Have yourself a very Merry Witchmas in Holiday Haven, where the magic and mystery of Christmas is snow joke!

Lumi Northrop is a powerful guardian of the north—the North Star Reindeer Sanctuary, that is.

When Rudolph vanishes the week before Christmas, Lumi is thrust from the peace and quiet of her family’s farm, into the magical town of Holiday Haven to help find him.

Lumi quickly discovers that Rudolph isn’t the only local celebrity who’s gone missing. Jack Frost is also MIA, just days before his coronation as the next Frost King.

Teaming up with Corbin Frost, Jack’s reclusive brother, Lumi finds more questions than answers. What she thinks is an odd coincidence quickly turns into something more sinister.

With time running out for Rudolph and Jack, can Lumi use her powers to save the North Pole?

Reindeer Runes is the second in the Winter Witches of Holiday Haven series, but it stands alone. It’s written by a different author and features different characters, but takes place in the same world.

Rudolph and Jack Frost are missing! In this fun Christmas cozy mystery Lumi and Corbin, Jack Frost’s brother, must find the missing icons before Santa finds out Rudolph is missing and before Jack misses his coronation as the Frost king. Lumi and Corbin are likable and their interactions feel real. Corbin is powerful but funny and a good detecting partner for Lumi, who is smart and quiet, and laid back. Their blossoming attraction didn’t feel forced or overly rushed.

The mystery was well-done. We had several possibilities and the “deadline” added some urgency. The supporting cast is a colorful collection, including pixies.

With mystery, magic, and a bit of romance this book is a perfect read for this time of year.
