Review - The Mystery of the Bones by C.S. Poe

My rating:

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t read the previous books in the series, there are some potential spoilers about how they turned out in this review. It’s been a year since antique dealer Sebastian met police detective Calvin in the series of crimes recounted in The Mystery of Nevermore. After the last mystery gets him shot, Sebastian has vowed to leave the detective work to Calvin and focus on planning their upcoming wedding.

Review - The Mystery of the Moving Image by C.S. Poe

My rating:

It’s a typical day at Sebastian’s antique shop when there’s a delivery that turns out to be a rare device from the earliest days of the film industry. At first, the only mystery is who sent the extremely valuable item, but this is Sebastian Snow, and nothing is every that simple. The questions pile up as fast as the dead bodies, which as usual doesn’t make Calvin’s life any easier.

Review - The Mystery of the Curiosities by C.S. Poe

My rating:

Things are going rather well for Sebastian Snow. His relationship with detective Calvin Snow is gong along nicely, and the shop is doing well. Unfortunately, the calm is shattered, literally, when someone throws a brick through the front window of the Emporium. That begins a series of escalating events, which includes murders and bombings, that Sebastian can’t help but investigate, despite the warnings and pleadings of Calvin. In this second outing for “Snow and Winter”, the dynamic of the couple is now firmly in place, so it’s mostly all about the mystery.

Review - The Mystery of Nevermore by C.S. Poe

My rating:

Sebastian Snow is a mildly successful antiques dealer in New York City. His main frustration in life is dealing with his extreme light sensitivity and his closeted boyfriend, who is a police officer. All that changes one morning when Sebastian opens his shop to discover a bad smell, which he finally figures out is coming from what appears to be a rotting heart under the floorboards. It’s the start of a mystery that turns Sebastian’s life upside down, and introduces him to Detective Duncan Winter.
