I’m not a huge audiobook fan – partially because I’m super picky about the vocal performance and partly because if I like it, I have to stop down and listen to it because I can’t concentrate on anything else while I listen.
Mr. Leslie’s performance seriously makes these books a must listen. I have several books in this series on my kindle but I’ve waited until the audio has been released to listen to him because he’s just that good. He nails each character and I really feel like a part of the performance when I listen.
This is another great story in this series. Skyler doesn’t stop meddling and is as adorable as ever. We get a couple of new characters – one of which is a little bit (ok a lot) crazy and we have more greatness from the SFC and Sydney. Keith actually makes me a little bit mad in this one and it took a while to make me not mad at him…in fact I might not have completely forgiven him yet. I might actually dive into the next book without waiting for the audio to see if he makes me happy again.
Overall, if you are a fan of the series or new to it, this book is definitely worth a listen!!

My favorite TSTL English teacher / amateur sleuth Skyler Foxe is back! This series is just plain fun to listen to. Part of that is due to the wonderful performance of narrator Joel Leslie, but mostly it's due to Haley Walsh dependably writing interesting characters and plots.
Foxe Fire has multiple plots happening, including a firebug in Redlands and a couple of murders, both of which Sklyer Foxe insinuates himself into the middle of once again. I swear, if this character wasn't so likable, I'd wish he was real just so I could strangle him to death. The situations he gets himself into. Seriously TSTL. But Walsh makes it fun to read/listen to Skyler's latest shenanigans, and, of course, Skyler's friends from the SFC are around to wade into the deep end with him. There is such a great ensemble cast to these stories.
My only negative was the miscommunication between Skyler and boyfriend Keith that drove me a little insane and took a while to clear up. Otherwise, this was just good fun.
As for the narration, one of the things about Joel Leslie that consistently fascinates and amazes me is just how many distinct character voices he does, and does well. I love how immersive his narration is, drawing me into each story and keeping my interest until "the end". He's reliably entertaining to listen to and I always enjoy his performance.
Bottom line: Fun, silly, humorous, sexy, and sometimes over the top, this mystery series keeps getting better with one of the most endearing TSTL characters who manages to keep growing on me.
