I loved the original Nocturne Falls series so much, I just had to listen to the new series. It's everything you come to expect from Kristen Painter! A well written story that's clean, funny, full of suspense, and of course a cat!
Kristen takes us on another visit to Nocturne Falls for an adventure with Jayne Frost, the Winter princess, who goes undercover to investigate why employees are quitting and disappearing from Santa's Workshop.
When Jayne arrives in Nocturne Falls, we are introduced to new characters, while running into a few old friends. In addition, to these new characters, we get to see a different side of Nocturne Fall; a slightly darker side. With each new story, Kristen expertly develops both the characters and town to the point they appear real and tangible. The stories are so well written, you can easily visualize each scene, learn something new about the characters and town, and get lost in a good story.
I really enjoyed listening to this book, and will be on the lookout for future stories; however, it's definitely different from the PNR Nocturne Falls stories we are used to listening too. This is truly a detective story, with no romantic HEA's, and is told from Jayne's POV. We follow Jayne as she secretly investigates the missing employees, meets new friends, goes on dates, and solves the case.
While I missed B.J. Harrison narrations, this is a new series so it makes sense to go with a different narrator and Hollis McCarthy did a great job! While this is the first audiobook I've listened to by her, she did an awesome job on the voices and each main character had their own voice and was easily identified.
Besides getting used to the new narrator, and not having the romantic HEA, this was a great mystery and evil villain.
If you are a fan of the Nocturne Falls series, this story is a great addition to your collection

Would you listen to Miss Frost Solves a Cold Case again? Why?
Yes, I would Definitely listen to this again. I listen to all Kristen Painter's books multiple times. Just because they are fun!!!
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
The plot was better than I anticipated. On the edge of my seat??? Not so much but it definitely kept my attention.
Any additional comments?
Kristen Painter's books are fun and entertaining, light reading or listening. After a heavy work laden day, it is always nice to have something to take your mind off of reality, And they always leave me in a rather good mood and waiting for the next one.

What did you like best about Miss Frost Solves a Cold Case? What did you like least?
The setting in Nocturne Falls was the best thing. The worst thing was that there was no real involvement at all from any of the characters that we've come to know and love. I know it's a new series but why set it in NF if you're not going to include anyone we know? (except as the most casual passing reference)
What three words best describe Hollis McCarthy’s voice?
The narrator was OK - her voice is pleasant but her dialect/accent switching quite patchy so that our heroine ended up with an Irish accent if she was speaking to Greyson and so on. Also a lot of the characters seemed .. for no particular reason sound like someone from NY or New Jersey - which is a bit strange as NF is in Georgia and the heroine is from the north pole? As a Brit I found it particularly confusing.
Could you see Miss Frost Solves a Cold Case being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?
No I really can't
Any additional comments?
I wouldn't listen to any more of this series although I may read the next book before making a final decision. I REALLY want the next Nocturne Falls (with B.J narrating) to be available now!

This book takes places in Nocturne Falls but is different from the books in the Nocturne Falls series. It is the beginning of a series that stars Jayne Frost, Winter Elf, Winter Princess and Santa Claus’ niece. She is sent to the family store in Nocturne Falls to investigate members of staff that have gone missing in unusual circumstances. It has romance but is more of a mystery.
This book is written to the same high standard as the Main Nocturne Falls book. It is well written and fun while at the same time being a good mystery.
It’s a good solid supernatural, cozy mystery.
