    One thought on “Eggs in a Casket”

    1. Foodies and fans of quaint cozies will probably find this an eggs-C- lent little peach. (Yeah, that was cheesy, I know, but I couldn't help it; I'm a dork). It wasn't the bees knees for me, at this juncture in my life. However, I used to be quite the fan of cozies back when my children were young and I only had snatches of time here and there to read. Now I prefer a novel or mystery with a bit more depth and substance And I also prefer a Diane Mott Davidson mystery to this one. Still though - a [...]

Of course, Suzanne and Toni take it upon themselves to find out who the killer is. This book was very well written and flowed really well. Laura Childs did a really good job with this cozy, it kept me guessing till the very end, which is what I really like in a cozy. I was truly surprised at the outcome. I ca [...]

    6. What was to be a quick trip to the Memorial Cemetery to deliver flowers for the site’s upcoming 150th anniversary celebration, turned into a find that was unexpected and dangerous.Suzanne and Toni had left their other partner, Petra, handling the breakfast rush at their café, the Cackleberry Club, to run the errand to the cemetery.

The blend of their three personalities gives the reader so many different ways to identify with their story and the blazing dialogue between them is always a treat to read.Dear Suzanne and Toni come across a very fresh corpse while delivering flowers that will be used in a [...]

    8. “Eggs In A Casket” is the fifth book in Laura Childs’ “Cackleberry Club Mystery” series, and it is a lively, action-filled novel that is just a pleasure to read. The characters, many of them reoccurring throughout the series, are quirky and interesting, and the mystery to be solved is intriguing and attention-grabbing. While this is the fifth book in this ongoing series, it is quite easy to pick up and become fast acquainted with the storyline and the people who populate the tale. This [...]

    9. I really enjoyed this book. I'll start with what I wasn't crazy about (which is very little)I know Missy becomes a prime suspect but I really started to find her annoying. Toni is a character but sometimes she's a little over the top for my taste, but that's just me. Now onto what I liked (a much longer list)on the whole I love the characters and the way they interact. I enjoy the Cackleberry Club with how they get involved with community events, and the everyday running of the restaurant. I rea [...]

    10. I really enjoy this series and the mystery in the book did not disappoint. I generally enjoy the three main ladies in this series, but for some reason in this book I wanted to just hit Toni upside the head more than usual for putting up with her "estranged" husband. You are not estranged if you continue to do constant events with said husband, even if you aren't living together. It kept on distracting me for the actual storyline. Some of the other minor storylines were quite good and I hope she [...]

    11. This book is 5th in a series about 3 widows that open a cafe. Two of them are off to celebrate a 150th anniversary of a cemetery. While looking around they find the body of ex-prison warden. The town police are over their heads and one of their friends is being acused of the crime, so they have to find out who the killer is.

    12. Love Laura Childs. whether she is writing her Tea shop mysteries, her scrapbooking mysteries or the Cackleberry club mysteries, they are always fun. Just the right amount of murder and mayhem without being too serious or gory.

    13. Laura Childs' Eggs in A Casket is another fun read in her Cackleberry Club Mystery series. Great characters and adventures along with a little love interest make for quick and enjoyable reading.

    14. I love this series!!! Ms. Childs brings the Cackleberry Club and its characters to life in a way that you get lost in the mystery!!A truly gifted writer. A retired prison warden face down in a newly dug grave - not his - let the games begin!!!

    15. Another great read in the series and lives of Petra, Toni, and Suzanne. I honestly had a pretty good idea of who the killer was this time but I wasn't able to really nail down why. As always it's great to catch up with the ladies and check in on the relationship between Suzanne and Sam. And the more I see of the sherif the better I like him. And the longer this series goes on the more people in the area you get to know as characters and the fuller the story and plot of all of the books tend to g [...]

    16. Hit page 160 of 300 and realized that the story and characters were just not that interesting. I didn't buy into the protagonist behaviors and how the sheriff was always willing to tell her everything about the case. meh.

    17. Another nice addition to this cozy mystery series. Laura Childs writes three very different series, but all with strong female characters, and I love them all. This series features three friends, middle aged, and single. They have started a restaurant together, serving breakfast and lunch, with eggs as the main ingredient. And they do whatever they can think of to diversify. There is a Book Nook, a Knitting Corner, they sell fresh produce that is home made by different people. And they manage to [...]

    21. This is the 5th book in the Cackleberry Club Mystery. This is not a series that has to be read in order, so if you get a chance to read one of them, I would urge you to do so.
