I finally finished Crunch Time by Diane Mott Davidson Her Goldy Bear Culinary Mystery Series is one I've enjoyed for many years However the uality of these books has been on a rollercoaster ride Some of them are pretty good Some of them are not This was the worst I've read There were way too many characters too many storylines and too many absolutely ridiculous events Goldy's TSTL moments were out of control No one thought is was weird having one of the main murder suspects stay at the primary investigator's house Goldy's son almost kills a guy is holding a bloody weapon and Goldy pretty much ignores him and starts baking Hee hee There are no transitions here between the murder plot and the cooking One moment Goldy is bloody and unconscious the next she's whipping up a coffee cake The best part of this book The recipes at the end Natty and I are going to make the Crunch Time Cookies this weekGrade C or less cringe
