Review of Bedeviled Eggs

Bedeviled Eggs
A Cackleberry Club Mystery

Written by Laura Childs

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

I found this interesting covered book in the library, that I frequent. “Bedeviled Eggs” just struck me to be a strange name of a mystery novel. So I read the first chapter, took it home, and kept on reading.

Laura Childs makes it seem easy to write a story.  The prose just moves along smoothly. I, being an author, know it’s not an easy job to put together an intriguing novel this way. This book pleased me.

Suzanne, the protagonist, and her friends, Toni and Petra, run the Crackleberry Club breakfast and lunch restaurant in the small town of Kindred. Their place is the place to be, but not if your murdered going out the back door.

After this event, Suzanne takes it upon herself to help the Sheriff solve that, and additional crimes. In her snooping, as her boyfriend calls it, she becomes a valuable part of the crime solving. She comes close to paying the price for her involvement. She calls what she is doing investigating.

You call it potato, I call it pota’to. Whatever you call it. Suzanne in her own pleasant way has things happen to her. These happenstances make this novel an enjoyable read with little cruelty other than murder, which is a criminal act, as we all know.

Look into Laura Childs’ books if you like a good mystery:
