i adore the whole series, have baked/cooked alot of the recipes and would love to get to know goldy's parents/siblings. it definately takes on an air of fiction (at least where i come from) to be so disconnected from background prior marriage- diane describes in wonderful detail goldy's life now, i am really curious about her childhood and other relatives and would love to meet them in the next book. anyone else too?

I just started reading a book titled Cream Puff Murder (Joanne Fluke)thought it was one of Diane's. What a copy cat. Lead bakes cookies, brother in law is a sheriff. Receipts included.
Anyone know if there is a law suit, doesn't seem right to copy like that

Tried to use the recipe from Prime Cut, Blondes' Blondies. They are VERY loose and the middle ones when cutting, fell apart. Did you revise this recipe from the book?

Love all of her books. I agree that Crunch Time was a bit too long but still enjoy Mott Davidsons writing and love the character of Goldy. Now I can't wait for her new book. For the woman who complained that Goldy took on too many things herself instead of asking her husband for help and she is still alive. It's call FICTION.

I was disappointed with Crunch Time. I found it too long, too complicated, and too tedious to get through and would have preferred more about Marla, and Arch, and Tom and much less about Yoland and her aunt.

The Goldly-caterer books are a fun read; so Goldy is not perfect - are you? Have read them all in the order they are published and would not miss a one. If you don't like the character(s), the plot lines etc., find something else to read; as for me and my family we will continue to read this series.

I was just curious because i just read sweet revenge. Why in the world is Goldy so hard set against asking for assistance from her husband I mean there was a part in which Goldy sees an murderer in the nearby house and instead of calling her husband or the other police she decides to go to the house where the suspect threatens to shoot her and later escapes all without Goldy ever even trying to call Tom. This is after the murderer had already had an up and close encounter with Goldy and threatened her with a knife. She neglects her son who almost always seems to be sleeping at someone elses house and she neglects her own health because she was upset that once again someone got the drop on her. I mean come on, no one could really be that unintelligent and still solve all those mysteries and still be in the land of the living. Sigh..

EL - I'm sorry you are having trouble with the character's speech. I don't know about the writer, but the character goes to church. The OT shows that God works through imperfect people, despite ourselves. And He still does.

You must be kidding? How shallow and intolerant

I have truly enjoyed all of Diane Mott Davidson's books, but am very disappointed to say that I will not be reading her anymore. She used the Lord's name 3 times in a row in Crunch Time, and that is something that stops me in my tracks. His name should be held above all others with honor and glory, so she will no longer be on my reading list.
