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 thread 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.
It took half of a sleeping pill and twenty minutes of soothing rain sounds from an app on Shawn’s phone before Sadie fell asleep. She’d used her headphones so as not to disturb Shawn but woke up around five o’clock tangled in the headphone cord that she thought was rope for a frightening few moments. She couldn’t breathe, couldn’t think of anything other than the fact that she was trapped, that Jane had somehow won. The terror kept her frozen until she awakened enough to realize she was as safe as she’d ever been.
After disentangling herself from the headphones and thinking calming thoughts in order to get her heart rate back to normal, she put her legs over the side of the bed and sat up in hopes it would help clear her head from the leftover fog of the prescription medication she hadn’t used in months. The silver dawn of morning peeked through the gaps around the curtain, outlining Shawn’s mountainous form in the other bed. She stretched and blinked and only then did she remember everything. The subconscious hope of a new day was smothered and choked.
Author Josi S. Kilpack 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.
I just finished reading, "Wedding Cake" and I really liked it. This is the end of the series called, "A Culinary Mystery." Pete and Sadie are ready to get married and start a new life. It isn't long before they find out that someone who threatened her a few years before is coming after her. Sadie has decided, along with the rest of her family that this will not stop the wedding. I really liked the storyline and the conclusion. I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book for the purpose of a review and all opinions are my own.
