Eggs in a Casket (Cackleberry Club, Bk 5)
Eggs in a Casket - Cackleberry Club, Bk 5 Author:Laura Childs The ladies of the Cackleberry Club are always ready to serve -- whether they're cooking up breakfast or sniffing out a bad egg. — While Petra handles the breakfast rush at the Cackleberry Club, the café's other two owners, Suzanne and Toni, head to Memorial Cemetery to help prepare for its 150th anniversary celebration. But ... more »as they search the winding paths for the historical society tent, they discover something else out of place: the body of ex-prison warden Lester Drummond lying facedown in someone else's freshly dug grave.
In the small town of Kindred, everyone knows everyone, and Lester was no exception. Suzanne knew him as the creepy guy who made unwanted advances on her friend Missy Langston. But now it appears the man was hiding a few secrets…and at least one of them was worth killing for.
As the case cracks open, there are plenty of suspects to consider -- from recent parolees to Missy herself, who Suzanne and Toni saw speeding away just before they found the body. Now, with a cemetery celebration in the offing, and the local authorities in over their heads, it's up to the Cackleberry Club to unscramble the clues and clear their friend's name.
I dearly love to read about these three ladies and their adventures. Such fun. They are such diverse individuals, but they all work in this series. Some things are very funny, others are sad and most just plain fun. I didn't guess who the culprit was until it was revealed, but that's okay it kept me guessing. Good mystery.
