Book #4: A Pancake House Mystery Series
Source: NetGalley and Purchase
My Rating: 3/5 stars
The Bottom Line: UGH! For the second time in just a few days, I find myself at odds with a cozy mystery series. Yet again, I have come to the point where the setting of the series seems to be what’s keeping me tied to the series and that just isn’t enough any longer. The bit of this book I enjoyed the most was the secondary plot line which had absolutely nothing to do with the primary focus of the book. In truth, I found the primary plot line to be somewhat dull and the growth in some of the primary characters (Marley, Brett, Ivan) to be, minimal at best. While I appreciate this is a cozy mystery, I think this series has gotten a bit too cozy for me and that is what’s leading me to call it a day with the Pancake House Mystery series. To remain engaged, excited, and entertained, I need more action (appropriate to the genre), more character growth, and more interesting plot lines. From a technical perspective, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this book, and I cannot fault the author one bit on this component, but I don’t think that’s going to be enough to bring me back for round five.
Just for fun, I thought of who might be an unlikely killer. It turned out that I was right, but when I do that, I just randomly pick for the heck of it not knowing any reasons behind it. That was one nail biting showdown for sure! I really wasn't positive how Marley would get out of this one, but it was a good case of people being in the right place at the right time--and Marley driving a little crazy. I love how close she and Brett have become and can't wait to read on in the series. Maybe I'll get caught up before book 7 is released in January.
After a bitter encounter at The Flip Side between Wally and Marley, the next time she saw him he was dead. An unfortunate accident in the kitchen of Waffle Kingdom? Or murder?
As Marley tried to find answers – especially as her best friend Lisa appeared high on the suspect list – the Sheriff told Marley to keep out of it. But how could she? And with her boyfriend Brett worried about his father’s health, she knew she couldn’t burden him with her suspicions. Would Marley discover who was at fault? Or was she putting herself in danger?
Yeast of Eden by Sarah Fox is a delightful, fun cosy mystery which I thoroughly enjoyed. 4th in A Pancake House Mystery series (and the first I’ve read) I had no idea who the killer was until the reveal. I was surprised to say the least! I’ll be going back to the beginning of this series now – I guess I’ve found another new author! Highly recommended. (oh, and grab the recipes at the end too - The Flip Side's very own!)
It doesn't help that Marley's boyfriend's father is in the hospital or that she finds old journals in her attic from a missing person from many years before. How can Marley possibly concentrate on all of the clues?
As always, I enjoyed visiting these characters and feeling like I was part of uncovering who was the real killer. I especially enjoyed the older crime that was slowly being solved throughout the book. Marley and her friends definitely had their hands full making all of the pieces fit together in this story.
