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

After five years of running the Holiday Haven Inn, Carolyn Highcrest thinks she can handle anything. She and her best friend Mercy are determined to make their festive weekend celebrations the best they can possibly be, despite being surrounded by scheming rivals, melodramatic theatre group members and overenthusiastic carollers.

What Carol didn't anticipate was a visit from her eccentric family, whose knack for trouble and attachment to their cringeworthy custom-made hats threaten to derail her focus. To make things worse, a magical wishing box intended for the weekend's event disappears, and soon after, a string of inexplicable pranks hits the inn, seemingly a result of the box's powerful magic.

Carol is inclined to blame both the theft and the pranks on her long-term business rival, Janice, but all too soon, events are spiraling out of control. Can Carol fix the trouble before the holiday cheer is ruined?

Carol and Mercy are owners of the Holiday Haven Inn. They have a weekend celebration planned which includes carolers, a festive food menu, a theatre production, and the use of a wishing box. The wishing box disappears soon after it is delivered and things immediately start falling apart. Carol and Mercy need to find the wishing box before the whole celebration is ruined.

This is a fun series. I love Holiday Haven and all of the residents. It’s also fun that the stories are written by different authors and feature different characters, but all take place in the same town – and have a touch of magic.

This one was not my favorite. Carol jumps to conclusions too quickly and is kind of mean about her family, who seem eccentric but harmless. Also, I didn’t quite get the magic. Mercy has magic and so does Carol’s mother who is a witch, but neither seems to really do anything with it. All of the magical pranks are due to the wishing box. But Christmas, magic, and a bit of a mystery made the book fun enough.
