Title: For Whom The Bread Rolls (A Pancake House Mystery)
Author: Sarah Fox
Stars: 4 out of 5
An excellent cozy mystery with a minimum of violence. The main character, who came into her business and home, by way of an inheritance has grit and determination. She is not easily swayed and follows thru on her instincts to a successful conclusion. I believe there is also a budding romance in the works. It will be interesting to follow this series to see how it progresses. I liked the story and was a little surprised as to who the murderer turned out to be in the end.
I have given this book a four star rating.
I received an ARC from Netgalley for my unbiased review.
Tourist season’s in full swing in the small seaside town of Wildwood Cove, and Marley McKinney couldn’t be happier. Since taking over the Flip Side restaurant, she’s made a few close friends, adopted a cat named Flapjack, and started dating her childhood crush. The only cloud on the horizon is local nuisance Ida Winkler, who blames Marley for landing her nephew in prison. Trying to get a rise out of Marley, Ida’s been making crank calls and even vandalizing the pancake house.
The police can’t do much about the pranks, so Marley sets out to bury the hatchet once and for all. But someone’s beat her to it—in the most shocking way possible. After stumbling across Ida’s dead body, Marley’s suddenly the number-one suspect in her murder. Clearing her good name is going to be a tall order, but Marley’s not about to let Ida keep ruining her life—especially from beyond the grave.
