The Last Suppers
It should be the happiest day of Goldy the caterer's life.... After years of struggling to put the disaster of her first marriage behind her, she has finally found the courage to love again. And soon she'll be walking down the aisle of St. Luke's Episcopal Church to wed big-bodied, big-hearted Tom Schulz, a county homicide detective who shares Goldy's passions for preparing food and solving crimes. But moments after Goldy's put the finishing touches on the scrumptious reception feast, and just before the ceremony is to begin, she receives an urgent phone call from the groom himself. The wedding is off and the reason is murder....It seems that Tom had stopped by the Reverend Theodore Olson's house to pick him up for the ceremony, only to find the rector shot and dying. And there's worse to come. By the time Tom's fellow officers arrive at the crime scene, they find a corpse, signs of a violent struggle, and Tom's notebook containing a cryptic message, but no Tom. Has the groom been abducted by the killer? Or has he gotten cold feet and walked out of Goldy's life? Goldy sadly contemplates sending her Portobello Mushrooms Stuffed with Grilled Chicken, Pesto, and Sun-Dried Tomatoes; her Fusilli in Parmesan Cream Sauce; and the other reception goodies to the local soup kitchen. The Dark Chocolate Wedding Cake with White Peppermint Frosting, however, is put on ice with a prayer that it can be thawed out soon, as Goldy sets out to discover who killed Father Olson and what happened to her missing fiance.With Tom's life on the line, Goldy desperately needs to decipher the hastily scribbled notes he left by Father Olson's body. Now the timer is ticking, and Goldy's future depends on uncovering the churchgoer whose murderous path may have begun on a road paved with good intentions but will surely lead straight to hell.
