A typical Goldy mystery. She happens to be nearby when someone is murdered, is catering parties attended by all the people involved or who might be suspects in the murder (when she's not going to church with them)--and why is it that we never meet any of these people in previous books? It's like the population of Aspen Meadow completely changes with every book, except for the main characters. Tom and the rest of the police do little but chauffeur Goldy around. And Goldy gets into a car accident, falls down a mountain into a creek, and gets knocked out and almost suffocated in the snow all in one day but she just dusts herself off, has another gallon of espresso and caters another party. Oh, and steals a car. With out any good reason and no consequence. So why do I bother? Completely mindless and I like the descriptions of the food. I think there's one left in the series to go.
