So when Max Bittersohn’s wife, Sarah Kelling, offers to organize his nephew’s nuptials, Max is smart enough to stay out of her way. But when the art-fraud investigator stumbles onto a family mystery, he is drawn into something far more serious than the question of who will catch the bouquet. Stolen years earlier, the priceless Kelling jewels were last seen in Amsterdam, so how did they end up among the wedding gifts? Max is trying to answer that question when a talkative burglar wallops him with a shovel in a failed attempt to rip off the rubies.

The 12th book in the Max Bittersohn/Sarah Kelling series, and the last one. Max and Sarah are throwing a huge wedding for Max's nephew. Naturally, they want everything to be perfect. And everything seems to be, until Max finds the priceless Kelling jewels hidden amongst the wedding presents. When last seen, or perhaps NOT seen, the jewels were absent from the bank box where they were supposed to be, having been sold by Sarah's mother-in-law. They were counterfeited and sold several times, ending up in Amsterdam. So how did they get here? Max, having discovered the jewels, is then promptly hit over the head with a shovel by a burglar. That's only the beginning of the unraveling of the festivities, as Max determines that someone has it in for him, personally. Even for the crazy Kelling clan, this is a wedding to remember!

It's sad to read the last of the series, as I do enjoy these. They are best read in order, I think, although that's not how I read them. A great way to spend a quiet afternoon.

Then, a hot air balloon lands in the middle of the backyard with some scary neighbors inside. There’s a body found, Max is kidnapped and thrown in the ocean and their son is missing for hours. The family gathers together to find Max and keep Sarah and her son safe.

I have enjoyed reading all twelve books in the series. The books are better read in order just to get to know the many fun and unusual characters and keep them straight. The Balloon Man tied up any loose strings in the series for a good finale.

Charlotte Mac Leod developed this series starring Sarah Kelling and Max Bittersohn over two decades, and this is the last book published in 1998. These are comfortable mysteries with well-developed characters that evolve through the series. Charlotte developed Alzheimer's disease and passed away in 2005, but one wonders how Sarah and Max and their 3 year old Davy got along. In this last chapter, the plot is familiar, with another unknown disturbed psychopath threatening the family. This one seem more of a stretch than the earlier books, and Charlotte must spend too much time explaining the tenuous connections at the conclusion, Still, I will miss them and wonder how Davy grows up.

As always, I find Charlotte MacLeod wonderful reading. Her tongue-in-cheek humor which is so hard to do successfully is apparent in her characters and situations. I was glad that she brought the emeralds (introduced in the first book of the series) into the mystery. I learned a lot about seaweed, but not tediously. Davy is a poignant part of the story. I also like what she does with Jessie. Sarah seems to be haunted by brothers and sisters (not hers) who are strangely interdependent. I was truly sorry that this was the last book of this series. I love her exaggerated and fun glimpses into a world of--well, you'll have to read to discover it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and the author. It is a fitting final book for Ms. MacLeod. She has gathered together all the characters of her previous books, whether dead or alive, plus added a few new characters. A very good read!
  • Gozragore
As always, humor mixed with mystery makes a fun Sarah and Max story.
Vintage Charlotte MacLeod. I have read all her books before many years ago. This was a revisiting. Even after so many years I felt sad that this was her last one of the series, that tgere wasn't anymore coming.
