Maybe it's because I live in Tennessee or maybe it's because I know ladies just like these ladies -- but I found these "Diva" books to be delightful, silly, and fun. They are murder mysteries but certainly different than any I've read/heard before. For those of you who are looking for intellectual, SERIOUS, thought-provoking books, maybe these aren't for you. But for those of you over-40 women who may have experienced a hot sunny summer afternoon of teenaged silliness with your girlfriends, having a Sonic frozen drink with a little boost while laying in the pool (problems put on hold for an afternoon) ... then you are going to love these books. For those of you who have NOT experienced that, for heaven's sake, do so soon! And listen to these books!
The Southern belles are at it again and it's just plain fun. The story is involved enough to keep you interested and guessing but the real treat is the characters and the narrator's accents. Listening to the trouble Trinket and Bitty get into is a little like watching Lucy and Ethel. This is another highly enjoyable listen. The quality of this story and narration means I will be enjoying this tale time and time again.
The narrator does so many different character voices it make you believe there are different people doing each character.
I like her reading each character in with a believable different voice.
Not really, I enjoyed it but I would need a break from time to time.
I just think theses books are a fun take on a murder mystery. I read so many thriller books that this one takes the serious tones out and makes it a little fun without any disrespect for the murder victim.
Bought this book to listen to because of the reviews. I, however, didn't "get it" as a book that kept my attention. I did listen to the entire book but it was a chore, not something I looked forward to as I usually do. Performance was good with all the southern accents but the story to me was stupid. If this is a series, I'm not a fan.
I would listen again. These are a little far out, but having spent alot of my life in the South, they're just fun to listen to.
She's good with the different voices.
People who enjoyed the first book.
Realistic characters, less focus on the dog.
Great voice animation and southern accent.
I am a proud Mexican woman that loves words and reading/listening to books. I also believe that only through knowledge can we achieve progress.
This is a great book with a lot of twists and turns and after listening to the first one I couldn't imagine how they could top it and she did!
The story is fantastic. Being from KY TN border, I know these ladies. Maybe different names but I went to church with all of these ladies.
Unfortuently, the narration is so poor that I suffered through this book and one other of the Divas. I'm not sure I can get through another, which is a shame because I really enjoy the stories. I was never sure what the emotion of the situation should be, it was all so monotone that it was hard to get the feel of the situation. The accents are somewhere between Southern (my native tongue) and a bad NJ accent.
