[Book Review] PRIME CUT by Diane Mott Davidson

Fiction/Genre: Mystery

Michele Yellin reviews PRIME CUT by Diane Mott Davidson (Bantam Books, 1998):

Goldy Bear Schulz, the best caterer in Aspen Meadows, Colorado, is immersed in chaos at home and at work. Her husband, Tom, has been temporarily suspended from the police force. He's intent on remodeling their unfinished kitchen, which was abandoned by a thieving contractor. At the same time, Goldy is faced with an unscrupulous competitor for catering jobs. When the contractor for the remodeling job is later found dead, Goldy's old friend, the historical society's president, is accused of the murder. She works simultaneously to save him and her business and to investigate the theft of a collection of historical cookbooks. Toss in her teenage son's new interest in girls and her out-of-kilter kitchen and the mix produces a humorous and stirring story.

Twelve savory recipes are included. One can smell the coffee in this installment, so pour yourself a cup and savor!
