Goldy Schulz's frustration with her wacky, often annoying clients goes over the top at times in this light and funny,
if slowly paced, novel. Can people really be that dumb? Initially, the character
caricatures provide good comic relief, but as the story continues, they lose their humorous impact.
Goldy is in the middle of planning and catering the wedding of a particularly troublesome client when a retired physician is murdered. Something is up with the soon-to-be bride and her groom, and Goldy has to figure out the connection between the victim and her clients. Soon she's in the sights of a killer who will silence anyone who tries to find the truth. (MORROW, May, 336 pp., $25.99)
