Egg Drop Dead (Cackleberry Club #7) by Laura Childs
Egg Drop Dead - Laura Childs

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I've been growing more fond of books like these lately, I was very happy be the end.

I was thrilled that it wasn't so easily guessed who the guilty party was as well.

I hate when I can guess too easily who it is from the beginning.

I also liked that despite not having read the previous books in the series that it didn't seem necessary to follow and understand whats going on or who everyone is.

Egg Drop Dead is fun, its exciting, and makes a great read for any time of the year for a fun who's who murder mystery.

The Jasmine Moon Murder (A Tea Shop Mystery) - Laura Childs

None of the people in this series behave like people!! I'm officially dropping this, even though I own several more of the books. I can't put myself through any more of this nonsense.

A Fun Cozy Mystery
Crepe Factor (A Scrapbooking Mystery) - Terrie Farley Moran,Laura Childs

This cozy mystery starts out in New Orleans in the Winter Market with Carmela Bertrand and her friend Ava. While there a man, dies right in front of the ladies with a big fork sticking out of his neck. The man, Martin Lash is a food critic for an online website called Glutton for Punishment. Martin is a nasty little man who writes reviews of restaurants that do not put them in the best light. In fact, his reviews hurt the restaurants to the point of no having business and the future of these restaurants are pretty bleak. 

 

So who is the killer? There are numerous suspects, including a friend and previous beau of Carmela's, Quigg Brevard. Martin had written a scathing review of Quigg's restaurant. Carmela is asked by Quigg to use her investigative skills and find out who the killer is. Against the wishes of the man she is currently seeing, Detective Edgar Babcock, she does just that. She also puts herself in extreme danger as she starts digging around. Another man is murdered, is it the same killer or just a coincidence that this man is killed with a butcher knife? Who is the killer and what are his/her motives? Can Carmela stay out of danger?

 

Cozy mysteries are fun to read. I love a good crime thriller but once in a while reading a book where the violence and sex are toned down a bit is nice. Plus the fact that these type of stories are usually in a small community where everyone virtually knows everyone else and the main characters have some type of small business. This is the first book I have read by Laura Childs and I really enjoyed it. The descriptions of this New Orleans community makes the reader feel like they are right there. I found that the business that Carmela has, a scrapbooking store, to be quite interesting. I have never done any scrapbooking but it sounds like a fun hobby. I digress but again, I did enjoy the book, well written with a touch of humor. I may just read more by this author!

Shades of Earl Grey - Laura Childs

This series came highly recommended to me, and I scooped up a few from a used bookstore. How I regret that purchase! I cannot stand this series. It's positively grating. All the characters and their endeavors are utterly perfect, to the point that nothing feels real. There are no flaws, nothing ever goes wrong, and that makes these stories impossible to relate to... and not very fun to read. On top of all that, the mysteries themselves are dull and poorly plotted. They're not gripping or intriguing or spook-inducing in any way.

 

UGH! I'm so disappointed! I love a good cozy mystery, but these take cozy all the way through the roof to full-on irritating. Sigh. I might skim through the copies I purchased, but I might send them straight back to the bookstore. Bummer!
