    I had some trouble getting into this book It was like the author took every single cozy theme she could think of and threw them all together the main character owns a restaurant that also serves afternoon tea, hosts cake baking competitions, houses a book store w book discussions, and also a yarn shop, complete with knitting classes She also saves battered women and extends the restaurant to a neighboring church It was just too much and I came away knowing about all these different business objectives but not too much about the main character, her life story, her house, etc I ll read the next book in the series because I usually like this author, but so far I m a much bigger fan of the Tea Shop series than of the Cackleberry Club.

    Hmm I find it very jarring when a writer who s previous books I have read and enjoyed all of the sudden gets the urge to use foul language I understand about each series needing to be different, but I don t understand why they have to go in that particular direction Especially when the other books with NO language have worked so well for them Oh well That said, I did like this book After the first initial shock of language and to be honest, its NOT like its F words , I really started to get into the characters And then the swearing was very minimal And I liked it enough that I will at least read the second book Suzanne, Petra and Toni are great characters their one flaw is that they love the words sh t and a h le They have loved and lived life and are ready to start again after some heartache in all three of their lives The mystery was good I was rather stunned at the end Laura Childs IS the queen of the red herring So we will give the next one a try and see how that one goes.

    I enjoy Laura Childs tea shop mysteries and have found her scrapbooking ones to be just OK But this new series based in the Midwest looks like it might be the best one so far I thought the main characters had a little depth to them then the other ones, but it still is in the genre of a light mystery with very little gore Plus the description of all the food made me extremely hungry The only thing I was disappointed in was that there weren t recipes listed for all the egg dishes mentioned in the story

  4. says:

    Not bad The food descriptions were as delicious as the tea shop series I liked the setting touching all of book, cafe and craft cozies I wasn t too sure about the main character, though.

    Laura Childs other two series are not among my favorites, but this series opener promises better things Three friends one widowed, one almost divorced, the third with a husband in a nursing home start a small town restaurant called the Cackleberry Club When the widow, Suzanne, finds her lawyer s dead body behind the Club, they become enmeshed in a far reaching mystery Suzanne s husband was a physician and member of some of the town planning boards now he s retroactively accused of taking bribes and Suzanne is told that she may have to pay 2,000,000 in restitution There are attempts on her life, but they may be repayment for her interest in a young woman who is trying to flee a secretive local cult Small town Minnesota setting.

    A good read for a long airplane car trip if all else that they were selling in the gift shop was James Patterson books I was really puzzled by the egg metaphors the author is using for this series It s about a small diner bookshop yarn store tea room and the women who run the.whatever the hell it is I found the entire concept to be just weird and unfocused Sure, the place serves eggs, but also books, scones and knitting needles For crying out loud, pick a setting I also found the shift in tone here from her other books to be odd Not that I care about vulgarity in fact, I rather enjoy it sometimes but it felt very forced.

    Mom and I enjoyed this read very much It was a book we had wanted to read for a little while, and it also was read at the last book in our March Mystery Madness Challenge of 2019 What a fun challenge and what an awesome read We even love the book so much that we made one of the recipes in the back The Blond Brownies Over all a great book and we look forward to returning to Crackleberry Club.

    I loved the idea of a group of adult women friends running a diner bookstore yarn store, but my mind kept wandering during this book It felt a bit all over the place with cults, the prison industrial complex, and appreciated, but page consuming descriptions of egg dishes.

  9. says:

    I didn t like this story I was expecting this to be like the author s other series, Tea Shop Mysteries This was too slow and too vulgar I did like the diner and yarn shop and book shop combination That was the best part of this book I also didn t like the characters or mystery.

    Sometimes women lose their husbands and need shoulders to lean on They may not even all lose their husbands in the same way, but there is something about a good friend or two that makes things easier to deal with Suzanne, Toni, and Petra are just that great friends in sort of similar situations looking for good support in each other They open the Cackleberry Club, a little cafe that also has a book nook and knitting area It goes over great and they just love what they are doing One day though the great times come to an abrupt end when Suzanne finds her lawyer dead in his truck behind her Club Not just dead eithermurdered Soon Suzanne is delving in to put on her amateur sleuth hat and figure things out, after all it greatly affects her As she digs deeper she learns that there are many secrets in her life and small town that she never had a clue about Soon her late husband s character is put into question and Suzanne is about to loose things very important to her if she can t find answers Will she find the answers at all If she does, will they be answers that will help clear things up for the good or the bad in her life Will she survive her digging into the past Lawyers have many enemies, but what would cause one to kill him This was the first book I have ever read written by Childs I must say I was extremely happy I picked it up This book was full of mystery and drama There was a bit of background in the first chapter or two, but it was well written background, not drawn out or too much, as in some books I have read It gave the background needed to make the rest of the book make sense to the reader, but it didn t give the whole back story of every character in a drawn out fashion that makes readers want to quit reading I loved the characters too Suzanne, Toni, and Petra are one funny and fun loving group of ladies They don t take gruff from anyone and they don t see anything as too big of a challenge They all come from rough pasts and I think it makes them realistic to the readers, I know it did for me I felt like I got to know them throughout the book and became friends with them I also just loved the adorable old dog Baxter and how he really seemed to get his owner Suzanne I could just see his reaction to things The mystery and drama of it all was simply amazing It was chocked full of twist and turns and I felt like I was on a roller coaster at an amusement park Every time I thought, okgot it, there would be a sudden drop I never saw coming that I was thrown down It was a mystery that came right down to the wire before I finally figured it all out I found the whole book very exciting and I just loved the writing style Childs definitely has a new fan I can t recommend this book enough and I also can t wait to read on in the next book in this series to see where the ladies go now and what happens A must read 5 5 Stars
