Wedding Cake by Josi Kilpack
After years of mysteries, murder, and mayhem, the big day has arrived, and Sadie wants nothing more than for her wedding to Pete to be completely uneventful. When she receives a threatening, anonymous text message just days before the ceremony, she's determined not to let it interfere with the celebration she has carefully planned for months. But as the threat escalates from a distant fear to a frightening reality, Sadie realizes just how much she's underestimated the situation. Desperate to put an end to the games, lies, and manipulation that has shadowed her life, Sadie, her fiance, Pete, and her children pull out all the stops. What they don't know, however, is just how far Sadie's nemesis is willing to go to make good on the threat she made to Sadie three years ago.
Will the wedding go off without a hitch, or will "'til death do us part" come far too soon? There's no turning back for anyone in the riveting conclusion to this twelve-volume culinary mystery series.

My review: This book was bitter-sweet for me. I have loved reading Sadie's adventures and her recipes. I've loved "being a part" of her life. But even the best things can't last forever and I knew that eventually Sadie's adventures would end, and now the time has come. I loved everything about this book. I loved that Sadie was Sadie, spunky and determined not to let her and Pete's special day get ruined, even going to the point of putting herself in danger several times. I loved that she worked so hard to figure out just where the threat against her was coming from, but she also knew when to stop and back off to protect those she loved. I loved that all of the characters that I have loved through the series were able to come back one last time to kind of pay tribute to Sadie and Pete as they get married. The plot of this one is great, just like all of the others, you won't want to miss reading any of it, and you won't want to put it down until you get to the very last word. I must warn you though, if you haven't read the others you're going to be really confused, so make sure that you've read them all.
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Josi S. Kilpack hated to read until her mother handed her a copy of The Witch of Blackbird Pond when she was 13. From that day forward, she read everything she could get her hands on and accredits her writing “education” to the many novels she has “studied” since then. She began writing her first novel in 1998 and never stopped. Her novel, Sheep’s Clothing won the Whitney Award 2007 for Mystery/Suspense. Lemon Tart, the first book in the Sadie Hoffmiller Culinary Mystery series was a finalist in 2009. Josi currently lives in Willard Utah with her husband, children and super-cute cat.
