Introducing the Cackleberry Club Mysteries…Now Laura Childs is cracking a whole new case of murder in a brand new series with recipes included, as usual.
Suzanne, Toni, and Petra lose their husbands but find independence when they open the Cackleberry Club. The main character owns a restaurant that also serves afternoon tea, hosts cake baking competitions, houses a book store w/ book discussions, and also a yarn shop, complete with knitting classes.
Then their cozy cafe becomes the scene of a crime when a lawyer dies with a secret on his lips and egg on his face. What this all has to do with a religious cult and Suzanne?s past could put her own life on the line.
