Synopsis

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.

My review:

Marley is in a whirlwind with her cousin’s death and everyone traipsing around.  She has had a rough past and now she is trying to solve this murder.  It was an ok read there were things that didn’t add up for me as a cozy goes.  Things were just not right like the lock on the door where did it go?  They didn’t break in take the extra/spare key and replace the lock.  Things she notices that were not there before but turn up things like that just don’t happen. It makes you wonder where the police where in this book. Plus there were too many side characters.  It just wasn’t for me.

Now the author does a good job with the descriptions for the crepes and pancakes.  The pancake house and the beach setting was great.

Over all it was an ok read.  3 Stars.
