The Heart of Frost

North Pole City Tales: Book  2 | Sequel to Mending Noel


At the North Pole, no one is more powerful and feared than the Prince of Frost. As general of the toy soldier army, Jack Frost has been working extra hard to put away the villainous Mouse King once and for all. If that isn’t taxing enough, Jack has to deal with the scandal and gossip brought on by news of his relationship with Rudy Rein Dear, captain of the Rein Dear Squadron, which hit headlines last holiday season. Lucky for Jack, his reputation has managed to deter any foolish attempts to stir up trouble. At least until now.

When someone sabotages Rudy’s plane during a test run a few weeks before Christmas, Jack is determined to find the culprit by any means necessary. The closer he gets to finding answers, the more difficulty he has not falling back to his icy ways. Has the Mouse King stepped up his game in order to throw Jack off his, or is someone a little closer to home behind the attempt on Rudy’s life? Either way, Jack has every intention of delivering a Christmas they won’t soon forget, even if it means losing the newfound warmth in his heart.




These characters charm and delight their way through this love-conquers-all Christmas story in which the author takes some of the most beloved holiday traditions and images and makes them her own. From the beginning, to the exciting climax, and on to the final bow, Charlie Cochet delivers a cozy and heartwarming romance.

The Novel Approach | Read the full review here.

The world Charlie Cochet created is wonderfully imaginative, and her light humorous twists on words and phrases that we usually connect with Christmas stories are given to us in little nibbles of humor throughout this tale.  From Rudy excusing himself to go to the little elf’s room, aka the men’s room, and his and Jack’s worry about freezing their baubles off with a romp in the snow, her creativity shines through.

Charlie Cochet puts us smack dab in the middle of North Pole City. Her imagery creates a fantasyland of sumptuous delights filled with rich palaces and sparkling ballrooms. Then she surrounds all of this wonder in a love so full and deep that you can’t help but believe.

I loved this story and thought it was a very fitting one for Jack and Rudy. I recommend this to those who love a Christmas mystery, saving the one you love from themselves, cute elves, a strong abiding love, great characters and a very happy Christmas ending.

This is a fun seasonal story…  There is a certain feel I get with seasonal romance such as this, and it is enchanting as much as it is humor filled.
