Mini Review--Home for the Holidays by Jeaniene Frost

Originally appeared in the print anthology The Bite Before Christmas.

'Tis the season to join Cat and Bones for some holiday cheer in this Night Huntress novella by USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost.

They were looking forward to a normal holiday—at least as "normal" as it gets for vampires Cat and Bones and their otherworldly friends and family. But their yuletide plans are shattered when a mysterious stranger shows up and reveals long-buried secrets that threaten to take a bite out of their holiday cheer … and lives.

This was the perfect time to read Jeaniene Frost's Home for the Holidays, for this is the time when it takes place! Just before Thanksgiving and leading into Christmas! I was able to devour this one in under a day as well as my previous novella read. This too was quite wonderful! Probably moreso because it was a Night Huntress Novella starring Bones and Cat along with Ian (YES!) Denise, Spade, Mencheres and Kira! 

Bones gets quite the surprise when a mysterious vampire comes to him with a shocking claim! I don't even want to get into that claim because it was quite the jawdropper, so I am avoiding naming words and terms! But there is definitely something odd about this newcomer. Everyone is acting strangely, except for Cat, Denise and Ian, they are the only ones immune to this weirdness.

Soon the three band together to figure out the what's and why's and all the complicated questions as to just WTF is going on! It gets deeper and messier than you think. This is definitely the perfect read for the holiday, bloody guts and all! ;) (Okay, there's really not that much guts!)

I could've sworn I heard that the events here will lead us into Up from the Grave, but I can't be sure now. But it was definitely a fun read with a happy ending naturally, for we all know that Cat and Bones will get out of this scrape, Up from the Grave tells us that just with its very existence! 

Overall Rating 5/5 stars
