it was ok
bookshelves: food, 2008

Although I usually really enjoy reading about Goldy the caterer's adventures, Sweet Revenge was not quite as sweet as it could have been.

Somehow this plot did not work really well, and I was continually frustrated by Goldy's attitude, snooping and haphazard blundering around. This book seemed to stray even further from the interesting bits set around her catering and instead gave us more about her woes of dealing with wealthy clients. It really lacked all the best parts of Davidson's usual writing. In fact, thinking back I can't remember any of the typical food swooning, family antics, or clever insight. It felt like Goldy was going through the motions in the investigation, and Davidson was going through the motions in trying to get this book out the door.

It's a shame, because I think of Davidson as the original culinary sleuth writer, and this one just left a bad taste in my mouth. Hopefully she will find her inspiration again and I'll be salivating after the next one.
