Poor Jayne. She has another adventure. This time looking for an Imp that is causing havoc for Nocturne Falls. It will take her and all her friends and then some to catch the little Imp. This book is just a good as the first as well as all the other Nocturne books. I am so glad i found this series. It makes me laugh and laugh. Keep up the good work Kristen. I also love the narrator. She brings life to all the characters.

I'm a sucker for all things Nocturne Falls! l love the idea of a town that celebrates Halloween 365 days a year as a cover up so all supernatural beings can go about their lives right out in the open. When the non-supernatural drink the local spelled NF's water, they never suspect all the crazy weird things they see are actually real. Kristen Painter has done an AMAZING developing the world with such rich and vivid details giving the stories a realistic quality.
Jayne Frost is a funny spin-off from the original Nocturne Falls series that takes the reader back to NF to revisit all unique characters and cleverly named shops and businesses while she solves another case. Jayne's cat has accidently released a mischievous Imp from a decorative box she bought at an estate sale and now it's playing devilish tricks on the whole town. Frustrated, the town is expecting Jayne to find the Imp and stop it before it causing anymore havoc, and now she has another case to solve. Where did the Imp come from and why is it here.
Kudos to Hollis McCarthy for delivering an awesome performance! I liked how she portrayed Jayne and the new characters; however, I have to be honest, I miss B.J. Harrison. Harrison did such an outstanding job with the original series, especially the male characters and their accents. McCarthy and Harrison would make an awesome duo for future stories in either series.
Miss Frost Ices the Imp was a fun light listen that's cute, clean and can be easily read by all ages, and totally worth a credit!

The narrator made the main character have a childlike voice. I'm sure the first book wasn't as bad.
Found it really off-putting.
Any additional comments?
Jayne is enjoying her new role as the manager of the toyshop. She likes working with her best friend Juniper but the best thing about being in Nocturne Falls has to be her boyfriends, both of them. Greyson is a cute vampire with a sexy Irish accent and Cooper is a summer elf who was her first love back in college. She cannot possibly choose between the pair.
Her life becomes complicated once more when she opens a box and lets trouble out. What do you do when your cat starts talking?
Jayne is such a likable character that you can’t help but care about her but as for her love life I can’t help but wonder what’s on her mind. She needs to choose and my vote is on the vampire. Painter describes Jayne’s need for sweet treats too well, I can picture each and every dessert in detail and I’m not sure that’s a good thing because I’m now craving pastries, ice-cream, oh and a talking cat.
The Nocturne Falls series is entertaining and the Jane Frost spin off is a good addition. This narrator has a pleasant tone, but her manner of speech is annoying. Some words, or syllables, are drawn out unnecessarily then the following words are tripped out overly fast as if she has to make up the time she lost on the previous word. The same habit makes some simple statements sound like slow considerations, which does not sit well. The voices are a little inconsistent, Sometimes Jane sounds like she is 10 years old. I don't know how anyone can call her a "great narrator". Adequate, not great. Listen to the sample, it is not quite a deal breaker for me, but it would be for some.
