"In Laura Childs's New York Times bestselling mystery series, Suzanne, Petra, and Toni--co-owners of the Cackleberry Club Café are equally good at serving up breakfast and serving up justice. This time they turn up the heat on a deadly firebug... As Suzanne is getting her hair colored at Root 66, she's stunned to witness the County Services office next door suddenly go up in flames. Concerned neighbors throng the streets, and the fire department does their best. Unfortunately, their best isn't enough to save longtime civil service worker--and friend to the Cackleberry Club--Hannah Venable. Soon enough, it's discovered that an accelerant was used to fan the flames. Someone set the fire on purpose--was Hannah the intended victim? Suzanne, Petra, and Toni vow to smoke out the culprit. Unfortunately, the list of suspects is as varied as the Cackleberry Club's menu. When Suzanne finds a possible connection between the fire and the nearby Prairie Star Casino, she comes to realize that the arsonist wanted something very big and bad kept secret. And if the ladies aren't careful, they may be the ones gambling with their lives.."--… (mais)

Scorched Eggs by Laura Childs is the sixth book in the Cackleberry Club series and one that I enjoyed a lot.

When the series first came out, I was thrilled with it and really enjoyed the first three books. Then, the fourth and fifth books left me a bit flat. This installment feels much more like the first few in the series and I'm happy for it.

The plot line in this one is well thought out and it moved along at a good pace. It's also one of the few books in this series where I did not have a clue about who the villain was until they were revealed.

I'm renewed in my enthusiasm for this series and hope another installment comes soon! ( )

Very good--another rollicking mystery. ( )

A fire at the county services building leaves a woman dead. Suzanne smelled the fire just minutes before it exploded. When fire investigators find it to be arson, Suzanne decides to assist Sheriff Doogie investigate. She finds several useful clues which endanger her and lead to the killer. While I gave this one 3 stars, it really falls a little short of that. I seem to enjoy the series a little less with each installment. (I actually read books 7 and 8 before this one.) ( )

I love this series. I love the women in this series, with all their personal frailties and flaws. In creating this series, I'm not sure she intended to, but it seems she has hit upon many of the facets of a woman's life stages (through the varying characters)- it's an interesting concept to see them grow, live and share amongst themselves- and solve murders!

I'll be honest I had no idea whodunnit, so I felt -- well I can't really say, cause that would lead you to know who actually did do it, if you're going to read it... I did enjoy this visit to Kindred, and a closer look at a slice of this small town's life. ( )

Scorched Eggs is the sixth book in the A Cackleberry Club Mystery series.

Another enjoyable visit with residents of Kindred and fun times at the Cackleberry Diner.

You might say it was a hot time in the old town, as someone torched the County Services Building. Just as Suzanne was leaving the Root 66 hair salon she notices the smell of something burning and within seconds a loud explosion rips through the building. Annie Wolfson and her daughter were rescued, but Hannah Venable, secretary to the county agent, perished in the fire. After receiving a telephone tip, Sheriff Doogie arrests Ricky Wilcox and stolen blasting caps are found in Wilcox's car.

Suzanne doesn't feel that he is the guilty party and begins to look around for a more likely person. Annie Wolfson is estranged from her husband, possibly he wanted revenge for leaving him. Also Hannah and Jack Venable were having marital problems and when Suzanne finds that Jack has sold his wife's wedding ring to the pawn shop, he also goes on the suspect list, Darrel Fuhrman, a firefighter who had been relieved of duty, was at the fire scene and maybe this was his way of getting back at the department. Now to learn who is guilty before they burn her.

It's always a treat to sit at the counter and enjoy the banter of Suzanne, Toni and Petra and to enjoy the delicious food they prepare. And Doogie, he may tell Suzanne to stay out police business, but he knows deep down that she can learn things that people won't confide with to him.

Delicious sounding recipes are also included in the book.

Looking forward to the next book in the Cackleberry Club series. ( )
