A 50-something who loves sci-fi, cozy mysteries, thrillers, an occasional romance, and any genre if it is a good story. And especially if it makes me laugh! No vampires or zombies though - these are NOT sci-fi!
If you like cozy mysteries with a lot of laughs, this one is for you. Each character reminds me of people I knew while growing up in the south, just more so. The narrator has just returned home to Mississippi after her divorce, to care for her parents (who, it turns out, only need someone to care for their menagerie while they go on adventures). Her cousin, Bitty, is a fanatic about historical homes, and her pursuit of a home to place on the historical register starts a series of events that will keep you laughing or shaking your head. But like all the strong Southern women I know, they come out on top, with style and graciousness. Enjoy!
I have been searching for weeks for a funny cozy and I have finally found it! And, not only that, luckily, it is a series. It has all the right ingredients- lovable characters, small town feel, charm & wit, interesting plot. I am a new fan of Virginia Brown.
Tell us about yourself! Love good Mystery & some fantasy/sci fi. Favorite authors are J D Robb, Dean Koontz, Harlan Corbin, J K Rowlins.
Was like listening to my southern kinfolk. I thoroughly enjoyed and laughed a lot :)
She got the accent right and did not overdo.
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.
I really enjoyed this book. I love the Diva's and really enjoy the complications in the friendship between Trinket and Biddy. These ladies are real people that fall into solving the crime.... They are so different but really make reading this murder mystery a pleasure. I can't wait to read listen to the next book in the series!
