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)

    "OK"

    This book sounded good, but I was a little dissappointed in the whole story. It was cute and had some fun characters and a happy ending, the narrator just about did me in. I could hear her swallowing and she paused in the wrong places- it was very distracting. The story would have earned another star if it had another narrator who could really play up the characters.

    "Good story, bad narration"

    Although I did enjoy the story line - very light, not much character development - the narration was often painful. She would pause in the middle of a sentence and, thus, the sentence would lose its meaning and intent. She is a very slow reader, which was painful to me as I listened to the story. I have had an Audible subscription for six years now, and this is the first review I've felt compelled to write. I listen to about one book each week during my commute to work.

    "Pause Pause"

    The story is really cute, but the narrator drove me nuts with all the pauses. She stopped between each sentence like a robot reading the story.

    "falls short"

    Ugh. Despite a lot of promise this book falls short due to the poor narration. The reader will read one line, pause, read the next line, pause, etc. It was simply impossible to listen to as the herky-jerky reading makes you want to pull out your hair.

    "Delightfully Entertaining"

    From the beginning I was captured by the author's use of "Texas" colloquialisms. I found myself laughing out loud with "glued zippers" and allergies. Add this to your list this is a fun and entertaining book!

    "Loved it...."

    I was hesitant to buy this book due to the negative comments about the narrator. I am so glad I did, I loved the story and the narrator. I know people who sound just like this narrator, I grew up in a small rural Texas town and this book nailed life in a small town. It is laugh out loud funny.

    Story
    "Be warned, NOT a cozy... tons of foul language."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This author could have eased up on the foul language and taking God's name in vain. It's a shame because I would have enjoyed this series but as it is I won't be listening to any more.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dixie Cash again?

    No


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The story wasn't bad.


    Any additional comments?

    A wolf in sheep's clothing.

    Story
    "Don't judge the book by its title"

    I thought this book was going to be as corny as it's title but I was wrong. This was an interesting and well plotted book. The characters were likable and relatable. The plot was interesting and funny. The narrator, Peggity Price, did a good job with the accent and the voices for each character. Although I have high praise for this book, I did feel like there was too much talking. I felt that the book was a little too much romance novel and not enough mystery novel. I'm hoping that in the next book it will be a little more mystery. If not I will still probably buy the third and possibly the rest of the books in the series because the so far I like what I have started.

    "Great Fun!"

    I laughed out loud while I listened to this one!
    I immediately bought the rest of the series.
    I am very sorry that the one that came out in 2009 is not available on audible.
    Audible...If you are listening..PLEASE GET IT!
    Anything by Dixie Cash is gold!
