A solid mystery/crime story that I would have liked better without the surprising paranormal twist.The lighthearted,funny overtone of the story got lost at that point...

Ok so I read the blurb and then I read the book. I really, really liked the book. The story flowed well, the characters were...well some of them were just that characters, overall it was an excellent fun read. I'm not going to go too much into what the books about because...well, really you can read the blurb and it will tell you about the story. What I'm going to say is this story took some surprising twist and turns in some very well plotted out ways and I really enjoy it when an author take m ...more

When you pick up a book, having no idea what it is about, other than you have received it as a submission by a new author, it is so thrilling when it is wonderful. It’s like opening a present and it is exactly to what you need... Fox Hunt by Chris Quinton was just that book.

It became a mystery, a love story and for this short novel it gave me one hundred per cent satisfaction. Robert Rees, works as a full-time librarian. He also indulges in his love being an art restorer. His father does this a

The blurb is pretty straightforward about what the premise of what Fox Hunt is about, so I won’t spend much time rehashing it. I also do not want to spoil any of interesting twists and turns the plot has throughout this book, so l’m going to tread lightly here without hopefully giving too much away.

Robert Rees thinks he’s an ordinary guy with an ordinary life, but when he’s asked to restore two portraits, Robert won’t believe he lives an average life ever a

When Robert Rees is called home to see his dad, who's taken a nasty spill and is hospitalized, the last thing he expects is to have to help around his house. Especially when it's involving restoring some artwork the old man accepted on commission.

Seems there are two panels that look to be pretty valuable, and perhaps of questionable provenance, and more than one person is interested in them. After a break-in and a visit by two guys who can only be called hired muscle, Robert is a bit concerned.

Interesting story of Robert Rees, who is helping out his sick father by restoring some old paintings. Rob's brother thinks there is something fishy about their father's accident and organises a friend to keep an eye on Rob while he's staying at his father's old house. But the friend (the very handsome Fox) adds even more mystery to the situation.

I like the mystery and the unexpected paranormal twist. The bad guy, Wendlow is satisfyingly creepy. Rob's family, including his curmudgeonly father, hi

I really enjoyed this. A good clean writing style conveys the ordinary twisting around into the extraordinary with nary a slip.

I enjoy certain combinations of characters, and this includes one of my favourites for romances. The POV character is a 'regular guy' who fears he's living too small a life, and underestimates the attractiveness of his innate decency and strength. The love interest is someone intriguingly different, and the sort who might have anyone - but he's wise enough to know what

Almost, but not quite 4 stars.

Good writing, a nice dose of humor, likable characters. I had my suspicions about Fox, so I wasn't that surprised when the twist was revealed. I do agree with some reviewers that paranormal element wasn't necessary, at least all that brainwashing got old really fast and felt like an easy way out. But, I liked Fox and I liked Robert and they worked well together. Maybe, if the author gave us more of Rob's crazy family instead of (view spoiler)

Not a bad book, but I just found myself really bored. The mystery never fully engaged me, and the supernatural twist was just more of the same old same old (view spoiler). I liked the balance between the characters, but something kept me from really caring about them, or their predicament.

Chris started creating stories not long after she mastered joined-up writing, somewhat to the bemusement of her parents and her English teachers. But she received plenty of encouragement. Her dad gave her an already old Everest typewriter when she was about ten, and it was probably the best gift she'd ever received – until the inventions of the home-computer and the worldwide web.
