The Whole Enchilada is the 17th book in the Goldy Schulz Culinary Mystery Series. I recently ranted about authors who seem to become bored with their own characters and series. It’s refreshing that Ms. Davidson still seems to enjoy writing this series and has a lot of fun with Goldy.
For those of you that aren’t familiar with the series, Goldy Shulz is a caterer in Colorada who is married to a policeman. Each novel is based on a crime that has taken place in their town with some connection to Goldy or a friend of hers. Goldy loves to ‘help’ solve the mystery and trouble ensues.
Yes, it is pretty formulaic. And the twists and turns aren’t earth-shattering. But, boy, is it fun to read about her adventures. Her long-suffering and devoted husband works well as a secondary character along with her best friend (and ex-husband’s ex-wife?!?!?) Marla.
Is The Whole Enchilada going to change your life? Nope. However, I really liked the easy reading and relaxed nature of this installment. 3.5/5 stars and recommended as a good cozy mystery.
I won an ARC of The Whole Enchilada through the Goodreads Firstreads program and thank them!!
