Synopsis (from  Suzanne, Toni, and Petra found a second life after losing their husbands—opening their own successful business, the Cackleberry Club cafè. But the three women never expected sleuthing to be the special of the day…


When a snowmobile crashes into the woods behind the Cackleberry Club cafè, 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.


My thoughts:  What can I say other than every person who reads this blog knows that I love, love my cozies – and the Cackleberry Club is one of my favorite series.  I was waiting for quite a while for this latest book to be released as I guess that the author was probably busy working on her Tea Mystery series.  Alas, it was finally released – yay!  I was able to pick up right where I left off with my friends Suzanne, Toni, and Petra (is it weird to call the characters in your books friends, oh well call me weird then 🙂 ) inside of their cozy restaurant The Cackleberry Club Cafe.

I enjoyed this book and enjoy this series exactly for what it is – a wonderful, nice, simple, cozy read!  This is one of the cozy series that I read that every time I pick up I want to somehow jump in the  book – I want to taste what is on their menu, I want to visit the Book Nook, and I want to look around the Knitting Corner!  Why oh why can’t I be there 🙂

If you like cozies or are looking for a nice, simple, relaxing book, I highly recommend this series!  I hope I don’t have to wait so long for #5.

And remember,

Books Are Life,
