“A cross between Mary Higgins Clark and Betty Crocker.”—Baltimore Sun“The Julia Child of mystery writers.”—Colorado Springs Gazette TelegraphNo one cooks up a tastier stew of murder, mystery, and mayhem than New York Times bestselling author Diana Mott Davidson. Entertainment Weekly calls her “today’s foremost practitioner of the culinary whodunit.” And now it’s Crunch Time, as Davidson’s delightful series protagonist, caterer and amateur sleuth-extraordinaire Goldy Schulz, digs into a deadly smorgasbord that includes a heaping helping of murder, a double dose of arson…and nine adorable beagle puppies!
I have liked Davidsons prior books but this one seemed tired and rote. It was the first time that Goldy was just plain irritating. She seemed to have lost her spunk. I did not feel anything for the characters. Even the recipes were not very inspiring.
