Review: Eggs on Ice by: Laura Childs


Title: Eggs on Ice
Author: Laura Childs
Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime
Series: A Cackleberry Club #8
Format: Hardcover
Source: GEBT

Description:

The Christmas season at the Cackleberry Club café is marred by murder in the latest book in the New York Times bestselling series.

Some say that casting crusty attorney Allen Sharpe as Scrooge in the Kindred Players production of "A Christmas Carol" is just playing to type. He's not the most beloved man in town. In fact, you'd have a dickens of a time finding someone who liked him. Still it's a shock when the Ghost of Christmas Past stabs him during the first rehearsal. Suzanne, co-owner of the Cackleberry Club café, Kindred's favorite combination diner, craft store and bookshop, chases the murderer out of the building but loses him in the alley. 

As the days pass the list of suspects grows longer. Is it the disgruntled partner? The former secretary whom Sharpe sexually harrassed? Or is it fellow owner of the Cackleberry Club, Toni's almost ex-husband, Junior? The women of the Cackleberry Club are determined to find the killer before he can add another victim to his Christmas list.

My Thoughts:

This book follows Suzanne and her friends as they get ready for the upcoming play A Christmas Carol and the holiday season.  What no one counted on was the death of Scrooge for real.  Who would want to kill him and why?

The deeper Suzanne digs the more prospects of murderers are on the horizon.  Then when someone targets Junior's mobile home Suzanne really wonders what is going on in this town she loves so much!  Suzanne has her work cut out for her will she solve it or become scrambled herself?

I love this series it's such fun to go back to Cackleberry Club and see what everyone is up to.  Then you also get to see and watch as Suzanne solves the crime or if the murderer can actually stump her.  Such a fabulous blast to read about!
