Good 11/11 morning to you! Happy Veterans Day, with a huge thanks going out to the troops that keep the good ol’ USA a safe place to live.

So, I seem to get on “kicks” with certain authors (if you follow the blog, you’re probably saying ‘No kidding’ right about now) and I’m on a Diane Mott Davidson kick at present. I think I like her because I am the worst cook ever, and since her main character is a caterer, Mott’s books are like gazing into a wonderland of all things foreign and scrumptuous. I actually made the Tex Mex casserole from her book that I finished last week (Crunch Time) and it was edible! So she inspires me from a writing and culinary standpoint, and that’s a good thing. Don’t get me wrong, there are ingredients in some of her recipe’s that I’ve never ever heard of, don’t know what they are, wouldn’t know how/where to buy them, and frankly can’t pronounce. But again–did I mention I managed the Tex Mex casserole?! Baby steps…

I digress.

Honestly, I could write “ditto” to last week’s blog and it would suffice for this week’s writeup. Fatally Flaky was a good read (love the title) and found Goldy up to her ears with catering and murder; unfortunately, one of the murders in this week’s book hit really close to home for her. 😦 So there was that element in the book, along with some good sleuthing and some mouth-watering eats.

To sum, it was an easy read and I liked it. I preferred Crunch Time to Fatally Flaky, if I was made to pick. But I highly doubt that anyone will hold me at gunpoint and force me to give them my preference. They were both good, and I’ve got another Goldy Schulz story on tap for this week. After all, there are sixteen of them in the series. But after this one, I promise I’ll get on a new “kick” for those of you who aren’t into the whole culinary scene. It really is intimidating in my book, no pun intended…’Til next week, happy reading! 🙂
