    I received an e-copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review

    The Ivy Granger series just keeps getting better! While I enjoyed book 1, Shadow Sight, it had a couple of rough edges that were smoothed out in Blood and Mistletoe. And nice bonus...there was a pronunciation guide/dictionary for all those tricky Gaelic/fae names!

    Blood and Mistletoe resumes Ivy's story a few months after book 1 ends and Ivy is already showing personal, professional and romantic growth which bodes well for the series overall. Not only is Ivy growing, but other characters as well like Jinx and Marvin are becoming more well rounded.

    This is a quick Christmastime novella, but never fear, it does tell a complete story and gives a further glimpse into Ivy's world. It's a compact, fast-paced mystery with a touch of snark (you know I love snark).

    All in all, Blood and Mistletoe is an excellent addition to the Ivy Granger series and I'm looking forward to continuing Ivy's adventure with Ghost Light in July 2013.

    Review From My Urban Fantasies

    Originally published on my blog, My Urban Fantasies.
    (myurbanfantasies.blogspot)

    Our favorite snarky psychic detective is back! Blood and Mistletoe takes place a few months after Shadow Sight. Yes, before you even ask Ivy and Ceff are still dating. Yay! Their relationship does not play a huge role in this novella, but it's something I just cannot get enough of. I like seeing Ivy's squishy side.

    The holiday season is not slowing down business at Private Eye detective agency. Ivy is finishing with a client, a bugbear, when Forneus comes strolling into the office. Forneus stops flirting with Jinx long enough to tell Ivy some disturbing news. There is a serial killer in Harborsmouth and they are targeting the fae. Five fae have been found murdered, the only thing linking the victims is a piece of mistletoe left at each crime scene.

    The length of this book does not take away from the story at all. Blood and Mistletoe is fast paced, full of action and mystery. I love how E.J. Stevens combined Christmas elements into the murders.

    My favorite part of the story was the end. Let's just say it was the perfect Christmas gift. *wink*
