A caterer's nightmare...Caterer Goldy Schulz is convinced things couldn't get worse. An unscrupulous rival is driving her out of business. An incompetent contractor has left her precious kitchen in shambles. And she has just agreed to cater a fashion shoot at a nineteenth-century mountain cabin with her mentor and old friend, French chef André Hibbard.A dash of cold-blooded murder...Together Goldy and André struggle in a hopelessly outdated kitchen to cater to a vacuous crowd of beautiful people whose personal dramas climax when a camera is pitched through a window...into the buffet. Then Goldy's contractor is found hanging in the house of one of her best friends. A second murder follows and Goldy must somehow solve a mystery and prepare for a society soirée that could make--or break--her career.A recipe for disaster...It's a mystery that involves the dead contractor's unwholesome past, a food saboteur, the theft of four historical cookbooks, and an overzealous D.A. who has suspended Goldy's detective husband, Tom, from the force. What Goldy discovers is the perfect recipe for murder. And she may be dessert!

Only keeping for the recipes.
A horrible combination - Agatha Christie meets Anthony Bourdain. Geez, who can think about eating (granted, a gourmet meal) when a murder happened in the very room you're preparing it in? No job? Second mortgage? Down to the last savings? ... and you still prepare a meal fit for kings? What is the l...
Why did this get a 1 star? Well, the blurb was funny for me. When Andre is killed, Goldy slips into her super-detective mode to find out who murdered two such disparate victims and why the antique cookbooks were stolen.Goldy has a super-detective mode? Right, like the guy in the Pink Panther movi...
