Julia Dorning is about to lose it. Between her over-the-top wedding that her sister, Anna, took upon herself to create, and the under-staffed popular bakery that she runs, she can barely find time to breathe.

All Julia ever wanted was a quaint wedding on the beach with family and friends. But now Julia has to contend with not only her sister's plans, but those of her future mother-in-law, as well. Not wanting to step on anyone's toes, especially her mother-in-law's, Julia just goes along with it.

She can only take so much, though, and when her newest employee, Kate, makes things harder at the bakery, Julia has to find a way to simplify her life.

Can she do it or will she end up a basket case? Find out how she does it in this hilarious conclusion to the Spinster series!

AudioBook Review: Stars: Overall: 2 Narration 3 Story 2 Not having read any of the earlier books in this series, but finding the synopsis delightfully entertaining and promised something lighthearted and laugh worthy, I jumped right in. The heroine, Julia, is due to be married soon – and if that’s not enough, she’s also trying to find time to sort out all those little ‘issues’ that pop up with her bakery. And with a wedding that she didn’t plan (her sister did), both families vying for their own ‘say’ in her special day, and when the ex-girlfriend shows up (because you can’t have enough piling on for keystone-cop-like issues to occur. You guessed it – too much going on, not enough development of relationships or character, no backbone whatsoever for Julia, and no let off from her over the top family. It was exhausting just getting through the first hour of this audio – and I had over 5 to go. Frequent breaks as there was so much action as to slow my interest to a crawl, it took a concussion (seriously!) for Julia to find ANY backbone – and, quite frankly, it was too little far too late. There was little romance, and even less progression with characters and their relationships – I was overwhelmed with the stress juggle that Julia lived with – never quite dealing with anything but simply moving it from one hand to another for ‘dealing with’ another time – if ever. I never saw, even with some backbone growth, any real development for Julia – I arrived in the story with Welcome stamped on her forehead, and we left with the same feeling. It’s sad – but this story felt young and unrealistic, missing an editor to sharpen the points and remove the candy floss fluff that simply piled on without any real foundation. Narration for this story is provided by Ann Marie Gideon and her performance was solid. She embodied Julia and managed to provide enough distinction to give me clear understanding that another character was speaking – but I was so uninterested and disengaged from the actual words being said I truly can’t expound on her performance of the story – certainly I would listen to another title from this narrator. I think, if you are a fan of ‘young and immature’ thirty somethings and a story that is based (and gleans humor) from the negative – this is a series and book you’d enjoy. Fans of earlier titles in the series may appreciate this as the ‘wrap up’ to the series, but I’ll not be actively seeking other titles from this author. I received an AudioBook from Tantor Audio for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Julia Dorning is running to get into shape for her upcoming wedding to Jared Moody. Her sister, Anna, is acting as her wedding planner and coach, hoping to get some pounds off Julia before the big day. Anna loves big weddings as does Jared’s mother, Bobby. Julia would prefer just to have a very simple ceremony but her vote is losing out. Julia owns a popular bakery where her cupcakes are the best. Her helpers Patti, Debbie, and Kate all work together using their own specialties to keep the bakery running smoothly. Julia is stressed not only with the wedding plans but now she is to be interviewed by the press about her bakery. The person interviewing her is Lisa. And who is that, you say? The evil type of “frenemy” that all of us have in our lives. Lisa used to date Jared many years ago and is now dating his brother, Mark. Lisa is jealous that she was unable to snag Jared and now she seems set on doing what she can to stick little digs in Julia. Oh good grief. Julia hates confrontations and is just trying to deal with it. With Anna texting her every five minutes with questions and constant suggestions for “improving” her wedding, Julia is a wreck. Her good friend, Brown, is newly married and trying to get pregnant. Trying to support her and filling in for her husband for doctor’s appointments while he is away, will have you rolling on the floor. I hope I have reeled you in now. This is the funniest book ever. I have read all of the author’s “Spinster Series” books and have laughed all the way through them. Don’t miss out on Julia. She makes Lucy Ricardo of I Love Lucy fame look dull. This book is hilarious, sweet, and clean. It just doesn’t get any better than that. I look for even more great books by the author. She is very talented. It’s rare that I want to give a book six stars, but this is certainly one of them. Copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.
