EGG DROP DEAD is the newest book in the Cackleberry Club series. If you haven’t read this series before, I’d describe it as a small-town mystery that also has a lot of humor and heart.
Suzanne is the main heroine of this series but she does have some wonderful sidekicks in the form of her best friends and co-workers, Petra and Toni. When Suzanne heads to a neighboring farm to pick up some dairy, she finds Mike Mullen brutally murdered. Horrified, she calls it in but not before she does her own bit of investigating.
I really like Laura Childs’ style of writing mystery. The murders always happen very early in the book and I think that really sets the story into motion. Immediately we are looking for the murderer and seeking out suspects. She usually has three or four possible subjects, but I also like the twists she puts at the end of the books. It makes them a little less predictable and more fun.
This particular book also has a Halloween theme to it as well so at the time I’m reading it, it’s a great way to get me into the spooky spirit. So far, of all the cozy mysteries I’ve tried, I have to say that Laura Childs does my favorites. The murder aspect is always so engaging and thrilling but I think the real reason I keep coming back for more is because of the characters. I have really come to care about Suzanne and her friends, so it’s really no wonder why I keep looking for more stories with them in it!

Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
