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.
