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.

    Story
    "Wild Women!!"
    What did you love best about Dixie Divas?

    I love these women, but what I love most is how they play off each other. One is more witty than the other, and they are always getting each other in trouble.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would like learning more about some of the other Divas.


    Did Karen Commins do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I think her accents and changing up the speed of her speech to match up to the character helps me know who is talking


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I am sometimes moved by the relationship of Trinket and Bitty and the things they will do for each other.

    "Such a fun murder mystery!"

    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!

    Story
    "Fun and Fluffy"
    Would you try another book from Virginia Brown and/or Karen Commins?

    I would definitely listen to more book narrated by Karen Commins. I thought Dixie Divas was enjoyable, but not necessarily something to which I would return, as the setting didn't grab me and there were some issues with the story that bothered me--particularly the way the characters play fast and loose with the police investigation.


    If you’ve listened to books by Virginia Brown before, how does this one compare?

    This was my first.


    Do you think Dixie Divas needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It was clearly meant as part of a series, and there is room for more. But I probably won't be reading them as it just wasn't quite my thing.


    Any additional comments?

    I really do not understand Southern women!

    Story
    "Nice and Fun Murder Mystery"

    I really enjoyed this sassy little murder mystery filled with divas, pets, family and friends and maybe even a teensy bit of history. Cute, catty and crazy scenarios make for a well written and well narrated story. I recommend this to any who need a lighthearted murder mystery to fill their time.
    I received this book as a free gift from the narrator and Audible. Thank you for a pleasant weekend.

    "Meh."

    This was not as great as I thought it would be. The narration was terrible and did not fit the characters in the book.

    "Descriptive"
    What would have made Dixie Divas better?

    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.

    Story
    "Good light Book"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    bitty and chien ling. I just got a kick how she fell in love with her.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Narrator awful!"
    What would have made Dixie Divas better?

    Different narrator! The voice and accent make listening , horrible. I like the story line, but can't get any farther than 2 hours into


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different narrator, or lose the FAKE southern accent!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment due to narration


    Any additional comments?

    Waste of a credit! Now have to buy Kindle version to finish the book

    I loved this book from the first minute. The narration for me leaves a little to be desired in the beginning but I loved the entire series!
