More About the Author

Laura Childs is the New York Times bestselling author of the Tea Shop Mysteries, Scrapbook Mysteries, and Cackleberry Club Mysteries. In her previous life she was CEO/Creative Director of her own marketing firm and authored several screenplays. She is married to a professor of Chinese art history, loves to travel, rides horses, enjoys fund raising for various non-profits, and has two Chinese Shar-Pei dogs.

Laura specializes in cozy mysteries that have the pace of a thriller (a thrillzy!) Her three series are:

The Tea Shop Mysteries - set in the historic district of Charleston and featuring Theodosia Browning, owner of the Indigo Tea Shop. Theodosia is a savvy entrepreneur, and pet mom to service dog Earl Grey. She's also an intelligent, focused amateur sleuth who doesn't rely on coincidences or inept police work to solve crimes. This charming series is highly atmospheric and rife with the history and mystery that is Charleston.

The Scrapbooking Mysteries - a slightly edgier series that take place in New Orleans. The main character, Carmela, owns Memory Mine scrapbooking shop in the French Quarter and is forever getting into trouble with her friend, Ava, who owns the Juju Voodoo shop. New Orleans' spooky above-ground cemeteries, jazz clubs, bayous, and Mardi Gras madness make their presence known here!

The Cackleberry Club Mysteries - set in Kindred, a fictional town in the Midwest. In a rehabbed Spur station, Suzanne, Toni, and Petra, three semi-desperate, forty-plus women have launched the Cackleberry Club. Eggs are the morning specialty here and this cozy cafe even offers a book nook and yarn shop. Business is good but murder could lead to the cafe's undoing! This series offers recipes, knitting, cake decorating, and a dash of spirituality.

The second book in this series is a fairly good read...the characters are believable (for the most part) and the who dun it is intriguing....who is targeting employees of a local funeral home? There are several possibilities....The leading character Suzanne has one group of suspects in her sights, the local sheriff has another. Rural drug ring? Hostile corporate takeover by a national funeral home consortium?? Love triangle??? Key man insurance payoff for the remaining partner???? Ancy of these are possibilities. I won't insert a spoiler but will say the plot resolves in a particularly abrupt and totally unexpected manner. This is fine with me...I don't usually try and solve the mystery but generally have a pretty good idea and this took me totally by surprise....my problem is that there is no explanation as to motive. Believe me when I say that neither Suzanne nor the sheriff even had a clue. The problem I found (which prevented a 4 star rating? Way too many plot lines left unresolved and really a totally unexplained motive for murder.

I like Laura Childs "teashop" mysteries better, but the Cackleberry Club mysteries are fun, too. Keeps you guessing to the end.

Suzanne is the owner of a nice little place called Cackleberry Club. It is a mix of somewhere to eat, knit, read, and relax. She may have had her mystery trouble in the past, but she is so over that...or so she thought. Soon, Suzanne is finding herself in the middle of, yet another mystery. Only this time she is not a suspect, but a victim. She simply went to deliver a pie to Ozzie, the funeral director, then the next thing she knows she is staring at, what appears to be a dead Ozzie sprawled over his embalming table and then is being drugged with chloroform herself. Who would have killed Ozzie, such a sweet man? Who would have wanted to drug, but not kill Suzanne? Is there a killer on the loose that is going to regret not having offed Suzanne too that will then go after her again, but for good? Suzanne soon dusts off her mystery solving skills and gets into a bit more trouble along the way to finding out what is really going on in her small town.

I simply loved this book! It was just as entertaining as the first one in the series and the characters were even better in this book. The mysteries keep on appearing with every turn of the page in this book and make you so excited to read, you just can't put it down. Once again, Childs had me wondering what was really the story as far as the murder went. I was eager to turn the pages and read on and I was excited to learn more about not only the mystery, but the characters as I read on. The characters were so fantastic from the first book, and I am so glad that they kept that greatness in this book. I also was excited to see new characters and more growth in the old characters. The writing of the book was great too.

The two previous books in this series suggested the beginning of a beautiful friendship, but this one disappoints big time. I won't spoil the ending, but the identity of the murderer is completely unbelievable, probably because the character is barely mentioned at all during the story. Given the way the murders are committed the lack of background story on the murderer leaves you wondering "how could she (oops-gave that away)have killed two strong men in such strange ways. One murder needed specialized knowledge of a mortician's tools and the other involved a lynching.
I like the Tea Shop mysteries by this author, but I don't know if I'll buy another one in this series.

In the second Cackleberry Club mystery, Suzanne Dietz, one of the three owners of the eponymous cafe, has been drafted, with her partners, to work the dessert counter at the Library Committee's fund-raiser when she decides to take a break and deliver a pie purchased by the owner of the local funeral home. In the latter's workroom she finds that Ozzie Driesden won't be wanting his pie: he's become his own best customer. Not only that, but somebody, as Sheriff Doogie reveals, "tied Ozzie down before draining his blood." Presumably it's the same somebody who clapped a ragful of chloroform over Suzanne's face rather than have his identity discovered. Are vampires loose in the Midwestern town of Kindred, or is something less fantastic but equally perilous going on? Suzanne feels that the chloroform, and her status as the discoverer of the body, involves her in the case. But who would want to kill a funeral director? Was it his partner? Is there a connection to the national consortium that's been buying out local funeral homes? Is Carmen Copeland, the flamboyant and diversifying romance author who lives in nearby Jessup, somehow involved? It's been only a month since Suzanne and her partners last got sucked into a murder case, and they don't greet the prospect of another with joy, but in a small town like Kindred violent death is everybody's business.

With a delightful cast of characters both nice and nasty, and the continuing development of what may be a rivalry for Suzanne's hand (both Sheriff Doogie and a local doctor seem to be interested in her), plus a unique setting somewhere in the American Midwest and a foodie's fascination with cooking, this is a thoroughly enjoyable cozy that holds up the promise of its predecessor.
