A Room with a Roux

Published January 12th 2021 by Lyrical Press
Pancake house owner Marley McKinney takes a break from the Flip Side for a romantic getaway. But soon, instead of mixing batter, she’s mixed up with murder . . .
Marley and her new husband Brett need some quality couple time before the holiday madness, so they drive up into the mountains of the Olympic Peninsula to charming Holly Lodge. Before long they’re enjoying snowshoe excursions, hot chocolates, and cuddling in front of a roaring fire. Despite some barely concealed marital tension between the owners of the lodge, they’re finally able to unwind . . .
Until one morning when they notice a glove sticking out of a snowbank outside of the lodge. Inside the glove is a hand connected to a frozen corpse buried beneath the snow—lodge owner Kevin Manning has been murdered. Presented with a stack of suspects and eventually stranded at the lodge by a blizzard, Marley has to catch the cold-hearted killer before someone else gets iced . .
This is the seventh book in the Pancake House mystery by Sarah Fox.
This book starts off at a holiday location and the mystery follows them back home. I thought that was an interesting dynamic. This series just keeps getting better and better. What a delightful read.
The thing I missed was The Flipside and all its aspects including minor characters. Oh, it does show up eventually but it wasn’t in a big enough dose for me. I am a big culinary cozy fan and love all their foodie talk.
The mystery drew me in and had me at its mercy. It is so fun to follow the rabbit trail and find out what the author has in store for us. Can’t wait for the next installment.
If you like cozy mysteries, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
