Caterer Goldy Schulz is back in another culinary mystery adventure sure to please Davidson fans. While driving to her despicable ex-husband's house to ensure that their son won't come home to an empty house, Goldy finds more than she bargained for when her ex's glamorous new girlfriend Suz Craig shows up dead in a ditch and her ex is arrested for the murder. Urged on by her 14-year-old son who begs her to prove his dad is innocent, Goldy, with the help of cop and husband Tom Schulz, wades into the mystery with both hands. Secrets, lies and the inner workings of the HMO Suz Craig worked for (which appears more interested in dollars than patient care) lead Goldy into deadly danger while uncovering the murderer's identity.
Of course Goldy whips up more delicious treats during the solving of the crime -- all recipes are provided. Very entertaining with a lovable sleuth and lots of humor, The Grilling Season is a tasty treat you'll want to devour in one sitting.
