Mini Book Review: Miss Frost Solves a Cold Case (Jayne Frost #1) by Kristen Painter

Hello Fellow Book Lovers. Today, I’m sharing my thoughts about Miss Frost Solves a Cold Case by Kristen Painter. The first book in her cosy paranormal mystery series, Jayne Frost.

Sometimes, when I read a book I don’t write a full review, I just write a paragraph or two to publish on Amazon and Goodreads; especially if it’s a book with thousands of reviews already. But I want to build up my blog to be THE place to go to for paranormal romance fans, so I should really post those smaller reviews on here too, right?

So, with that in mind, one with my review for …

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?

What did I think about Miss Frost Solves A Cold Case?

A Great Start to this Cosy Paranormal Mystery Series.

Kristen Painter is fast becoming a favourite author. I love her writing style and find her stories very easy to read. I can’t wait to read more of her books.

There were lots of aspects of this book I loved. The characters that Ms Painter has created for her fictional town of Nocturne Falls. Plus, the fact that this new series is set there too. I enjoyed the mystery element of the plot in this book. The twists and turns that we were taken on, the many clues and red herrings that we found along the way. Although I had guessed the big secret before it was revealed, I still found myself gripped, keen to keep reading.

I downloaded the Audible version of this book and was impressed with Hollis McCarthy’s performance. The pace of her narration was just right and I enjoyed her slight vocal variances for the dialogue of the different characters too.

There is absolutely no offensive content within these pages – language, violence or sex. Therefore, I can recommend it to lovers of charming, paranormal mystery tales who enjoy a sprinkling of humour and a bit of romance with a happy ever after ending.
