Publisher's Summary

It’s been a full year since the mystery that brought together antique shop owner and part-time amateur sleuth Sebastian Snow with homicide detective Calvin Winter. Patience, sanity, and their very lives have been put to the test, but love has persevered. Although Sebastian is now New York City’s best-known busybody, he’s finished with crime solving and wants nothing more than to plan a romantic budget wedding.  

Then Snow’s Antique Emporium receives a decapitated human head in the mail and the holidays are gory once again. Sebastian patently disregards the mystery of a lifetime because he is done with death and danger — but the killer escalates. Before Sebastian knows it, his closest friends and family are dragged into a series of horrific murders with antiquated clues hinting to the infamous Victorian American Bones Wars. 

The clock is ticking to recover a long-lost artifact linked to paleontologist Edward Drinker Cope and to capture a murderer. But it’s not Sebastian who may become the next target — it’s Calvin.

Good, Solid Ending To The Series

I have enjoyed Seb and Cal's journey and hate to let them go. We get another solid mystery and spend time with favorite secondary characters. For me though, I didn't get enough of Seb and Cal together. And avoiding spoilers, I will just say I wanted more detail in the ending so was left feeling it was a little wanting. It is hard to change narrators during the series but Wyatt Baker does a good job. Overall, definitely worth a credit. I will miss these characters and hope we get to revisit them sometime.

Sluth Seb is at it again

Super Sluth Sebastian is at it again. This time the reward is much higher. It is up to Sebastian to save Calvin. This book is just as awesome as the rest of them.

WOW!! This was fantastic!!

This was fantastic!! Sebastian and Calvin are dream worthy! Sebastian owns an antique shop, one day he is sent a package with human remains in it. Calvin is a detective and Sebastian's fiancee. When Calvin is kidnapped, Sebastian must work to solve the mystery of the bones to find him before he dies. This was excellent!! Wyatt Baker did an excellent with the narration!

Masterfully done

I never thought Sebastian could ever come to life the way Wyatt makes him so. As someone who is absolutely enamored by this series and revists the books often, the emotion i felt from his delivery made it feel like the first time! I laughed. I cried. I was completely sucked into the case. Stunning work!

Love this series!

This is the final book in the series say it isn't so!) , and it's a beffiting end. Seb has promised not to get involved with anymore murders, until he has no choice in the matter - a severed head will do that! Seb has a real vested interest in solving the mystery .... Cal. Neil, Seb's ex, redeems himself and there may be a hint of him getting his own story (ok, so I'm hoping!). CS Poe really knows how to write a good mystery - I couldn't figure out the culprit, not until it was obvious. Love this book and the series as a whole. Wyatt Baker really did a great job with the narration - his snarky Seb is a pleasure and the stoic Cal is spot on. As the narrator to finish out the series, he ihas been a great choice!

The Mystery of the Bones

I have loved and enjoyed the Snow and Winter series. Book 4 didn’t disappoint, and in fact exceeded my expectations. I have read the book but hearing Seb and Cal brought to life was a different and fabulous experience. CS Poe brought the writing/story magic and Wyatt Baker gave the two life. You could feel the passion, the love and the pain between Snow and Winter. The inflections and intonation gives the listener the feeling of being a direct spectator in the story while it’s in progress. This is quickly becoming a favorite narrator of mine. And of course this author is a one click for me.
