I categorize the Goldie mysteries as brain candy; fun to read, little substance. This was no exception, and I enjoyed it. Barbara Rosenblatt doesn't sound like Goldie to me, but she's always a great narrator, so no complaints.

This is the most disappointing book in the series. Goldie isn't just flaky, she's almost unrecognizable. Her usual spunk is almost completely missing, she allows herself to be bullied by both clients and strangers, and some of the things she does -- such as the hot tub scene in the spa -- are unlike the character that's been developed throughout the series.
Some of the other characters, including the bridezilla and her mother, are two dimensional and stereotyped.
The plot is rather dull. There's very little tension in its development and consequently very little satisfaction in the resolution.
I've read/listened to all the books in the series. This one seems like something that the author just tossed together. Maybe like so many of us she's feeling the bad economy. I'll think twice about buying another book in the series, and maybe the author should think twice before writing another.
