Blurb: Interlude is a collection of short stories spanning the complete timeline of the Snow & Winter series, beginning with The Mystery of Nevermore, to after the conclusion of The Mystery of the Bones. They feature the point of view of Sebastian Snow and Calvin Winter and consist of mini mysteries, as well as scenes from daily life.

Please note: While many of these titles were previously made available for free to readers, they have all since been rewritten, expanded, and edited for this collection. Several shorts are brand-new and exclusive, including Someone’s in the Wall, St. Louis What Now?, and Trope: Only One Bed.

4.5 Stars!

This is a collection of short stories set in the Snow & Winter universe, showing us moments in time in Calvin and Sebastian’s relationship that fall in different parts of the series. You really need to read Interlude after reading the series for maximum enjoyment. 

I loved getting to witness the growing intimacy between Sebastian and Calvin, and that even if things weren’t always easy for them, seeing how they grew so much as individuals and as a couple in the time they’d been together and how they dealt with life and a few mysteries was delightful. 

This is a must-read for fans of the series!
