Nikki is a chocolatier and Hawk is her police officer fiancé. The police chief is also Hawk’s father. Nikki and Hawk are planning their wedding when the police chief’s good friend is found murdered and the chief is next to die. Can Nikki and Hawk figure out the murdered before their wedding day? This was a lovely read, I really enjoyed it. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Truthfully I haven't read to many of this series. Actually this is my second book so I have a whole lot of catching up. And if the books are just like this one I am in for a treat. This book was very entertaining and to be a quick read I really was captivated. The murder and the way it was worked out was great. It wasn't rushed and really no clues to who done until the end. I really like that. I hate when you figure who done it by chapter two, not with this book.
It's finally time for Hawk and

I was captured from the first page. I have not read the complete series, but had no trouble following the plot. Nikki and Hawk are planning their wedding when there is a murder. Between running her chocolate shop and investigating with Hawk, they are talking about postponing the wedding. The victim was a friend of Hawk's father, and on his body there was a message for the chief threatening his life. Lots of old cases to go thru keep Hawk and Nikki busy as the chief goes into "protective custody ...more

Nikki and detective Hawk are finally about to walk down the aisle. Sadly, before their big day, a heart wrenching death happens. Someone from the past is looking to take revenge on the chief .

Digging through past files from his cases give Hawk and Nikki a bit of a melancholy review. Childhood photos of Hawk and memories of his mom are revealed and several cases reviewed. Some saw positive changes in the convicts, other lingering anger and danger.

Suspense filled action and romance in a KU

Wedlock Cake Murder is a quick paced, wonderfully written page turner that can be read in just over an hour. The characters are friendly, loving and supportive of one another. The bit of action that was included included thorough details that added to the thrill of the scene. This is a must read in the series.

This was another exciting book in the series. Nikki and Hawk have to solve a murder to protect his dad all before their wedding at the end of the week. Nikki ends up being targeted by the murder as a way to get to the Chief. The wedding finally does happen. Linda, Tori and Seth were able to make sure that Nikki’s surprise got finished.

Nikki and Hawk are about to tie the knot and Nikki tries to create the perfect wedding cake for her husband-to-be, when a good friend of Hawk's father is killed and a note pinned on the body indicates that he will be next.
Protecting the Chief, trying to find the murderer AND preparing for the wedding at the same time is nearly impossible.
An entertaining cozy, that was really fun to read. An unusual storyline that made the story a little crazy, but still believable.

Nikki and Hawk are planning on getting married in a few days. As they are out on a date, Hawk gets a call that another officer has been killed. He finds that officer is also the good friend of his father. There is a note indicating the Chief, Hawk’s father, is next. They ask that the Chief stay away from police work to allow Nikki and Hawk to find the culprit.

Read on to see how the two identify the person who committed the murder and why.

I love this author and her clean reads! This is one of her best series too and I am thinking, 12 is not enough! Nikki and Hawk, such cool names, are the best characters ever and Ms. Meadows is an excellent writer so this book captivated me to the end! I am hoping for the lucky 13th!

Wedding Day Stress!
Can Nikki and Hawk solve the murder mystery in time to celebrate their wedding on time? Planning a wedding is stressful enough but add solving a murder, saving the Chief’s life and creating the perfect wedding cake puts it over the top. An intriguing storyline. Enjoy!

I received an advance copy and am happy to leave my honest review.

This is the last book in this series and I found it to be very enjoyable. Nikki and Hawk are caught up in solving a murder and hiding out Hawk’s father (the chief of police) in a safe house, while also planning their wedding. I am so sorry this is the last book, but I am happy that everything came together in the end.
