Of Spice and Men: A Pancake House Mystery by Sarah Fox Giveaway & Interview

Of Spice and Men: A Pancake House Mystery
by Sarah Fox

Exciting and intriguing. A good book to curl up with in front of a fire.
~Laura’s Interests
Actually I’d have to say Sarah Fox and Marley are winners. Of Spice and Men is a 5 star read!
~My Reading Journeys
It is a fun yet suspenseful story–you’ll find humor, mystery, romance, and a look at what happens when a movie crew comes to town.
~Book Babble
OF SPICE AND MEN is a solid addition to the series providing an intriguing, well thought out mystery.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
I like Marley as the main character. Not just that she’s both plucky and nosy, but also the way that she has taken on the changes in her life and made a new life for herself in a new place with new (and interesting) people.
~Reading Reality
Sarah created a world that combined movie making, and rumors run amuck all placed in a small town setting where everyone knows that gossip rules the day.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews
It’s always nice when a book has more than just one plot, in this case, the killing is important, but let me say that the mysterious lights in the abandoned house seems a very interesting mystery, who doesn’t like ghosts?
This is such a fabulous series with fun quirky character.

Of Spice and Men: A Pancake House Mystery
Cozy Mystery
3rd in Series
Alibi (November 7, 2017)
Print Length 280 pages
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.
Bonus content: includes original recipes inspired by the Flip Side Pancake House menu!
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.
Sarah Fox’s addictive Pancake House Mysteries can be enjoyed together or à la carte:

About The Author

Sarah Fox was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia, where she developed a love for mysteries at a young age. When not writing novels or working as a legal writer, she is often reading her way through a stack of books or spending time outdoors with her English Springer Spaniel.

Where are you from?

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Tell us your latest news?

I recently signed contracts for three more Pancake House Mysteries and three books in a new cozy mystery series, The Literary Pub Mysteries. I’m so happy to continue Marley’s adventures with further Pancake House Mysteries and I can’t wait to share my new characters with everyone when the new series starts in January 2019 with Wine and Punishment.

When and why did you begin writing?

I wrote on and off through childhood but didn’t start writing seriously until I was in my early twenties and attending university. At that point I was focused on writing original television scripts but I didn’t know how to break into the television industry so I decided to try writing a novel. Once I’d written my first novel, I wanted to write another and then another. I’ve always enjoyed mysteries so I’m thrilled to be writing my own now.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

Even though I was writing regularly and knew I wanted a career in writing by my early to mid twenties, I don’t think I truly considered myself a legitimate writer until I signed with my agent in 2014. That’s when I felt like my writing switched from a hobby to a career.

What inspired you to write your first book?

My first book was a novelization of one of my television pilot scripts. I decided to write it in book form because I didn’t know how to establish a career in television writing and I was hoping to learn more about my characters by delving deeper into their stories.

Do you have a specific writing style?

I would describe my writing style as informal and conversational. So far all my mysteries have been written in first person and I hope my style allows readers to feel like they really get to know the main character.

How did you come up with the title?

I went through lists of famous novels and came up with as many food-related puns as I could. My editor also came up with some and now I have a list of titles to choose from for each book in the series.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

There’s no specific message I want readers to grasp. What I hope is that my books will entertain readers and allow them to temporarily escape from the stresses and demands of everyday life.

What would you like my readers to know?

As mentioned above, the pancake house series will be continuing for at least three more books after Of Spice and Men and I have a new series starting in January 2019. While the first three Pancake House Mysteries are only available as e-books (and audio books for the first two), the subsequent books will have some paperback copies available. The Literary Pub Mysteries will first be available as e-books and in hardcover, with paperback to follow.
