Synopsis:
Goldy Bear is the bright, opinionated, wildly inventive caterer whose personal life is a recipe for disaster, with bills taking a bite out of her budget and her abusive ex-husband making tasteless threats. Determined to take control, Goldy moves her business to the ritzy Aspen Meadow Country Club. Soon she’s preparing decadent dinners and posh society picnics—and enjoying the favors of Philip Miller, a handsome local shrink, and Tom Schulz, her more-than-friendly neighborhood cop. Until, that is, the dishy doctor drives his BMW into an oncoming bus. Convinced that Philip’s bizarre death was no accident, Goldy begins to sift through the dead doc’s unpalatable secrets. But this case is seasoned with unexpected danger and even more unexpected revelations—the kind that could get a caterer killed.

Review:
The Caterer

Meet Goldy Bear: a bright, opinionated, wildly inventive caterer whose  personal life has become a recipe for disaster. She's got  an abusive ex-husband who's into making tasteless threats, a rash of mounting bills that are taking a huge bite out of her budget, and two enticing  men knocking on her door.

The Dish

Now determined to take control of her life, Goldy  moves her business and her son to ritzy Aspen  Meadow Country Club, where she accepts a job as a  live-in cook. But just as she's beginning to think  she's got it made--catering decadent dinners and  posh society picnics and enjoying the favors of  Philip Miller, a handsome local shrink, and Tom Shulz,  her more-than-friendly neighborhood cop--the  dishy doctor inexplicably drives his  BMW into an oncoming bus.


The Unsavory  Killer

Convinced that Philip's bizarre  death was no accident, Goldy decides to do a little  investigating of her own. But sifting through the  unpalatable secrets of the dead doc's life will  toss her into a case seasoned with unexpected danger  and even more unexpected revelations--the kind that could get a caterer and the son she loves. . .killed.

Book Description: Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc, United States, 1997. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 173 x 104 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Meet Goldy Bear: a bright, opinionated, inventive caterer who whips up gastronomical delights for a living - but whose personal life has become a recipe for disaster. Blame it on her abusive ex-husband Dr. John Richard Korman, aka the Jerk, who has taken to driving slowly by her house, phoning just to hang up, and in general making some pretty tasteless threats. Or on the mounting monthly bills that have taken a huge bite out of her strained budget. Or on the fact that after years of romantic starvation Goldy is now torn between two eligible and eminently appealing men. It s enough to make the sanest of women crack under the strain. But instead, Goldy has taken steps. She s moved herself, her eleven-year-old son, Arch, and her catering business (Goldilocks Catering, Where Everything Is Just Right!) out to the ritzy Aspen Meadow Country Club area, where she s accepted a summer job as a live-in cook - in a mansion that has more alarms than the Denver Mint. As for her complicated love life, Goldy can t predict who ll win her heart. But she s doing her best to enjoy the favors of Philip Miller, a handsome local shrink who s also an old flame, and the friendship of Tom Schulz, a burly homicide investigator at the Furman County Sheriff s Department. Until one morning, after catering the dreaded Elk Park Preparatory School alumni brunch, Goldy sets out to share an espresso with Philip and bears witness as his custard-colored BMW swerves wildly on a hazardous descent, skids onto a slick highway, and slams into an oncoming bus. The shock is absolute; the questions legion: How could Philip be fine one minute and driving as if drunk the next? Why was he wearing sunglasses on a cloudy day? If hehad car trouble, why hadn t he simply pulled over? Convinced that Philip s death was no accident, Goldy feels compelled to do some investigating on her own. Between catering decadent dinners and posh society picnics - and with the help of her more-than-friendly neighborhood cop -. Bookseller Inventory # BZV9780553560244
