Review: Dark Tort

Dark Tort Book Review
3+ of 5 stars to Dark Tort, the 13th book in the “Goldy Bear Schultz Culinary” cozy mystery series, written in 2006 by Diane Mott Davidson. Although I love this series, I would have purchased this book no matter what… the cover is delicious. I love chocolate and had a thing for cooking torts right around the time this book was released. The desserts came out great, but I didn’t use her recipe, as I have one of my own! Anyway… back to the book review… the clever title play in this one is amusing, given it’s all about a law firm. And a character named Dusty… and someone “bites” the “dust.” OK, two bad puns in a row, I better wrap this one up. A good mystery for the series. Fun characters. Typical book in the series. Worth a read. I know we’re coming up on the end of the series, which is a good thing… as 15 should be the max. The setting is the best part of this one, as Goldy gets to travel all around town, more than usual, and learns a lot about the law!

For those new to me or my reviews… here’s the scoop: I read A LOT. I write A LOT. And now I blog A LOT. First the book review goes on Goodreads, and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at, where you’ll also find TV & Film reviews, the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge and lots of blogging about places I’ve visited all over the world. And you can find all my social media profiles to get the details on the who/what/when/where and my pictures. Leave a comment and let me know what you think. Vote in the poll and ratings. Thanks for stopping by.

    • There are 17 in total. Goldy, the main character, dates for a few books, then re-marries. Some family members come in and out, a few are killed… so if you don’t want to be confused with those types of changes, you’d need to read in order. If you just want to sample, read the first one and you’ll know if you like the style. They are fairly consistent. I like the series and most are average to good. None are really poor or bad reads. Just simple plots.
