    Review 3 1 2 rounded up to 4 out 5 stars for The Last Suppers, the fourth in the Gold Bear Culinary Mystery series, by Diane Mott Davidson In this book, Goldy s about to get married, but unfortunately the wedding might be delayed when Tom calls about a murder And it s a priest Goldy s close with other parishioners and the clerical folks in her Colorado church, but she is shocked to discover what s lurking beneath the surface when she digs a little deeper this time For a bride to be, she s certainly not having any fun Drama everywhere, both in her personal life and with the murder Tom warns her to stay out of it, but she can t help herself The book follows the normal pattern and is another good edition in the series I enjoy the characters and there is growth unlike some cozies where the main character tosses back and forth between two suitors forever In this one, there is actually forward motion and a marriage I like when love wins out a bit A nice surprise in the latter portion of the book makes things better.Smooth sailing with the series at this point I had no real concerns at this point About Me For those new to me or my reviews here s the scoop I read A LOT I write A LOT And now I blog A LOT First the book review goes on Goodreads, and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at where you ll also find TV Film reviews, the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge and lots of blogging about places I ve visited all over the world And you can find all my social media profiles to get the details on the who what when where and my pictures Leave a comment and let me know what you think Vote in the poll and ratings Thanks for stopping by Note All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them Many thanks to their original creators polldaddy poll 9729544 polldaddy poll 9719251

    A chum of mine, who is a reader of the annual General Ordination Examinations of the Episcopal Church, recommended this book to me, knowing that I am a member of the General Board of Examining Chaplains, the group that writes the exam The author, Diane Mott Davidson, was for many years a member of the Board of Examining Chaplains of the Diocese of Colorado Eventually, she would set one of her culinary murder mysteries in and around an Episcopal Church As a bonus, Goldy Bear the caterer detective protagonist is also a member of the diocesan examining chaplains and there are a lot of details about the General Ordination Exam in this little book Like many of the best works of culinary fiction, this one includes recipes Not quite a cozy, this work has greatest appeal for women readers Davidson spends a lot of time telling the reader what the characters are wearing, right down to precisely defined colours, which are meaningless to many men The heroine is believable, likeable and clever and, it would appear, a pretty good cook I m happy to have read this particular one in her mystery series I am unlikely to read another.

    I listened to the audiobook and find the narrator to be very entertaining The author to the suspense right down to the very end This has turned into one of my favorite cozy mysteries.

    OH MY GOD I HATED IT.Only a few pages in and I m already super annoyed with this book 1 It is being super religious 2 I find it super annoying that Goldy is all upset about what she is wearing on the day of her wedding I m sorry, I don t know any bride who takes shit from anyone It is YOUR day, YOU choose what to wear, so no one, not even the church can tell you that you have to wear a suit or a hat To me it seemed like unnecessary drama from the writer just to create drama for dramas sake.Not impressed so far.So after slogging and I mean slogging through 106 pages, I finally gave up I just could not stand the story any, could not stand the fact that everyone was clomping in the story So I did something I never do, I mean I never give up on a book And if I give up on the book it generally means I m giving up on the series But this is not the case, I ll continue on to the next book, but if that one gives me the same issues I ll give up on the entire series I also did something I never do, in I read the last 2 chapters of the book For morbid curiosity I wanted to know who did it, and if Tom survived.Really, I do not feel like I ve missed out on the story by skipping forward.I cannot believe how much I disliked this book Hopefully the next one will be better.Added 05 06 2013 3 years later and I still haven t bothered picking up the next book in the series I guess this one really just did kill my desire to see what came next.

    This is book 4 in the Goldy Bear Culinary Mystery series The Altar Guild ladies seem to have everything under control for the wedding reception, but Goldy just can t stay out of the kitchen She SHOULD be dressed by now because it s her own wedding Yes, Goldy and homicide detective Tom Schulz are going to tie the knot But the pastor is late, the reception hall is locked, and no one else seems to have the keys Just before the ceremony is to begin Goldy gets a call from Tom the wedding isn t going to happen today Pastor Olson has been murdered When the police finally arrive at the church they bring even worse news Tom Schulz is missing, apparently kidnapped by Olson s killer.Goldy is a likeable amateur detective, but I don t know anyone who refers to their significant other by his full name Almost every time Goldy thinks about Tom she uses Tom Schulz This really irritated me after a while The Episcopal Church also takes quite a hit here there doesn t seem to be a single competent clergyman in the group, and the women of the Altar Guild are either controlling shrews or scared little mice I thought too much time was spent on outlining the fight between the charismatics and the Old Guard factions Still, this was easy to get into and a pretty fast read Mott offered plenty of suspects, plot twists and recipes to keep me turning pages.

