About the anthology:
Publication Date: 11/1/2020

Miss W’s Review:
Hexes and Holly is a wonderful Christmas Anthology featuring some of the best cozy mystery authors there is!
Morgana Best’s “But Wait… There’s Myrrh” is a fantastic funny novella. Jennifer is the protagonist and she is hitting menopause and something else is also going on, something magical! This story was SO hilarious and well written. There’s murder, menopause, and mayhem. This prequel novella to a new cozy paranormal women’s fiction leaves me wanting more and I cannot wait for this new series.
Yule Tide Murder by Jenna St. James is so fun. Fights going back hundreds of years and multiple suspects for murder and robbery. This is such a great book with Serena and Grant.
Hidden in Plain Sight by Amorette Anderson
If you read the Hillcrest series you will love this! Marley and Penny have a mystery on their hands finding the stolen christmas decorations. Gargoyles and witches make for such a fun story.
Bespelled by Ava Mallory
This was such a fun short story . A Beatrice Montoya short. I really loved it!
Things that Go Bump and the Knight by Hermoine Moon.
I haven’t read this series yet, but I loved this story and reading about the Avalon Cafe.
I will definitely be picking up other books in the series.
Lost Souls ParaAgency and The Christmas Siren by K.M. Waller
I love the Lost Souls ParaAgency so much and this was a great addition.
Such a fun story.
Angels, Eggnog, and Murder by Tegan Maher
This story was so AMAZING! I think it takes a very talented author to be able to do a crossover and seamlessly incorporate 3 different series. Kira from Southern Soul Hunter series goes home with Shelby to Keyhole Lake and their is a murder to solve. I loved the story from Kira’s voice it was so neat to see Keyhole Lake from her perspective as an outsider.
Mystic Greetings by Leanne Leeds
I hadn’t read this author before and this was an interesting story. It was short and I think I need to go look at her other books to understand the characters a bit more.
Merry Misdeeds by Misty Bane
A fun story . There is a Christmas festival and a woman that has way too many enemies is killed.
The setting is all paranormals which I really enjoyed. I will look for more from this author.
Mintwood Christmas Paws by Addison Creek
This was a fun story, and I really enjoyed Paws. I will definitely check out more of this authors work.
Wicked Gift of the Witch by ReGina Welling & Erin Lynn
I REALLY loved this one! Hagatha Crow oh my goodness! She tries to spoil Christmas, but it doesn’t worked as planned. I LOVE this series and I was so pleased to read this fun short story. If you haven’t read the series yet, I highly recommend it!
All I Witch for Christmas is You by Samantha Silver
This short story is from the new Fairy Falls series which I LOVE!
Mina and Pawdrey are auditioning for a film role for Pawdrey when a rare gem is stolen.
This was a great mystery that I really loved. If you have not read this author yet, go run and check her out. The next book in this series comes out November 15th and I am really excited!
Mistletoe Murder by Stella Berry
This was a different type of mystery and a bit sad. The main characters is very likeable.
Sugarplum Spooks by Stephanie Damore
I love this series with Claire and Nick. I always get so excited to read books from this series.
The mystery was well written and I love the characters in this story. Definitely check out the rest of the series.
