I get a kick out of reading Diane Mott Davidson's Culinary Mysteries. The heroine, Goldy Schulz, is a hoot, and you know you're in for a laugh with her antics.
Goldy owns a catering business and keeps busy catering affairs in her hometown of Colorado. In Chopping Spree, Goldy is hired by her friend, Barry Dean, to cater the opening of his new mall. But Goldy does not expect to find her friend dead, and she also doesn't expect to find him killed with one of her carving knives. Goldy's righthand assistant, Julian, is arrested for the murder, and now Goldy must do what she can to prove Julian's innocence.
Chopping Spree is a fun book, and I enjoy the lightheartedness of Diane Mott Davidson's culinary mysteries. She may not be to everyone's liking, but I find her novels witty and entertaining. Murder mysteries are a favorite of mine, and I enjoy the fun ones the best.
If you are interested in really intense, deep reading, Diane Mott Davidson's books will not be for you. But if you want fun and just plain entertainment, I think you will find her novels to your liking.
