Loved CS Poe’s The Mystery of Nevermore

The Mystery of Nevermore (Snow & Winter, #1)The Mystery of Nevermore by C.S. Poe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely adored this book. CS Poe’s Sebastian Snow is a fantastic, well-developed character with quirks and intriguing motivations. I enjoyed his “home base” as an Antique dealer and his developing relationship with Detective Calvin Winter is going to be fantastic to watch in upcoming books. They had a great dynamic with enough push-pull to make things interesting. I really enjoyed reading this. I’m also very much looking forward to seeing what else CS Poe will be bringing to us in the future.

Fantastically great writer with gorgeous characters and a tight, nice plot. All the makings of a wonderful relationship between an author and readers.

    Loved tis story too. Loved revisiting the Edgar Allan Poe tales. Found Sebastian to be a very interesting character. Liked his relationship with his Dad. Looking forward to seeing where C.S. Poe takes us next.

    I’m so in the mood for a good mystery but I may have to give this one a pass because of aspects I dislike tremendously – cheating and sub/Dom. I even cringe at the word ”spanking’.

    1. I’m not exactly sure why those words are in there because there isn’t any BDSM elements in the book. No sub/Dom dynamic. Or really cheating.

    I’d read several reviews that stated there was a sub/Dom, spanking and cheating element. How odd! But you say there isn’t, Rhys? Awesome – I’m off to add it to my vacation reading:) Thanks for clearing that up for me.

    1. I really didn’t find any Sub/Dom elements. There was sex, a bit rough talk but not much. Cheating is iffy because he’s clearly on the outs with his current but I think she deals with it well. I don’t care for cheating in a book and I would have to say the dissolution is tight here but reasonable. I didn’t find it overt cheating.

    1. There’s some rough talk but I wouldn’t say it’s BDSM. Nothing more than a bit of rough. I think I’ve put more hardcore rough sex in my books than in this one.

        I have to agree no real BDSM or cheating. I think Sebastian and Calvin get very enthusiastic!! And “cheating” doesn’t count when a relationship has already gone bad.

    i just finished the book and really liked it. The author’s writing style reminds me of Josh Lanyon. I was reading the comments above thought I’d throw in my own two cents.

    I’m not sure why Sebastian told Neil about sleeping with Calvin since he was breaking up with him anyway. It seems like salt on the wound. What did it accomplish except to make Sebastian feel better about himself? I’m not even sure if was technically cheating since they weren’t together at that point but I could see confessing if they had chosen to get back or stay together.

    As far as the sex, I wouldn’t categorize it as BDSM. It was just a bit kinky. But two consenting adults and all that.

    Good book. Fun and interesting characters and plot. I’m looking forward to reading the second book in the series.
