The Crêpes of Wrath: A Pancake House Mystery by Sarah Fox

Marley is running Uncle Jimmy's Pancake House until he  recovers from pneumonia and can get back to work.  She's surprised when he calls and says he's getting out of the hospital early.  She's even more shocked to find him dead in rocks on the beach.  Who would kill an old man and what's going to happen with his business now?

Alibi and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It is being published today.

Marley has met an old friend of hers from the past.  Brett is just as handsome as he used to be and he's still single.  Michael seems like a nice guy, too.  But with Jimmy's death, she has other things to work on.  She keeps the business going and starts asking questions.

She has a crusty old chef who can do wonders in the kitchen and a female waitress.  The sheriff accuses the waitress of the murder.  Marley knows she didn't do it so she has to help her prove it.  Then Marley finds stolen goods hidden in Jimmy's shed.  She knows he didn't steal the goods.  The sheriff is not so sure.

When she inherits the house and restaurant, Marley doesn't know what she wants to do.  She has a good job in the city to return to.  But she loves this small town and the people here.  When her neighbor tries to buy the house, she makes up her mind.  She won't sell.  More harassment follows that.  And Marley keeps asking questions.  She finally asks too many...

This was a good read with a blossoming romance.  The tale reads smoothly and is believable.  It's a great cozy.  Sit down with your cup of coffee or tea, have a cookie, and start a fun tale...
