Comments for Sticks & Scones

Sticks & Scones: 08/20/13

cover artSticks & Scones by Diane Mott Davidson is the tenth of the Goldy Bear culinary mystery series. Goldy's catering business is still on hold because of the drains. Her PBS show has ended and now she's working as a live in caterer in an authentic castle brought to Colorado brick by brick some decades earlier.

As most of this story is set within the old castle, there's a bit of a ghost story tossed in. As Goldy learns the history of the castle and its move to Colorado, she also hears of a ghost story of a child who died of pneumonia.

It seems that every book Tom Schulz has some sort of reason to be out of the picture in terms of being able to help with the investigation, even though he works for the county sheriff's department. This time it's because he's been shot in the line of duty.

But it was the castle and it's history — ancient and recent — that kept me listening to the audio. There are a lot of fascinating details both how old castles functioned and the work needed to modernize them.

Five stars
