"Today's foremost practitioner of the culinary whodunit" ("Entertainment Weekly") returns with her hottest entree yet. "Cooking at the Top!, " Goldy's new TV show, is broadcast from one of Colorado's poshest ski areas. Unfortunately, she finds whipping up delicacies at 11,000 feet as perilous as skiing steep runs and finds herself searching the icy slopes to find a killer with desperate secrets to hide. This may be one time the tough-cookie caterer will not be able to schuss to safety!

I always enjoy her books and am always surprised at "who-done-it". The pace of the book is great and she gives the characters enough body to lead you to care about their lives. Of course the recipes are a nice surprise too. I have tried several of them, by the way,and I've really liked the ones I have tested. Her stories are not weighed down with a lot of cursing and "in your face" sex; she writes well enough that she doesn't need that to sell her books. I've bought almost all of her books and had enjoyed them all.
Publishers Weekly, 2000-02-21 Chef/amateur sleuth Goldy Schulz returns for a ninth outing in Davidson's popular culinary mystery series. Goldy's home-based catering business in the Colorado high country is temporarily suspended by drain problems, so she accepts a stint on a PBS cooking show before the Christmas holidays. After a meeting with Goldy, Doug Portman, her wealthy ex-boyfriend, is found dead on a back country ski run, with thousands of dollars flying from his pockets. Goldy discovers that an old acquaintance, Nate Bullock, had also been discovered there after an avalanche in almost the same spot three years earlier, and she herself is a victim of misadventure when her van is nudged over a cliff. Determined to find the killer lurking on the ski slopes, Goldy unearths motives aplenty, possibly among her culinary friends in a mountain restaurant. Davidson's creative recipes, scattered liberally throughout the narrative, add flavor to this spirited tale, which follows Goldy from one life-threatening escapade to the next. The characters are sometimes too good to be true (such as Goldy's husband, who's a county sheriff), but others have a refreshing edge, like pink-haired coffee-shop owner Cinda Caldwell. The ending is cookie-cutter predictable, but overall this is hearty fare for those who like their murder with a bit of nosh on the side. Agent, Sandra Dijkstra. (Mar.)
