A toxic family,
And a deep dark secret.
Rachel and her husband Gabriel are living the dream in an old stone farmhouse in south west France. Surrounded by vineyards and sunflower fields, life is bucolic bliss, or would be if it weren’t for threats from Rachel’s vindictive brother, Truck, whom she hasn’t seen since their father’s funeral when Truck warned her he might kill her.
Rachel, Truck, and their two sisters have recently finished sorting out their inheritance from their late parents. Grudges, jealousy and suspicion all raise their gargoyle heads, and when Truck discovers Rachel’s address and threatens to visit her ‘grand-arse house and all it contains,’ she’s convinced she might end up dead.
Wow! Stealing Foxy was an entertaining gem to read. It had its tense moments, heartbreaking moments and lashings of dark humour. Each character shone as the story developed.
I loved the old man in the car and everything he brought to the plot. As for Rachel and Gabriel, I easily connected with them. The setting in which the story was told painted a stunning picture in my mind. This idyllic French house in need of sprucing up tantalised my senses. It was like I could feel the breeze on the sunflowers. And Foxy, aww! Saying no more.
There were a few moments when the words, ‘what the hell?’ slipped into my mind. I couldn’t see how everything was going to get resolved which sent my pulse racing. ‘Stealing Foxy’ is fabulous and fun. It’s darkly delightful and a must read. A definite recommendation from me!
Thanks for reading!
