This series always pleases. Definitely in the "need something light, quick and fun" category.
This time Goldy is out of work since her drains weren't up to code, and the health inspector shuts her down until they are replaced. To help make ends meet, she agrees to host a cooking show on PBS that is filmed at the top of a ski resort near her. Of course, it doesn't take long until there is a suspicious death, and naturally Goldy was the last person to see him. This gives Goldy a vested interest in finding out what happened, and it's not long before she's being rather forcefully warned to back off. Does she?! Of course not. Love the recipes sprinkled throughout.
A quick, light read.
