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 . . .
Includes pancake recipes right from The Flip Side menu!
“Readers will cheer this brisk, literate addition to the world of small-town cozies.”

Wow! Sarah Fox knows how to take a cold case and turn it into a fast-paced, thrill of a ride. In this book, she brought all the feels and I was left with a major book hangover. I already loved this series but the end made me love it all the more. This series has become one of my must-reads and the author has become one that I automatically lean toward wanting to read.
Thank you to NetGalley, Sarah Fox, and Kensington Books for allowing me the chance to read this book and to share my honest thoughts and opinions with others.
