Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Foxy Roxy

“A hilarious combination of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum and Lisa Scottoline’s Bennie Rosato”
The Times-Picayune

“Light years away from Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple, and is grittier and more sexual than Laura Lippman’s Tess Monaghan.”
Pittsburgh Tribune Review

“In this stellar first in a new series, Martin introduces Roxy Abruzzo, ultra-sexy Pittsburgh sleuth . . . a tough girl like Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum. . . . A wild cat-and-mouse game with a killer that will leave Martin’s fans clamoring for more.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

More About the Author

I wrote romance novels for years, but I finally had enough sex--at least on paper!--and decided it was time to start killing people.

So now I write funny, sexy murder mysteries. Check out my website for more details: www.nancymartinmysteries.com

Just so everyone is aware, this is the exact same book as "Our Lady of Immaculate Deception". I have no idea why the publisher or author published this book under two completely different titles. A good book nonetheless, but I wanted to make people aware that they don't need to buy both as they are the same book.

this book was s released by a different title "immaculate deception". so Foxy Roxy is not a continuation of the series but actually still the first book of the series.
confusion aside, it is a funny book with an oversexed antique dealer trying to act as a single mother who is tough as nails and gentle as a lamb.

If you like Janet Evanovich and her series about a New Jersey bounty hunter, you'll like Nancy Martin's Pittsburgh architectural salvage dealer! While this book isn't spit-your-coffee-out-your-nose funny, it is funny enough to be called a screwball comedy, romance, murder mystery. I can't wait to read the rest of her series!

Really liked the book. Loved her other series...this is much edgier and a more saucy. Liked the character development and will enjoy reading more in this series!!!

I almost didn't read this book because I read book one in Nancy Martin's Blackbird Sisters series and found it to be trite and difficult to get through. Roxy Abruzzo seemed to be a different kind of heroine and I saw some good reviews on several sites so I decided to give the series a try and I am glad I did! Roxy is different...she's an edgy single mother with her own moral code and a family life that is now pretty good but it wasn't always that way. There is a great cast of supporting characters, a terrific potential love interest in Flynn and some nice plot development here. Book one is good and sets the stage for the series nicely though I think book two is even better. If you like edgy, complicated, gutsy heroines then spend some time with Roxy Abruzzo - you won't regret it.

As much as I loved the Blackbird sisters, I hate Roxy Abruzzo. She has no redeeming quality. She isn't interesting.

What makes me even more irritated is that I bought Our Lady of Immaculate Deception, read it, hated it, but, formerly loving Nancy Martin's books, and thinking it couldn't have been as bad as I remembered, I bought Foxy Roxy. After the first few pages it seemed disgustiingly familiar.

Releasing one book under two names doesn't seem right to me.

Maybe it is not my style. I had to make myself finish the book, and that is NOT the way to enjoy a book.
