From the Publisher:
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 perfect final touches to her wedding plans. But the arrival of a mysterious letter that bears a San Francisco postmark and no return address could change everything. The only person Sadie knows in San Francisco is her older sister, Wendy, whom she hasn’t seen or heard from since their mother’s funeral nearly fifteen years ago. Sadie has faced off with murderers and crooks in recent years, yet the potential of her sister reentering her life is both overwhelming and frightening. But, as Sadie soon discovers, the letter is just the beginning. Wendy’s world turns out to be a place of unanswered questions, twisted truths, and more than one motive for murder. Includes eight new mouth-watering recipes, tested and approved by the official bakers of Sadie’s Virtual Test Kitchen The authors culinary mysteries have become favorites with members of Goodreads and other book networking sites.

We are nearing the end of the Sadie Hoffmiller series and adventures.  I found that I really enjoyed this book.  I liked that it talked a little bit more about Sadie’s family and history.  I loved that it showed that Sadie and Pete had some struggles (sorry if that is a spoiler).  These made everything more real to me.  I was glad to see they were a little bit more like a real life couple.  I was hoping that the new extended family members that Sadie meets in this book might continue in the next one, but they didn’t.  But other than that I really liked this book.
