    One thought on “Lord Foxbridge Butts In”

    1. Oh what a fun read this was and such a nice change from the gritty gory fare that I usually enjoy from the murder/whodunnit genre. To be sure there are murders and bodies - and people get kidnapped, bashed etc; but such unpleasantness is embedded in a broader tale of one Sebastian St-Clare (aka Foxy) who has just come of age and unleashed himself upon London's milieu of 'bright young things' in the period between the great wars. Being an only child and financially independent of his peerage fath [...]

    2. This was a great read. It was fun and light, interesting and intriguing. There is a love interest but no commitment. Lots of behind the scenes sex but nothing on the page. The characters were full and rich (not just monetarily). The 1920's are fascinating to me, and I loved this trip. "Foxy" was a delightful guide.

    3. This was a lot of fun. Love the voice of Sebastian/Foxy. There is a slight thread of a romance through all his other dalliances, but this isn't an emotional read. I hope there will be more adventures with this crafty amateur sleuth.

    4. Funny and engagingWarning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS.

One of my favorites comes early on as he describes his valet: “He was young as valets go, perhaps ten years older than myself, small and dark [...]

    5. WOW!Lord Foxbridge Butts is just an amazing piece of work.When you are taken on a journey as stimulating and jaw-dropping as what this author did, you begin to wonder how much better a novel can get. Well, this is an excellent read that will take you in a wonderland of mystery and adventure. The ride is for the adventure-seeker at heart, you will love how he made the journey so enticing. This is the kind of book you want to read on a stressful day to take your mind to a place that is somewhere d [...]

    6. This looked so promising and it was enjoyable, but very light & breezy; it didn't really engage me on an emotional level and the mysteries also lacked depth.
