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. But none of that matters at the moment, because Jayne is headed back to the North Pole to visit her family, and leaving everyone’s favorite werewolf, Birdie Caruthers, to watch her cat, Spider.

The shots came quickly, silently, and with deadly accuracy. Within seconds, three people were dead at Central Park's ice skating rink. The victims: a talented young skater, a doctor, and a teacher. As random as random can be. Eve Dallas has seen a lot of killers during her time with the NYPSD, but never one like this. After reviewing security videos, it becomes clear that the victims were killed by a sniper firing a tactical laser rifle, who could have been miles away when the trigger was pulled.

If you could sum up Nice Girls Don't Bite Their Neighbors in three words, what would they be?

Satisfies the appetite!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Nice Girls Don't Bite Their Neighbors?

I have to say it was finally getting rid of Grandma Ruthie!!

Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, I have and I really enjoy her narrations. She is very adept at keeping each characters voice the same through each book. I think she is very talented.

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

Oh, I did! This is one of the reasons long-haul trucking is so enjoyable now--excellent books to treat the ears!!
