The Way She Reads

My thoughts on everything I read; good, bad and indifferent.

Great Fun

Detective Fox and the Christmas Caper (Dick and the Sidekick Book 1) - Isobel Starling

Oh but this book was fun; a cosy and humorous crime-caper come romance is probably the best description I can come up with. I pretty much smiled and laughed my way through this novella from start to finish.


There is a lot to like about this book. I loved both Tom’s gruffness and Eli’s sweet temperament, especially because the tables are completely turned once these two men get naked together. Sexy doesn’t begin to describe their bedroom (and living room for that matter) antics, but as hot as they were, they always erred on the side of sweet.


The crime in this book is rather ingenious and made me wonder about the author’s morality for a moment J I could actually see a set up as the one described in this book work in reality. The way the case ended on the other hand was all high jinks and far from realistic, but all the more fun for it. (And that’s all you’re getting, read the book if you want to know what I mean).


I’ve been a fan of ‘Midsomer Murders’, both the books and the TV series, and was delighted to see the author took her inspiration for Tom from those stories. Now that I’ve finished this story I can only hope the author will revisit Tom and Eli. Surely there are more mysteries and sexy-times in their future, and I for one, really want to read those.


If you’d like a lighthearted, sexy, and funny Christmas story look no further; Detective Fox and the Christmas Caper is exactly what you’re looking for.
