Skyler and his friends go to Palm Springs for the annual White Party and find murder!
Out and proud high school English teacher Skyler Foxe and his posse of friends go to the annual Palm Springs White Party for a weekend of fun, frivolity, and luscious men. But there are boy troubles of all kinds ahead. Skyler’s boyfriend and high school coach Keith Fletcher has to endure an embarrassing number of Skyler’s former hook-ups, one of the SFC might be going solo, Skyler encounters unexpected and unwelcome participants at the party, and there’s a murder on the dance floor, literally at Skyler’s feet! Both Skyler and Keith are drawn into investigating more than murder when the FBI asks Skyler to do the unthinkable.
My favorite TSTL English teacher / amateur sleuth Skyler Foxe is back and going on vacation to Palm Springs for the annual White Party and bringing the SFC and his boo, Keith, along for the ride. What could possibly go wrong?
Well, murder, underage kids sneaking into the party, relationships hanging by a thread, skinny dipping, butt plugs and cock rings…
This series is just plain fun to listen to.
While the rest of the series has focused on Skyler’s POV, I loved that Walsh switched it up this time allowing for multiple points of view including Skyler, Keith, Phillip, Jamie, Sidney, as well as Skyler’s students Alex and Rick as well as telling the story in a less linear fashion.
I adore Joel Leslie’s narration of this series. It consistently amazes me just how many great and distinct character voices he does so 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.
As always, this series is fun, silly, humorous, sexy, and sometimes over the top, with one of the most likable TSTL characters in the genre.
