This third installment was just wonderful. After I sem-panned the narration of Joel Leslie in my review of the second Skyler Foxe Mysteries novel, I relent and say that his performance in this third installment is just wonderful. I hear myself even now, some weeks after listening to 'Out-Foxed' saying 'Skylerrr' in my head using Joel Leslie's Rodolfo voice! It's hilarious.
Out-Foxed does not disappoint on the story side either. It is full of mystery and suspense whilst also being jam packed with humor. In this novel we get to know Skyler's mother a little better and come to see that she is as passionate and caring as Skyler. The only part of the novel I didn't like is when Keith was recalled because the situation had become 'too dangerous'. It didn't really gel with me that he would abandon Skyler that way and leave him in the peril that clearly he was in. Especially when it seemed that his superiors didn't prevent him coming back and clearing everything up with Skyler in the end anyway. The rest of the story was awesome.
I am now looking forward to the novelette based around the Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations and hope Audible will have the next full novel 'Foxe Fire' ready for download very soon.

Where does Out-Foxed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I loved it - I really enjoy this series... Walsh is a delightful writer with a wonderful sense of humor. I've grown very fond of Joel Leslie's performance's - he totally embodies all of the crazy friends with such zest and comedic energy.
What other book might you compare Out-Foxed to and why?
I've heard people describe these books as kind of gay Scooby Doo series. It totally has that a fun campy vibe but there is also a whole lot of heart and some really tender moments. Walsh creates characters that make you laugh but also get you really choked up as well... This book sometimes takes a slightly more serious tone at times (probably because it's the completion of an entire story arc) - but I loved it and I'm itching to read book 4.
Which character – as performed by Joel Leslie – was your favorite?
Rodolofo - he cracks me up. Leslie's dialect and delivery are priceless.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I find that there is always one point in these books that has me getting teary - and I can never predict which set of characters will cause it. I think that's a testament to how much the reader becomes invested in the cast that Walsh has created through this series.
Any additional comments?
Keep writing more!
