New York Times bestselling author Laura Childs presents the best way to start your day - with a hearty breakfast and a side of hard-boiled murder.
Suzanne, Toni, and Petra found a second life after losing their husbands-opening their own successful business, the Cackleberry Club caf . But the three women never expected sleuthing to be the special of the day . . .
A killer has the town walking on eggshells.

When a snowmobile crashes into the woods behind the Cackleberry Club caf , Suzanne finds her town's most-hated banker beheaded by a wire staked in the snow. Now some of her best customers are prime suspects with a bushel of motives, and the murder investigation is snowballing. An elusive young runaway may be the Cackleberry Club's only way to crack the case . . . provided Suzanne can keep her head long enough to track down the cold-blooded killer.

Looking forward to reading the other books in the Cackleberry Club mystery series. Stake & Eggs being the only one that I've read so far.

While I liked the story, I thought the plot was a little bit slow, but still a good read. I enjoyed the commodore amongst the three women and small town feel of the adjoining businesses. The personalities of the supporting characters were varied and gave good contrast and the crazy addition of a car-cooker was a hoot. I enjoyed the book and found it to be an easy and delightful read. The recipes in the back sound delicious.
