REVIEW: For Whom The Bread Rolls

For Whom the Bread Rolls
Author: Sarah Fox

For Whom the Bread Rolls is the second book in the Pancake House Mystery series. This new tale finds Marley McKinney settling into her new life in Wildwood Cove. She loves her ocean front home and pancake restaurant, The Flip Side, that she inherited from her deceased cousin. She also loves her boyfriend, Brett. In fact, life would be pretty perfect....except for a vengeful, nasty woman, Ida Winkler. Ida does little annoying things like scrawling graffiti on the restaurant's front windows and prank calling the restaurant continually. Finally, Marley has had enough. She goes to Ida's house to confront her....and finds her dead. Marley doesn't want the locals to think she killed the woman, so she decides to do a little sleuthing to find the killer. As with most small towns, it turns out there are a lot of people in Wildwood Cove with secrets. But which one is a murderer?

I enjoyed this book. Marley is a strong, independent and intelligent woman. Her restaurant seems like a cozy, enjoyable place -- wish it was real! I would definitely eat there! The supporting characters are all likable with enough quirkiness to make them interesting. The mystery is well-paced with plenty of suspects.

It isn't necessary to read book one before delving into this mystery. I haven't read The Crepes of Wrath yet, but was easily able to get into this story and the characters. I'm definitely going to read the first book! I have it on Kindle just waiting for me. :) For Whom the Bread Rolls, a quick read at just 212 pages, is definitely an enjoyable cozy mystery.

Sarah Fox also writes the Music Lovers Mystery series. For more information on the author and her books, check out her website: http://www.authorsarahfox.com/
