MUCH ADO ABOUT NUTMEG by Sarah Fox
The Sixth Pancake House Mystery
The Flip Side is doing great business as tourists arrive in droves for Wildwood Cove's Golden Oldies Games. Marley McKinney is pleased to meet many of the competitors and is happy to see that her friend Ed seems to be smitten with one of the reporters. Her delight turns to anger when she overhears the woman admit to using Ed. When Marley witnesses an argument and hears angry comments against the woman she knows that this reporter is bad news. It's more than Ed's broken heart that's at stake when Ivan finds a dead body on the beach. It's not the competitor who fell overboard his yacht and is missing, it's the reporter. And she didn't accidentally drown, she's been murdered.
I was so excited to be back at the Flip Side in Wildwood Cove. Each time I'm dazzled by Ivan's culinary skill and drool over him and his creations; banana nut pancakes, anyone? The sixth entry into the Pancake House Mystery is special in that Marley and Brett are finalizing their wedding plans. But don't think the book is all food and romance. There is an intricate mystery featured here.
There are lots of suspects to be found at the Golden Oldies Games, athletes, journalists, and coaches, as well as friends and followers of the event. Many of these suspects have a history, which Marley needs to uncover in order to sate her curiosity and solve the mystery. While everyone has pretty much given up on getting Marley to stop her sleuthing, she finds herself understanding their dread at her inquisitive nature, as teenager Sienna has got the sleuthing bug and has Marley concerned for her welfare. I had my own theories, but found myself quite surprised at the way the mystery unfolded.
MUCH ADO ABOUT NUTMEG is a well constructed complex mystery. Characters with heart, a beautiful setting, and scrumptious food make this book even more delectable.
