    It is Christmas season at Cackleberry Club Cafe. Most everyone in town was in the play Scrooge, when an actor was killed. Suzanne and everyone saw it happen and it was a ghost. Or at least someone dressed up as a ghost. Then Suzanne chases the ghost and almost gets killed herself. I ha...

    It is always great to visit Kindred and sink into a chair at the Cackleberry Club (although Toni and Junior annoy me no end, Suzanne, Petra, Sam and the animals more than make up for that), I really like the fact that the Cackleberry Club is always prepared to step up and do something ...

    "Eggs on Ice" is a cozy mystery. It's the eighth book in the series. You don't need to read the previous novels to understand this one, and this story didn't spoil the previous whodunits. So a murder is committed in front of a lot of witnesses, but the murderer is wearing a costume....

    I have been reading Laura Childs since I started reading cozy mysteries, which has been quite awhile. The Cackleberry Club is my favorite of her three series, and I think its the youngest. This is the 8th book in the series. It is also a holiday cozy so that makes me happy in so many ...

    This is a great little cozy. It's the eight in the series but the first I have read and I very easily slipped right into the characters and their town. The murder happened on page 6! Woo Hoo - that's how I like my cozies to start. Out of the gate, running full speed. The characters are...

    It pains me to rate Eggs On Ice so harshly, but the book was mediocre from the start. I could easily guess the culprit in the story, and the mystery element felt like Elephants Can Remember or some other bad book by Dame Christie. I think the author may have written the entire book ...

    The book was a lukewarm 4-star read for me until the end, where it lost an additional star. Suzanne, the heroine, fails to connect any dots, so there is no real suspense or buildup. At the climax she becomes exceedingly vacuous, so when the murderer nearly succeeds in killing her, she'...

    When a local is killed during the rehearsals for A Christmas Carol no one is really surprised. The dead man, Allen Sharpe, wasn't a well liked man and everyone believed his part as Scrooge was a perfect fit. The Ghost of Christmas Past killed him although the man who was playing the pa...

    3.5 rounded up to 4. It is Christmas season at Cackleberry Club Cafe. The town was getting ready for the Christmas Play, The Christmas Carol. During rehearsals, the scene with Scrooge and the ghost was playing out on stage in a very odd way. When the ghost exited, Scrooge was dead. Who...
