. Goldie’s new husband, Detective Tom Schultz, was being kept very busy at work. Goldie had to figure out what was going on while trying to care for everybody but herself.

It was an ok read. There was way too much unnecessary detail written in. The dialog was rather stilted. The action was slow and methodical. It wasn’t awful, just simply a so-so read. ( )

Goldy Schultz, owner of Goldilocks Catering, has with some reservations, agreed to cater a low-cal lunch banquet for Mignon Cosmetics. It could open up a new market, and her assistant, Julian, is dating one of the Mignon sales associates, Claire Satterfield. And it's only one afternoon. How bad can it be?

Her doubts come rushing back when she has to run a gauntlet of animal rights activists calling themselves Spare the Hares, who even have dead rabbits to wave around. Then Claire Satterfield is killed in the mall parking garage by a hit-and-run driver before they even have all the food inside. Goldy calls 911, and she and her homicide detective husband Tom have to break the news to Julian.

Even more disturbingly, Goldy discovers the police don't think it was an accident.

This is an intricate story involving illicit affairs, commercial espionage, cutthroat competition and fraud between Mignon sales staff, and an old, well-buried scandal of terrible injuries caused by cosmetics testing. Goldy learns more about her neighbors and potential clients than she really wanted to know--and all while there's drama enough in her own family and household. It's not just Julian losing Claire. Marla, Goldy's best friend and the other ex-wife of her abusive ex-husband John Richard Korman, has had a heart attack. Do I need to say that John Richard is not staying away, and that Goldy has some difficulty letting the fancy security system Tom has installed do its thing? No?

This is a fun, fast-paced mystery with the main secondary characters just developed enough to make an engaging story.

Recommended.

No free galley to declare on this one; I borrowed it from the library. ( )

O vraiment marâtre Nature,

Not to allow such a flower to live
Even from morning until evening.)
