The Delight

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.

Review

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.

About Ani Gonzalez

Hi! I write about smart, funny people making out (and finding corpses) in haunted houses. I like ghost stories, chocolate, and sangría.

The following two tabs change content below.
I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

I’m glad the series wrapped up nicely. I get bummed when the ending is subpar.

You said it. There is nothing as disappointing as loving a series to the end and then seeing it fizzle out.

I love Pookie! I do need to go back and read this series. This sounds like a fun quick read.

I had a good time with all the books through the Banshee Creek set, the Main Street witches, Dora stories, and now Claire. They’re on KU if you have it. 🙂

Your witch cozies remind me a little of this series so you’d probably like them, Melanie! 🙂
