Small town reported Peter Fontaine loves his job but wishes to make more of himself and his career than the small pacific northwest town can provide. When he gets a job offer in Austin, TX he wants to take it but the only thing he can think about is will his lover Nick Olsen go with him?
When Nick persuades Peter to go to the annual Frozenman snow sculptor competition with him Peter thinks that this is the time he needs to tell Nick about the job offer and ask him to go with him.
Things get derailed though when Peter finds a dead body hidden in one of the ice sculptures and sets out to solve the murder, almost getting himself dunked in an ice cold lake for his troubles.
Can Nick save Peter from the killer and himself or will he loose Peter to the snow and ice of the mountains and a killer?
Baby It's Cold Outside was a little disjointed. It would have been a pretty good suspense story if it had been a little more fleshed out. The cast of characters were not as detailed as I would have liked and that made it hard to read. I think with maybe a little more background and more character depth this title would make a better showing. It just need a bit more work, but the mystery itself has good bones.
Small town Pacific Northwest reporter Peter Fontaine wants to level up. A job offer in Austin seems to be the answer to his prayers, but there’s one catch: his boyfriend, Nick Olson, artist, recluse, and snow-loving outdoorsman.
When Peter agrees to go to the Freezing Man snow sculpture competition, he thinks he’s going to get a lesson in making love in a hollowed-out snowball in the woods. He thinks he’ll either find a way to convince Nick to come to the Lone Star State or be forced to say goodbye. But one frozen corpse derails Peter’s personal plans entirely...
