Of Spice and Men by Sarah Fox- A Great Escapes Book Tour with Giveaway
About the book (provided by Great Escapes Tours)
Lights. Camera. Murder? Wildwood Cove’s star turn is soured by a sneaky killer in this delicious cozy mystery from the USA Today bestselling author of The Crêpes of Wrath.
With a Hollywood film crew in town to shoot a remake of the horror classic The Perishing, the residents of Wildwood Cove are all abuzz. Even Marley McKinney, owner of The Flip Side Pancake House, can overlook the fact that the lead actress, Alyssa Jayde, happens to be an old flame of her boyfriend. After all, the crew loves Marley’s crêpes—so much so that Christine, the head makeup artist, invites her onset for a behind-the-scenes tour. But when Marley arrives, the special-effects trailer is on fire . . . with Christine inside.
The cops quickly rule Christine’s death a murder, and Alyssa a suspect. Marley’s boyfriend insists that the actress is innocent, but when Marley sticks her nose into the complicated lives of The Perishing’s cast and crew, she discovers more questions than answers. It seems that everyone has a hidden agenda—and a plausible motive. And as the horror spills over from the silver screen, Marley gets a funny feeling that she may be the killer’s next victim.
And I thought. . .
First things first. If there was a contest this cover wins!
Actually I'd have to say Sarah Fox and Marley are winners. Of Spice and Men is a 5 star read!
Dig in and turn the pages in this fun and fast paced Cozy little mystery. Of Spice and Men is book 3 in the yummy pancake mystery series featuring Marley the owner of the Flip Side Pancake House.
The Flip Side is a fun and yummy place I could almost smell the pancakes and other creations. I can't wait to try a couple of the recipes that are included in the book.
Not that it is a negative thing but I wish I had read the other two books in the series. In book 3 Marley is settling into a romantic relationship. Everything is all cozy and sizzling with the new boyfriend Brett until way too much of his attention turns to his ex.
Alyssa is the gorgeous and sultry ex who happens to come to town to shoot a movie and gets herself accused of murder.
Marley has to put down the pancake turner and do some snooping to clear Alyssa's name and get her packing it back to Hollywood and out of town!
Of Spice and Men was a fun read and kept me turning the pages. I enjoyed meeting Marley and reading my first book in the Pancake House Series. I am definitely putting the the other books in the series on my to read list!
