Lulu Dark is back, and definitely done with her days as a girl detective. She's got enough on her plate without solving mysteries. And, anyway, Lulu is so not the girl detective type, even if she did do a spectacular job of solving a mystery in LULU DARK CAN SEE THROUGH WALLS. That's all over, and so is school! Lulu is thrilled that summer vacation has finally arrived. She is going to watch bad television, hang out with her friends, talk on the phone, and sunbathe on the fire escape. She is not going to be doing any detective work, no matter what mystery comes her way...Right?

Wrong. When her mother, actress Isabelle Dark, shows up, Lulu's summer plans are ruined. Isabelle is shooting a movie, and one of her fellow actresses, teen superstar Lisa Lincoln, is the target of the mysterious Fox. After Isabelle's disappearance, however, the Fox's plans become a little clearer. When Isabelle Dark is one of four blonds in hot pink jumpsuits to show up just as Lisa Lincoln accepts her award, that's when things really get interesting. Apparently, these actresses, working for the Fox, want recognition for older actresses, not just talentless bimbos like Lisa. And they're willing to use any means necessary to get what they want.

When Lulu's sometimes-boyfriend, Charlie, starts hanging out with Lisa Lincoln, Lulu is not happy. She's even less happy when Charlie's association with the starlet gets him kidnapped! Lisa and Charlie are missing, presumably kidnapped by the Fox, and Lulu is definitely involved in this mystery, whether she likes it or not.

LULU DARK AND THE SUMMER OF THE FOX is a fast-paced mystery with likeable and believable characters that is sure to be a hit, especially with readers of Bennett Madison's first novel about Lulu Dark. You don't have to have read the first book to enjoy this one, though. The twists and turns of the mystery are numerous, and Lulu's reluctance to get involved makes her a lot more realistic than, say, Nancy Drew. This book has everything! There's humor, suspense, romance, and more, all in Lulu's unique and funny voice. I can't wait to read more from Bennett Madison!
