THE WHOLE ENCHILADA
Goldy Schulz knows her food is to die for, but she never expects one of her best friends to actually keel over while she's leaving a birthday party Goldy's catered. At first, everyone assumes that all the fun and excitement of the party, not to mention the rich fare, did her in.
But what looks like a coronary turns out to be a generous serving of cold-blooded murder. And the clever culprit is just getting cooking.
When a colleague—a woman who resembles Goldy—is stabbed, and Goldy is attacked outside her house, it becomes clear that the popular caterer is the main course on a killer menu. With time running out, Goldy must roll up her sleeves, sharpen her knives, and make a meal out of a devious murderer, before that killer can serve her up cold.
More like a cozy mystery with lots of recipes at the end, Goldy went through abuse, the loss of a good friend, too much for one person but she pulled herself together each time. Some of the things were a tad unrealistic but to me that's what a cozy mystery is. A fast read that did leave me guessing who the killer was!
I received a copy of this book free from Harper Collins in exchange for an honest review.
