Synopsis: 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 . . .

Review: This is the second book in the Cat Latimer series, and I am already hopelessly hooked--although I'm not sure I'd ever want to attend one of her writer's retreats!  :D

Although none of the retreat attendees were killed this time, one of them was a person of interest when a murder occurred at the local ski resort--and everyone was questioned about the theft of a rare book from the college library. On top of that, Cat learns some fascinating information about Covington College which had somehow managed to escape her attention up to this point.

In other words, there are a lot of things going on in this book, but most of it gets tied up neatly by the end. We're still left wondering exactly what was going on with Cat's former husband and whether or not his death was a murder--but I have a feeling that is going to play out over several more books.

It was nice to see the relationship between Cat and Seth growing, slowly but surely. Shauna and Uncle Pete play a big part in this book as they did in the first one, and we get to know them each a little better. 

This is a fun read with a great mystery/mysteries to solve. I would highly recommend it.

Rating: Four stars
