This series opener is making me consider setting up a new shelf - Holiday Romantic Mystery because it has a wonderful balance of all three elements. The setting couldn’t be more Christmas-y with the fictional town of Mistletoe Maine and a tree farm with reindeer, complete with a cafe with lollipop-shaped stools and a menu that references endless items of holiday cheer. The heroine may have the cutesy name, Holly White, but she is smart and focused after she finds an elderly resident bludgeoned to death outside her door. The sheriff is hot, of course, but equally smart and fully capable of solving the complicated crime without Holly’s help. The plot and romance move along at a perfect pace with just the right amount of tension and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. This is a great book to read over the holidays or any time you need a boost to your mood.
