In Laura Childs’s New York Times bestselling mystery series, Suzanne, Petra, and Toni—co-owners of the Cackleberry Club café—are back to track down another bad egg…
Maintaining good personal relationships with their suppliers is one of the secrets of the Cackleberry Club café’s success, so Suzanne doesn’t mind going out to Mike Mullen’s dairy farm to pick up some wheels of cheese. She’s looking forward to a nice visit with the mild-mannered farmer before heading back to their hectic kitchen.
But when she arrives, Mike’s nowhere to be found. The moaning of his cows leads her to look in the barn, where she discovers a bloodcurdling sight—the farmer’s dead body. Apparently not everyone was as fond of Mike Mullen as the Cackleberry Club.
Churning with grief and outrage, Suzanne, Petra, and Toni vow to find the farmer’s murderer—but as they get closer to the truth, the desperate killer gets whipped into a frenzy and plans to put the squeeze on them…
My Comments: I have had several Laura Childs’ books in my TBR pile for a while now, but never got around to reading them. That has ENDED. this was a great book – very engaging and well written. I love the characters, and the twists and turns. I like the writing, it feels “full” and rich. This is also a Halloween-type book and captures that well. I love the main character, Suzanne, her friends who work in the cafe, and her boyfriend, Sam. I highly recommend this book to fans of cozies.
I received this book free from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion, which I have given.
