A Kelly Society Christmas is a fun, paranormal with a holiday twist. The blending of Krampus with getting ready for Christmas is expertly done. I connected with Vivien right away. Her running around getting ready for Christmas is relatable and honest. The introduction of the Krampus myth is well-conceived and believable. The plot moves at a quick pace with snappy dialogue, a tight cast of characters, intricate action scenes, and a setting perfectly described. While this is a novella, it is a complete story with a full plot arc. The descriptive narration captures the reader’s attention while the world-building allows the reader’s imagination to take off. Paranormal readers will love this holiday story. A fun twist on holiday reads, A Kelly Society Christmas is a must-read this holiday season or even anytime during the year. Highly recommend!
