In Aspen Meadow, Colorado, everyone, especially her buddies at Amour Anonymous (AA), who knew Holly Ingleby is shocked by her death while walked to her car just after a seventeenth birthday party thrown for her teenage son Drew and her friend Goldy Schulz’s teenager Arch. Goldy feels terrible as she fears her AA friend died from the food her Goldilocks Catering provided for the event at the country club.

Though the official cause of death was medication overdose, Goldy feels obligated to investigate. She begins her inquiry by reviewing the notes she took years ago at their AA encounters. At the same time, someone stabs a person who somewhat looks like Goldy and soon afterward an attacker assults the caterer. Not one to back down, Goldy searches for a ruthless killer before she becomes the next victim.

The latest Goldy Schulz culinary amateur sleuth (see Crunch Time) is an exciting whodunit as the past comes back to haunt the present. Fast-paced, readers will relish this engaging whodunit that contains a wonderful coda surprise denoting what The Whole Enchilada is to Goldy; and also the usual complement of recipes.
