Laura Childs' other two series are not among my favorites, but this series opener promises better things. Three friends--one widowed, one almost divorced, the third with a husband in a nursing home--start a small-town restaurant called the Cackleberry Club. When the widow, Suzanne, finds her lawyer's dead body behind the Club, they become enmeshed in a far-reaching mystery. Suzanne's husband was a physician and member of some of the town planning boards; now he's retroactively accused of taking bribes and Suzanne is told that she may have to pay $2,000,000 in restitution. There are attempts on her life, but they may be repayment for her interest in a young woman who is trying to flee a secretive local cult. Small-town Minnesota setting.
