Great chick book
The story is a struggle of a battered woman and her attempt at getting a job to be on her own and taking care of her son. Excellent.

Review of "Catering to Nobody"
This is the first book in the Goldy catering series.
Goldy lives in Aspen Meadow Colorado and is a divorced mom of a young boy named Arch. Her birth name is Gertrude Bear and she uses her nick-name of Goldy because she has blond hair. She has a degree in psychology, but hasn?t found a way to pay the bills with it. Since she?s a good cook, she started a catering business.
This book opens with Goldy catering at a wake for a deceased teacher - one of her son?s in fact. During the meal, someone is poisoned and Goldy is a suspect. Unfortunately her business has been shut down, and so she is catering to nobody.
I enjoyed this book but thought the characters were all pretty intense. I suppose that is quite realistic given all that has happened to Goldy and her son. I also enjoyed the banter between Goldy and police detective Tom Shultz, who has taken a personal interest in Goldy.
Publishers Weekly, 1990-06-29 Davidson's debut is as embarrassing as a fallen souffle would be to her narrator, divorced culinary artist Goldy Korman of Goldilocks'ok?yep Catering in Aspen Meadows, Colo. Goldy, in business to support herself and her 11-year-old son, Arch, caters the gathering after the funeral of Arch's teacher, at which her former father-in-law, gynecologist Fritz Korman, drinks from a poisoned cup. While the police make sure that Goldy is now ``catering to nobody,'' she begins her own investigation to clear herself. As amorous detective Tom Schulz courts her, Goldy courts danger, seeking connections among the recovered Fritz, the teacher and nearly everyone else in the rustic town, including her teenage lodger, Patty Sue. The only rewards of the mystery are recipes for tasty dishes and the endearing Arch, who outwits the killer and is the sole credible character in the overstuffed cast. (Aug.)
