SUMMARY
It's summer in New York City, and antique shop owner Sebastian Snow is taking the next big step in his relationship with NYPD homicide detective, Calvin Winter: they're moving in together. What should have been a wonderful week of playing house and celebrating Calvin's birthday comes to an abrupt end when a mysterious package arrives at the Emporium.

Inside is a Thomas Edison Kinetoscope, a movie viewer from the nineteenth century, invented by the grandfather of modern cinema, W. K. L. Dickson. And along with it, footage of a murder that took place over a hundred years ago.

Sebastian resists the urge to start sleuthing, even if the culprit is long dead and there's no apparent danger. But break-ins at the Emporium, a robbery, and dead bodies aren't as easy to ignore, and Sebastian soon realizes that the century-old murder will lead him to a modern-day killer.

However, even with Sebastian's vast knowledge of Victorian America and his unrelenting perseverance in the face of danger, this may be the one mystery he won't survive.

This series is seriously addicting! Calvin and Sebastian are adorable and they are taking the next step in their relationship, moving in together. Sebastian receives a package to The Emporium, so naturally, he's curious. It's a movie viewer along with a film of a boxing match thought to be lost forever, and a bonus scene... a murder being committed a century ago. What Sebastian learns the hard way... some people are willing to kill for the footage.

It was great to get reacquainted with Sebastian's dad, Neil, and Quinn... but a new player comes in, and he's Calvin's ex. He brings out all the insecurities of Sebastian and it makes Sebastian endearing to me. Every book in this series is amazing and I can't wait to see where it goes. While each book could be read as a standalone, I personally would recommend reading them in order. Not only are they great stories, but it's also awesome to see the progression of each plot as it correlates to Calvin and Sebastian's relationship.
