Skyler Foxe is a brand new English teacher in his hometown of Redlands, CA. He loves literature, loves his students, loves his friends, especially his best friend Detective Sidney Feldman. But he doesn't love keeping his orientation a secret, afraid of the backlash in this conservative county. But will murder thrust him into unwanted limelight?

If Stephanie Plum was a gay teacher :)

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. Loved the characters, loved the humor. It was so great to read about a gay lead character that had the same quality as mainstream mystery fiction. If you like Janet Evanovich, you'll love Skyler. The narrator is perfect... he doesn't just read the book... he brings the characters to really distinct life. I've already told my friends about it.

What did you like best about this story?

I think Skyler is such an endearing character... he has flaws and he's struggling to find himself and own his identity. His relationship with his students is really charming. My favorite thing is probably the quality of the writing... it was so great to read something with gay characters that was of such great comedic quality.

Which character – as performed by Joel Leslie – was your favorite?

Probably Jamie. He's hilarious - fabulous but full of heart.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There was a point where I actually did get teary... but I don't wanna spoil it.

Any additional comments?

The books contain some (pretty steamy) sex - but the focus is on the story and the characters. It's was awesome.

Miss Marple meets Neil Patrick Harris.

If you could sum up Foxe Tail in three words, what would they be?

It's just like a gay Hardy Boys. It was so refreshing to read such a well written piece of gay mystery fiction. The characters are delightful, the writing is hilarious and the mystery is also well crafted. If you're a fan of MC Beaton and other engaging 'amateur sleuth' series, this is a definitely sexy addition to the canon.

What other book might you compare Foxe Tail to and why?

It reminds me a lot of the Agatha Raisin or Hamish McBeth books - but with a wonderful cast of hilarious gay friends. Replace crumpets with cosmos... and you have Skyler Foxe and his friends. There is some really sexy stuff in the book - but that's certainly not the writer's focus. It was great to read adult fiction that was really invested in the story and the characters. Styler may be a horndog- but he's a wonderful role model.

What does Joel Leslie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He has amazing versatility with the characters. He has great comedic timing and the dynamic between all of Skyler's friends is hilarious.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There was one scene that made me really sniffly - i won't say what it is... but it's a lovely little surprise that you don't really see coming toward the end of the book. Walsh really makes you care about the minor characters as well.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait to read book 2.

So happy!

My first audible! Had been thinking of reading this for a while. Went to buy it on kindle and saw it was also on audio. Why not give it a try. I'm so glad I did! The story was very entertaining and the performance fun to listen to. Starting book 2 very soon!

Skyer Foxe is brilliant

This is book one in the series and I'm already going through withdrawal. I finished listening to it about an hour ago and now I want more Skyler.
Skyler, an English teacher, gets caught up in murder and mystery at his school. He's young, enthusiastic, caring and gay but in the closet at his work. When he discovers the body of his principal's son outside of a nightclub, Skyler has to investigate. His friends - and particularly his best friend who is also a detective - warn him but he has to keep going.
Joel Leslie does an excellent job of narrating.
This book is definitely recommended.
