I really enjoyed this book. The part where the leader of the cult is attacked by Suzanne, Toni and Petra as well as Junior made me laugh out loud.
Read two of the other Cackleberry Club mysteries which are good as well but this one is my favourite so far. Looking forward to reading the rest in this series.

This series if very similar to the "tea mystery" series right down to the "detailed" account of the teas and food served, there are 3 main characters, an intelligent dog, boyfriend isn't important, and the type of policeman relationship.

Entertaining enough but the characters were not as well drawn as in her other series & it was a bit too sentimental for my taste.

I liked this new series of Laura Childs, but it wasn't as catchy as the "Tea Series" or the "Scrapbooking Series"
