"Authentic dialogue and a strong Texas flavor nicely complement the slapstick tone of Cash's rollicking debut romance featuring Debbie Sue Overstreet." (Publishers Weekly)
I wasn’t sure about this one because of the narrator (but you get used to her.) The story is great and I loved the characters and the town of Salt Lick, TX. She gives great descriptions and you can visualize everything. If you love the Texas “twang” and countryside you will really enjoy this book. A definite winner.
SUPERB!!! I loved this story and I think the narrator is very good. I would love to hang out with the charecters in this book! Be sure to read the "trash" book first because this story reflects back to it. I LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!!
Yes. It is a easy, light read and funny as all get out.
No I have not listened to her before but I will be on the lookout for her, I really enjoyed her enthusiasm and the smile in her voice.
Take out the trash, honey
I tried listening to the second book in this series but could not stomach it. This is supposed to be a cozy mystery...in other words, no four letter words. It should be listed in the cheap romance category. The second book is not worth your time.
it was entertaining enough. .. since I am southern her southern humorous expressions were nothing new to me
The descriptions of the stories in this series prompted me to put several of the Dixie Cash novels on my wish list. I am about halfway through this first one, and I won't be purchasing any of the others. I like a good cozy, and I'm a fan of "chick lit," too, but there is no story to this mystery. The main character has one piece of information dropped in her lap, and that's about as far as her "detection" goes. On top of that, the language is deplorable. Ms. Cash drops the "F bomb" with a predictability that becomes tedious very quickly. I know some strong native Texas women, and they are nothing like the herd of stereotypical double-first-name women created by Ms. Cash. Given the cost of publishing a book today, I have a hard time believing that any publisher saw profit potential in this plot, let alone the finished product. The editor should be fired!
As far as the narration is concerned, I have to agree with other reviewers who found Peggity Price's performance lacking. Ms. Price also narrates the "Darling Dahlia" series by Susan Wittig Albert, and her performance in that series is outstanding. Here, however, each sentence is separated by a long pause that creates a distracting disjointed flow in the story.There are em-dash pauses in some sentences where there wouldn't -- or shouldn't -- even be a comma. Whoever edited the audio did a great disservice to Ms. Price's talent.
At this point I am planning to return this title, and I cannot recommend it to other readers.
I like that you don't know until the very end "who done it".
I like this author's style of writing,.
Very interesting method of discovery.
The accent is just a little over the top. Being from Texas, and having lived in West Texas, while the accents are pretty thick, this just isn't the way most people sound.
I will continue to listen to the rest of her books. I hope she writes more.
This book is light - fluff really, but not everything needs to have deep meanings. The Dixie Cash, Domestic Equalizer series lets you step down from the day-to-day cares.
This was touted as a "hilarious, fun book", but the humor is trite and the writing is juvenile. The narration is flat and unimaginative at best. Ms. Price's lisp is a little disconcerting as well.
I thought this was a very cute, light-hearted story with some laugh out loud dialog. If you are looking for something fun in the chick lit department, this book is perfect. The narrator didn't drive me nuts like she did others, but she did pause a lot. Don't let that sway your decision - it is still a great listen.
