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.
Christmas is over, the new year has begun, and life is thankfully slowing down for Jayne, giving her more time to chill with her new guy. That is until Myra Grimshaw’s death reveals the elderly fae had a strange obsession with Jayne’s royal family and an unauthorized collection of exclusive winter elf objects. Including one very questionable snow globe. Then a whiteout of magical proportions snows the town in, and unraveling the mystery of Myra and the objects becomes job number one. Especially when Jayne suspects one of those objects is behind the dangerous creatures now roaming the town’s streets.
Things take a chilling turn when one of Jayne’s dearest friends is kidnapped, and rescuing her means cracking the secrets of Myra’s past. But when Jayne discovers blood really is thicker than water, her own life is suddenly on thin ice. Can she save the town and her crown?
Would you try another book from Kristen Painter and/or Hollis McCarthy?
What did you like best about this story?
The constant humor
Could you see Miss Frost Braves the Blizzard: A Nocturne Falls Mystery being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Any additional comments?
I'm confused. Jayne has two guys who want to be her one & only. We get great insight into their characters and the rivalry between them. Then this 3rd guy pops in and we get nothing? Did I miss something?

Another great story by Kristen Painter. I have never read/listened to a book by her that was not great. This time due to a snow globe accident the North Pole spills over into Nocturne Falls when Yetis come through a portal because of the broken snow globe. They bring havoc to Noturne Falls. First Birdie is kidnapped and then Buttercup changes places with her because she can take the cold better than better. The Yetis make her queen but they have a awful plan for Buttercup. Can Jayne, Sin and all the crew from Nocturne Falls work to get rid of the Yeti? Jack Frost, the Sandman and Santa Claus come to help out as well. Will they all be able to bring Nocturne Falls back to its normal state? Great book must read or listen.

I almost gave up on this series. I enjoyed the first two books and really didn't like the next two. But this book brought back all the things I had previously liked. Jayne seems to be a much better person in this one. She actually cares about her new guy, his feelings and his life instead of just using him. She actually does some things that are quite noble and self-sacrificing. The new guy is perfect to the point of being unrealistic, but it's a supernatural romance so why not...
The story was another nice surprise. There were some fun twists and the plot was interesting.
The narrator did a good job as usual, narrating Jayne as somewhat immature, but overall well-intentioned.
Can't wait for the next book. I loved this storyline, just like each book it's unique and wonderful. Love the narrator, perfect character voicing, pacing, inflection and perfect voice for Jane Frost.
lots of fun easy listen worth the money
so ready for the next one.... great story line that keeps the town alive.
Another great book by a wonderful author. I had a hard time putting it down even on the 5th time reading it.
I just adore this series, and was happy there was a new addition, I was not disappointed! I hope to hear more about Jayne and Nocturne falls in the future.
When an old lady die and winter elf things are found in her home the question is she a winter elf and if so how did no one know. But when a snowglobe break an a snow storm come the town needs help from the north pole.
What a twist on small blue furry critters! Miss Frost finding a blizzard tough makes for a fun plot. I've cycled through a couple milder Michigan blizzards over 10 miles each way. At night. I wouldn't do so for fun. These critters sound like polar ewoks.
I like Kristen Painter's Nocturne Falls books, particularly the Jayne Frost books. Ms. Painter has created a fantasy universe and it's a lot of fun. Hollis McCarthy is able to do a funny little elven tone as she does Jayne's voice and - well it works so well. I'm less happy with narrator BJ Harrison because he tends to over-enunciate everything and I find that distracting for the first few chapters. (otherwise he does fine)
The stories themselves are light mysteries involving the various supernatural inhabitants of Nocturne Falls, Georgia. I recommend them very highly, if light and silly and romantic is your jam.
I do have a bone to pick with whoever owns the Nocturne Falls franchise though. And that is: it has really become a franchise. There are dozens of books out there now. Most of them are very short and many of them are written by different authors - all taking place is this magical small town. It's a problem because some of the short books (1-3 hours) cost as much as $10.95 (or a credit) and there will be details or characters in them that are referenced in the larger "main" books. You either have to shell out too much capital or remain in the dark about some characters when they turn up later.
Wouldn't a compendium of the shorter books be more fair to fans? Doesn't this bother anybody else?
Would you listen to Miss Frost Braves the Blizzard: A Nocturne Falls Mystery again? Why?
