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.

The author starts by giving a strong warning not to read this book until you've read all the others in the series. The other books are all stand alones and this book brings lots of the characters back together for the finale. I haven't read all of them but have read enough of them that I didn't feel lost during this book.

Sadie and Pete are getting married in a few days and Sadie's nemesis returns in time to make a mess of everything. She's prepared to take Sadie down and doesn't let anyone or anything stand in her way. There were times when I thought things couldn't get any worse, and then they would. 

I enjoyed all of the characters in this one, even the crazy one. Sadie and Pete had a huge mess on their hands and they handled it better than I would have. They tried to keep things on schedule as much as possible and stayed calm for their families. They were a step behind the entire time which was frustrating since they were constantly cleaning up messes. They had a large support system in place which helped get them through.

This is one of those books that I just couldn't put down once I started reading it. I wanted to know what would happen next. There were plenty of twists and turns along the way to resolution and I thought the ending was perfect! I have enjoyed the books I've read in this series and have made a few of the yummy recipes over the years. There are some great ones included in this book as well! It's always sad to see a wonderful series come to an end. If you enjoy clean, cozy mysteries, this is a series worth reading!
