    • ReviewDiane Mott Davidson's "Gold Bear Culinary Mystery" series were one of the original cozy series I started reading, and once I started, I ran through the first ten as quickly as I could. By then, I was caught up and had to wait for the successive ones to be released. Double Shot, her 12th book in the series, was the first one I had to wait for and I was restless.Goldy and her antics, and friends, were a nice release from the reality going on around me at the time. And when her ex-husband, Dr [...]


    • Psssh. Desperation drove me to try this series; sometimes I am looking for a light, cuddle-up-by-the-fire type of book that doesn't require the intensive attention of, say, The Pentagon Papers. Well, I found light and fluffy, all right, but this book is light enough for its very premise to blow away with the first breeze. What was I thinking? What kind of air-head (besides me) buys a novel in which the police cannot possibly solve the crime, but hey, the caterer can whip up great food, drop a re [...]


    • Okay, this is my last one. Yes, I'm finally done with these books. Her ex-husband is back? Why? Couldn't he have been killed in prison in the shower while being a bitch? I guess that doesn't happen in these books. Goldy is now being targeted for death, again. Seriously, how can she not be dead yet? I would have killed her. Don't even have to pay me to do it!


    • This book made me angry. I know that's not an emotion you are supposed to feel when you read one of the Goldie Bear mysteries. This particular story pushed me over the edge.It begins as Goldie's ABUSIVE ex-husband is released from jail because the governor commuted his sentence ostensibly for saving the life of a guard in prison. And he moves back into Aspen Meadows and get visitation with their son. Now Goldie is married to a Sheriff's Deputy, so you would think they might have a little pull wi [...]


    • I have had enough of this. Goldy is all about Goldy and as far as I'm concerned, I would so move out of Aspen Meadows, maybe even the state of Colorado! She puts everyone she comes into contact with in danger, she has NO regard for her family and friends let alone the police.I would not like to live where the Police Dept. gives out important info to a caterer yet kick her husband (A cop) off cases. She seems to feel that she is above the law and only SHE can solve the case.I lost all my pity for [...]


    • I am glad this was a quick, easy read, more or less, because it was not one of my favorites. SO many questions, whodunits, red herrings, as well as seemingly endless times that Goldy is breathless, in pain, dizzy, or worse, none of which stops her from interfering in yet another investigation. I did not enjoy her at all in this story. I believe I already have the next book in the series, and I will read it, but if the lead character does not become more tolerable and likable in the next story, I [...]


    • I am a big fan of the Goldy Bear catering mysteries, although I must confess it's been a while since I've read one, and she's published two books since I last read her work! In this offering, Goldy is the prime suspect in the murder of her ex-husband, the Jerk, and I for one was cheering, as I was a bit tired of the Jerk showing up in every single book and being such a pain in the rear end.I thoroughly enjoyed Double Shot, although there was a LOT of death in it, including the death of the town' [...]


    • This book read like a soap opera. I didn't appreciate the tone at all. I didn't realize the book was part of series until after I started reading and the frequent--and totally unexplained--references to a back-story made that evident. The characterization seemed a little weak, many of the personalities exaggerated--or sterotyped. I didn't feel like there was a real conclusion in the book; it just . . . ended. There are recipes in the back of the book, but not being the kind of person who loves t [...]


    • My first thought when I started reading this book was that Goldy should be severely handicapped by now with all the head injuries she's had. But, I was pleasantly surprised with the twist and turns this title took and that it dug a bit deeper than the previous book. I was also happy to see she actually did something about Arch's bad behavior. Not too fluffy and definitely the best so far.


    • I always enjoy these books but they put pounds on my bottom! I've tried several of the recipes and loved them.


    • Last week it was a religious murder mystery and this week it's a cooking murder mystery. What the hell is going on in publishing?


    • I really enjoyed Chopping Spree by the same author but was disappointed by Catering to Nobody which I read years ago. Unfortunately, the first half of this book reminds me of the later not the former. The first half of this book, especially the opening chapters have Goldy Schultz, caterer and amateur detective making a lot of stupid mistakes for plot reasons. The book starts with her heading to her new catering building the Roundhouse for a catering event, as she's walking from her van to the do [...]


