Dark Tort - Goldy Schulz #14
Publisher: Endeavour Media
"[A] DELECTABLE READ … IN THE SUB-GENRE OF FOODIE MYSTERIES, DAVIDSON REMAINS THE MASTER CHEF" - Booklist
Caterer Goldy Schulz's lucrative new gig, preparing breakfasts and conference room snacks for a local law firm, is time-consuming, but she's enjoying it … until the night she arrives to find Dusty, the firm's paralegal, dead. The deceased also happened to be Goldy's friend and neighbor, and now Dusty's grieving mother is begging Goldy to find out who murdered her daughter.
Just because the police are on the case doesn't mean Goldy can't do a little snooping herself. While catering a party at the home of one of the firm's lawyers, she just happens to overhear an incriminating conversation. She also discovers a few tasty clues in the kitchen. Before long, Goldy finds herself knee-deep in suspects. But one of them is incredibly dangerous … and very liable to cook Goldy's goose.
