Cat Latimer’s Colorado bed-and-breakfast plays host to writers from all over. But murder is distinctly unwelcome . . .

To kick off a winter writing retreat, Cat and her handyman boyfriend, Seth, escort the aspiring authors to a nearby ski resort, hoping some fresh cold air will wake up their creative muses. But instead of hitting the slopes, they hit the bar—and before long, a tipsy romance novelist named Christina is keeping herself warm with a local ski bum who might have neglected to tell her about his upcoming wedding.

Next thing Cat knows, her uncle, the town sheriff, informs her that the young man’s been found dead in a hot tub—and Christina shows up crying and covered in blood. Now, between a murder mystery, the theft of a rare Hemingway edition, and the arrival of a black-clad stranger in snowy Aspen Hills, Cat’s afraid everything’s going downhill…

This is the second book in the Cat Latimer cozy mystery series by Lynn Cahoon and she has delivered another whopper of a mystery in this book! Lynn Cahoon gives you everything you could ever want in a cozy mystery, an intriguing mystery with a sub-plot mystery, an ending twist that you never saw coming, a wonderful and realistic cast of characters, enough backstory to endear you to the character’s lives, and some romance. I loved the characters in this book even more than in the first book, which I didn’t think possible. The continued character development in this book is amazing; I know these are people I would want to be friends with! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and could gush about so many elements that made this a fun book to read, but I don’t want to give away any nuggets. Go get it and experience Cat Latimer and the whole cast of great characters!
