High school English teacher Skyler Foxe finally hooks up with gorgeous assistant football coach Keith Fletcher.
But is the man what he seems to be? Skyler still has his doubts when he spies Keith in some shady circumstances. And there are still some unanswered questions as to what exactly is going on at the high school. Who thought high school could be so sinister?
Meanwhile, Skyler’s friends from college have their own problems. Lovers and partners, Evan and Jeff were kicked out of the Army for Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and the depressed Evan is found dead. Suicide, says the police, but Skyler thinks otherwise. It’s Skyler Foxe on the hunt for a killer once more!
Skyler Foxe, the bumbling high school teacher who thinks he’s a great investigator, is back with another mystery to solve!
Skyler is such a piece of work. I mean, seriously…he succeeds in spite of himself. Even though Skyler is a hot mess served on a hot plate, this series is downright fun. There’s something about Walsh’s writing that makes this series more addicting with every page turn.
One thing that irks me is that Skyler is still so firmly in the closet. I understand it, but I prefer my heroes to be out and proud. That’s just a personal preference though. At least we get some super sexy smexy times with Keith this go around. We finally find out what’s going on with Keith, and it turns out I was right to be suspicious! Also, the whole dance thing? Pissed me off in the extreme.
- Even though I prefer my heroes out – I don’t want them outed. They should do it on their own terms and in their own time.
One of the things I love in these stories are the supporting characters, particularly Skyler’s students and best friend Sidney, but especially the S.F.C. (Skyler Fuck Club). They are hysterical!
“Want to do some investigating with me tonight?”
Jamie laughed. “Not another Nancy Boy Mystery!”
I will admit I am driven nuts by Skyler’s TSTL moments. I mean, wow…B&E with no gloves or plan, tipping your hand and revealing all your information to the bad guys, I could go on…Jessica Fletcher Skyler is not.
But…but it sucked me in and, even when I wanted to throttle him, I still couldn’t stop listening. Joel Leslie is just as OTT and dramatic this time around and he invigorates the story until I was practically on the edge of my seat waiting to hear what happens next.
I would definitely recommend you read this series in order. Books one and two end in cliffhangers, and book three supposedly ties up all the loose ends. For some OTT mystery fun, look no further, Skyler, Sidney and the SFC are on the case!
