This was book number two in the Goldy Culinary Mysteries written by Diane Mott Davidson. In this story, Goldy, divorced from her abusive husband, decides to settle in quiet Aspen Meadow, Colorado. She gets a job as a live-in cook for a resident who is rather strange. Goldy also has two beaus, not bad at all until one of them gets himself killed in a strange accident which points a finger at Goldy. Goldy is also running her catering business and is receiving vicious reviews from a critic who seems intent on ruining her reputation.
Goldy is a very likable character in these Culinary Mysteries, and I have been attempting to find and read every book in the series that I can. Friends and family members know the best gift they can give me is a Barnes and Noble gift certificate. This book, Dying for Chocolate, is entertaining and enjoyable, and I was kept guessing as to the identity of the culprit (or culprits) up to the end of the story. This story is lighthearted reading, good for a quiet afternoon or evening.
