    Independent women rejoice!

    Laura Childs has a new series - the Cackleberry Club which is about 3 women - Suzanne a widow, Petra whose husband has Alzheimer's, and Toni in the midst of a divorce. Together they run a restaurant/book store/craft store. It's as if the author is combining the Tea Shop series with the Scrapbook series and adding a twist. The characters are entertaining and heartwarming, strong and independent - at least most of the time.

    One morning, Suzanne notices that her lawyer's truck is still the parking lot when she lets the dog out for a run. She goes over to see if everything is alright and finds him dead. That same day on her way home, she sees a truck run off he road. The following night, hr lawyer's office is burglarized. A crime spree seems to have hit the little town of Kindred and Sheriff Doogie seems to be in over his head. Before the week is over, Suzanne is also confronted with accusations of embezzlement against her late husband.

    Fueled by the need to clear her husband's name, Suzanne is embroiled in a state investigation surrounding the embezzlement and an abusive cult down the road. The solution was a little forced but entertaining.

    Not Bad, Somewhat Scrambled, With a Pinch of Spice

    I tried Laura Child's new series because I like her Scrapbooking series, and really love her Tea Shop mysteries series. The Cackleberry Club series sounded intriguing, although I had a hard time getting into the book. It seemed to start out slow. But it got better as I continued to read. The widow Suzanne has started a new restaurant with her two friends, when early one morning her lawyer is found shot dead in his car in back of the cafe. Suzanne needs to figure out who shot Bobby, along with resolving a scandal surrounding some dealings of her late husband Walter, while helping a young woman escape the clutches of a religious sect. There seemed to be a little too much in the plot to resolve it all in one little book, but Childs does tie up all the loose ends nicely, while dishing out egg tips and tasty-sounding recipes for Eggs in Purgatory, Bodacious Bacon Quiche and Toad in the Hole. The series has potential, and I will try the Cackleberry Club again. Pass the hot sauce, please.
