be their first big case together, Alex and Poppy are brought in to help.
But Stephen has never liked Poppy, and tensions quickly begin to run high
between the two sets of partners. The Sunset Ridge police force can’t
afford to have infighting if they want to solve this case before a
fear of witches takes hold in town.

Alex wonders if he will be a Sunset Ridge police officer for much
longer. Life is about to change for him and Poppy, but will that
change mean the end of his time in town?

For three years, Poppy and Alex have worked together solving cases in

take the final step and become husband and wife, but in the midst of
getting ready for what folks around town are calling the wedding of
the year, the murder of someone involved in the preparations makes
their plans go awry.
Samuel Morrow, the kind man who has run Morrow’s Jewelers for over twenty
years, is found murdered in an apparent break-in, and there’s no
shortage of suspects who may have had a reason to kill him. Oddly
enough, something very valuable to Poppy and Alex is missing from his
store too. Is the theft connected to the murder?
As they hunt for Samuel’s killer, carefully eliminating suspect after
suspect, they must juggle cake tastings and reception planning, as
all the while someone’s watching their favorite amateur sleuth. Will
Poppy and Alex solve the case and reach the altar, or will the killer
make their ever after far less than happy?
