Publisher Comments:

New York Times bestselling author Laura Childs presents the best way to start your day—with a hearty breakfast and a side of hard-boiled murder.

Suzanne, Toni, and Petra found a second life after losing their husbands—opening their own successful business, the Cackleberry Club cafè. But the three women never expected sleuthing to be the special of the day…

A KILLER HAS THE TOWN WALKING ON EGG SHELLS

When a snowmobile crashes into the woods behind the Cackleberry Club cafè, Suzanne finds her town’s most-hated banker beheaded by a wire staked in the snow. Now some of her best customers are prime suspects with a bushel of motives, and the murder investigation is snowballing. An elusive young runaway may be the Cackleberry Club’s only way to crack the case…provided Suzanne can keep her head long enough to track down the cold-blooded killer.

Synopsis:

Once again the Cackleberry Club owned by Suzanne, Petra, and Toni becomes the center of a murder investigation. During a blizzard they hear a loud crash and Suzanne goes out to find the town's most hated banker involved in a snowmobile crash and he's been beheaded. Some of their customers become prime suspects, so Suzanne, Petra, and Toni launch their own investigation. They not only have a murder investigation to run (along with Sheriff Doogie's help), but they have to keep the cafe running, participate in the winter festival, try to keep track of Toni's husbands most recent get-rich-quick scheme, solve the mystery of a runaway, but they have personal lives too.

I thought Junior's (Toni's husband) get-rich-quick scheme was hilarious. I also enjoyed Suzanne's relationship with the very hunky Sam. These women could easily be friend's of mine. I love the recipes in the back of the book. The Red Velvet Pancakes look delicious.

Suzanne, Toni and Petra found a second life after losing their husbands. They opened the Cackleberry Club, a cafe featuring yummy egg dishes. But they never thought sleuthing would come to be the special of the day.

A KILLER HAS THE TOWN WALKING ON EGGSHELLS.

A loud crash is heard behind the cafe. Suzanne rushes out in a blizzard to see what caused the commotion. She finds the town's most hated baker beheaded. He was riding his snowmobile and ran through a wire staked in the snow. When some the cafe's best customers become prime suspects and the police investigation starts snowballing off course, the ladies know it is time to track down the killer.



In this 4th installment of the Cackleberry Club mayhem blows right in before the end of chapter 1 along with a nice snowstorm.Suzanne tries to keep her own head as she tries to put the killer on ice. It is like a wonderful toboggan ride racing downhill.

I love these ladies. They are so relate-able and if I lived in Kindred they would definitely be good friends of mine. Great food, a book nook and a crafty corner, what more could we ask for in the perfect meeting place. They are also the requisite quirky supporting characters needed to round out the town's residents. Add to that a Fire and Ice Festival, that includes a parade, ice sculpting, an ice fishing contest, a treasure hunt and a murderer on the loose. All the ingredients of a marvelous mystery.

The thing that stands out to me in this series is the friendship shared by Suzanne, Petra, and Toni. Each dealing with their own battles but they are they for each other day in and day out. Raising each others spirits, lending an ear, sharing their thoughts, all while running a restaurant and solving a murder.

Toni's hot and cold relationship with Junior brings some humor to the story. His latest invention will have you giggling, but had my husband thinking it might not be a bad idea. :) Boys and their toys!

I have enjoyed every book in this series! They are at their best when read in order. I read the first 3 one right after the other back in 2010 and I was so happy when Stake & Eggs was released this month. I have missed by visits to the Cackleberry Club. I hope Laura takes us on another adventure with these ladies very soon!

Stake & Eggs is a scrumptious who-dun-it and the recipes included are tasty too. You must try the Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Pancakes.
