Review – The Whole Enchilada by Diane Mott Davidson

the whole enchiladaThe 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!!
