Publisher's Summary

Diane Mott Davidson’s New York Times best-selling novels are gourmet fare for mystery lovers. Recipes for such delicacies as "911 Chocolate Emergency Cookies" and "Damson-in-Distress Plum Tart" make Sticks & Scones especially delightful.

Catering Elizabethan fare to Aspen Meadow’s elite at an authentic castle brought from England is a dream come true for Goldy. But the day of the luncheon, Goldy is rudely awakened by a shotgun blast through her living room window. As the day goes on, she finds a murder victim floating in a stream on castle property, watches someone close to her get shot, and begins to see the ghost that haunts the castle. Instead of a welcome opportunity, this job has suddenly become a waking nightmare.

Award-winning narrator Barbara Rosenblat adds an exciting zest to Goldy’s misadventures. Listeners go wide-eyed and willingly into a mystery that builds suspense to the last moment.

Another great book with Goldie!

The Goldie cooking mysteries is one of my all time favorite series. This book is another in the line of great reads (or listens)! Lots of twists and turns keeps the listener/reader guessing until the end. I highly recommend.

not her best book

not her best book. maybe she was in a deadline. A large part of the book is just a long monolog by the heroine. Almost everyone gets taken out by some injury leaving only Ms. G left standing to solve the case. And the little surprise guest hidden for 7 years? really? if you haven't read this author before, start with a different book. She really is a better writer.

background noise

I don't know if it was her breathing, swallowing or background noise but it was distracting and very gross sounding. this should have been edited out better

Delicious

While listening, I was so hungry. The descriptions of the foods made my belly smile, especially the vegetarian ones. Julian is my favorite character.
I’ve enjoyed all of the Davidson culinary mysteries I’ve listened to. I’m ready for more.

Goldy Does it Again!

Loved the story. Narrator is wonderful. Characters are so complete, really enjoyed this book. I have read many of Ms. David's books and made several of the recipes. Makes me smile and my family loves all the recipes!

Riveting story

I found the story to be riveting with a unexpected twist at the end. I didn't figure out the villain until the very end.

Senior citizen reading a story about an early to mid 30’s protagonist

Good job , if you ignore the voice of a 69 year old woman reading a story mostly in the first person about a woman in her early to mid-30’s .. (a bit disconcerting)

good book

this book didn't make much sence. the plot kept you guessing, but only because you know the killer from the onset. the plot twists were confussing and not needed. after each twist, only one person remained a suspect. with a cop in the house, the whole affair could have been resolved much faster, but then how could the main character stumble into the hero role? the narrator brought the characters to life.
