My driving to the pool audio book last week. I love these stories for their food, and their fun, and their narrator, Barbara Rosenblatt. This was another wonderfully fun Goldy Schulz food filled mystery. This time the story centers around the wedding of Bridezilla Billie, who keeps changing wedding plans, and thinks that the world does not revolve around the sun, rather she is the center of the planetary system. Doesn't everyone add 50 people to the guest list less than 48 hours before the wedding, necessitating not only more food, but an entire change of venue? Goldy's godfather Jack, her trusty sidekick Julian, her effervescent endlessly rich friend Marla, her previous nemesis/rival Victor and the town's retired Dr (old Doc Finn) all play starring roles. There are hot tubs, smoothie shacks, country clubs and hospitals. Lots of espresso, and a spa in need of a nutrional upgrade. As usual Davidson treats us to a good plot, quirky characters, delightful settings, interesting dialogue and scrumptious recipes. The only problem with listening to them on audio, is that I end up going to the library to copy the recipes!
