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. 

Welcome to Wildwood Cove, an idyllic seaside town, home to rambling Victorian houses, fabulous views, friendly locals and charming shops........but also home to someone with murderous intentions!

The first in a new series of Pancake House Mysteries introduces us to Marley who's arrived from Seattle to help out at her cousin Jimmy's Flip Side Pancake House for a few weeks while he's recovering in hospital.  She has fond memories of long ago summers spent at Wildwood Cove with her cousin and his family.

But when Jimmy is murdered and Marley discovers some stolen paintings in his workshop, her stay turns out to be longer than she anticipated as she is determined to clear his name and find out who killed him.

This is an enjoyable read with some quirky characters, plenty of suspicious suspects with motives, delicious pancake recipes, a little romance and a charming heroine in Marley McKinney.

I liked the Pancake House setting, and I look forward to the next in this new series.
