Description

A stagehand and an aspiring actor are drawn into a masked rivalry, never suspecting that hiding behind the mask is a familiar face.

Cassandra’s life flashes before her eyes when she gets trapped in a subway door. It’s a disappointing life: she never landed the big role and she may be engaged to the wrong man. Rescued by a kind-eyed stranger, Cassandra gets a second chance to make good on her Broadway dreams, straighten out her love life, and deliver some karmic justice to the city in the guise of a slinky Cat Burglar. So long as she can shake off that pesky Foxman and the bungling police detectives on her tail.

Wilfredo’s skateboarding fox costume is a hit on Halloween. But an unexpected tussle with a fleeing thief in a Cat Burglar suit leads to a spectacular wipeout. He has no clue his mishap has been recorded in a soon-to-be viral video. Nor does he recognize his masked opponent as the green-eyed girl whose number he lost a month ago. Reveling in his every blunder is Captain Pete, the ventriloquist dummy from his childhood, whose snarky comments leave poor Wilfredo clinging to his sanity by his fingernails.

A stagehand and an aspiring actor are drawn into a masked rivalry, never suspecting that hiding behind the mask is a familiar face.

This was highly entertaining fiction with snappy dialogue and clever descriptions. The comic book-ish title and cover intrigued me, and I was pleased with the story I found. Just plain fun to read.

I will be completely honest, starting off this book I was a little confused but as it went on it started to make sense in a very weird but lovely way. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I thought the concept was very new and very different and I connected with both of the main characters. Part of me also wants a Fox costume of my own now

I adored this book, it was witty cunning and clever, everything I expect a fox to be. It had such an interesting and unique premise that was made better by the writing. I loved it and couldnt put it down.

I completely admit I was drawn by the cover on this, well that and the title but I am so glad that I did. This read really brightened my day, the witty and clever dialogue, the writing was so good, foxes are my favourite so I was going to be drawn to this, but never thought I’d love this as much as I did. Fantastic and highly recommended Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for a free copy for an honest opinion

You will love the characters, the dialogue and the setting of this quirky but genuinely engaging book. With a great balance of real and unreal, it draws you inexorably in. Love the writing style - so descriptive and tight.
