Crêpe Expectations (Pancake House Mystery) by Sarah Fox

Hello my cozy friends,

Today I am reviewing "Crêpe Expectations" is the fifth book in Sarah Fox’s Pancake House Mystery series.  I had not read the previous four but enjoyed this one so much that I went and bought them for my TBR pile.
Print Length: 276 pages
Publisher: Lyrical Underground (May 28, 2019)
Genre: Cozy Mystery


 
When a murder case from the past heats up again, it’s up to Marley McKinney to sort through a tall stack of suspects in the latest Pancake House Mystery . . . 

Although it’s a soggy start to spring in Wildwood Cove, the weather clears up just in time for the town to host an amateur chef competition. Marley McKinney, owner of the Flip Side pancake house, already signed up to volunteer, and chef Ivan Kaminski is one of the judges. But when Marley visits her landscaper boyfriend Brett at the site of the Victorian mansion that’s being restored as the Wildwood Inn, she discovers something else pushing up daisies: human remains.  

The skeleton on the riverbank washed out by the early-spring floodwaters belonged to  
eighteen-year-old Demetra Kozani, who vanished a decade earlier. While the cold case is reopened, Marley must step in when some of the cook-off contestants fall suspiciously ill. Stuck in a syrupy mess of sabotage and blackmail, it falls to Marley to stop a killer from crêping up on another victim

I loved the setting of Wildwood Cove and can’t wait to visit it again. The protagonist Marley is a likable main character and Chloe makes a great sidekick. The characters are well-developed.  The mystery had just enough suspects, red herrings, and twists and turns to keep you guessing till the end.  I found it to be a fun fast read.

Includes pancake recipes right from The Flip Side menu!

I enjoyed this book and recommend to my friends.
