Absolutely a hilarious read. Murder, madness and mayhem abounds in this novel, not only the characters for the most part have funny names but the authors game them such wonderful personalities, The story was very well written and easy to follow. I know not everyone has the same sort of sense of humor but if you've ever been a fan of Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance (I Love Lucy), Bette Midler in her comedic roles or Estelle Getty (Sofia from The Golden Girls) you should surely enjoy this work.

It has always puzzled me why good satirical crime novels don't sell as well as mystery thrillers and romance books.
What's wrong with a damn good laugh?
This novel is a rollicking, funny, bizarre, witty and thoroughly entertaining story about the world of TV chefs in particular.Those that lord it over the kitchens of our finer hotels, restaurants and cafes are on par with these precious, moody, jealous prima donnas..
I know, as my son was a very talented chef who had the good sense to quit the sc

I tried but didn’t get past the sixth chapter. Too many cutesy play-on-word efforts and vaguely disguised imitations of better stuff.

A Corpse in the Soup - Reviewed by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat


Some one is sabotaging the cooking show of America's favorite Chef. Food testers are coming down with food poisoning, the Baked Alaska is blowing up and the paprika is as hot as Hades. But who would do this and why?

When I was young I enjoyed playing the board game "Clue." What made this game so much fun were the characters. So now I want to introduce you to the characters of A Corpse in the Soup. Let's see if you c

Goldie Silver and Godiva Olivia DuBois may be identical twins with the ability to communicate with one another telepathically, but that’s where their similarity ends. Fashion-conscious Godiva, living in Beverly Hills, writes an advice column called Ask G.O.D. Free spirit Goldie lives in Juneau, Alaska, where she owns an antique store. Godiva takes Goldie’s daughter Chili, a sous chef, to the taping of popular Chef Caesar Romano’s show. Romano asks Godiva to sample the food and she passes out fro ...more

This book was a hoot to read. The blurb on the back cover condenses the story best, "Identical twin sisters Goldie and Godiva take a wild and funny romp through the glitzy world of TV chefs - in search of a killer!"

This debut novel is the introduction to a series involving Goldie Silver, an antique dealer in Juneau, Alaska and her sister, Godiva, an advice columnist that goes by G.O.D. (Godiva Olivia DuBois.) Godiva is flooded with mail and needs help...now. Enlisted to help is the twin's 80yr o

The Silver Sisters Mystery series first offering.
Well read by Stephanie Brush. I enjoy most anything she reads.
This tale is centered around the Silver Sisters.. One lives in Alaska and her twin lives in Beverly Hills. Although identical twins their life styles and personalities are very different.
Their elderly, Jewish mother and Uncle live with the sister in Beverly Hills and add fun "color" to the tale.
This isn't a "high tension" murder mystery but it was a fun listen.

Such a fun read. Actually, a fun listen, since I listened to the audiobook.

I especially enjoyed that the story took place in the same neighborhood where I grew up (and the heroines went to my high school) and that the family was Jewish, with the typical lingo, speech patterns, and use of Yiddish terms.

What I learned from this book is that I can write books people like. My sister and I write the wacky Silver Sisters series. The protagonists are silver-haired Mae West lookalikes with a nose for trouble. Goldie Silver, an over-the-hill hippie who lives in Juneau, Alaska and her twin, Godiva Olivia DuBois, wealthy Beverly Hills widow and advice columnist author of the lovelorn column "Ask G.O.D." When Godiva is poisoned on Chef Caesar Romano's show "Flirting With Food" he flirts with more than fo ...more

Funny little who done it with lots of endearing characters

I got this book to read as an award winner for a challenge i am working on, but alas, the award was in a different category than I needed it to be. Still, I really enjoyed it and can see why it was an award winner... The characters are funny and full of crazy antics and ideas, although the names are a bit too alliterate for my tastes. The plot is well developed and the action, while zany does keep one's interest. I'd definitely read another book or two by these authors...

This is one zany cozy mystery. Quirky characters with even quirkier names, a murder at a chef's cook-off television show and lots of crazy antics by the twin sister amateur sleuth team, Goldie and Godiva, along with all their equally slightly-off-the wall relatives, makes this a light and funny cozy mystery. I have to admit, it was really different and I enjoyed the slight twist at the very end.

Very Good and Funny. I esp. liked the language and accents used by the reader on audiobook. I love twins and stories about twins so this was an extra fun book to hear.
Great mystery as well and the older members of the Silver family are hilarious!
Carol
Morgan St. James has written an amusing cozy mystery to say the least. The antics of all those involved had me laughing throughout this mystery. Looking forward to following this author.
