My favorite DMD book would have to be the first one I read--Dying for Chocolate. I was shopping at my favorite book store and passed a display of staff recommendations. DFC was on the shelf and looked like a fun read. I had no expectations and just read it leisurely, falling in love with DMD instantly. I had found a treasure. Of course, I immediately went back and got the others, starting from the beginning and have bought every hardback since on the day of release. I love the fact that Goldy is a survivor. She has grown stronger and stronger through the series. I am an espresso addict myself and love that aspect of her character. I would like to see a story line taking place at a family reunion--skeletons in the closet kind of thing. I'm a big genealogy buff and think this plot could be fun. Bottom line: If DMD doesn't change a thing, that's fine by me. I'm a die hard fan. Love ya, DMD.

Like most of you I have also read all the Goldy Mysteries and enjoyed them all. I will be overly joyed when the next book comes out. I hear it will be out around Christmas. One thing I hope that Mott-Davidson does with the relationship between mother and son, is give mother a little more control over son. The way in which Arch speaks and reacts to Goldy sometimes turns me off. Which makes reading the mysteries a lesson in how not to rear a child. I hope in the books to come, as both Goldy and Arch grow older, that Arch gets a better attitude towards his mother and Goldy develops a strong backbone when it comes to Arch. I would also like to see as Davidson writes more Goldy mysteries several things: (1) Marla find a good man, maybe Boyd. (2) Tom and Goldy have a child together, although both didn't want more children. I feel that Tom need to experience what it is like to father a child. A little girl is needed in this picture as Arch grows older. (Although, he has a half brother). Before you know it he will be going off to college. Who will Goldy have to fuss over then, besides Tom? (3) More people of color is needed in these books. Being a person of mix race it would be nice to see a story line or two dealing with such issues. Because the way the books are written I feel as if there is no people of color in Colorado. However,I enjoy the books so much that I have them on tape, and Barbara Rosenblat does such a great job. I listen to them in my car, that makes rush hour traffic more bearable.

I have read all of Diane's books and just love them. I just read her last one, Double Shot and enjoyed it very much -- even though it had a sad ending. I hope her next book will have more info on The Jerk's other son and will be developed more. Am I correct in reading that another book is coming out soon? Dark Torte? Is it coming out this year?

I read that her last book "Double Shot"
will be out in Paperback on Sept 1, 05.
With that in mind it has been my
experience in reading her paperbacks
that she has in the past given a little
excerpt of her next book in the back.
So on Sept 1 lets all head to B & N!

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.

Anyone know when to expect the next Goldy book to come out?

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?
