"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 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.
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.
yes I would recommend this book to a friend because it's a decent, light mystery
this is my first book by Dixie Cash
Easy to tell the characters apart
i don't know
It's a bit of a bodice ripper to me, but several of my friends enjoy the romance mixed in with the mystery.
Any book by Janet Evanovitch
She has the ability to put you in west Texas.
I truly enjoyed this book. The narroration was great, the story was engaging. I am looking forward to the next book.
This was not a book that held me spellbound. In fact, a number of times, I debated whether to bother finishing it. The fact that I did finish it, says something about the story. The characters were reasonably well fleshed out and that kept me reading. I enjoyed those quirky characters.I also liked the visual of old-fashioned gas pumps dressed up in women's clothing, but that's about the only part of the setting that 'rose' off the page. The wrap-up was totally predictable ... a forgone conclusion. The scattered ends (read supporting characters), as well as the main ones, were all tied up neatly, as the mathematics of the sexes resolved as easily as simple edition. Definitely the
I rather doubt I would read/listen to another of these books.
The narrator was my chief peeve. Her voice was fine and her mastery of the Texas twang was admirable, but the slow, measured pauses after nearly every sentence, as well as many of the phrases, nearly drove me away. I do like pauses and natural voice interpretation but, when it got to the point that I kept checking my iPod to see if it had shut itself off, that was just too much.
The story would have flowed much more smoothly for me if the narrator had sounded more natural. In fact, I may have had a better over-all reaction with someone else telling the story.
I won't listen to anything with this narrator again.
The pauses between each sentence and at wrong times completely destroyed the book's flow and story. I think there was humor and likeable characters, but it was just hard to tell with the narration.
Dixie Cash has a way with words, most of them hysterical. I thought the narration was great. Nuff said.
