Fatally Flaky by Diane Mott Davidson

This is another great mystery in the Goldy Shultz series.  I love all the main characters in this series so it was like seeing old friends again to read another installment.  One of the things I like is that the previous stories don't need to be rehashed through each book.  Occasionally there is a wink and nod to a previous story but nothing to strenuous.  In this story, Goldy's godfather who has helped her out while starting up her catering business has moved across the street from her.  After that life takes a lot of twists and turns her friends gather round to help her solve another murder including Goldy's patient cop husband, Tom, and her capable culinary assistant, Julian Teller.
As the book begins, Colorado caterer Goldy Schulz doesn't have a moment to spare as she frantically tries to pull everything together for two upcoming wedding receptions, including last-minute venue and menu changes from a spoiled bridezilla.  When Harold Doc Finn, Aspen Meadow's beloved retired doctor, dies under mysterious circumstances on his way to the first wedding ceremony, Goldy wonders if it was an accident or murder. When her godfather and Doc Finn's good friend, Jack Carmichael, is also attacked, it's obvious that Goldy will have to venture out of the kitchen and put her detecting skills to use once again. Stir in a slimy spa owner, rumors of a malpractice suit.
