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.
I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.
Fortune Cookie is a good murder mystery that also includes a sweet romance, a lot of drama, and some interesting recipes. I haven’t tried any of the recipes yet but there are a couple that look pretty good.
Sadie, the main character, is a strong and independent woman but is insecure when it comes to her relationship with her fiance. I thought that what she’s going through is pretty realistic, although toward the end of the book, I was ready for them to get things resolved one way or the other.
This story flows well and is an easy read. It’s obvious that it’s not the first book in the series but it definitely stands alone. Anyone who enjoys a murder mystery will like Fortune Cookie.
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.
