    So trashy and fun and not very well-written. I will never stop reading this series, which I started back when Diane Mott Davidson did! And I will question her sense of time in EVERY book which has ridiculous amounts of things crammed in an hour. Suspension of disbelief for vacation rea...

    A good ending to a series I have really enjoyed . . . . although WAY too much happened, and way too quickly, in the epilogue. ...

    The latest in the Goldy Bear Culinary Series and it certainly delivers. As usual, Goldy is involved in aiding the local law enforcement establishment in solving crimes such as murder, attempted murder and even blackmail. Goldy herself is the target of a murderer who believes she is in ...

    Several years have passed since Davidson?s last book in the series about Goldy, the Colorado caterer, who has survived any number of life changing events ? an abusive husband, single parenting, starting a new business who is now married to a highly ranked police detective in Aspen ...

    For some reason that I cannot explain, I keep reading these mysteries. I think I do it just to see if Goldy and the other characters have changed at all. In this particular book (her last?), all I can say is that Goldy is slightly less strident than she has been in previous stories. Sh...

    I gave this book 2 stars and not 1 like I really think it deserves, only because I did manage to finish the whole thing. Can This Be the End of Goldy and her Snooping? This was one of the most convoluted books I have ever read. Mysteries are supposed to be somewhat difficult t...

    I have read all of the books in this series, and frankly, sometimes I wonder why. They first started out as an interesting concept - a caterer, with a police investigator husband, who gets herself involved in mysteries who is aided by her best friend a wealthy socialite. The books are ...

    Skimmed to finish. Felt like the end was the end of the series. and if it is I think series fans would be happy with Goldy'S ending. I am bored by Goldy and find this was formulaic and filled with filler. ...

    I have to admit that I LOVE the Goldy Schulz 'culinary mystery' series! I have been following the series for years. In 'The Whole Enchilada', Goldy, owner of Goldilocks Catering ('where everything is just right!), is preparing to cater a combined 17th birthday party for her son Arch an...

    In this 17th book in the series, Goldy the caterer looks into the suspicious death of a friend. The book can be read as a standalone. ***** This isn't one of Diane Mott Davidson's best efforts. In this book Goldy is catering a Mexican food birthday party for a teen after which ...

    I didn't finish reading it as the extended descriptions of menus, homes, peoples attire,etc. bored me to tears. Quite a shame, since I really enjoyed her own earlier works. ...

    http://openbooksociety.com/article/th... Brought to you by guest reviewer Mary C. The Goldy Schulz books have been going stale for quite some time and this latest visit with Goldy and friends is no exception. Most of the story is formulaic. The freshness and enthusiasm featured i...

    Goldy Schulz is at it again in the latest book in the series. When her good friend Holly dies after leaving her son?s birthday party, Goldy discovers that there was a lot going on in Holly?s life that Goldy knew nothing about. Goldy and Holly met when they gave birth to their sons ...

    Although this is a review of book number 17 in the Goldy Bear Culinary Mystery series, this will address the series as a whole as well. Mild Spoilers! When this series first came out, with Catering to Nobody in 1990, I found it quite fun and enjoyable. Goldie and I shared similar ba...

    I must be getting cantankerous in my old age but Goldy Schultz did not really amuse me this time. Here are my problems with her in this book: 1. Who goes to her parties or hires her? There is always a dead body at her catering events. 2. She has gotten rude. She shows up at 8 am on ...

    This was a fun, simple murder mystery to read. A friend lent it to me to read after I raved about a cookie recipe she shared with me and told me the recipe came from a Diane Mott Davidson book. Each of her Goldy Schulz books includes recipes at the end. Goldy is a caterer / sleuth and ...

    I've been avoiding cozies of late because I was beginning to find them tiresome. However, I really do enjoy Davidson's Goldy the caterer novels. Plus there are enough murders to make it a little less - er - cozy! The book opens with Goldy preparing the food for a joint birthday party f...

    A fitting end to a good series. I will miss reading more of Goldy's antics! Perhaps it will come back again... :( The characters were always so vivid. About Me For those new to me or my reviews... here's the scoop: I read A LOT. I write A LOT. And now I blog A LOT. First the bo...

    The Whole Enchilada, the 17th book in Diane Mott Davidson's Goldy Bear Culinary Mystery series, is the apparent conclusion to the series. The story stumbles to a rather too-simple conclusion to a series for which I had somewhat higher hopes. Readers of the series may as well finish it ...

    Like #16, this novel had a very complex plot and just wasn't as tight as the earlier books. On the other hand, if this is the last book in the series, things were wrapped up nicely. And officier Boyd did stand-up comedy! Who knew? ...

    The Whole Enchilada is the 17th book in the Goldy Schulz Culinary Mystery Series. I recently ranted about authors who seem to become bored with their own characters and series. It's refreshing that Ms. Davidson still seems to enjoy writing this series and has a lot of fun with Goldy. ...

    I have been waiting for this, what might be the final (17th) addition is the Goldy the caterer series...I am glad that I waited to get it from the library than actually purchasing it! While being fairly fast paced and quite suspenseful, it lacked the previous feature of Goldy's caterin...

    This is the 17th book in the Goldy Schulz Culinary Mystery series. Goldy Schulz is a caterer who lives in Aspen Meadow, Colorado, 40 miles from Denver. This book opens with her son Arch's 17th birthday party. The party is chaotic, and ends with the murder of of one Goldy's good friends...

    I am not such a fan of this author, but I can't stay away from the books! The recipe for Chocolate Comfort Cookies in The Grilling Season has become a standard of excellence in my family. The writing is very clumsy at times, there are uncomfortable exchanges of dialogue one after t...

    I've read all of the Goldy books and find this one to be my least favorite. I got annoyed at the repetition of information that the author kept slinging at the reader . First we were in the scene, then later on Goldy would repeat the scene to someone and then she would remember the sce...

    The Goldy Schulz novels follow the caterer as she manages to blunder over one dead body after another in Aspen Meadow, Colorado. And no matter how much the police chief (who also happens to be her husband) wants her out of harm?s way, she seems to stumble into that as well as she tri...

    I love a good culinary mystery, purely light reads just for entertainment. This book was a delightful read, as have been all the other Goldie the caterer books, though it's not my favorite in the series. I received a free pre-release copy from the publisher. The Whole Enchilada stor...

    By book 17 in the series, the characters are old friends, Goldy, Marla, Tom, Archie, Julian and the rest; nice to see them again even though someone or other has to die for us to get back together. For mystery readers that is not as sad as it sounds. We expect a sudden murder and relis...

    This is my first of the series of 17 Goldie Shultz culinary mysteries. It was easy to jump right in. Would I read others? ? Sure, if the price was right. I think what makes this series great is 1) you don?t have to go through a lot of back story to get to the current story. 2) You ...

    Davidson employs the usual formula with its typical absurdities. People come on the scene with supposedly full formed deep relationships with Goldy and her family members only to die like redshirts. Yet we've nary had mention of them in the previous dozen or so books (at least not so a...
