A murder in the local hospital is raising everyone's temperature in the latest book in the New York Times bestselling Cackleberry Club series.
Suzanne Dietz, co-owner of the Cackleberry Club Café, is visiting her fiancé, Dr. Sam Hazelet, when a masked gunman bursts into the emergency room. He shoots two people and would probably have done more damage had Suzanne not brained him with a thermos full of chili. Still, the gunman manages to escape.
Now the ladies of the Cackleberry Club are determined to find the killer before he finds them.
In Childs's lightweight ninth Cackleberry Club mystery (after 2018's Eggs on Ice), caf owner Suzanne Dietz is making a routine trip to the hospital in the Midwestern town of Kindred to deliver a thermos of chili to her physician fianc , Sam Hazelet, when a gunman shoots up the place. By the time it's over, a security guard is dead, a desk clerk is wounded, and the killer has escaped with a duffel bag full of drugs. Kindred's finest, Sheriff Ray Doogie and Deputy Eddie Driscoll, arrive soon, and Ray is glad to hear that Suzanne is a witness, though the lawmen are puzzled at how the gunman vanished so quickly. When a second drug theft happens, it doesn't take long for Suzanne to jump right into the investigation with no objections from the sheriff. That the usual humor is in short supply may disappoint longtime fans, but some tasty-sounding recipes will ease the pain. Those who don't mind a darker edge to their cozies will be satisfied.
