Release Day: For Whom the Bread Rolls

fox_forwhombreadrolls_cvr_all_r3Today is the day the second Pancake House Mystery makes its way out into the world! For Whom the Bread Rolls is the sequel to the USA Today bestseller The Crêpes of Wrath and takes readers back to the seaside town of Wildwood Cove, where pancake house owner Marley McKinney tangles with a salty trouble maker… and a ravenous killer.

As with The Crêpes of Wrath, For Whom the Bread Rolls includes recipes inspired by the menu of The Flip Side pancake house.

Here’s more about the book:

Tourist season’s in full swing in the small seaside town of Wildwood Cove, and Marley McKinney couldn’t be happier. Since taking over the Flip Side restaurant, she’s made a few close friends, adopted a cat named Flapjack, and started dating her childhood crush. The only cloud on the horizon is local nuisance Ida Winkler, who blames Marley for landing her nephew in prison. Trying to get a rise out of Marley, Ida’s been making crank calls and even vandalizing the pancake house.

The police can’t do much about the pranks, so Marley sets out to bury the hatchet once and for all. But someone’s beat her to it—in the most shocking way possible. After stumbling across Ida’s dead body, Marley’s suddenly the number-one suspect in her murder. Clearing her good name is going to be a tall order, but Marley’s not about to let Ida keep ruining her life—especially from beyond the grave.

You can find For Whom the Bread Rolls wherever ebooks are sold, including Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.

Cover Reveal: For Whom the Bread Rolls

I got my first glimpse of the cover for the second Pancake House Mystery, For Whom the Bread Rolls, about a week ago and I absolutely loved it right away. It’s so cute and cozy and perfect for the story, which is, after all, a cozy mystery. 🙂

I’m super excited that I can now share the cover with the world, so I won’t delay any longer!

Here it is:

Isn’t the cat adorable?

I’m so grateful to the Alibi design team for creating such a great cover, and I can’t wait until the book is out in the world too. For Whom the Bread Rolls will be released in March 2017. In the meantime, if you haven’t yet checked out the first book in the series, The Crêpes of Wrath, you can find it here.

Thanks for coming by to see my new cover! 🙂

Release Day: The Crêpes of Wrath

Cover - Crepes

The release day for The Crêpes of Wrath is finally here! I’m beyond excited that this book is now out in the world, kicking off my new cozy mystery series!

The first book in the Pancake House Mystery series, The Crêpes of Wrath introduces my newest heroine, Marley McKinney, who finds herself in a sticky situation: stacking pancakes, pouring coffee, and investigating murder.

Here’s more about the book:

When Marley McKinney’s aging cousin, Jimmy, is hospitalized with pneumonia, she agrees to help run his pancake house while he recovers. With its rustic interior and syrupy scent, the Flip Side Pancake House is just as she pictured it—and the surly chef is a wizard with crêpes. Marley expects to spend a leisurely week or two in Wildwood Cove, the quaint, coastal community where she used to spend her summers, but then Cousin Jimmy is found murdered, sprawled on the rocks beneath a nearby cliff.
 
After she stumbles across evidence of stolen goods in Jimmy’s workshop, Marley is determined to find out what’s really going on in the not-so-quiet town of Wildwood Cove. With help from her childhood crush and her adopted cat, Flapjack, Marley sinks her teeth into the investigation. But if she’s not careful, she’s going to get burned by a killer who’s only interested in serving up trouble.

The Crêpes of Wrath is available from online retailers such as Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, Chapters, Barnes and Noble, Google Play, and iTunes.

Cover Reveal: The Crêpes of Wrath

A while back I announced that I’ll have a new cozy mystery series (published by Penguin Random House) beginning in September 2016 – the Pancake House Mysteries. The Crêpes of Wrath is the first book in the series and will be released as an e-book on September 20, 2016. Today I’m excited to share the cover for The Crêpes of Wrath for the first time.

Here it is:

Cover - Crepes

I love how the designer incorporated a glimpse of the ocean and really captured the cozy feel of the story and the setting – the seaside town of Wildwood Cove.

I’m also excited to share the cover copy for the book, so you can find out what it’s about:

In the debut of a delightful cozy mystery series, Sarah Fox introduces a charming new heroine who finds herself in a sticky situation: stacking pancakes, pouring coffee, and investigating murder.

When Marley McKinney’s aging cousin, Jimmy, is hospitalized with pneumonia, she agrees to help run his pancake house while he recovers. With its rustic interior and syrupy scent, the Flip Side Pancake House is just as she pictured it—and the surly chef is a wizard with crêpes. Marley expects to spend a leisurely week or two in Wildwood Cove, the quaint, coastal community where she used to spend her summers, but then Cousin Jimmy is found murdered, sprawled on the rocks beneath a nearby cliff.

 After she stumbles across evidence of stolen goods in Jimmy’s workshop, Marley is determined to find out what’s really going on in the not-so-quiet town of Wildwood Cove. With help from her childhood crush and her adopted cat, Flapjack, Marley sinks her teeth into the investigation. But if she’s not careful, she’s going to get burned by a killer who’s only interested in serving up trouble.

I can’t wait for this book to get out in the world and for readers to spend time with the main character, Marley, in Wildwood Cove! 😀

The Crêpes of Wrath is currently available for pre-order from online retailers like Amazon.

Writing Update

Writing-wise, the last few months have been very busy for me, but in the best possible way. I’ve been working on two cozy mystery series, both of which have books coming out in the next few months. In January, the second book in the Music Lover’s Mystery series, Death in A Major, was released as an e-book, and the trade paperback was released in mid-February. While that book was getting released into the world, I was working away at the third book in the series (Deadly Overtures) as well as the first book in the Pancake House Mystery series (Crêpes of Wrath).

At this point, Deadly Overtures and Crêpes of Wrath are with their respective copy editors. The manuscripts will come back to me one more time for final review, and then I won’t see them again until they’re published. (Exciting!) Deadly Overtures is due out in June 2016 and Crêpes of Wrath will be released in September 2016.

I’ve seen the cover for Deadly Overtures and absolutely love it. I’m hoping I’ll be able to do a cover reveal soon to share it with everyone. I hope you’ll all love it as much as I do!

While I’m waiting for the copyedited manuscripts to come back to me for final review, I’m working on the second book in the Pancake House Mystery series. Although I’ve been doing some brainstorming and plotting for a week or two, I only started drafting it this weekend. Aside from reviewing my other manuscripts one last time, this is the book I’ll be focusing on for the next few months.

I hope readers will enjoy both series! 🙂

Book News!

I’m happy to announce that I have another book deal! My fabulous agent, Jessica Faust, has sold my cozy mystery Crêpes of Wrath to Penguin Random House (Alibi) in a three book deal!

The first book in the Pancake House Mystery series, Crêpes of Wrath follows Marley McKinney as she works to solve a murder while managing the Flip Side pancake house in the seaside town of Wildwood Cove, Washington.

I had so much fun writing this book and I’m excited to write the second and third installments of the series over the next year. The seaside setting was inspired by the place where I vacationed each summer while growing up, and I’ve loved incorporating the setting into the story.

The pancake house mysteries will be available as ebooks and Crêpes of Wrath will be released in September 2016.

I’m so happy about this news, and I hope readers will enjoy this new series! 😀
