Format: Paperback
"Dixie Divas," by award winning author Virginia Brown, is book one of the Diva Series. The Divas are a group of 12 women from the small town of Cherry Hill, Mississippi, about 45 minutes from Memphis, Tennessee. Membership stays as 12, those who drop out, die, or move away are replaced by a majority vote. This eclectic group holds a very private monthly meeting with chocolate and alcohol being the main staples.

In Book One, we meet main characters of Eureka Truevine, aka Trinket, a 51 year old divorcee who just moved back to Cherry Hill to take care of her parents and her cousin Elisabeth Truevine Hollander age 52, aka Bitty, and recently divorced from her fourth husband Senator Hollander. We also get to see get the history of the area and the people, and great descriptions of a slice of southern small town living.

In this well-written murder mystery, the Senator ends up dead and police suspect Bitty. From an old family secret to a traitorous Diva, Trinket and Bitty manage to solve the mystery and find a bit of love just before they end up like the Senator. With the flavor of the Ya-Ya sisters and the Sweet Potato Queens, this contemporary, romantic mystery is a true southern delight. With lots of history about the area and descriptions of southern living and cooking, this story keeps the reader entertained and mystified until the end.

I read this book because it was free. I had no idea what to expect from it though. I had fun reading it and at times (especially when the Diva's were up to their escapades) the movie 9 to 5 with Lilly Tomlin and Dolly Parton came to mind. It was an easy read with a fun little mystery line. Worth a read!

Format: Paperback
As I read Dixie Divas, I had to wonder what a few hours with a good editor might do for this book. I can accept that the characters and plot are ridiculous, but not the many errors, inconsistencies and repetition. If it had been better written, Dixie Divas could have been as entertaining as a Janet Evanovich mystery, but with a southern twist. I found the several errors distracting. Just a few were: (i) at one point, the main character, Trinket, reminds us that she last saw another character at the Divas meeting, when that is not the case, (ii) Trinket also refers to the dead senator as her ex-brother in law, but he was married to her cousin, not her sister, and (iii) she refers to "imminent" domain (it's "eminent" domain in the US). There is also a distracting thread about Sanders having no will, and an heir having been discovered, but at the end, he leaves property to a foundation, so there must have been a will. There are repetitive descriptions of the same person/situation throughout, using the same words and phrases again and again. In the end, I found it tiresome. For those looking for a hilarious southern mystery series, I would recommend the Southern Sisters mysteries instead. Since I got this book on my Kindle for $3.99, and I see that the price has increased significantly, I can only hope that the additional price reflects the cost incurred in better editing the book and that it has been cleaned up.

i got this for free, so i really can't complain much, but i have to admit to being disappointed. i enjoy books about strong, unconventional women, but this is not one of them. the narrating character, trinket, "talked" a lot, but her behavior didn't match her words. none of the characters had much focus, verbally wandering off in the middle of crises in a way that was supposed to be charming but was instead just irritating. the eccentrics, which are indeed embraced with enthusiasm in the south, are shallow and colorless. i wish ms. brown well, but i do not think i will be joining her flat version of divas from dixie on any more "adventures" in mediocrity any time soon. bless their hearts.

This is one of those Southern cozies that you're either going to relax and get into the groove with and totally enjoy, or you're going to hang onto your tightly wrapped expectations and hate it. The people who call these ladies "unbelievable characters" obviously never met any real Southern women. I could see vignettes of almost everyone I know in these pages (good or bad). I applaud Virginia for her publishing success...it's tough to find an agent and publisher who understands the unique flavor of a truly Southern book. Love 'em or hate 'em, the Dixie Divas are not only unique but 'real.'

I bought this book because it was cheap and the descriptive paragraph intrigued me. I really got more than I expected and way more than my money's worth. It was serious, funny, totally southern. I can see these things happening to me and my friends. I'm sure some people would say that it was a stretch of the imagination, but they obviously have never been down south. I really loved this book. It made you feel good to read it. I think everyone should give it a chance. Remember it is cheap and maybe didn't get all the editing attention it needed...some missed words, etc. Just overlook it and go on...you know what they are saying. Loved it.

You get what you pay for. This was a Kindle freebie and it was overpriced. There was just enough mystery to keep me reading, but this is a great example of a book in need of an editor. Verb tense changes from present to past and back to present (often in one paragraph), glaring mistakes, and rambling rabbit chasing made it difficult to hang with this book. I think with a lot of trimming and cleaning up, it could have been a fun mystery, but sadly it fell short.
