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' niece, heir to the Winter Throne, and now...private investigator. Sort of. When she buys a sealed box at an estate sale and cat-related circumstances cause that box to be opened, life in Nocturne Falls starts to go haywire. Jayne has no choice but to figure out what she unleashed and how to recapture it.

But Jayne suspects the woman behind the box is hiding something. Something that could cause a town resident serious trouble. Or, worse, to lose their life. With the help of her two favorite guys, a sexy vampire and a hot summer elf, and a few new friends, Jayne tackles what feels like an impossible mission. And winds up almost iced herself.

    "Another winner!"

    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.

    "Can't Get Enough Nocturne Falls!"

    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!

    "ICE PRINCESS AND THE IMP"
    If you could sum up Miss Frost Ices the Imp: A Nocturne Falls Mystery in three words, what would they be?

    FUNNY. MYSTERY. AWESOME!
    Funny as all get out! With a touch of mystery/suspense. Including so many town characters into the story was AWESOME! Loved it - and I am so glad that Spider can still talk. That was a NICE touch Kristen!!


    What other book might you compare Miss Frost Ices the Imp: A Nocturne Falls Mystery to and why?

    Well the first Miss Frost book was great - so I guess I would have to list that. However, the Miss Frost stories are lighter and funnier than the other Nocturne Fall books. I am glad that Kristen Painter brought this funnier lighter side to Nocturne Falls.


    What does Hollis McCarthy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Hollis does a great job as Miss Frost. Love her doing that and the main characters that surround Jayne. It was a little harder to hear Birdie, Hank, Stanhill, and a couple others when I am used to BJ Harrison doing those parts in the other books, but I overlooked it and enjoyed the job that Hollis did. Great job Hollis!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, yes and yes. I have all the Nocturne Fall books and have listened to ALL of them numerous times. Kristen cannot write them fast enough and make them available in audio form fast enough. It is just wishful thinking on my part that we use magic to clone her and get the end product her fans need. Love you Kristen!


    Any additional comments?

    Still waiting for this to be made into a TV series. I quit watching TV because I didn't like the programming that is on......but I would watch this - plus I would record and watch over and over. I have so many favorite characters. Even if you didn't do a TV series, your could produce and put straight to DVD and sell. I would buy!!!!!

    "Great Series!"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book; this is the second book in the Jayne Frost series written by Kristen Painter and narrated by Hollis McCarthy. Jayne Frost lives in Nocturne Falls, the town celebrates Halloween 365 days a year. Jayne is a winter elf, Jack Frost’s daughter and Santa Claus’s niece. Jayne is enjoying her new job at the toy store in town. She is ready to start decorating her apartment. While shopping at an estate sale she sees a sealed box and has to buy it. Her cat ends up knocking the box onto the floor and accidentally opens the box. Since opening the box, strange things have been happening around town which is not good because the people in town are trying to hide the fact that they are all supernatural. It is now up to Jayne to recapture what was in the box.

    The narrator Hollis McCarthy did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to in one sitting and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.

    If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

    "Mischief Managed"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. This book is so full of fun and mayhem that even AllState would want to insure the town of Nocturne Falls. While they are in good hands with Jayne at the wheel, many insane occurrences such as a certain news paper executive turning blue.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Miss Frost Ices the Imp: A Nocturne Falls Mystery?

    Delaney asking Jayne to beg her Aunt Martha for the fudge recipe.


    What does Hollis McCarthy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Hollis can bring the characters to life in a way your mind can't. Supremely talented narrator.


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

    This book is a laugh a minute.

    I wanted something light and entertaining, and this series delivers. Although I am envious of the ready access to goodies that don't exist in my world.

    "Great addition to the series"

    I love the world of Nocturne Falls and always look forward to visiting it again. Jayne's adventures with Grayson, Cooper and the imp had me laughing out loud. Hollis McCarthy's narration was superb and added the perfect touch to the story.

    "Miss Frost Ices the Imp"
    What made the experience of listening to Miss Frost Ices the Imp: A Nocturne Falls Mystery the most enjoyable?

    The narrator - Hollis McCarthy does an amazing job of bringing each different character its own voice and bringing them to life in your mind,


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the entire story, the author has written a fun mystery that keeps you guessing and the narrator brings it to life with the characteristics and voices she gives to each character. I think my favourite character is Spider the talking cat.


    What about Hollis McCarthy’s performance did you like?

    She didn't get her voices mixed up within the many characters and she was very expressive throughout her performance


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Frost bitten


    Any additional comments?

    A fun story that is bought to life by the narrators efforts.

    "Happy I bought it"
    What made the experience of listening to Miss Frost Ices the Imp: A Nocturne Falls Mystery the most enjoyable?

    So glad it lives up to my expectations from listening to the first book in the series.


    Which character – as performed by Hollis McCarthy – was your favourite?

    Still Juniper. Minor character she might be but she still appeals.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, my commutes are only so long so it got listened to in roughly hour-long sections, twice a day.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm now impatient for the next one to come out.
