Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Brilliant narration!"

    I already loved this story and Derrick McClain's narration is brilliantly spot on. His Sebastian IS Sebastian. He captures the nuances of this character and brings him to life in a wonderful way. As for his Calvin? Who knew Derrick could do sexy so well! That deeper, huskier voice was an unexpected delight. Cannot wait for the next audiobook in this series.

    Story
    "One of the best audio's hands down"
    Any additional comments?

    I read this book when it first came out and simple loved it. Love the narrator's voice so when I saw it became an audio, it was a perfect choice.

    Ms. Poe, does a wonderful job bringing everyone to life for us, not just the events of the story, but the sub story, to feeling each person has, why the are having them, even if they aren't the main focus.
    From the parrot that has something to share to Maggie that just loves. To Neil and Cal and the rest of the crew.
    And Derrick, the narrator does such an amazing job with all the different voices, from the whiny, to the women and everyone in between.
    Now I've read book two, so can't wait to hear it!

    "Did not live up to my expectations"

    Neither the story nor the narration really kept me interested in this book. I finished it, because it wasn't awful, but it wasn't that good. The story could have been much creepier, but was rushed. Sebastian was a whiny baby sometimes, and his feelings about Neil seemed shallow. I'm not sure Calvin was aware of how immature Seb would turn out to be. The narration was somewhat annoying to me. Mr. McClain had an odd gasping way of speaking that detracted from the story. It seemed to work for Seb, because it made him sound as immature as I thought he was, but it was somewhat annoying the rest of the time.

    "I wish I had known what I was getting into..."

    ...I now know more about homosexual sex than I ever wanted to know. And the storyline wasn't too swift. Not one I finished.

    Story
    "main character so obnoxious, I rooted for killer"

    I hated this book so much, it led to my first written review. I want to save others from wasting time and money.

    Sebastian Snow, a whiny, slow witted selfish cheater takes the TSTL trope to unprecedented levels.

    And, I don't usually mine Insta-love, but this was ridiculous. I'm not sure which character was worse: Calvin, who throws all integrity and professionalism out the window. or Sebastian who blames every single relationships problem on his ex, Neil (who is denounced for such horrible offenses as preferring a new BMW to a used car).

    in fact, every single pro of Calvin is framed in terms of contrasting to Neil, giving Sebastian the emotional depth of a teenager. By the end, I was congratulating Neil on dodging s bullet.

    the mystery is okay, but quite frankly, if Sebastian had acted like any normal, functioning human being, it would have been solved much earlier without more blood shed and desctruction.

    I was disappointed the book didn't end with Sebastian being sued and/or arrested for obstruction of justice, and Calvin undergoing an internal investigation.

    two awful, idiotic characters who deserve each other

    Story
    "Had potential"

    Unfortunately like many misguided authors , this one also couldn't help herself from adding in just enough unnecessary tidbits of animal cruelty to ruin the story and make it impossible for me at least ,to continue. I was enjoying the story and the narration very much so it was all the more disappointing that I had to stop.

    "Superior M/M fiction"

    Really enjoyed this. Excellent, tight, original, engaging plot. Great complex primary and secondary characters. Very entertaining. Could not stop listening. Will definitely listen to/read anything else this author writes.

    Cheers!

    Story
    "I'm not a mystery fan - but this was very good!"

    I have to admit that I am not a mystery fan and so my critique of this story is more heavily weighted on the "romance" side of things than the mystery. I think, like Mary, that the mystery was pretty engaging and that fans of Poe will probably love diving into this story for all it's bloody goodness.

    The fact that Neil is still part of Sebastian's life at the beginning of the story made me a bit uncomfortable, and that, coupled with how - relatively - quickly he went from Calvin being a new lover to "in love" with Calvin - didn't sit well with my sentimental heart. The initial love scene between them put a bad taste in my mouth for the rest of the story- unfortunately - and I never did warm to these two as a couple. I'm a sap and I just can't help it!

    In any case, I really enjoyed Derrick's narration. He is so easy to listen to, the sound quality excellent and he has excellent timing- clearly understanding the importance as it applies to both humor and suspense. He shows a great breadth in characterization, too. He made both a convincing nerd in Sebastian and growly Alpha in Calvin - as well as some very creative secondary characters that included women! Well done!

    So for the writing, mystery, romance - I'd give this a 3 of 5 stars and the narration 5 of 5 stars to round up to an overall experience of 4 of 5 stars
