Winter has its grip on Kindred and the Cackleberry Club is focusing on the annual Fire and Ice Festival. That is until Suzanne finds the local banker beheaded behind the cafe. Can the Cackleberry Club solve the murder before they find themselves on ice?

I am finding myself getting hooked on this series. I can’t wait to see what Suzanne, Petra, and Toni are up to. The beheading of the local banker threw me for a loop as I believe it is the first time I’ve read about a beheading in a cozy. There was very little gore but it made for interesting reading.

Stake and Eggs was a fast-paced read that kept my interest. There was plenty of red-herrings to keep me guessing. Along the way there plenty of laughs when it comes to Toni’s husband Junior. As frustrating as he can be he brings some good laughs.

I highly recommend this series to fans of culinary cozy mysteries. Recipes are included.
