Fortune Cookie by Josi S. Kilpack
Sadie Hoffmiller has always liked things to be just so. A place for everything and everything in its place. Order over chaos. And of all things Sadie should be able to control, her own wedding is at the top of the list. With the big day just three weeks away, Sadie is busily adding the final touches to her wedding plans but the arrival of a mysterious letter from San Francisco changes everything. The only person Sadie knows in San Francisco is her older sister, Wendy, whom she hasn’t seen since their mother’s funeral nearly fifteen years ago. Sadie has faced off against murderers and criminals in recent years, yet the possibility of reconnecting with her sister is both overwhelming and frightening. Sadie soon discovers, however, that the letter is just the beginning when Wendy’s world turns out to be a place of unanswered questions, twisted truths, and more than one person with a motive for murder. The more Sadie digs into her sister’s past, the more she places her own future at risk.
It took me longer than usual to be drawn in by the latest Sadie Hoffmiller Culinary Mystery, but after a few chapters I was intrigued. I really enjoyed that I was kept guessing, and the resolution definitely had its surprises. The fortunes in the story were a good tie in and I enjoyed the many new characters.
I was worried for Sadie and Pete's relationship, but happy with the resolution to the entire story. There were a couple of aspects I would have enjoyed learning more about, but overall the ending was satisfying.
The sneak peek for the final book in the series is excellent. I'm excited to read the final installment of this clean series.
The eCopy I read didn't have recipes at the end of the chapters, so I was a bit thrown by that, but thankfully I found them at the very end of the book (even after the sneak peak), so fans of the recipes don't despair. They are included and some sound absolutely mouthwatering.
