Book Review: "Foxy Roxy" by Nancy Martin
Big truck, big dog, big hair. Bad attitude. — Roxy Abruzzo, bestseller Nancy Martin's latest creation, is the sexy, streetwise niece of a Pittsburgh crime boss, and she’s trying to stay on the straight and narrow . . . most of the time. But now and then temptation is just too much for hot-blooded Roxy. As she prowls the ... more »mean streets looking for architectural treasures, she can't help swiping an ancient Greek statue that's not exactly hers. Then the statue's owner, heir to a billion-dollar steel fortune, gets himself killed, and the police investigation sweeps Roxy into a mess that requires all of her wits and wiles to escape. All this plus a dotty grand dame, a slippery lawyer, and an avaricious socialite or two makes for a lethal combination of danger and desperation -- with Roxy in the middle.
I think this is a first author for me. I did NOT like this book at all. I read about four chapters and called it good. The writing, characters, storyline - couldn't get into.
Would not recommend this book. I thought it would be funny and interesting like Stephanie Plum, like it said on the cover - WRONG!!!
