Publisher's Summary

An’gel and Dickce Ducote tend to stay put in Athena, Mississippi, but a wedding is a good reason to say a temporary farewell to Charlie Harris' cat, Diesel, and go visit relatives. But while their stay in Louisiana is scorching hot, the atmosphere at the wedding is downright cold, with bride-to-be Sondra Delevan putting her trust fund above little things like love and loyalty. When a violent storm supposedly sweeps Sondra off a balcony to her death, the sisters discover that many of the guests attending the wedding had major reasons to object to Sondra’s marriage. Now it’s up to An’gel and Dickce to use their down-home instincts to expose dubious alibis, silver-plated secrets, and one relentless murderer who lives for “till death do us part”.

Ouch!

Where does Dead with the Wind rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's a pleasant cosy, which is what I bought it for.

If you’ve listened to books by Miranda James before, how does this one compare?

Mediocre - I missed Diesel the Maine Coon cat.

Would you be willing to try another one of Jorjeana Marie’s performances?

NO! While I'm not familiar enough with Southern accents to comment, her persistent mispronunciation of basic French words like "maman", "tante", and even "Ducote", the surname of two of the main characters, was wince-worthy.

Entertaining

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Just what I wanted: light entertainment.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The taste of the South

Do you think Dead with the Wind needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Oh, yes! I want to see what the sisters get up to next.

Narrative

Really enjoyed this audio except for the "voice" of child. That grated on my last nerve.

Fantastic!

This was such a good book I hated for it to end. The characters were believable, enough detail so you felt like part of the story but not to much to keep up with. I can't wait for the next one!!
