Currently Reading...

I'm currently reading The Crepes of Wrath by Sarah Fox. This book is the first in the Pancake House Mystery series and will be released August 16th. (Note there is another cozy mystery with the same title written by Tamar Myers. That book is part of the Pennsylvania Dutch Mystery series.)

Taking a leave of absence from her job as a legal assistant in Seattle, Marley traveled to the Olympic Peninsula to manage her hospitalized cousin's pancake house. Enjoying her time in the small town, despite a recent rash of burglaries, Marley gets a message that her cousin Jimmy is leaving the hospital early, against medical advice, and will take a taxi home. Since Jimmy dislikes taxis she finds his mode of transport as odd as the timing of his departure; almost as odd as the unpleasant woman claiming to be his girlfriend...who he never mentioned. Yet Marley's day gets even more shocking when not only does an old crush come into the restaurant, but moments later Leigh, the primary waitress rushes back in after leaving for the day...and after finding Jimmy's body on the rocks of Wildwood Beach.
