This series has grown, and I like the changes it s making Not only has Goldie and her family grown and changed, she has matured too She doesn t do as many stupid things as she used to I equate it to the girl that goes by herself down in to the dark basement in a horror movie I think Tom has been a good influence on her And yet they are not less interesting, and there is not less action For a caterer she gets sucked in to a lot I like that they are light, fast reads It bothered me a little that this one and I think the last one were out of town But I guess there can only be so many murders in one small town before it get hokey And it s as good of way as any other to get new blood no pun intended into a series Definitely and addict, and will definitely be finishing the series D My mom originally read this book and recommended it to me I liked how there were actual recipes throughout the book However the actual mystery was a little crazy for my taste It seemed like so much was happening that I had a hard time keeping everything straight I was thrown for a loop when we found out what actually happened in the end though Overall this was a fun read and one I m glad my mom recommended.
