I was happy to discover there was one more book in the Main Street Witches series allowing me to enjoy more time with Kat and Liam, Luanne and Sean, and Fiona and Gavin along with other regular Banshee Creek quirky folks. I soon discovered that this was not just wrapping up one series, but also the transition book introducing another so there was some hello-ing going on with my good-byes.
A Very Merry Witchmas is the four book in the Main Street Witches series. It is following up on characters from previous books so doesn’t make a good place to begin even if it does transparently introduce newcomer, Claire the necromancer who gets her own series beginning with Hex Marks the Spot
But, in this one, we have the usual town love for festivals and parties. Its the Christmas season so the paranormal group have picked the high school where a ghost of a prom girl wants to dance with all the boys as the place to host their televised cookie baking contest for all the local businesses. Things get off on an ominous foot when a person is found murdered and it seems a once harmless ghost may be the culprit.
Kat is busy burning cookies in her practice run throughs, feeling dread that something bad is happening while suspecting the new TV Celebrity witch in town of more than being too intent on her craft. Luanne is seeing a bad omen in the cards and Liam even starts to be affected by the atmosphere.
It was chaotic and fun as usual, but has grown progressively darker as the witches and paranormies all sense something big is going down soon. I had a good time seeing how Kat and Liam are doing after their unique romance and adventure with their cursed house, but it was meeting the colorful and unique Claire who will be getting her own series that had me most intrigued- okay maybe it was also Claire’s Chihuahua hellhound, Pookie, too.
All in all, it was a fun Banshee Creek-style Christmas and wrap-up for a series and I don’t have to be sad because there is more to come from a world I have come to love. Those who enjoy paranormal cozies should give this series (and the one before it) a try.
