Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town that celebrates Halloween 365 days a year.
Jayne Frost is a lot of things. Winter elf, Jack Frost's daughter, Santa Claus's niece, heir to the Winter Throne, and now private investigator. Sort of.
Needing someone he can trust, her father sends her undercover to Nocturne Falls to find out why employees at the Santa's Workshop toy store are going missing.
Doing that requires getting to know the town, which leads to interesting encounters with a sexy vampire, an old flame, and an elevator that's strictly off-limits. The more Jayne finds out, the more questions she has, but the answers lead her deeper into danger.
Will her magic save her? Or will she come up cold?

Yelping yetis! A great new series!

Where does Miss Frost Solves a Cold Case rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I loved this book. Lighthearted and fun, just like all of the Nocturne Falls books.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jayne was my favorite character. She's strong, snarky, and fun... the perfect heroine for this book.

What about Hollis McCarthy’s performance did you like?

I hadn't heard Hollis McCarthy narrate any other audiobooks, but she nailed this one. Each character had his or her own voice and the tone of the scenes came across just right.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed out loud quite a few times.

Any additional comments?

A Nocturne Falls spinoff series? One that blends cozy mystery, year round Christmas, and Halloween 365 days a year? Yes please, sign me up!
Jayne Frost, the daughter of Jack Frost and the niece of Kris Kringle, is the Winter Princess and a pretty big deal in the North Pole. Not that it matters to her, she'd rather be happy. She's part of the family business, and her family needs her at the Nocturne Falls Santa's Workshop flagship store. It seems that elves are leaving with no notice, never to be seen again, and the higher ups (ie: The Big Guy in the Red Suit) are starting to notice. Jayne needs to go undercover and try to solve the mysteries surrounding the disappearances. What she doesn't count on is running into her old flame Cooper, a summer elf, or meeting sexy Roma vampire Greyson. Yelping yetis... what's a girl have to do to find her happiness and save the family business?

Princess Turned PI!

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

Fun fantasy

Any additional comments?

When Jayne’s father, Jack frost, sends her on a secret mission Jayne is thrilled to be outside the North Pole. She sees the job as a chance to improve her skills and her worth but the job gives her more than she bargains for. When she learns to care for the inhabitants of the strange town of Nocturne falls, she knows exactly what she could lose when she eventually reveals her true identity.
I was immediately drawn by the cover of this book and I’m glad I was. Jayne’s character is sweet and funny and the book sits between the fantasy, mystery, and fairy tale genres perfectly. Jayne made me laugh and the balance of characters worked well together. I also appreciated the mixture of fantasy and modern day technology and the Nocturne Falls setting was a good touch of both.

Loved it!

Would you consider the audio edition of Miss Frost Solves a Cold Case to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version but thoroughly enjoyed the audio version.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Juniper - the character just appeals to me

Any additional comments?

I Enjoyed this one so much I went on to listen to the other Nocturne Falls books (they're OK-ish, but romances don't interest me as much as mysteries) and bought the second Jayne Frost book as soon as I saw the audio version was available