    Why do I keep forgetting how much I do not like these books The catering theme comes up and I wind up slogging through yet another Goldy caper and beating myself for forgetting again This one made me yell a lot Why does Goldy use his full name every time Tom Shultz is mentioned Drove me nuts And the whole battle between the traditionalists and the charismatics in the church I was an Episcopalian for many years, and I never heard any such battles going on in any church I attended There was absolutely nothing believable in the story, and I was bored to death Swearing off Goldy again, and hoping I remember it this time.

    Really 3.5 stars but I rounded upAnother wonderful book in what is turning out to be a solid series The Last Suppers takes us to Goldy and Tom s wedding, however a cryptic phone call comes from Tom and then he disappears Goldy must find out what s happened to her fiance and who murdered the priest before the killer kills Tom.I really like Goldy, she funny, but yet a very strong main character, having suffered abuse from her ex husband, then having to rebuild her life for her family, she s great The rest of the normal characters also appeared, Arch, Marla, Julian, and, of course, Tom Ms Davidson did a wonderful job of portraying Goldy and her friends and family in a state of shock after Tom is kidnapped, it s honestly what I d expect in this situation.The mystery was good, I figured it out only a few pages before the killer was revealed There wasn t as many clues as I d have liked, but it was still a good, solid mystery that I enjoyed.However, the book had a couple of drawbacks It seemed like the author dragged some explanations about Goldy s church and the priest s house out forever I found myself getting distracted by these lengthy descriptions But yet she did a wonderful job introducing some new characters from the church, I really hope we see Agatha, Zelda, and Lucille in future books.Overall a good mystery, very good characters, but some lengthy and at times boring descriptions gives The Last Suppers 3.5 5 stars I m looking forward to the next book

    4 in the Goldy Bear culinary mystery series set in a small Colorado town just outside of Denver This follows the series plot pattern Goldy finds herself involved with murder while operating her catering business and tries to solve the murder thereby involving herself in life threatening situations, ignoring advice from the police and friends, and just doing what she feels needs to be done whenever it occurs to her while on the way to solving the mystery.In this story, Goldy s wedding day is interrupted by the murder of the minister who was going to marry her and the kidnapping of the man she s going to marry This is personal for Goldy so her involvement is intense There is also plot involvement by the disfunctional members of Goldy s church congregation The positive side is that there is less obnoxious behavior by Goldy s son s and her over protection of him and fewer references to her former abusive husband.

    Personally, if the priest was killed the day of my wedding, I would have took it as a bad omen Goldy, as per usual, takes the chaos much better than could normally be expected in The Last Suppers She was also a dealing with a kidnapped fiance that she is determined to save even if she has no solid leads and no reason to believe she is anything other than a distraction to the investigation The Last Suppers is hectic and frantic than most Goldy Culinary Mysteries and the emotions shown in the wake of the chaos are barely recognizable At least the recipes, especially the Shrimp on Wheels and the Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake, sound delicious There were some religious terms that never heard and couldn t find the motivation to look up, which isn t a good sign It wasn t the greatest Goldy Culinary Mystery, but fans of the series will want to see for themselves what happened on Goldy and Tom s wedding day.

    Goldy and Tom are getting married I ve been listening to these books all out of order I just listen to whatever is on the shelf at the library when I m there so all the other books I ve read of hers are after Goldy and Tom are married It was fun to read an earlier book to see how they got there My biggest complaint in this book is how often Goldy referred to her fiance, her love, as Tom Shultz who talks about their fiance using their full name That was weird Maybe it wouldn t have been as bad if I read it but every time I heard her say, to her son or best friend no less, something like oh I just with that I knew where Tom Schultz was or sorry son, they haven t found Tom Shultz yet Weird That threw me off and kind of put a bad taste in my mouth.other than that, a satisfying story and good to listen to as I drive around the valley back and forth to work.
