Format: Paperback
My first book from this author. I can't say I'd rush to buy any more in the series but, on the other hand, if I came across them, I'd take them on holiday or similar.

The book was easy to read. Charlie Fox is a bit of a mixed bag; a sort of ex-Army hard nut, yet not really hard enough to overcome her opponents - by and large; it's left to others to give her a helping hand which fortunately for her, they do.

She seems to have a thing for Sean Meyers, so I suppose this blew up in earlier books. It doesn't detract from the story but you just know that, despite evidence to the contrary, things can only get better.

The story is pretty run of the mill. A chaperoning job turns into a murder hunt, all because a piece of software can make or break those without enough savvy to play the stock market and guess what, there's an ex-multi millionaire down on his financial luck just itching to get his grubby hands on the software. So, it's up to the Foxy lady to make he doesn't. Well, read on to see where that takes you. As I said, easy to read, predictable, fairly amusing and, if you like gutsy women out of their depth, this character should hit the spot.

Format: Paperback
This is the fourth in the Charlie Fox series: after the events in the body-guard training school in Germany (Hard Knocks), Charlie goes to Florida to work with Sean on her first body-guard assignment. But things rapidly get out of hand (of course!) as her teenage charge is pursued by a raft of villains - and the lovely Sean disappears...

I love these book and can't believe they're not better known. Sharp writes brilliant action thrillers that never flag but which are leavened by superb characterisation and an intense emotional edge, especially in the relationship between Charlie and Sean.

If you can, it's best to read these books in order, although I haven't managed to. This is another compulsive and addictive read - only dropping one star for the dearth of Sean throughout most of the book.

Format: Paperback
First Drop is set in sunny Florida. Although, I can't help feeling sorry for Charlie with her initial babysitting job, it's clear that she can handle the 'bad guys' as well as the 'brattiest, spoilt rich kid'. But it looks like she'd much rather be kicking some butt than tolerating immature teenagers and who can blame her when she does it so well.

Again no spoilers, so what more can I say but Charlie's gone transatlantic and this book is just as enjoyable as all the others. Zoe manages to keep you enthralled from the beginning to end with non-stop action. If you haven't met Charlie Fox yet, then what's keeping you...?

Format: Hardcover
I've seen the heroine CHARLIE FOX move from an angst-ridden local crimefighter and women's champion to international personal-protection expert. If you like your heroines local and REAL then look at the earlier books,if you're looking for something on a trans-atlantic stage, this is as good as it gets.
