Pretty good, as the series goes. After reading SOOO many books in this series, though, I'd be shocked if the author came up with anything new as to plot strategy or character "development" (it's as predictable as a Nancy Drew mystery, nearly) but I do get a kick out of how the recipes factor into the development of each story. I'm always basically pleased with each book in the series if I end without being majorly irritated by the protagonist (check! I was okay with Goldy in this one) and if there are enough paths towards solving the crime that it's not just an obvious straight track. But--c'mon, Diane Mott Davidson, ENOUGH already with the characters with ridiculous names! I counted more than 5 characters in this book alone with utterly bizarro names. You know, it truly is OKAY to call someone a plain name. For example: Bob. Pam. Ken. Or whatever. You needn't try so hard that it becomes comical. But I know you will, because in most of your books so far, you have. SIGH.
