From NY Times bestseller Sticks And Scones to Double Shot , author Diane Mott Davidson is back with her latest installment in the Goldy Bear Schulz mysteries titled, Dark Tort. And once again, proving that when it comes to the culinary whodunit -- she's the number one *diva* who always succeeds at getting the story told.
In this latest offering by Davidson, I'm told protagonist Goldy Schulz has a lucrative new gig, preparing breakfasts and conference-room snacks for a local law firm. It's time-consuming, but Goldy is enjoying it -- until the night she arrives to find Dusty, the firm's paralegal, dead. This young woman also happened to be Goldy's friend and neighbor, and now Dusty's grieving mother begs Goldy to find out who murdered her daughter. And just because the police are on the case, doesn't mean Goldy can't do a little snooping herself. While catering a party at the home of one of the firm's lawyers, she manages to overhear an incriminating conversation and ends up discovering a few clues in the kitchen. Before long, Goldy is knee-deep in suspects, one of whom is very liable to cook Goldy's *ahem*... goose.
In any event, if you love that cuddle-up "cozy" kind of mystery with a few mouth-watering food descriptions thrown in for good measure, this one is scheduled to officially be on the shelves by April 11th. In the meanwhile, Diane Mott Davidson is the capable author of a total of twelve best-selling novels in the Goldy Schulz series, so do check one -- or all -- of them out whenever you can.
And that's about it for me here this week. Have a super weekend -- and get out there and enjoy the spring season now that it's here. Peace.
