Publisher's Summary

"You found my philandering ex-husband?" Bitty asked. "Where? Mexico? Paris? In Tupelo with a cocktail waitress?"

"In your closet," I answered. "Dead."

Break out the hoop skirts and the zinfandel. The Divas are on the case.

Wine. Chocolate. Transvestite strippers. Just another good-time get-together for the Dixie Divas of historic Holly Springs, Mississippi, where moonlight and magnolias mingle with delicious small-town scandal. But Eureka "Trinket" Truevine, the newest Diva, gets more than she bargained for when she finds her best Diva girlfriend Bitty Hollandale's ex-husband in Bitty's hall closet. He's dead. Very dead. Now Trinket and the Divas have to help Bitty finger the murderer and clear her name.

Virginia Brown is the nationally acclaimed, award-winning author of 50 novels.

    "Perfect Funny Cozy Mystery"

    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.

    "Great book"
    What did you love best about Dixie Divas?

    Was like listening to my southern kinfolk. I thoroughly enjoyed and laughed a lot :)


    What about Karen Commins’s performance did you like?

    She got the accent right and did not overdo.

    "Boring and stupid until it becomes offensive"

    This book seems to spend more time constructing some made-up sense of being Southern -- lots of talk of kudzu and fried food. The plot was slow to the point of being almost nonexistent, and the character development -- well, it's just not there. I was able to manage to keep listening while doing other things that half kept my attention. Then, I hit the part that defended the early years of the Ku Klux Klan. I'm done. Spare me the defense of the South.

    I couldn't even tell you why this book is supposed to be a mystery. Yes, two men disappeared, but the narrator is so obtuse that I just couldn't care.

    "Laugh Out Loud Funny!"

    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.

    "Fun book, enjoyed more than I expected"

    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.

    "Tries Too Hard"

    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.

    "Diva calamity hilarity."

    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.

    Women, problem solvers. Leaders in their community. Out to find the killer or killers. I have not laughed this hard listening to these series of books. I love the Dixie Diva, they make me laugh. Thank you

    Story
    "Somewhat entertaining"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator's voice annoyed me when she was reading as Trinket but not as much when she played Bitty. Perhaps a different narrator? Also, there was way, way, WAY too much filler about southerners and town history that was not relevant to the story and felt like padding to me.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I liked the relationship between Trinket and Bitty the most. They're not quite "Mouse and Sister" but entertaining.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Karen Commins?

    Well, if she does the other Dixie Divas books, I might but I wouldn't likely choose one just based on her narration alone.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, I mostly enjoyed listening to this book and liked some of the snarky humor ("Chitling") but felt the writing could have been tighter. It meandered around a lot and I could tell where the editors might have told the writer to pad it out some. There were times I wished I could have said "get to the point, already" but in general, it was an entertaining(ish) listen.
