Catering to Nobody: A well-received, bestselling mystery featuring Goldy Bear, a divorcee caterer with a taste for crime. Catering a wake for her son's favorite teacher was unpleasant enough for Goldy, without some rat putting poison in the coffee. And the ensuing investigation causes Goldy's kitchen to be shut down.

Dying For Chocolate: Determined to take control of her life, caterer and battered wife Goldy Bear accepts a job as a cook for the Aspen Meadow Country Club and soon finds herself enmeshed in a murder mystery involving   a handsome local shrink.

Cereal Murders: A wickedly delicious mystery--complete with recipes--from the bestselling author of Dying for Chocolate. The College Advisory Dinner seemed harmless enough to Aspen Meadow's premier caterer, Goldy Bear. But when she discovers the main course for the evening is murder, Goldy is hungry for answers.

Recipe sample from Cereal Murders:

Cereal Killer Cookies
2-1/4 cups old-fashioned oats
2 (6-oz) pkgs almond brickle chips (Bits of Brickle)
1-2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
2 large eggs
1 tbsp vanilla

Preheat the oven to 375 F. In a small bowl, mix the oats with the brickle chips. Sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together. In a food processor, mix the sugars until blended, then gradually add the butter. Continue to process until creamy and smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla and process until blended. Add the flour mixture and process just until combined. Pour this mixture over the oats and brickle chips and stir until well combined. Using a 2-tablespoon measure, measure out scoops of dough and place at least 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks. Makes 4 to 5 dozen.

Killer Pancakes: Her latest assignment, catering for Mignon Cosmetics, provides the answer, as Goldy heads for a showdown with a killer. Along the way, as she sleuths at the department store make-up counter, and battles with a violent animal rights group, she soon learns that cosmetics is definitely a cut-throat business!
