    In Dixie Divas, Trinket Truevine, her pal Bitty and their raucous diva friends in the historic small town of Holly Springs, Mississippi, solved the murder of Bitty's ex-senator husband, Phillip. Now, in Drop Dead Divas, the Divas are sleuthing again. Town bad girl Naomi Spencer has been accused of murdering her fiancé, drag-race champion Race Champion. Soon, Naomi turns up dead, too. Talk about a fly in the martini... Join the bawdy fun as Trinket, Bitty and the gang unravel another small-town mystery.

    What made the experience of listening to Drop Dead Divas the most enjoyable?

    The narrator does so many different character voices it make you believe there are different people doing each character.


    What other book might you compare Drop Dead Divas to and why?

    Not sure


    What about Karen Commins’s performance did you like?

    I like her reading each character in with a believable different voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not really, I enjoyed it but I would need a break from time to time.


    Any additional comments?

    I just think theses books are a fun take on a murder mystery. I read so many thriller books that this one takes the serious tones out and makes it a little fun without any disrespect for the murder victim.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Teddy says: "Demented, twisted, sick and I loved it!"
    "Loved it!"

    If you could sum up Gone Girl in three words, what would they be?

    Twist and Turn


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Somewhat, I thought I knew what was going to happen and then it would change direction.


    What about Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s performance did you like?

    They really made believe they were the actual characters


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I made me laugh a few times, but not cry.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book and I am now listening to another one of Gillian's books, I think he style is interesting.
