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.

This is the second book in the Pancake House Mystery series. I would be happy if there are more books to come. I read the first book, Crepes of Wrath and thought it was great. This was a really good cozy mystery. The main character, Marley, was likable, and the plot made sense. Too many times, I read mystery stories where the motive for murder seems super random, and hard to understand. Wildwood Cove sounds like a great place to live, and the Flip Side Pancake house sounds like a great place to eat. I wish I could visit this town. I found the descriptions of life on the beach very relaxing. It made me wish I had a cute little beach house too.

Marley has decided to stay on in Wildwood Cove and seems to be making a good life for herself. The only problem is someone is vandalizing her business. She discovers that it is Ida Winkler, a cranky older person who blames Marley for putting her nephew in prison. The police are not much help, as they think Ida's vandalism falls under the category of "pranks." Marley goes to Ida's house to confront her, and finds that someone has murdered Ida.

Since Marley found her body, and because of her past history with Ida, Marley is a suspect in the murder. Marley decides to look into Ida's death to help clear her name (and also because she is a snoop who can't let things go). It turns out, Ida was not well liked by her neighbors, and had managed to alienate almost everyone around her. Subplots of meth labs, illegal dumping and blackmail abound. Marley is continuing her romance with Brett from the first book. I love how Ivan steps up and we get to see more of the cook from The Flip Side. He is a great character.

I enjoyed this book and thought it was a nice continuation of the series. This is one series that I definitely want to see more of and plan on reading any future books.

I received a free ARC from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )

This Pancake House Mystery finds Marley McKinney settling into her new life in Wildwood Cove. She is updating her home and loves working at the Pancake House that she inherited from her cousin who was the victim in the first book in the series. With her relationship with Brett, her boyfriend developing, she is quite happy with her life, except for Ida. Ida Winkler has been harassing Marley with prank phone calls as well as adding graffiti on the windows of the restaurant.When Marley decides to confront Ida about the reasons behind this behaviour, she finds Ida dead, stabbed to death in her shed. Of course with Marley's issues with Ida and the fact that she found the body, she is a person of interest. Marley doesn't want the locals to think she killed the woman, so she decides to do a little sleuthing to find the actual killer. As she begins to ask questions, she finds out that there are a lot of people who might want Ida dead. Who is the culprit.

Marley is a strong, independent and intelligent woman. Her restaurant seems like a cozy, enjoyable place for the townsfolk to meet up. The supporting characters are all likable with enough quirkiness to make them interesting. The mystery is well-paced with plenty of suspects. The ending, unfortunately, was not what I expected. The culprit was reasonable, but the other story line of blackmail, was a bit too conveniently settled. Other than that, I enjoyed the book very much. I am going to continue to read this series, hopefully the concern I had with this one was just a blip. This was a quick read, or in my case listen as I had the audiobook, with just over 200 pages. The Narration in the book was well done with an easy to listen to voice. If you like culinary cozies, pick this one up and see what you think. ( )

Marley has settled into her new life in Wildwood Cove as the owner of The Flip Side. However, someone in this tourist town doesn't seem to like this outsider and graffiti is the first of several annoyances she has to deal with. I really like the setting of this series and the secondary characters, particularly those that work at The Flip Side are good. The mystery is well paced and I liked figuring things out with Marley.

Book received from NetGalley.

This was a cute, cozy, culinary mystery. While it is the second book in the series and I have not read the first I didn't have an issue keeping things straight that were mentioned in the first book. She gives enough background that reading at least these first two out of order is not an issue. While I did guess "whodunnit" before the end of the book I wasn't that far off so I still enjoyed the ending. While it's not the best mystery I've read lately I felt it was a good way to escape for a few hours and I will give more in this series a try. ( )
