The Whole Enchilada (A Goldy Bear Culinary Mystery #17) Reviews
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 story begins with a 17th birthday party for Arch, the son of Goldie the caterer. Wish I'd been there as the recipes sounded fabulous! Fortunately, I can make those Enchiladas Suizas myself with the included recipe. No part ...more
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.
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.
For those of you that aren't familiar with the series, Goldy Shulz is a caterer in Colorada who is married to a policeman. Each novel is based on a crime that has taken place in their town with some connection to Gol ...more
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 relish the suspense, the clever sleuthing, and the brilliant wrap-up. However, this was not, in my opinion, Diane Mott Davidson's best book. In fact it may be her worst. The wrap-up chapter was long and introduced many ...more
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 as you'd remember). Goldy weeps and emotionally falls apart on cue, and gets badly injured yet still manages to have standing up shower sex without difficulty. Tom hovers around and deploys his whole police force as ...more
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.
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 at the same time and discovered that they were both married to Doctors, and not the nicest men to boot. Over the years they had lost touch with each other but Goldy considered Holly one of her most important friends an ...more
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.
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 book review goes on Goodreads, and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at https://thisismytruthnow.com, where you'll also find TV & Film reviews, the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge and lots of ...more
