It’s Christmas, and all antique dealer Sebastian Snow wants is for his business to make money and to save his floundering relationship with closeted CSU detective, Neil Millett. 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.
I really enjoyed 'The Mystery of Nevermore' it's C. S. Poe's first book in her 'Snow and Winter' series and I enjoyed this first time offering from a new author, so needless to say when the audio book was made available for review I was more than willing to take revisit the world of Sebastian Snow and Calvin Winter.
As tends to be the case with me, because I really enjoyed the book my original review is a bit on the longer side so here's the link for anyone who's curious...
The Mystery of Nevermore - original review
Derrick McClain is the narrator for this audiobook and over all he did a solid job with this one. His voices ticked all of my basic requirements they were consistent, unique for each individual and expressive with the added bonus that while in general Mr. McClain's voices worked for me, I really liked the voice that he put to Calvin Winter. Calvin's voice in the audiobook was a very close match to the Calvin who occupied my head when I first read this one.
So over all my rating for this one hasn't changed it's still a 4.5 star experience that I very much enjoyed and look forward to seeing where things go in future with this series.
