Marley McKinney setting into life in the small town of Wildwood Cove. She has inherited the Flip Side restaurant, which is flourishing during the tourist season. There’s one small problem, although it’s not really that small. One of the locals, Ida Winkler, is pulling all sorts of pranks on her from making crank calls to writing graffiti outside her restaurant. Unfortunately, there’s nothing anyone can do since there is evidence of Ida’s guilt.

Things turn even more problematic for Marley when s

Generally speaking, I'm drawn to so-called "cozy" mysteries for one reason only: They provide refreshing respites in between the mind-bending murder mysteries and thrillers that constitute most of my reading list. So it was with this one, an advance copy I requested, and received, in exchange for an honest review via NetGalley. And like most others I've read, it's an engaging story and short enough that I finished it in one day. It is the second in the "Pancake House" series featuring shop owner ...more

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

A cute mystery where no one likes the victim. I'm not sure if I would have enjoyed this as much if it weren't for Marley. She's a good character for an amateur sleuth, but the story itself didn't capture my interest like I had hoped. Maybe reading the first one would have helped also. This was still likable, and I plan to read the next.

I've read the previous book and was delighted to read this one too.
This is a fun cozy mystery filled with colorful characters and witty dialogue.
In this story, a neighborhood resident is found dead and that leads to a series of investigations in which secrets are uncovered and nosy business owners get involved.
This was a fast paced story filled with suspicious activity, good friends and a bit of romance.
This should appeal to all cozy mystery fans.

Book received from NetGalley.

This was a cute, cozy, culinary mystery. While it is the second book in the series and I have not read the first I didn't have an issue keeping things straight that were mentioned in the first book. She gives enough background that reading at least these first two out of order is not an issue. While I did guess "whodunnit" before the end of the book I wasn't that far off so I still enjoyed the ending. While it's not the best mystery I've read lately I felt it was a g

This is the second book and Marley is settling into life in Wildwood Cove and her relationship with Brett and running the cafe.pancake house left to her by her cousin in the fist book.
Unfortunately someone is harassing Marley and vandalizing The Flip Side and Marley strongly suspects it is an old employee and her nemesis-of-sorts in the last book, Ida Winkler. When Marley goes

I really wish GR did allow for half stars for rating because this book was a solid 3.5 stars. Not as fast paced as the first one (i think) but still enjoyable.

What a wonderful treat it is to return to Washington’s Olympic Peninsula to spend a few days with Marley at The Flip Side pancake house she inherited from her cousin Jimmy. She now lives in the beautiful Victorian home where he and his late wife had lived and where she visited summers when growing up.

A long-ago former employee, fired for stealing, still returns to vandalize the pancake house when it’s closed. Ida is not a teenager, but a woman old enough to know better; she simply hasn’t learne

This is the second book in the Pancake House Mystery series. I would be happy if there are more books to come. I read the first book, Crepes of Wrath and thought it was great. This was a really good cozy mystery. The main character, Marley, was likable, and the plot made sense. Too many times, I read mystery stories where the motive for murder seems super random, and hard to understand. Wildwood Cove sounds like a great place to live, and the Flip Side Pancake house sounds like a great place to ...more

*Thanks to Netgalley, the publisher, and the author for providing me with an early copy in exchange for an honest review.*

1.5 stars but I'm feeling generous.

I really wanted to like this because I enjoy books that include food as a main aspect. Unfortunately this was boring and repetitive with flat characters and a slow story.
For the boring and repetitive sides: at least a quarter of the book could've been cut out due to snuggling with her cat, swimming in the ocean, and doing daily activities t

**I voluntarily reviewed this ARC**

The mystery was good, but the plot dragged a bit. Marley went swimming in the ocean a lot, but it never really had anything to do with the plot. The pacing would have been a lot better if those parts were cut out since they had nothing to do with the murder or character development.

I really enjoyed For Whom the Bread Rolls. I actually liked it better than the first book in the series. I wasn't as surprised by the big reveal in this one, but it was still a great mystery that was cleverly written. I am looking forward to book #3 in the series!

Note: I received a copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for my fair and honest review.

Just like the first book in this cozy series, The Crêpes of Wrath, the title of this second book is just a bit over-the-top cute. And so is the book.

The series is definitely very cozy. In Crepes, Marley inherited her cousin Jimmy’s small-town pancake house, The Flip Side. And solved his murder. In this second book, Marley is settling into her new life in tiny, touristy Wildwood Cove – and neck deep in yet another murder.

I sense a trend.

At the end of Crepes,

Marley has a suspicion the woman behind the trouble is Ida Winkler, a known thief and an unpleasant woman with a grudge against The Flip Side and Marley.

This is the second book in the Pancake House Mystery series and while I liked this book well enough, I found that I didn't like it as much as the first. For me, I found that during the first half of the book the pace was slow and the mystery took a back seat to the romance/relationship between Marley and Brett. I felt like the mystery got lost in Marley's issues with love and loss. At about the 55% mark of the book, it seemed like the author remembered the mystery and picked up that thread of th ...more

There are times when nothing will suit as well as a mystery and thanks for Ms Fox, I have discovered that I especially enjoy the cozy mystery genre and especially this series.



This book has a lot going for it. First of all, the characters are all so well developed and well...real. They remind me a lot of some of my friends especially as they are animal lovers also.And the setting itself is one that is local to me which adds just another touch to love. And let's not forget Ivan's recipes that are

Pancake house owner, Marley McKinney is enjoying tourist season in her new home. Everything is going well, except for the vandalism...

Marley is positive as to the identification of the person making prank calls, and painting the pancake house, however, the police need proof. Before Marley can confront the person, a murder occurs and makes Marley a 'Person of Interest.'

Marley and friends work hard to find the killer's identity so that the Pancake House doesn't get a bad reputation.
