5.0 out of 5 starsAll Kinds of Paranormal Fun
Reviewed in the United States on June 10, 2019
I'm really liking this series. Jayne is the type of character you'd love to be friends with and as usual the world building in Painter's books is always a ton of fun. We meet some very interesting new characters in this book that I hope we get to see more of. The love triangle thing is kind of weird but at least there was an indication the guys aren't completely cool with it at the end (I just can't suspend belief far enough to think two guys who aren't seeing anyone else are completely cool with the same girl seeing both of them) and hopefully it's something that does get resolved as we continue on. I really don't want to get sucked into another Stephanie Plum/Ranger/Morelli/endless saga situation in another series. Fortunately the mysteries are like 90% of the story in the books in this series so the triangle isn't as intrusive as in other series. Speaking of the mystery, I thought it was really good in this one, even better than the last two. I highly recommend this series as well as the Nocturne Falls series.

This was a great book that really upped the stakes for Jayne. I love how she’s grown as a character and after the ending of this one am really looking forward to the next book.
A big plus in my opinion was that the love triangle was featured a lot less in this book. Either that or it was just written better into this story. One good thing is that both guys are starting to grow on me more and now I’m kind of worried that this means one of them will totally die or something.
The best part of this book had to be the introduction of a new rather scary type of monster and finding out a tad bit more about elementals. Saying that though I really really want to know more about this newish character’s story and much more about the elementals.
I loved how in control Jayne was here. You could tell she used her background more and was going to get things done.
The danger was elevated here and it really made the story fly by and then the end of the book shows that there will definitely be trouble ahead.
The Sandman is coming to Nocturne falls. Tempus Sanders has written a children's book guaranteed to put the kids to sleep. He is have a book signing hosted at Santa's Workshop with Jayne Frost trying to get everything organized. Luna Nyx, Sandman's ex wife (the Mistress of Nightmares) is in town to show her support for his new book. The only problem is practically the entire town's sleep patterns and dream cycles are being mess with. Now Jayne has to determine if Luna, the Sandman, or a possible third party is guilty, and also a way to put a stop to it before the Sandman's reputation is ruined.
I'm really enjoying this series from Kristen Painter. The first thee books have been a lot of fun, and I'm looking forward to the next of.
5.0 out of 5 starsPrincess Jayne Continues to Rock It
Reviewed in the United States on September 2, 2018
I appreciate the methodical process through which Jayne solves the mystery. Only have two negative comments. Jayne too quickly jumps to the negative side when something goes wrong -- such as she's going to be fired because the Sandman goes missing. I mean really, she is a smart business woman, well liked by all. She is successful. The almost automatic jump to losing her job and returning to the NP is a bit much. The second comment is what I see as a disconnect -- after the 3 hour involuntary nap everyone takes Jayne and Cooper talk to Olive in Chapter 17. Yet when the fact comes out later that Olive and the Sandman were seen wallinhg through town, Jayne raises no question on the timing.
Love all the Nocturne Falls books. Especially, the Jayne Frost series. They keep me thinking about how Jayne will handle each new problem she faces. Can't wait for a Christmas story. With everything going on in today's world, they offer me a brief time to unwind & recharge. As a "baby boomer," I remember when times where a little less hectic & in your face all of the time. Thank you for reminding me why I enjoyed reading as a teen-ager & young adult. Your descriptions are vivid & I can visualize how everything looks. Nocturne Falls reminds me of small towns in Northern Michigan & Hiawatha National Park in the U.P.
Well Jayne is trying to show everyone how she can handle running a store during a special promotion. I really enjoyed seeing Jayne prove herself to herself as well to her family. I also see she is always getting into some kind of trouble. I liked the sandman even though he was weird. I don’t get the hero or villain vibe from him.
5.0 out of 5 starsAnother great adventure for Jayne Frost in Nocturne Falls
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 3, 2016
Jayne Frost's latest adventures in Nocturne Falls have massive implications for the whole world; without the Sandman how will any of us ever sleep again?!
Miss Frost Saves The Sandman takes us back to our favourite town of supernaturals, Nocturne Falls, where a promotional appearance by The Sandman, to sell his new book, puts our heroine into high gear. With the reputation of the shop at stake Jayne does everything she can to make sure the event runs like clockwork. Unfortunately for Jayne and the other residents of the town, there are other forces at work with a very different agenda.
Once again despite the mystery centering around Jayne, the story involves many other characters from the town, whom we've come to know and love. And it's great to keep in their loop.
Interesting developments in this book were the introductions of elementals--supreme supernaturals, if you will, and a lightly touched on arrival for the Ellinghams, which I am desperate to read more about in future Nocturne Falls books.
A fantastic page turner that I couldn't read fast enough. The only downside being the wait I now have until the next book.
5.0 out of 5 starsAnother fantastic Jayne Frost read
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 20, 2016
I came over to this series from the Nocturne Falls series (which I loved). This is the third book in the Jayne Frost books and I have read each one now.
I found this book to be engaging, enjoyable and it flowed really well. There was enough mystery to keep me guessing and I love the characters in these books, new ones in this series and recurring Nocturne Falls characters.
This book was a delightful read and comes highly recommended from this reader.
Like the Nocturne Falls books and this was no exception. Funny in parts. Thought I knew where it was headed, and I was kind of right but not quite. Look forward to the next one, especially to read more of the Jayne/Cooper/Greyson triangle.