    • This cozy mystery had me thinking of Jessica Fletcher and Cabot Cove, Maine. Goldy Shulz like Jessica seems to attract trouble and watch out anyone who is around either of them you may be next. The murder rate in Cabot Cove and Aspen Meadow must be astronomical. They are always in the midst of things and they work it all out in the end. Goldy has a family though which plays rather heavily in what happens. Her storyline moves forward where Jessica's is always the same. Goldy was in fine form in D [...]


    • DOUBLE SHOT DIANE MOTT DAVIDSONThis is a story with one dead man, too many suspects with too many motives. That’s what happens when one person invokes anger in pretty much everyone he knows. Goldy is the first suspect as it was her gun but as the story unfolds we as readers find out there were loads of people gunning for him.Mixed in with murder and mayhem was a lot of cooking. I gain ten pounds reading her books but I can’t resist. I found a who and why done it compelling as it keeps me on [...]


    • Best-selling author Diane Mott Davidson is the diva of the culinary cozy, and here, she returns with everybody's favorite sleuth, Goldy. This time, Goldy's just arrived at her new catering center to prepare for a special luncheon when she's attacked and knocked unconscious. When Goldy comes to, she suspects her abusive ex-husband Korman was somehow involved—until later that day when he's found dead! Keeps you on the edge of your seat. You won't know till the last minute who dunit. 5 stars.


    • Having read this, the twelveth in the Goldy Bear Culinary Mystery series, many years ago, I re-read it for my book club. At the end I remembered why I stopped reading the series with this one. Diane Mott Davidson seemed to run out of enthusiasm for her writing. Descriptions were unimaginative. The story seemed to move forward awkwardly just to get to the end. How many times can one person get knocked unconscious in one book?


    • Picked up this series again because reading a quickie perks up my reading interest. This cozy mystery about Goldy the caterer was especially fun with The Jerk & the family drama!






    • Double Shot was published in 2004. Around that time frame I read a few of the books in this series and apparently drifted away as "shinier toys" in the form of new authors, etc. appeared around me. However, since I was facing a 12 hour drive/both directions this past weekend, I wanted something interesting and somewhat lightweight to listen to. Ms. Davidson and her Goldy Bear series was just the thing. The story was intricate enough to hold our interest (while not lulling into a trance as some b [...]


    • Goldy is out doing her catering thing when she gets attacked and her first gig at the roundhouse is sabotaged that's the start of a crazy day. Later there is an argument with "the Jerk" her ex and then she finds his dead body. Of course the cops think she did it so she's off to solve the mystery to protect her and her son Arch.I hadn't read one of this series in a long time. It was nice to reconnect with the characters. Didn't see this one coming the one I thought it was nope, not her. Anyway If [...]


    • This was a GREAT mystery! Given the fact that something happens that will make anyone who has read this series very happy, it was probably one of my favorites of the series. I really liked the realistic reactions people had, and the detailed notes made of Goldy's feelings as well. Tom seems to be coming out of his funk, Arch, although upset, seems to be on his better behavior. I did not guess answer to this puzzle at all. Recommended!


    • Since finding Diane Mott Davidson's Goldy Bear Culinary Mystery series, I have become hooked! I am thoroughly entertained by Goldy, Tom, Arch and Marla! This book, Double Shot, is really well written. I had no idea who the killer was! There were many possible suspects as well as many more interesting things happening at Goldy's catering events. I am ready to read Goldy's next adventure!


    • I love this series and have read them all up to this one. In this installment, Goldy's ex-husband, the Jerk, is murdered and, at first, Goldy is the prime suspect. Davidson does a great job making the story funny, sad, and everything in between. I was sorry to hear recently that she will be ending the series. I still have 4 to read so will enjoy the series while I can.


    • well, it got me through a 12 hour flight and a 6 hour train ride. I would have enjoyed it more of the author hadn't decided to totally vilify the ex by making him a pedophile rapist. I guess the ex arc of the series has finally come to an end, but in a cheap way. I'm glad to leave this book behind in my hotel room.


    • I always feel like a don't drink enough espresso after reading one of Goldy Bear books. You don't need an espresso to read this book, I stayed up late so I could finish it. Quite fun as long as you are not the victim.


    • The books in this series have all had similar ratings. The majority of them are so-so in terms of the storyline and the suspense factor. But I am greatly relieved that Goldy's ex-husband is finally out of the picture. He didn't deserve to die, but now he won't be around anymore.


    • A fun and mysterious read. Goldy, the main character runs a catering business and combines that with personal detective work. She always seems to get herself in over her head. Recipes are included in the book and I plan to use a few of them.
