Suzanne Dietz, is a recent widow and a very sweet woman. Along with her two best friends, Toni and Petra they open up the Cackleberry Club. Which is a café, complete with a cute little book nook and a knitting corner, in the little town of Kindred, Tennessee. The café has excellent food from scrumptious scones to tasty teas, but what they are known for is their extraordinary egg dishes.
Kindred is a small town and the people there feel safe, until the day Bobby Waite, Suzanne’s attorney is found murdered, out behind the Cackleberry Club. Now that is just the beginning of the terrifying turmoil this quaint town has coming. Right smack dab in the middle of all this is Suzanne, who desperately wants to find out how Bobby’s murder, a scandal involving her late husband, Walter, and a young woman in need, are all tied together. Will Suzanne be able to find the common thread between them all and crack the case wide open? Or will she end up scrambled eggs, if the killer finds her hot on their trail?
