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.
Wedding Cake is the final installment in the Culinary Mystery Series by Josi S. Kilpack. Most of the books in this series can be read as stand alone books; however, this one has a spoiler for an earlier story. So if you can handle knowing the criminal in one of the earlier books, go ahead and read this one. If you can’t, you better read the others first. Just a heads up.
I really love the characters in this series. Sadie is a great main character and her friends and family make wonderful secondary characters. They are all well-developed and you’ll feel like you know them as you’re reading the stories. I love that about series, and I hate it when series end. You feel like you’re losing a friend. That’s how it is with these books. I will have to go back and read the ones I’ve missed. Even though I haven’t read all of them yet, I feel like I know Sadie.
Wedding Cake is a really fast-paced book that takes place in the few days preceding a wedding. I won’t tell you whose wedding it is in case you haven’t read these yet! The criminal is creepy and manages to really mess up the plans for the wedding. A lot happens in this book, and I read it really quickly. It only took me a couple of days, it was that exciting. If you like cozy mystery books, you’ll love this series and its characters. I definitely recommend this one, but you’ll probably want to read the others first.
