Definitely worth the credit if you like to have a little fun and understand the southern way of life; humor; and food. FUNNY! I had to get used to the narrator, but really liked her by the end. I cannot wait to listen to more of Trinket and Biddy's adventures with the Dixie Divas! Love them! I want to start my own Dixie Diva club.
I will buy the next in series as I found the Southern Belles delightful and funny. Not my usual book, but have recommended for a laugh and odd roll of the eyes. I want to see how much trouble they can get into in book two.
This book just didn't hit the mark. Felt like the author and narrator were trying too hard to be southern and funny, it just didn't work. Not a Dixie Cash.
Im a ranger in Western Australia, that has to travel alot with my job, so I enjoy listening to a good story to help me pass the miles.
What a pickle these Dixie Divas get themselves into... True girly friendship proves that birds of a feather flock together. Hilarious frivolity is a must for these ladies and it was a giggle out loud kind of saga.
Cant wait to listen to the next to see what these fabulous gals will get up to next. If I was in a flap, I would love these chicks to solve the mystery with me.
Dixie Divas is the first of a "Diva" series
Those Dixie Divas Rock! I want to move to Cherry Hill, Mississippi, just so as I can listen to those accents and join the divas.
Trinket Truevine has moved back to Cherry Hill ,she is the main story teller, she and her cousin, the much divorced, primped and botoxed Bitty are the stars of the show.
Now, back to those Divas, who are they? They are a very exclusive group of Southern ladies who hold regular get togethers in order to have a jolly good time! The wine flows and the entertainment sizzles. What goes on in these meetings stays in these meetings. Trinket is invited along to one by her cousin Bitty, Trinkets' eyes are opened by the secret goings on!
There is, of course, a murder or two with twists and turns to the plot, there is a little romance and lots of sleuthing before the culprit is arrested. For me though, the murder story was secondary to the hilarious narrative, little scenes made me laugh out loud. I hooted at the description of Uncle Freds' funeral (that's Uncle Fred on Mommas side).
In my minds eye I could just see Bittys' acquired dog, Chitlin' in all his ugliness (bless him), and then, oh dear! Bittys' description of the effects of alcohol on Delbert, one of her ex husbands!
The whole story delighted me.
Karen Commins brought these characters to life for me, with a distinct voice for each character, male and female, I was soon able to distinguish who was who. Being British and now living in Australia I could be accused of being unqualified to judge the authenticity of the Southern accents, but I thought Karen did a wonderful job.
This audiobook was gifted to me by the narrator, with no expectation of a review.
This was not as great as I thought it would be. The narration was terrible and did not fit the characters in the book.
more store and less descriptions I found we were up to chapter 9 and I knew very little about the mystery and TONS of little details about stuff that were not part of the story. It was like listening to a friend tell a story that would never end.
bitty and chien ling. I just got a kick how she fell in love with her.
I purchased the book and then read a few negative reviews. I figured this might not be one I liked. Happy to say I did enjoy the book. The characters were funny and likable. the narrator did a fine job. Her accent was not hard to listen to. It was a typical "cozy mystery" a little light on the plot and heavier on the characters.
Different narrator! The voice and accent make listening , horrible. I like the story line, but can't get any farther than 2 hours into
Different narrator, or lose the FAKE southern accent!
Disappointment due to narration
Waste of a credit! Now have to buy Kindle version to finish the book
