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 caf . But the three women never expected sleuthing to be the special of the day...


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