Crêpe Expectations

by Sarah Fox

Crepe ExpectationsGood, but not excellent—that’s how I rate Crêpe Expectations by Sarah Fox. Unlike the other two cozy mysteries I have read by this author, I just didn’t find this to be a page turner. Despite that, I do plan on reading the next book Sarah Fox publishes.

In this book, Marley McKinney, owner of the Flip Side pancake house, spends her spare time trying to solve a cold case after she discovers a skull in the woods near the Wildwood Inn, a B&B that is about to open. Demetria, who disappeared when she was eighteen years old after a party, was assumed to be in New York starting a modeling career. So even the original investigation was delayed. At the same time she is investigating the murder, Marley is trying to discover who sabotaged the local amateur chef competition by making several contestants sick. Could the crimes be related?

I would like to extend my thanks to and to Lyrical Underground (Kensington Press) for giving me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

Rating:  4/5

Category: Mystery

Notes: #5 in the Pancake House Mystery Series but the author brings the reader up to speed even as she starts the action of the current plot.

Publication:   May 28, 2019— Lyrical Underground (Kensington Press)

      Thanks. When I first started reading cozies, I didn’t realize most have punny titles. I do think this one is particularly good, and it goes well with the series whereas some are a stretch.

  2. I did enjoy this book but it wasn’t up the Sarah Fox usual writing.

    I have read this series and find that I like them, but sometimes there is a niggle in the back of my mind. I have not read this one yet, but do plan to as I have it and I want to continue with the series. Glad it was still good enough that it didn’t turn you off the series or author.
