What the Critics Say

"Authentic dialogue and a strong Texas flavor nicely complement the slapstick tone of Cash's rollicking debut romance featuring Debbie Sue Overstreet." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Better than expected"

    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.

    "Good Texas Love Story"

    If you are a Texan you will enjoy this book. If you are not a Texan you will learn how it is to live in a small Texas town.

    "Don't miss this one"

    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!!!

    Story
    "Poor storyline and painful narration."

    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.

    "Entertaining. Good mystery."
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I like that you don't know until the very end "who done it".


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    I like this author's style of writing,.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    Very interesting method of discovery.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    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.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    I will continue to listen to the rest of her books. I hope she writes more.

    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Disapointing"
    What disappointed you about Since You're Leaving Anyway, Take Out the Trash?

    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.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dixie Cash again?

    No

    "Great for some good laughs!"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "If You Are A Young Cowgirl, This Is For You!"

    And since I am neither young, nor a horsewoman, it is not for me. The narrator reads clearly but very slowly. Our heroine is a young, beautiful and impetuous Texas hairdresser, who internally stomps around without taking much else into consideration. She is surrounded by patient understanding folks who recognize her longing for her ex-husband, the handsome Sheriff. I am not saying that this isn't a story for anyone, I just couldn't listen far beyond the beginning. Too much of a bodice ripper for my taste. Good Luck.
