Book 2 of Snow & Winter
LGBTQ, Romantic Suspense/Mystery

Life has been pretty great for Sebastian Snow. The Emporium is thriving and his relationship with NYPD homicide detective, Calvin Winter, is everything he's ever wanted. With Valentine's Day around the corner, Sebastian's only cause for concern is whether Calvin should be taken on a romantic date. It's only when an unknown assailant smashes the Emporium's window and leaves a peculiar note behind, that all plans get pushed aside in favor of another mystery.

Sebastian is quickly swept up in a series of grisly yet seemingly unrelated murders. The only connection tying the deaths together are curiosities from the lost museum of P.T. Barnum. Despite Calvin's attempts to keep Sebastian out of the investigation, someone is forcing his hand, and it becomes apparent that the entire charade exists for Sebastian to solve. With each clue that'll bring him closer to the killer, he's led deeper into Calvin's official cases.

It's more than just Sebastian's livelihood and relationship on the line—it's his very life.

Oh, how I have missed Sebastian and Calvin! It has been too long, I tell ya! Sebastian and Calvin are now dating, and things are going well for them. Right until a brick comes flying through the window of the Emporium... sigh... and so the adventure begins!

Someone is going through Calvin's cold cases and leaving messages for Sebastian to solve the case, with each clue being about PT Barnum! With each clue being more interesting than the last, Sebastian and Calvin must race against the clock to stop the killer before the body count rises!

I absolutely loved this series! C.S. Poe's writing style leaves you wanting more with the mystery and the romance. Just when you think you know who the killer is, there's a twist! Sebastian is absolutely adorable, full of intelligence and sass! Calvin exudes confidence and intelligence. The two of them together are absolutely perfect. They have the perfect partnership. Also, meeting Sebastian's adorable father is the cherry on the cake. This story was so endearing, I immediately started re-reading it as soon as I finished.
