The Mystery of Nevermore

Snow & Winter: Book #1


It’s Christmas, and all Sebastian Snow wants is for his business to make money and to save his floundering relationship with CSU detective, Neil Millett. But when Snow’s Antique Emporium is broken into and a heart is found under the floorboards, Sebastian can’t let the mystery rest.

He soon finds himself caught up in murder investigations that echo the macabre stories of Edgar Allan Poe. To make matters worse, Sebastian’s sleuthing is causing his relationship with Neil to crumble, while at the same time he’s falling hard for the lead detective on the case, Calvin Winter. Sebastian and Calvin must work together to unravel the mystery behind the killings, despite the mounting danger and sexual tension, before Sebastian becomes the next victim.
In the end, Sebastian only wants to get out of this mess alive, and live happily ever after with Calvin.

With that being said, I did obviously enjoy the book.  I’m not really an audio fan, but once I started listening to the book, I literally couldn’t stop.  Be it the author or the narrator, I was so drawn into the story that I couldn’t do anything else but listen." - Crystal's Many Reviewers
