LET'S GET COZY! STAKE AND EGGS: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
STAKE & EGGS
A Cackleberry Club Mystery
BY LAURA CHILDS
ABOUT THE BOOK:
New York Times bestselling author Laura Childs presents the best way to start your day—with a hearty breakfast and a side of hard-boiled murder.
Suzanne, Toni, and Petra found a second life after losing their husbands—opening their own successful business, the Cackleberry Club café. But the three women never expected sleuthing to be the special of the day...

A KILLER HAS THE TOWN WALKING ON EGG SHELLS

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

Laura Childs is the bestselling author of the Tea Shop Mystery series, the Scrapbook Mystery series and the Cackleberry Club Mystery series.

I know this is going to sound gruesome, but that wire beheading thing is something I first read about in a Truman Capote piece (I think in Music for Chameleons) and has fascinated me ever since. I think it's interesting that it's being put to use in a cozy and I love to see how it plays out.
