EGG DROP DEAD by Laura Childs
This 7th book in the Cackleberry Club Mysteries series finds Suzanne discovering the dead body of her cheese supplier instead of rounds of cheddar cheese. When the amateur sleuths get too close to discovering the scheme to defraud the farmers, things get pretty dicey for Suzanne, Petra and Toni.
Clever plotting served with a helping of friendship and rounded out with enticing recipes make this a cozy mystery worthy of an afternoon with a book.
4 of 5 stars ( )

Suzanne has errands to run for the Cackleberry Club and they include picking up some cheese rounds from the Mullen Farm. When she arrives she hears the cows mournfully mooing and realizes that they haven't been milked. She knows that Mike Mullen must be in need of help to have let this happen so she goes searching for him. However, Mike is beyond help and so Suzanne is caught up in yet another murder.

Sam, Suzanne's fiancé, and Sheriff Doogie wish that Suzanne would just concentrate on her business but that's not part of Suzanne's makeup -

I love the characters, some are very down-to-earth and others really wacky, but all in all, I enjoyed the visit to the Cackleberry Club and the aromas I could imagine cioming from the recipes in the back. ( )

It's nearing Halloween in Kindred. Suzanne decides to run out to Mike Mullen's to pick up another round or two of cheese. That's when she discovers Mike didn't milk the cows and stumbles across his butchered body. She calls Sheriff Doogie. Suzanne spotted someone in the distance, possibly the murderer or a witness. Plenty of witnesses. Suzanne gets herself in dangerous situations by becoming involved in the investigation. Toni and Petra, of course, are in the action. Toni, although separated from Junior, remains married to him. Suzanne and Sam plan to marry in the spring. The reader, however, continually asks how Suzanne who went to purchase cheese from Mike Mullen can get by another week without finding a new local source for it. In fact, we never learn the solution to that problem. Toni annoys me. This installment, while enjoyable, does not measure up to some of the earlier installments in the series. ( )

Its hard to believe but this is the first book I've read by this author. I don't know how I've missed reading her books, but I will be going back to read every book she has written. I was very impressed with the description of the Crackleberry Club Cafe. The food they served was described so well I could smell the turkey bacon frying and the yummy muffins that filled the cafe with a delicious aroma. I loved the idea of a cafe that serves farm to table foods. It will draws attention to the hard working farmers and gives them a boost for their products.

Suzanne has stopped at the farm that Mike Mullins owns to pick up fresh cheese for her cafe. To her surprise she can't find him anywhere. She starts looking around for Mike and stumbles onto a bloody scene. The author did a great job of describing the horrific murder scene with graphic details . The question Suzanne can't understand is who would kill such a nice man with such force that it leaves a scene right out of a horror movie?

There are quite a few characters in the book with outlandish personalities. I'm still not sure how I feel about her friend Toni. She really is a flirty thing and really has no morals it seems. Toni's soon to be ex-husband is nothing to write home about. I did love the banter between them and found them to suit each other well. There are plenty of laughs in the book as Suzanne and her friends decide they need to solve the murder. With Suzanne preoccupied with the murder, her fiancé Sam is starting to wonder if they will ever be able to talk about their upcoming wedding. I did like Sam a lot and thought his character was very smart and could easily calm Suzanne down.

There are quite a few subjects the author touched on that bring some serious moments to the story. I'm glad she tackled them with no sugar coating . The topics are what happens in the world today and I'm glad she put them in the story to add attention to them. They all tie together to make for a good mystery with suspects that lead to a very dramatic ending . Overall the book has some great action, fun characters and a well thought out plot. Don't miss the recipes at the end which look so good I will have to try a few out myself.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Great Escapes Book Tour . The review is my opinion and I was not compensated for it. ( )

Egg Drop Dead by Laura Childs is the seventh book in Cackleberry Club Mystery series. Suzanne is stopping by Cloverdale Farm to get some wheels of cheese from Mike Mullens. She calls out and no one responds. The cows are bellowing and have obviously not been milked. Suzanne has a bad feeling, but she keeps looking. Suzanne finds Mike Mullens in the cheese house brutally murdered. Suzanne quickly calls 911 for assistance and requests that Sheriff Roy Doogie be contacted. Who would want to kill mild-mannered Mike? Suzanne knows she should be working on her wedding plans, but she cannot help but investigate Mike’s murder (she’s nosy). But Suzanne’s investigating has someone upset. Suzanne and Toni are chased through the Haunted Forest. Suzanne is just starting to relax at home when she hears someone in her backyard. Suzanne has the dogs attack, but the culprit gets away. The guilty party has an injured leg thanks to her dogs. Suzanne invites all her suspects to the Cackleberry Club’s Halloween Party (she wants to flush out the killer). Suzanne will need to keep her wits about her to catch this slippery suspect.

I have not had the opportunity to read A Cackleberry Club Mystery prior to Egg Drop Dead. I am a fan of Laura Childs’ Tea Shop Mysteries and A Scrapbooking Mystery series. I found, though, Egg Drop Dead to be very different from her other works. Egg Drop Dead is well-written (as are all of Laura Childs books) and easy to read. The book has a good flow or pace (for the most part). Suzanne is the primary character while her partners, Petra and Toni are in the background (especially poor Petra). Toni is known as a “hoochie mamma” and married to Junior (though they live apart and are said to be getting a divorce). Junior is what many people would refer to as a red neck imbecile (or country bumpkin whose I.Q. is less than his income). I, personally, would prefer if Toni and Junior were not a part of the book (it would elevate the story immensely). Suzanne is extremely pushy and determined (it was off-putting). She scared a teenager with Asperger’s Syndrome (she eventually apologizes). I give Egg Drop Dead 3 out of 5 stars. The reader receives few clues regarding the murder. You must pay close attention if you want to figure out the identity of the guilty party (mystery buffs should be able to solve it before you are halfway through the book). One thing I did not understand is why Suzanne (and Toni) ran from the man in the Haunted Forest. It was supposed to be scary, so why run screaming for your car! I think many people will enjoy the humor in the novel, but it was not for me. There is an excerpt for Pekoe Most Poison at the end of the book (which I cannot wait to read). ( )
