My Rating: 4 Stars
A great addition to this collection!
A Hollywood film crew comes into town to film a horror movie and all the residents of Wildwood Cove are in a buzz. When the owner of The Flip Side Pancake House Marley McKinney gets wind that the leading actress, Alyssa Jayde, was her boyfriend's crush, she knows things are about to get interesting. As the crew gets a close and personal acquaintance with Marley’s pancakes, the make-up artist Christine invites her for a tour behind-the-scenes. As she arrives, she is faced with a trailer on fire and Christine inside.
As she digs into the complicated lives of the cast members, the investigation leads to more suspects with a plausible motive. Can she get to be bottom of the murder before the killer decides to get her next?
The writing style is just as great as the first novel. It flows smoothly, makes the story easy and quick to read. The author is very talented in describing everything and I get hungry for reading about pancakes and recipes. The novel is full of colour and smells that characterize Sarah Fox’s style so well.
The plot is good and it has enough twists to keep the reader guessing. The more of the characters and their stories are revealed, the more addictive the story becomes.
The characters are amazing and, like the previous instalment, memorable. I felt like there were too many characters at some point, even if they all belong to the film crew. I had to make an effort to keep track of everyone and their role. Marley is a great protagonist with a curious mind, cunning attitude and very smart. Her style and her way to get information on the lives of the cast members are brilliant and I found myself admiring her. The tension between her and her boyfriend Brett adds spice to the story and it definitely keeps the reader interested in what might happen between them by the end of the story. I would definitely want to jump into the story to meet Marley and her friends at the Pancake House and of course, to eat some delicious pancakes.
A cosy-mystery that fans of the genre and the series shouldn’t miss!
