In the debut of a delightful cozy mystery series, Sarah Fox introduces a charming new heroine who finds herself in a sticky situation: stacking pancakes, pouring coffee, and investigating murder.

Bonus content: includes original recipes inspired by the Flip Side Pancake House menu!

When Marley McKinney’s aging cousin, Jimmy, is hospitalized with pneumonia, she agrees to help run his pancake house while he recovers. With its rustic interior and syrupy scent, the Flip Side Pancake House is just as she pictured it—and the surly chef is a wizard with crêpes. Marley expects to spend a leisurely week or two in Wildwood Cove, the quaint, coastal community where she used to spend her summers, but then Cousin Jimmy is found murdered, sprawled on the rocks beneath a nearby cliff.

After she stumbles across evidence of stolen goods in Jimmy’s workshop, Marley is determined to find out what’s really going on in the not-so-quiet town of Wildwood Cove. With help from her childhood crush and her adopted cat, Flapjack, Marley sinks her teeth into the investigation. But if she’s not careful, she’s going to get burned by a killer who’s only interested in serving up trouble.


Marley thought she would visit Wildwood Cove again, just not under these circumstances.  Marley’s cousin Jimmy was in the hospital and she came to help him run his business, The Flip Side Pancake House.  Marley only imagined herself in the quaint town for a few weeks.  That was until she stumbled upon a murder and she just may be the next target.  With the help of her old crush Brett, could she find the killer before he or she found her?

I love cozy mysteries and this book was no exception.  The book kept me guessing and I enjoyed reading about the cute little town and all of its inhabitants.  When I was reading the book I pictured everything, the writing was very detailed and I could almost smell the sweet smell of crepes from the diner.  If the book wasn’t enough we get recipes in the back of the book.  I love a good recipe, as you may know from this blog.  I just may have to try the churro recipe in the back and review that too.  I highly recommend, a great read!!
