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?

    Love listening to audiobooks, and being swept away by a great story and narrator. It's my therapy, and I need it daily!

    Story
    "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

    Story
    "A Frosty Mystery!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Miss Frost Solves a Cold Case to be better than the print version?

    I only download audio books, so I cannot answer this question. I love audio book versions better.


    What other book might you compare Miss Frost Solves a Cold Case to and why?

    Any of the other books by Kristen Painter. I love her style of writing fresh and awesome concepts of the paranormal.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Way too many to pick just one - however, I loved the fact that Miss Frost loved to take chances in her investigation.


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

    Well as I have told Kristen Painter in any of my reviews of Nocturne Falls - it could be a TV show. Tag line: Frosty times at Nocturne Falls!


    Any additional comments?

    Well I am sure that everyone that reads these comments, probably get tired of me saying this could be a TV show, but it could. The concept of Nocturne Falls is awesome.

    Story
    "A Pure Christmas Miracle"
    Would you listen to Miss Frost Solves a Cold Case again? Why?

    Yes, the story is fun, and Hollis is a great narrator.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    yes. You don't know until the very end who done it.


    What about Hollis McCarthy’s performance did you like?

    Her voice inflection is spot on. She brings the characters to life and stays true to each one.


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

    yes. I was upset I couldn't.


    Any additional comments?

    A must listen to.

    "Miss Frost Solves a Cold Case: Jayne Frost, Book 1"

    I am a huge fan of the Nocturne Falls series so I was pleased to see this spin-off story. The Jayne Frost story can be enjoyed on it's own but reading the other series definitely adds to the experience. I really enjoy Jayne's snark and unique personality. The mystery was nicely done too. I am hoping that this story turns into a series...

    The narrator did a wonderful job bringing this story to life.

    "Smart and funny"

    Jayne is smart, funny, and doesn't get into a lot of the self doubt that other heroines go through. The pace was good and the overall book was entertaining. A great start to hopefully a long series. Nocturne falls sounds like home.

    Story
    "A Frosty Good Mystery!"

    I am a huge fan of Kristen Painter's Nocturne Falls Series of books and was excited when I read that she was doing a spin off series featuring the Santa's Workshop Toy Store in Nocturne Falls. This book is brilliantly written and Hollis McCarthy brings Jayne and all of the characters to life.

    Jayne Frost is not like the characters that you have read or heard about in the Original series. She is an Elf. A Winter Elf to be exact and the daughter of Jack Frost, the Winter King. She is sent undercover to investigate the missing elves from Santa's Workshop. Over the past 4 years, 6 elves have mysteriously disappeared from the toy store leaving only a resignation letter and the last elf to leave left behind all of his belongings and a kitten. With the help of a vampire and a Summer Elf, Jayne has to find out who is behind the missing elves and why they are disappearing. Will she find out in time or is she the next elf to go missing?

    "Shivering good tale"

    I have been a fan of Nocturn Falls from the beginning and I have to say this one had suspense, fun characters and a villain you didn't see coming. The idea that Santas' daughter investigating missing elves was a lot of fun. I recommend this audiobook/book to anyone who likes a fun read.

    "Winter is coming... To Nocturne Falls!"

    This book was fantastic! I really love the original series Nocturne Falls that this is a spin off from, and I really loved this book. I did not want to stop listening!! In this story we meet Jayne Frost, the Winter King's daughter. She lives in the NP ( North Pole) and works for Uncle Kris.. as in Santa Claus! Some employees have gone missing from the Toy Store in Nocturne Falls and her father as asked her to look into the disappearances. I love the fact that these are all new characters, but we still have the Nocturne Falls characters in the background, Jayne even interacts with a few. I cannot wait for the next book in the series. I really hope it is soon!!

    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

    Story
    "OK but it's NOT Nocturne Falls"
    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!
