The Cereal Murders

By Diane Mott Davidson

Thanks to her recent adventures in Dying for Chocolate, Chef Goldy, the premier caterer of Aspen Meadow, Colorado, is no stranger to violence-or sudden death. But it’s the last thing she expects to encounter when she agrees to cater at the exclusive Elk Park Preparatory School.

Sure, the competition among students is fierce, and some of the parents do act as if they’d kill to get their children into a big-name college, but as Goldy ladles out sumptuous Early Decision Dumplings and sublime Ivy League Ice Cream Pie, the only deadly things she comes up against are snobbery and boredom … until she steps outside.

There, yards from her van and half buried in the fresh October snow, is the battered body of the school valedictorian, Keith Andrews. “Saint Andrews” his classmates dubbed Keith for his holier-than-thou attitude, but was that reason enough for murder?

Goldy investigates, sifting through information that leads her to believe that Keith had learned enough to blow the lid off some very unscholarly secrets. And then, as her search rattles one skeleton too many, Goldy discovers a crucial fact: a little knowledge about a killer can be a dangerous thing.

The Cereal Murders mixes irresistible suspense with delicious humor to create a five-star treat. Diane Mott Davidson offers up Goldy’s original recipes for such delectable dishes as heavenly Sugar Plum Cake, luscious Red ‘n’ White Cookies, and savory Nachos Schulz. The Cereal Murders is a mystery with a gourmet twist-and a cookbook that you won’t be able to resist.

Diane Mott Davidson (born March 22, 1949) is an American author of mystery novels that use the theme of food, an idea she got from Robert B. Parker. Several recipes are included in each book, and each novel title is a play on a food or drink word. Mott Davidson was nominated for both the 1991 Anthony Award and the 1990 Agatha Award for Catering to Nobody in the “Best First Novel” category. Additionally, her story Cold Turkey won the 1993 Anthony Award for “Best Short-story”.
