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.

When she buys a sealed box at an estate sale and cat-related circumstances cause that box to be opened, life in Nocturne Falls starts to go haywire. Jayne has no choice but to figure out what she unleashed and how to recapture it.

But Jayne suspects the woman behind the box is hiding something. Something that could cause a town resident serious trouble. Or worse, to lose their life.
With the help of her two favorite guys, a sexy vampire and a hot summer elf, and a few new friends, Jayne tackles what feels like an impossible mission. And winds up almost iced herself.

Book 2! Couldn't wait. ;) Had to check it out nowwwwww. 

We continue with Jayne. She is now the manager of the Nocturne Falls store. Just add that hat to her collection. She is also a Winter elf, Jack Frost's daughter, Santa's niece, heir to the Winter Throne, and a sort of PI. Another mystery lands on her lap after she buys a sealed box at an estate sale. Thanks to her cat, the box is opened and life at Nocturne Falls starts going a little haywire. Jayne has no choice but to find out what was unleashed, recapture it, and fix everything. 

Ooooo that kitty cat. LOLL. Sure did cause a lot of strife for Jayne and the town!!! But I love that dang cat. He is so cute! 

And I love Jayne. I am beginning to get annoyed with her though. She just needs to officially date the vamp. He is hot and he's Irish. No contest there sister! I get she doesn't want to "date" anyone yet and she made it clear to the both of them and they are okay...for now...but at some point she will have to pick or let them go. I'm all for Woman Power and just doing the casual thing...100%...but I know she is going to have a hard time picking....unless she doesn't pick any of them. Maybe she will meet the ONE? I am curious! But I'm okay with this love triangle for NOW, because she has made it clear that she is not interested, fully, in either of them and she doesn't want to commit. She's having fun in this new town. I'm cool with that too. I just hope we don't full into a pure love triangle and it gets all angsty. *fingers crossed*

I love Jayne's friends. 

I love this town. 

This series is so much fun! I can't wait for book 3! *trying to be patient*

The mystery was fun but I wasn't a big fan of the baddie and how that got resolved. Honestly? Too easily resolved. Sure. It is a "cozy" mystery, but the who and why was written on the wall. Meh. 

The narrator is fantastic. She is perfect for the characters and the story. 

Overall, I enjoyed this. The mystery was a little too easily resolved for my liking, but I still enjoyed watching Jayne fix everything. I also do worry that we may have an angsty love triangle in our future...I hope not, but we shall see. For now, I'm happy that Jayne is just enjoying her life and dating casually. I'll stamp this with 4 stars.
