Publisher's Summary

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.

When the Sandman comes to Santa's Workshop, the shop Jayne manages, to do his first ever book signing, it's a major event. He's kind of a supernatural celebrity and she needs to keep him happy.

All is well until trouble shows up at the party thrown in his honor. Trouble in the form of Luna Nyx, the Mistress of Nightmares and his creepy counterpart. The Sandman's assistant says Luna is dangerous, and Jayne believes it when her dreams turn dark.

Can Jayne keep the Sandman safe from this gothic goddess? Or will Luna's threats put them both to sleep for good?

Another five star winner!!!!!

this is book three in the Jayne Frost books. This was just as great as the first two and all the other Nocturne books. I am so glad i found this author. She is totally "the bomb." This time Jayne had to save the Sand man. With help from her friends and her men, she solved the mystery of what was going on with the Sandman and the dreams they were having and when he went missing, I look forward to the next book. My only negative thing is i wish she could pick between Cooper and Grayson. My pick is Grayson. But i am a vampire girl myself. Love her cat too.

Our Favorite Supernatural Super Sleuth Is Back....

….. For another chilling mystery that's giving Jayne nightmares!

While this story is more of the same, fans of the Jayne Frost series will certainly not be disappointment. There's new characters, world building, surprising twist, and a brand new mystery to solve. The best part, we get more interaction with Spider, the most adorable talking cat! Grayson and Cooper are still competing for Jayne's affections, but this takes place in the background and their relationship development is not the focus in this story.

Hollis McCarthy delivers another amazing performance! There's lots of characters in this series, and Hollis does a great job with them all. She makes it easy to recognize and distinguish between the different characters, It's always a pleasure listening to Hollis narrate.

I really enjoyed this latest addition to the series and realize this is not a PNR; however, my romantic at heart self is ready for Jayne to choose either Grayson or Cooper. Kudos Kristen and Hollis for a job well done! Looking forward to the next story in either series.

I love these Nocturne Falls books!

The characters are fun and interesting and the author keeps the story intriguing ! It is light enough not to be too serious yet enough mystery to stay focused!

I really love this series!

This is the 3rd book in the series and they just keep getting better! I really enjoyed this story. Jayne is getting settled into Nocturne Falls and being the manger of the toy store when her father tells her that Tempus Sanders aka the Sandman has written a book, and they want to launch it in her store. Hopefully nothing will go wrong when he arrives, but of course something does. Hopefully Jayne can fix it with the help of Greyson and Cooper! I can't wait for the next book since Mrs. Painter left us with quite an ending!! I really enjoy Hollis McCarthy's reading of this story, it's nice to have a voice to such a great character!

💘 Nocturnal Falls

I love the Nocturnal Falls series. This story as well as all the rest are just light hurted and fun to listen to. Between the romances and the mysteries, the stories these are just great for that needed downtime that you get.

Love Miss Frost and Hollis McCarthy

Any additional comments?

I love Kristen Painters' Jayne Frost in her Nocturne Falls Mysteries, and Hollis McCarthy does an excellent job narrating.

There is no doubt when Jayne is speaking (or thinking) and when any of her friends are, particularly Cooper or Greyson.

Nocturne Falls is a small town in Georgia, where they celebrate Halloween 365 days a year; Jayne runs the local Santa's Workshop Store. But Jayne is more than a store manager, she's The Winter Princess; daughter to Jack Frost, niece to Santa.

As the heiress to the Winter Elves throne, its amazing the number of adventures (and misadventures) she falls into.

You'll love how she Saves the Sandman, and Nocturne Falls.

Frosty good fun

The continuing adventures of Princess Jane are entertainment at its best. Cooper and Greyson continue the love triangle in a gentlemanly way.

very cute

This review is for the series, Books 1, 2 & 3. In two words -- very cute. I had previously read "The Vampire's Mail Order Bride" and was in the mood for something very light. Ms. Painter doesn't disappoint. I like that the series continues with the same characters, since they all take place in the same town, but with different mysteries. It kind of reminds me of "Murder She Wrote" but with young supernaturals. Or the "Sookie Stackhouse" novels, but without sex and gore. Anyway, I definitely recommend this series is you're looking for an easy, fun read.

Excellent!

Any additional comments?


I loved this book! I felt Jayne and Garrett weren't in sync so much this book and I'm still hoping she chooses Cooper in the end! Loved meeting new characters in this as well, although there was a real cliff hangar at the end! I can't wait for the next book to see what comes of it!

Another great visit to Nocturne Falls

This is the third book in the Jayne Frost series. They take places in Nocturne Falls but are different from the books in the Nocturne Falls series. This series stars Jayne Frost, Winter Elf, Winter Princess and Santa Claus’ niece. She is sent to the family store in Nocturne Falls to investigate members of staff that have gone missing in unusual circumstances. After solving the mystery she stays on managing the shop and living in Nocturne Falls.
The beauty of these books is that while they are different from the Nocturne Falls series, they still include the usual Nocturne Falls characters and places.
The Sandman and his assistant Olive are in town to promote his new children’s story through Santa’s Workshop (Jayne’s shop.) You would imagine that sleeping in the same building as the Sandman would promote peaceful sleep with wonderful dreams, but for Jayne this isn’t the case. Buttercup and Juniper tell Jayne of their amazing dreams full of peace and beauty but Jayne is having horrific nightmares that have her waking full of fear.
This is a well built, fun, bit spooky, supernatural, cozy mystery that has a well paced build up. I really did enjoy it. I have been careful to avoid spoilers but suffice to say there are surprises and adventure galore.

Spider and Jayne

Jayne Frost is back along with a few friends including the adorable Spider, her talking cat. Not only is she dating two of the best-looking men in town but she’s also right at the heart of yet another crime. Who knew a winter elf could have so much fun?

I am a little addicted to Spider. Jayne is great fun, but the cat is my favourite character. This story is yet another easy read mystery with a light and breezy feel. The magic and mystery are charming as are the characters. I must admit that I can’t wait to find out who Jayne chooses out of her eager dates but my money is on the vampire.
