Suzanne, Toni, and Petra, having all lost their husbands, have combined their talents and opened the Cackleberry Club café - a wise move on their parts. The café has become a thriving business. The pluses in their venture outweigh their minuses.

Unfortunately, a minus crashes into their lives in the form of a decapitated body in a snowmobile! And to make matters worse, some of their best customers become chief suspects in what is definitely a case of murder.

The three women decide to do some sleuthing on their own, having done so in three previous books in this delightful series. I've read them all and can attest that they're well worth the time spent with these enterprising ladies. And I didn't guess whodunit this time. Can't win 'em all!

Some wonderful café recipes are a welcome bonus at the back of the book – Lemon Cornbread, and Dirty Fried Chicken to name just two. These are fun books.
