cozy-mystery, christmas, friendship, family, law-enforcement, murder-investigation, amateur-sleuth, women-sleuths Mistletoe, Maine is a very friendly town that emphasizes all of the positive things of Christmas and most of the townsfolk are very likeable. A few, however, are anything but, like the guy who turns up dead in a giant candy bowl in downtown. Unfortunately, the chief suspect is the mayor's daughter who has a cupcake shop against the parent's wishes and, more importantly, is best friends with amateur sleuth Holly White whose family operates the tree farm with a twist. But there is a decent suspect pool, only the sheriff appears unwilling to investigate but Holly keeps trying despite personalized threats. There are enough twists and red herrings to keep the suspense going and the reader from doing other things! I requested and received a free review copy from Crooked Lane Books via NetGalley.

Reindeer Games is a beautiful Christmas Tree Farm in Mistletoe, Maine, and it’s the perfect winter wonderland to escape to for lots of fun and relaxation. Construction is underway for the new Inn that Holly White will manage, and her family hopes it will be ready by Christmas Day. Alarm bells start ringing when a local investor, who’s also a womanizer, is found dead in a huge bowl of peppermint candy at the tree lighting ceremony. Caroline, Holly’s best friend, is the top suspect, so Holly starts asking questions around town even though Sheriff Evan Gray, her boyfriend, tells her to let him handle the investigating. I found the writing top-notch as the author skillfully ribbons suspicious characters, including Santa Claus’s, throughout the brilliant plot. Threats to Holly snowball as the real killer’s tension escalates. The story is a pageturner! Rich in details, the originality of the setup of the town of Mistletoe and the Reindeer Games Tree Farm is simply captivating. I want to visit and stay at the new Inn! The characters are written so friendly and likable or they’re detestable. I loved the magical ending for Holly. I’m excited about book three and looking forward to reading it. I reviewed a digital arc provided by NetGalley and Crooked Lane. Thank you.

A Visit to Reindeer Games Farm is a Christmas Tradition! The Town of Mistletoe Main is home of Reindeer Games Farm and has become an annual Christmas destination for people from around the World. It’s also become a holiday tradition for me as I love this series and it helps to set the mood for the holidays. Love it!

Holly White works on her family’s farm that is non stop Christmas from the day after Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day. People travel to Mistletoe for the holiday celebration and this year is just as busy as the years past. When Holly’s BFF Caroline is arrested for murdering her date, Holly is committed to clearing her friend’s name before Christmas arrives. But with the holiday at Reindeer Games, her mail order jewelry business, and all of the decisions that she must make about the Inn that her family is building, Holly is in over her head. But Christmas is full of Miracles and Santa…if you believe. The town of Mistletoe is absolutely a hoot to visit in this book and I look forward to next years entry. Last year’s was one of the best holiday series I have read and this year’s did not disappoint either. Going to read this again both books again the week before Christmas because I love them that much!
