About the Author

C.S. Poe is an author of gay mystery and romance. She believes that happily ever after is an attainable goal for any character, given enough elbow grease and legwork is provided.

C.S. lives in New York City, but has called a host of different locations home in the past, most recently Ibaraki, Japan. She regrets no longer having easy access to limited-edition candy, capsule toy machines, and clean trains, but over ten years in New York has proved to her there is no place quite like it.

She has an affinity for all things cute and colorful. C.S. is an avid fan of coffee, reading, and cats, in no particular order. She's rescued three cats, including one found in a drain pipe in Japan who flew back to the States with her. Zak, Milo, and Kasper do their best on a daily basis to sidetrack her from work.

C.S. Poe can be followed on her website, which also has links to her Goodreads and social media pages. She can also be followed via her e-mail newsletter on the website.

When Sebastian Snow comes into his antigue shop one morning he can smell something isn't right and when a heart is found under the floorboard, suddenly his life is changed. When Calvin Winter and his partner are sent to Snow’s Antique Emporium to investigate a heart under the floorboard he never expected to find his life changed. Will Snow and Winter find a connection beyond the murders straight out of Edgar Allan Poe and will they even survive? I'm just going to jump out of the gate and say WOW!!! How this series has slipped my reader radar I have no idea but now that I found it I am loving it! I'll admit that Snow & Winter may not make my annual re-read list but I do know that I will pay them another visit down the road They may not be at the top of my Top 10 Crime-Fighting Duo list but they certainly made the list and to be completely honest the notches between numbers 4, 5, & 6 are so small I would never want to place a bet on something so minute. Edgar Allan Poe has been the basis for many book mysteries and I have yet to read any that aren't uniquely done. The books and stories the writers use may have been used before but there is so much room for interpretation with Poe's work that they are always originally done and CS Poe has put her own intriguing spin to it. That's all I'm going to say towards the mystery side of The Mystery of Nevermore except I will add that I was guessing all the way to the reveal and that alone makes this a keeper as I am rarely surprised right up to the end anymore because I have been reading/watching mysteries for nearly all of my 44 years on this earth. As for Snow and Winter themselves, well what's not to love? Sebastian Snow is an antique dealer that has an unlikely(or not so unlikely in fictional settings) ability to find himself in the middle of trouble. Who knew antiquing could be so dangerous? I love his respect for history and his determination to discover what's going on. As for Calvin Winter, he may not be out of the closet yet but he knows that Seb is a special person even if he is a trouble magnate who doesn't exactly listen. Together they have the potential be extraordinary.

This is a wonderfully written book, with delightfully human characters. Sebastian Snow's voice is by turns sophisticated, sarcastic and deeply Calvin is a three-dimensional prince charming, nursing his own wounds. One can't help but wish them happily ever after! And I'm a C.S. Poe fan for life!

Engaging mystery, terrific characters, and a sweet-- though also very hot -- romance. I look forward to reading more mysteries starring Winter and Snow. -- lyradora

When the book I’m reading and I’m only half way through has me wondering if the next one in the series is out yet, you know it’s a 5 STAR read. I’ve read this ladies work before, and it’s always been enjoyable. But something about these two that for me at least pushed it up that extra notch. Snow, in real life and the books he reads, shows us he loves a good mystery. In part because of his profession, an antique dealer, partly because of his relationships with fine Policemen of NYC. The problem with the latter, the men he’s picked have not been ‘out’. And this has put a strain on the overall relationship. The final straw that broke this one was the meddling Snow kept doing when strange things that were happening in and around his place of home and work. Winter, a highly decorated war veteran and now a detective w/the NYC has landed the case that Snow seems to be in the middle of. What both of them soon realize that it’s more than professional feelings at work. I just want to say, I loved the sly play on names through out the book. Snow and Winter, something about these two just click. Not just on a sexual level, because even though we have that in this book. If you’ve read any of this authors book, it’s not a huge focus, which is fine by me. But the simple basic, they listen, they care, the laying of a head on a chest. “I’m going to hug you every time you call me baby” It’s those simple lines that make me connect, really connect with these two. The fact that Snow is resigned to start dating another closeted cop, but can’t help it. He know that this time, Winter is special, that it’s worth it. As the case unfolds we are right there w/them. With the clues, trying to sort everything out. And the twist at the end, so perfect. We get a wonderful HFN. Now, off to see if I can find book two!
