A deliciously deadly novel by the New York Times bestselling author of Prime Cut .

"A surprisingly tart and savory reading experience."-- The Washington Post Book World

When caterer Goldy Schulz is offered a temporary stint hosting a cooking show for PBS, she jumps at the chance. After all, she could use the money--not to mention the great exposure. Plus taping the shows at Colorado's posh Killdeer Ski Resort will be fun. A little cooking, a little chitchat. What could go wrong?

The answer: everything! When Goldy has to do one of her shows live for a PBS telethon, the broadcast is riddled with culinary catastrophes--from the Chesapeake Crab Cakes right down to the Ice-Capped Gingersnaps. But the deadliest dish of all comes after the cameras go off--and a baffling accident claims a life. Then a series of suspicious mishaps places Goldy's own life in jeopardy, and she knows she'd better whip up her own crime-solving recipe, and fast--before a deadly dash of danger ends her cooking career once and for all. . . .

(The ninth book in the Goldy Schulz series)

hermlou Aug 17, 2011

Goldy isn't allowed to work until the drains in her kitchen are repaired, so she offers to sell a pair of historic skis to Doug Portman. They arrange to meet on a slope, and she finds him dead of a skiing accident. The only problem is that two other people have died recently, and she wonders about the connection. Suspects are the angry son of one victim, the widow of another, and an ex-convict. At the end of the book Goldy finds out who is guilty and has to run for her life. There is a true atmosphere of Colorado winter and the bonus of a few recipes.
