Jayne Frost is a winter elf, Jack Frost's daughter, Santa Claus's niece, heir to the Winter Throne, and now private investigator. Needing someone he can trust, her father sends her to Nocturne Falls to find out why employees at a 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.

Quite naturally, Bubba's got another problem. The woman he likes is missing. Folks around Pegramville don't have an inkling whether Bubba done did anything this time. In fact, Bubba doesn't know what to think, but he is plumb dedicated on finding Willodean Gray, through fair means or foul. It will take a trip to the big city of Dallas, a run-in with an unstable superhero called The Purple Singapore Sling, a kidnapping by a Dallas crime lord, and a headlong hunt for a devious individual who snatched the fair sheriff's deputy to figure out which end is up.

I loved this book!!! I love all of the Bubba books I have read so far. But finally being able to listen to one for the first time was fantastic!! Finally hearing what the characters sound like is so funny!!
The narrator did a fantastic job! The storyline was great! And I am happy that they finally give some background info on Willodean's background and introduce her family.

Liked the book. Narrative was good. Loved the impressions. The sisters were a hoot. I'm glad more authors are using Maine Coon cats in their books. They are so cool.

The only thing worse than living in a haunted house is somebody trying to make you the next ghost. When Elise takes a position at spooky old Montgomery Manor as companion to her friend Lavina's great aunt, she's expecting an easy job for the holidays. What she doesn't expect are dead bodies, ghosts and a murderer who's picked her as the next target.

I loved the book. I was born in the 60's. And to hear the language from back then took me back. I had never listened to an audible book before. It was great. The narrator Beth Roeg did a great job with all of the characters.
