    "Snowman" a chilling, suspenseful mystery with relatable, realistic characters you'll love!

    When body parts were found in the sewer pipes at the Castro restaurant where Tim Snow usually works, he was just recovering from injuries suffered in his last adventure with "bad guys." His boyfriend Mark, helping out the gay owners of the restaurant, made the discovery, but it is Tim's Aunt Ruth and Mark's author grandmother, Amanda Musgrove, who stumble on the possible crime scene, and lead the police to investigate possible leads to drug runners in the area. Meanwhile, Tim is trying his best to deal with his bigoted Texas cousin, Ruth's daughter Dianne, but can't resist goading her into confrontations about his being gay. Ruth is giving Dianne as much space as possible as well, choosing to spend as much time as possible with her fiancé, Sam.

    In this fourth of his "Beach Reading" series of mysteries, the author creates one heck of a suspenseful page turner, featuring the characters already endeared to those of us who read the earlier books in the series. (While reading them all in order is not a must, as Abramson provides sufficient detail for "newbies" to catch up on what they need to know, I do indeed recommend reading them all, as this is absolutely the best gay mystery series to come along in at least a decade!) As always, the writing takes you to the Castro instantly, and you can almost smell the sourdough bread! Five perfect stars out of five.

    Save your money

    This should be called a chapter not a book. It starts in the middle but doesn't leave you wanting more at the end. I found the author's anti-republican rhetoric to be not only unnecessary but immature.

    One Of The Best In The Beach Reading Series

    IF you are a Mark Abramson "Beach Reading" series fan - you'll love Snowman. Once again, Tim Snow and his colorful cast of characters - especially the fun-loving Aunt Ruth - make this an enjoyable, fun, light-hearted read; the mystery isn't deep, but the antics, charm and believability of the characters make this title one of the best in the series!!! Perfect for a lazy, sunny afternoon in the park - or, dare I say, cozy "beach reading"....

    A Great Series

    I treasure the Beach Reading series as much as I do the Tales of the City series. I love them both, and I'm eagerly ready for book 5!
    Tim believes that he and Nick need some time apart. He feels something is lost in their relationship while Nick has been nursing him back to health, (wiping his ass kills the romance). But, Nick doesn't feel the same way, so he is respecting Tim's wishes and has been keeping busy with rebuilding the nursery.
    After a week apart, Tim decides to take some time to drive the red convertible to L.A. and visit friends of Jason's, (his murdered ex). At the same time, Nick comes looking for Tim in San Francisco, hoping to surprise him. However, neither of their plans goes as they intend them to. Tim will discover a gorgeous fashion model, Adam, in Sam's pool, and Nick will find body parts in the dumpster behind Arts.
    Dianne, Aunt Ruth's only child, is visiting for a spell. She is turning all their friends and co-workers off though. She's a closed minded, rude, extreme conservative, wealthy, racist, bored house wife, Texan, and a great big witch with a capital b. Needless to say, she and her cousin Tim do not get along.
    When Dianne passes out cold in Arts, the day that Aunt Ruth has feared and wished would never come, does. For Dianne's own good, Aunt Ruth's best kept secret will come out.
    And, when Bart goes missing, (even the poor cat can't stand Dianne's company), his trail will lead Aunt Ruth and Nick's grandmother, the writer, to the dilapidated apartment building behind Arts.
    Tim's psychic dreams are not as powerful and forceful as they have been in the previous books, but they are clues to the disturbing polaroids, the Ziploc of gross body parts, and a badly spelled note that his Aunt Ruth receives. Can his dreams, Teresa's new boyfriend, the cop Peter Parker, and Aunt Ruth's sleuthing skills save their lives before the murders get to them first?
