This is a standalone cozy mystery novel, set in the Wayfair Witches world. It can be enjoyed without having read the Wayfair Witches series.

A holiday heist, a powerful child, and a parolee Melissa can’t stand the sight of? It sounds like a recipe for a very Merry Solstice.

The Nemo Foundation’s kids are planning some Solstice shenanigans, but Melissa has no idea what their hijinks might entail. She’s far too busy figuring out why an emaciated wizard was drained by a harpy, and trying to keep a young weredog out of jail. Plus, the Queen of the Faeries has promised three miracles this holiday season – and in order for those three miracles to pass, Melissa must learn to trust someone she hates.


This book just shouted HAPPY HOLIDAYS, and I loved it. All the Christmas-time vibes with some magical miracles really melted my heart.

I love that this story had quite a bit of Will in here. I’ve always loved his character and I really needed and appreciated getting more of him in this book. Especially with Melissa. The focus on forgiveness was tender and fit this story perfectly.

This really is the last story [right now?] for this series. It’s a side story that didn’t have a murder mystery this time, but a mystery all the same. We got to know more of the members of Nemo and the great work that Melissa and Miles are accomplishing for and with them.

Heartwarming and a delightful read. I’m glad I took the time to read these side stories as well. They truly only added to the whole Wayfair Witches series.

Overall audience notes:

  • Paranormal cozy mystery
  • Language: none
  • Romance: kisses
  • Violence: magical, kidnapping
