What do you do when you're out voted on hosting a holiday party, complete with gift exchange and all the trimmings? Tie on the apron and deck those halls. Self proclaimed Scrooge, Maurin Kincaide accepts the challenge and tackles the yuletide with all the determination she would a Council task. But not everyone is brimming with holiday cheer. A blood coven threatens to bring the holiday festivities to an end. Can Maurin stop the dark magic before the clock strikes twelve, signaling the solstice?

I received Mistletoe Meltdown in return for review as part of the tour hosted by Bewitching Book Tours. It’s the Christmas season so Maurin is hosting her first ever holiday party which means lots of decorating, her first time cooking and presents. Everything is ready when the guests start to arrive for the party and things are going perfectly until Maurin get’s a phone call she can’t ignore and they head off to save the day. 

Arriving at Toil and Trouble they learn that the bouncers are gone and the place is a wreck. Amalie throws up a shield to protect them from the dark witches using blood magic. Working together they will have to dispatch the witches without ending up in the line of a curse. 

I like Maurin a lot she’s quickly become one of my favorite characters in the urban fantasy world. I also really like her growing collection of friends. It’s interesting to see how so collects new people to be part of her little group. We have a chance to see her new relationship with Mason who happens to be fae and I’m not sure how I feel but things seem to be working out. 

Mistletoe Meltdown is a short novella that fits in perfectly with the series I do admit I missed seeing the relationship blossom between Mason and Maurin but I’m enjoying that they are together. While the novella is short it’s a perfect blend of holiday cheer and action packed showdown. The author has created an exciting world with humans and supernatural beings. Mistletoe Meldown is a fun installment in the Maurin Kincaide series. I can’t wait to dive into the next one, this one was perfect for a warm winter day. Highly recommend for fans of Urban Fantasy.
