Book #48: Sweet Revenge

Although this book was on sale, I regret buying it.

Espresso catering junkie, Goldy Schulz is the protagonist and boy, did that bickering meddling pushy self-centered boring woman drove me up a wall! I couldnโ€™t stand this lead character and wanted bad things to happen to her. I figured the author โ€“ who is supposed to be a best-seller โ€“ got bored of writing this story, salad tossed things here and there and rushed it to her editor.

Goldy is a caterer who sometimes helps with the crime solving, but she acts needy, immature and instead of being a mother, she acts like sheโ€™s her sonโ€™s sister. Sometimes I wondered who had the badge: she who caters, or her equally boring husband who refers to her as โ€˜Miss G.โ€™ They have no chemistry, that Goldy and Tom.

Something was missing from this book. It was a drag, a bore and although the author tried to make Grace or Sandee look suspicious during the story, I knew all along that it was Patricia behind the scenes. As for Goldy, I was satisfied when Sandee cut her hair off โ€“ she should have scalped her. I was also pleased when she rolled down the hill and when Patricia shoved her into the snow.

This is where the Goldy train stops. I know that this was supposed to be a culinary thriller, but it ended up being a culinary disaster. I couldnโ€™t stand the characters and couldnโ€™t wait to finish this bore. I eventually read reviews to see what others were saying and I was happy that I was not alone in calling this a stiff bore.

I hope the missing ingredient is found along the way for this just was not tasty.

August 25th: Secret of success

 :

What would it take for you to consider yourself a โ€œsuccessfulย bloggerโ€? Is that something you strive for?

Honestly, I am tired of answering almost the same identical blogging questions.

Anyways, I consider myself a successful blogger in terms of uploading content on a daily basis. I love blogging. I don’t see the need to compete with other bloggers for most likes, comments or followers as I am thankful for the readers who stop by. โค
