Snow & Winter: Book Three
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.
Antiquing is Murder
The Mystery of the Moving Image by C.S. Poe was given to me in exchange for an honest review. In the 3rd installment of the Snow & Winter series I loved this book. Snow is an antique dealer who has an affinity for mysteries and finds himself in the middle of them more often than not. Winter, Snow’s significant other and Homicide Detective has found himself in the middle of these mysteries while trying to keep Snow out of trouble. The history behind the mystery in this book is truly intriguing and just fun. I love mysteries and this was book was wonderful. With the description of Snow’s color blindness I could actually see how he was seeing the world. And how the Emporium’s interior sound like something I w update love to visit on day. This book was a great combination of history, mystery and a dash of humor mixed in and I can’t wait for the next installment.
