Sintesi dell'editore

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?

Huh?

Would you try another book from Kristen Painter and/or Hollis McCarthy?

Yes

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?

yes

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?

Hollis McCarthy is PERFECT for this light series!

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?
