Occasionally a narrator is perfectly matched to a story. While this is probably more difficult in a first-person narrative, it has been achieved with Cherry Jones's performance. Davidson's latest in the Goldy Schulz series features the caterer and amateur sleuth acting as TV chef while her business is closed for repairs. In order to help pay for the repairs, she agrees to sell a set of antique skis to a former boyfriend, but he is killed on the ski run. Naturally, Goldy becomes involved, while cooking, surviving a car crash, and facing danger at the hands of the killer. Jones captures just the right mix of humor, ironic wit, and warmth that are so much a part of Goldy's personality and Davison's stories. Her voice is rich, full, and capable of on-the-mark renditions of the other characters. Regrettably, recipes for the goodies Goldy mixes up are not included.
