Eggs Benedict Arnold (Cackleberry Club, #2)Eggs Benedict Arnold by Laura Childs
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Eggs Benedict Arnold by Laura Childs is the second book in the Cackleberry Club mystery series, featuring Suzanne, Petra & Toni. In this installment, Suzanne discovers the body of a local funeral director. After being attacked with chloroform, Suzanne finds that Ozzie was murdered. With her friend Missy a suspect, Suzanne reluctantly agrees to have a look around.

This book was just about as busy as the first, with several intersecting plot points, but it was much easier to follow along. I was familiar with the characters and the settings. There were some new characters introduced and some familiar characters were better developed. I enjoyed this book a bit more than the first. I honestly had no idea who the killer was until very close to the end of the book…then a few little hints helped me figure out who the killer was.

I’m not a huge fan of the cursing in this book or this series. I just don’t feel it enhances the story in any way so it doesn’t seem necessary. It isn’t excessive, though I’m still surprised when I come across an expletive in a cozy.

I checked this book out of the library to read for fun and I am looking forward to continuing the series. I’ve already requested the next book, Bedeviled Eggs.
