Tough Cookie: 07/30/13
Tough Cookie by Diane Mott Davidson is the ninth in the Goldy Bear Culinary Mystery series. It's winter again. Goldy's catering catering business is suffering because her kitchen doesn't have an up to date drainage. To keep busy, she's taken on a cooking show on the local PBS, which is filmed at the top of the nearby ski resort.
Goldy in her usual well meaning way, ends up in the middle of an old mystery — an avalanche death. In fact it seems lots and lots of people seem to have trouble getting down the mountain uninjured (or alive).
Toss into the mix the usual colorful characters who all have a reason or two to want to go on a killing spree. Of course, Goldy ends up being both the focus of the investigation, and the prime target!
