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' 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.

With the heartfelt promise that all will be well, Birdie follows Jayne’s instructions to the letter. Unfortunately, that doesn’t stop Spider from getting into trouble.It takes the help of a gentlemen friend (and a few others) for Birdie to make things right again. But not before her love life takes a very interesting turn....

Cute short story

Was a fun little listen. The Jayne Frost and Nocturne Falls characters are fun to get to know.

Great story

These books never disapoint and this short story is no exception. I love Spider and Birdie and was glad to see them in a story. I am looking forward to seeing where her relationship goes and hope that she gets her happy ever after.

Birdie's fright!

Losing a princess's cat is the last thing Birdie thought she would do especially after carefully reading the directions for taking care of Spider. Terrified that princess Jane will have a fit when she finds out that spiders missing, Birdie and Friends go out in search of him. Of course, they find out finding a black cat in the snow, which should be an easy task, can be a bit complicated.

This is an easy read and funny addition to the main series. If you get the audio book, Mr. Harrison sounds a bit different from the other person who is reading Spider, the cat, so don't expect that to sound quite the same. If you can get over that hump you'll be set.

Funny, cute, with a dash of romance!

I really liked this book. It was much shorter than any book I have listened to before. But just because it was short, doesn't mean I didn't get just as much enjoyment out of it. I thought it was funny and cute, with a dash of romance. In all honesty I have no idea if I was spouse to listen to other books before this one... though even if I was, I didn't have any problem following the story with all the characters. Which I loved!

Note on the narrator:
I thought he did a wonderful job. I could always tell who was speaking at any given time.

great character development

I loved this short novel. Like all of her novels I wished it would just keep going. Even though I read the big book that comes after.

Enjoyable and refreshing

I love this series and Ms Birdie is fantastic. This book was so much fun to listen to that I have listened to it over and over again! I can't wait for more stories including Ms Birdie. The only negative is that I wish the narrator for this book was the same as for the other books in this series. It would have made it even better.

Loved it!

I loved this short story. I love Birdie in the other books as well, but they’re always too short for me (Birdie’s parts I mean) I liked that this story had more of her in it. I especially liked that Spider spoke to her. Now Jane will have someone that she can talk to about Spider and they not think that she is crazy. The only disappointing thing about this book is...is that it was too short. I would have loved to hear another 3 hours. Birdie is a fantastic character that makes you wish that Nocturne Falls was real so you could visit and stop in for a chat with Birdie while eating cobbler ;-D

New side of Nocturne Falls

I love this short about Birdie. I am glad that we as readers and listeners get to see another side of the characters that we have grown to love.

Brilliant!

I loved this novella! It was fun getting Birdies pov. Birdie is an awesome character and I'm glad she's going to give Jack a chance! Loved the interactions with her and Spider as well!

I love Birdie

I love this side series to Nocturne Falls, all of our favourite characters make guest appearances.

Birdie is one of my favourite characters from the Nocturne Falls/Jane Frost series and its great for her to have her own book.

The narration is very easy listening.
