Publisher's Summary

Caterer and sleuth extraordinaire Goldy Schulz jumps from the frying pan into the fire as she tries to solve a puzzling murder that is much too close to home, in this latest entry in the New York Times best-selling series from "today's foremost practitioner of the culinary whodunit" (Entertainment Weekly).
Goldy Schulz knows her food is to die for, but she never expects one of her best friends to actually keel over when she's leaving a birthday party Goldy has catered. At first, everyone assumes that all the fun and excitement of the party, not to mention the rich fare, did her in. But what looks like a coronary turns out to be a generous serving of cold-blooded murder. And the clever culprit is just getting cooking. When a colleague - a woman who resembles Goldy - is stabbed, and Goldy is attacked outside her house, it becomes clear that the popular caterer is the main course on a killer menu. With time running out, Goldy must roll up her sleeves, sharpen her knives, and make a meal out of a devious murderer, before that killer can serve her up cold.

I've read all the books in this series, and was looking forward to this new release. What a huge disappointment. I've tried twice, and just can't finish it; it just doesn't hold my interest.

The plot is thin, and presented in a scatter-gun manner. The details are uninteresting: the whodunnit doesn't beg to be solved.

The characters are similarly uninteresting. Goldy, always a scatter brain, is no longer charmingly so; she's just irritatingly stupid.

The performance is similarly annoying. The sotto voce so often used is just boring.

Goldy has been a favorite for light reading since I picked up the first audiobook. This was to be a swing book between heavier reading, but I couldn't force myself to finish it. A light book should hold the reader's attention.

BEST book in the entire series.

What made the experience of listening to The Whole Enchilada: A Novel of Suspense the most enjoyable?

Great story. The book kept my attention from the beginning to the end. Love this series but the author really went the extra mile with this one.
I enjoyed the "puzzle" within the story, the review of history for the main character and the way it was all tied up in the end.
BY THE WAY....SPOILERS......SO HAPPY with how this book ended. I for one have been waiting for this to happen in the storyline for a long time. Great way to bring it about.
Very touching.....I laughed....then I cried (with joy) for Goldie.

What other book might you compare The Whole Enchilada: A Novel of Suspense to and why?

Perhaps this is comparable to the book (can't remember the title of the specific book in the series) in which Goldie's first husband the JeRK was murdered.

Which character – as performed by Barbara Rosenblat – was your favorite?

Toss up between Marla and Goldie. Love em both.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The end. SPOILERS.....the end was such a wonderful surprise and sweet gift the author gave us. Such a great way to end the story.

Any additional comments?

Read it or listen to it especially if you have read prior books in the series. This is the BEST one thus far. Thank you Diane Mott-Davidson for this one!
