I really enjoy these books. Walsh has a great gift for dialogue and as these books progress she only makes you care more and more about the characters. Skyler can be an infuriating romance flip-flopper - but he's so damn adorable you can't help but get sucked in. This time the sex scenes are a lot more prominent and they are damn hot. Walsh doesn't just write pulp story lines that thinly connect sex scenes, however - these books are way more satisfying than that. They are a delightful, guilty pleasure that is sure to remind you of your own crazy friends. The narrator manages to make the most of the comedic qualities of the book - he has great timing and each of the over-the-top one of Skyler's friends are rendered with specificity and energy. If you like a 'dead read' kind of narration - this isn't for you - but he's perfect for the energy of the material. Walsh writes great sensual scenes but by the end of the book I was totally wrapped up in the story and found that I'd really become attached to these characters. Can't wait for the next book to come out in audio.

What made the experience of listening to Foxe Hunt the most enjoyable?
I love the characters in this series - Skyler's friends and their unique, hilarious personalities really make the series for me.
What did you like best about this story?
I might have preferred the mystery in the first story a little more - but the larger storyline which Walsh is developing over the first three books really starts to get interesting. I really like her writing style. I was surprised how much more steamy sex there was in this book (romantic and very hot) but I really appreciate that her primary goal is to give us a really great story. Woven around the 'amateur sleuth' storylines she manages, despite the craziness of the characters and their wild adventures, to have them face real struggles that gay folks all deal with. She's passionate about her characters but also clearly cares a lot about the social challenges LGBT people face... She manages an impressive balance between giving a light, fun read and still adding real depth to Skyler's larger story line.
What does Joel Leslie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The narrator (who i think does an even better job with book two) has great comedic timing and really goes to town with the flamboyant, fun personalities of Rodolfo and Jamie especially. Skyler's mom was a really fun addition too.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Certainly I'm looking forward to book three - because once again she leaves us with a great cliffhanger - but the relationship between Skyler and Keith - and the climax of that in the book (during a school dance) really moved me in a way I certainly hadn't expected from a book with so much humor.
