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.
The Crêpes of Wrath by Sarah Fox is the first book in the new Pancake House Mystery series. The seaside town setting was delightful and had me wanting to pack up and head to Wildwood Cove for a visit. Marley heads to Wildwood Cove to help her older cousin Jimmy out with his Flip Side Pancake House restaurant as he recovers from pneumonia. After Jimmy’s suspicious death, Marley vows to find out what happened to her beloved cousin.
This was a great start to a cozy mystery series. It had many elements that I love in a cozy:
- Enjoyable main character
- Fun, sometimes quirky, supporting characters
- A hint of romance
- A great mystery!
Marley quickly became one of my favorite cozy characters. I just really liked her from the start and I had a great time reading her story. This sweet cozy grabbed me from the start, and the mystery had me second guessing myself. If you are looking for a fun new series, be sure to check out The Crêpes of Wrath by Sarah Fox. Tasty treats and a satisfying mystery make this book one to add to the top of your TBR pile.
