Prime Cut: 10/24/12

cover art

Prime Cut by Diane Mott Davidson opens with Goldy helping her old semi-retired teacher cater a modeling session at a local historic cabin. She needs the gig for money to finish a remodel of her kitchen, abandoned by the local no-good contractor.

Soon Goldy has to contend with two deaths, food sabotage, competition from a showy but crap caterer, and a missing heritage cookbook. If you know anything about simple codes you'll figure out big chunks of this mystery well before Goldy does. I certainly did, but I still had fun waiting for Goldy to put it all together.

Prime Cut is the eighth in the Goldy Bear Culinary Mysteries. I'm listening to the Recorded Books productions as I can get a hold of them. That means I'm reading them out of order. I could read the paperbacks my library has but I think Barbara Rosenblat makes this series something extra special.

I like to listen to the Goldy books while I'm doing chores, especially cooking. Although the books all have about a dozen recipes included, I haven't tried any of them. I either already know how to make the included dish or it's not something I would normally eat. That said, it's still a fun series to cook to.

I also have to make a confession. I've got a crush on Julian. I'm listening more and more just for his parts.

Five stars
