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.

    "Easy Read- Good Plot"

    I liked the story, I am glad I kept listening, but I had a really hard time with the narration... not a huge fan of this woman's voice. That was the only drawback, but when you are LISTENING to a story, it is a huge part!! So if you can get past the narration, the plot is good

    "Too Fluffy"

    I like light mysteries but this is just fluff. The plot was ridiculous and the characters annoying. One of the main characters, who was the murder suspect, never took anything series. I also find it far fetched that someone inv loved in a murder case would make all of her friends accessories after the fact and that they would be willing to be a participate. The book just didn't make since. Do not buy this book. It wasn't even funny. After lisstening to half of the book I finally skipped to the end. Even that was a waste of time. Don't bother with one.

    "BORING!"

    Chapter 2! That's how far i got in this book....I couldn't bare listening to the narrator drone on in her monotone voice (used for every character) any longer! Also, the overly descriptive writing was exhausting. There is definitely a limit to the amount of adjectives needed when describing ANYTHING!

    "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.

    "Cute Story with a lot of Problems"

    I disliked the narrator's Southern accent. It sounded like she used the same accent for all people regardless of their ethnicity or economic status. The story would have been richer if she had nuanced the accents, and less annoying if she had just read it without any accents.

    That said, the story was lighthearted and fun. Personally, I enjoyed the over the top Southern stereotypes. It was not a page-turner but neither was it a chore to read. My only serious issue was that I felt the ending was a real stretch and not explained well. I felt that it ended unsatisfactorily.

    I purchased this on a sale and will wait for the others in the series to go on sale rather than using a credit to purchase them.

    I enjoy mysteries, NOT thrillers, contemporary fiction, especially about diverse cultures, and sometimes history, if it doesn't involve too many dates. I often listen to a book multiple times, discovering unnoticed details in the retelling.

    "Getting past dreadful "southern" accent a challeng"
    What did you like best about Dixie Divas? What did you like least?

    the story was pretty good once I stopped grating my teeth on that fake southern accent of the narrator. the characters were interesting, as well.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Karen Commins’s performances?

    I'd be reluctant!


    Any additional comments?

    This was a "light" listen, and worth the sale price, but certainly not worth a whole credit!

    "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.

    "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.
