It's that time of year again! It's always Christmas in Holiday Haven, but this December is a special one. Carolyn Highcrest is preparing for her parents to visit for the inn's annual celebration… and to finally meet her boyfriend, Spencer.
But when a mysterious package thief strikes the local postal service, Carol finds herself compelled to help Spencer find the culprit. Someone seems intent on ruining the holiday fun, with presents disappearing left and right and a spate of bad luck which reminds Carol of the havoc the previous year wreaked by an out-of-control wishing box.
With scheming co-workers, bizarre guests and an old rivalry to contend with, Carol finds herself under pressure. Can she save the holidays without having to resort to opening her old wishing box again?
This seemed tongue-in-cheek to the world right now! The worst possible time for the postal service to have issues could arguably be the holidays. Sound familiar?! But compound that with magical sabotage, and there you have it. This was a great cozy mystery with some great twists and turns. I love the characters, the good and the bad. And Carol’s quirky family cracks me up, reminding me of my own… minus the magical hats! And Sunbeam the owl… he just might be my favorite!
