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's niece, heir to the Winter Throne and now...private investigator. Sort of. Needing someone he can trust, her father sends her undercover to Nocturne Falls to find out why employees at the Santa's Workshop 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. Will her magic save her? Or will she come up cold?

I've been curious about this one. It always pops up as a book I might like sooooooooo I decided to finally give in and see if Audible was right. 

We follow Jayne Frost who is the daughter of Jack Frost, Santa's niece, and she is the heir to the Winter Throne. NOW she is a private investigator....sort of. Needing someone he can trust, Jack Frost sends her undercover to Nocturne Falls to find out why so many employees at the Santa's Workshop are going missing. Doing that requires her to disguise herself with magic and get to know the town and the people. She will come across an old flame, a sexy vamp, and a weird elevator that her boss says is strictly off-limits. The more she finds, the more questions that pop up. 

This was a ton of fun! I loved Jayne and this world. Sighs. I am suckered in now. Crap! haha. I already downloaded book 2. I will try and save it since I have other pressing audios, but I am tempted to just start it now ;) 

Jayne being magically undercover was genius. I loved that she got a chance to be herself and find true friendship. Being a princess and one of the elite can have its disadvantages. 

Lovveeddd that sexy vamp. I am totally rooting for him to steal Jayne's heart!

I loved her friends. They were fun. 

That cat is adorable! Funky name, but it works. 

The mystery was good. I had zero idea who, why, where. I applaud the author for stumping me until the very end. 

The narrator was fantastic. Her Irish, vamp voice was amazing. Perfect! 

Overall, I am suckered in now. This was really good. I was hooked from page one and I cannot wait to get to book 2. Highly recommend it. Fun story and fun characters. 5 stars from me!
