Josi' Kilpack's Fortune Cookie Book Review

Fortune Cookie Tour
Fortune Cookie  Fortune Cookie 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.

My Thoughts:
5 out of 5 Stars

This was by far one of my favorite Sadie Hoffmiller books.The beginning opens with a stunning revelation that takes our quirky food-addict on one twist and turn after another into exploring the murky past of her long-estranged sister. With this very personal case, Sadie's character is explored in greater depth. When her sister is found dead and burned in San Francisco, she is confronted in this tasty, but dangerous, city  by the nephew she left abandoned to his fate, and the hurt of Pete's sudden preoccupation with his late wife. Now, doubting her own relationships, past and present, she struggles to understand a sister she'd long ago stopped trying to deal with, and the bizarre circumstances of her death. I was left one moment hurting for Sadie's difficulties, the next enthralled with her efforts to unravel a set of confusing clues that lead to far too many suspects. 

Without revealing any details, the ending completely took me by surprise. I so didn't see any of it coming from the finding of the arsonist to Sadie once again ending up in a hospital. The food descriptions made my mouth water, as usual. If I didn't burn water, I'd try every single one myself. As it stands, San Francisco has definitely been added to places to visit in the near future. Sadie Hoffmiller's story continues to intrigue and grow as her character deepens with each book. Though bitter-sweet, this tale holds all of Sadie's sass as she takes on the big city, and seeks justice for those she cares about.
