    325 ish starsDespite what the title may have hinted at Sandra Brown’s latest release failed to outfox this loyal reader Her signature plot trickery deployed to dupe readers—in only the best way possible of course—wasn’t up to snuff this go round No doubt a decent read overall but several rungs below what’s become her standard The harmonious counterbalance of suspense and romance Brown has excelled at in the past eradicated by a plot hole ridden investigationBrown’s name tops my romantic suspense leaderboard by leaps and bounds above others in the genre Game changing plot twists combined with potent doses of sexual tension from her love interests typically spell page turner  I would say that’s true here for the first half of the lengthy novel At the midway point things take a bit of a turn though—transitioning from intriguing to repetitive and theatrical Well except for the love part but on that in a bit Oozing charm and with a deep dimple to boot FBI agent Drex what a name Easton makes it easy to get wrapped up in his mission Driven by a blood oath and deep seated need for vengeance Drex has spent the entirety of his adulthood chasing a faceless man A chameleon responsible for the alleged disappearance of eight women and their sizable bank balances When Drex gets a lead on his mark's assumed identity and location he wastes no time planting himself in the rented garage apartment next door Selling himself as a struggling writer looking for color and context to beef up his debut he sets up surveillance Despite concrete evidence or the discovery of any bodies Drex intuitively knows Jasper Ford is his man What Drex couldn't plan for the connection he feels when he locks eyes with Talia Jasper's much younger wife  Which makes uncovering her role—accomplice or potential victim—pivotal The why driving the suspense is a tad murky Lost among the jurisdictional interferences the annoyance of Drex’s arch nemesis Rudkowski and the blatant lack of evidence Things get a touch overwrought and even downright messy at times And the mundane collection that provides the only link between the cases completely uninspired Drex and Talia's connection is an effortless scene stealer Threaded throughout are bouts of witty banter and an attraction so intense at times it's all consuming There are a few subtle clues—seasoned romance readers will likely pick up on—as to where things are headed for the newfound duo Nothing that detracts from their journey per se but with the potential to drag a reader's preferences into the euation Or maybe not In a surprise turn of events my typical loathing for the said scenario marked a no show The gaping hole instead filled by a healthy dose of unabashed glee An epilogue so stellar in fact it acted almost like a salve mitigating my disappointment with the other plot lines I couldn't have dreamt up a fitting end Thanks to Poisoned Pen and Sandra Brown for landing a personalized copy on my doorstep ♥

    Outfox was a fantastic cat and mouse gameIt had many twists and turns therefore there was no chance for me getting bored As a matter of fact the chase which was the main focal point of Outfox was what I loved the most about this book Because if you boil it down to the basics it was a story about two very intelligent me

    35 stars and I have to be honest I waffled there for a while on whether to round up or down I usually love Sandra Brown’s books I didn’t hate this one but I didn’t love it either The plot was pretty good and I did enjoy the investigation and plan to catch a killer I just didn’t really care anything about anyone who was in it D
