I just finished reading both "Chopping Spree" and "Double Shot" Enjoyed both but with all the heavy cream, butter, pastries, not to mention the expressos I am starting to wonder what Miss Goldy looks like. I'm figuring about 250 lbs and high cholestrol. Well, it is fiction.

I enjoy the Godie mysteries so much and I in the last month just discovered the outstanding novels. I just finished Double Shot and I am looking forward to the next novel. I would like to know when the next Godie novel will be released and the name of it? I heard that it is called Dark Torte, is that true and when will it be released?

¼ cup currants
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons well-chilled unsalted butter, cut into 4 pieces
1 large egg
¼ cup whipping cream
½ cup milk
2 teaspoons sugar (optional)
Butter, whipped cream, jams, curds, and marmalades
Place the currants in a medium-sized bowl and pour boiling water over them just to cover. Allow to stand for 10 minutes. Drain the currants, pat them dry with paper towels, and set aside.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. With the motor running, add the butter and process until the mixture looks like cornmeal. In a separate bowl, beat the egg slightly with the cream and milk. With the motor still running, pour the egg mixture in a thin stream into the flour mixture just until the dough holds together in a ball. Fold in the currants.
On a floured surface, lightly pat the dough into 2 circles, each about 7 inches in diameter. Cut each circle into 6 even pieces. Place the scones on a buttered baking sheet 2 inches apart. Sprinkle them with the optional sugar, if desired.
Make about 15 minutes, or until the scones are puffed, golden, and cooked through. Serve with butter, whipped cream, and jams.
Makes 12 scones.

I've listened to the first 10 books on tape. I thoroughly enjoyed each one and have recommended the series to countless friends. The stories are read by Barbara Rosenblat, the most fabulous narrator I know of. She makes the stories truly come alive, with her talent to do so many voices and accents, and assign a fitting and unique voice to each character. These great stories become stupendous with B as the narrator.
How disheartened I was to start Chopping Spree and hear a strange voice. I stopped the tape and seriously considered taking it back to the library. I've decided, reluctantly, to continue. If the new narrator continues to disappoint, I will scratch future books on tape, and read the rest.
Mrs. Davidson, if you read this, please get Barbara Rosenblat back!

I have really enjoyed all of the "Goldie" books and have passed them on to my 2 daughters and 2 friends who have all enjoyed them tremendously. I'm currently reading Sticks & Scones. I bought this copy from a second hand bookstore and unfortunately the page with the recipe for Castle Scones had been ripped out. Since I've also recently gotten into making scones I would really love a copy of this recipe. Thank You, Sue
