Dix is a P.I. who has started her own firm after figuring out that she can't ever become more than a gofer in a traditional firm in the male dominated private investigator business. She's determined to succeed and relies mostly on her amazing intuition, along with her disguise ability and just plain inability to stop until it's done. I fell in love with the supporting characters, they're a hoot. We have the brilliant hunky assistant, who has a backstory of his own, and Mrs. Presley, the owner of a skuzzy, rent by the hour motel who wears blue suede shoes and has a heart of gold, as long as you don't cross her. Then we have the Mrs. Presley's sons-two behemoths who still need their mama, and Dix's mom, an outrageous woman with a story of her own (she was a magician's assistant for years before she married and claims she learned to do real magic.)
I liked the first book better. Which you should read before this one anyway. The first was a murder mystery which had more twists and turns and action than this one about stolen jewelry. Or it could just be me OD'ing, I bought this one and read it immediately after reading Flashing Fashion because I wanted more! Or maybe it's because there's just not going to be as much action in a story set in a retirement village...
In any event, N.L. Wilson has made it to my favorite author list and I look forward to the next Dix Dodd mystery.
Jewelry has gone missing, a man has vanished into thin air and the cops are pinning it all on Dix's mom. Dix's mom insists she didn't steal anything and the missing man isn't missing. He just got turned into a frog. Hilarious!
If you like Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, you're going to LOVE Dix Dodd.
I'm glad to say that I was wrong - this book was brilliant!! I was up until 4am reading this as I just needed to see Dix Dodd our wonderful Private Investigator unfold the mystery.
We start off with Dix in her new office with all new modern gadgets, still with the delightful Dylan as her trusty sidekick. Her new fax machine brings news that her Mother, Katt Dodd is a person of interest in recent jewel thefts at the Wildoh retirement community!! Not to mention the disappearance of Katt's boyfriend Frankie!
Dix and Dylan set off for Florida - with Mrs P in tow - I laughed so much at the car journey to Florida with Mrs P and her `crossword' clues. There was lots of wit in these scenes, very well written. And also a theme which re-occurs later on in the book.
Once we meet Katt and some of the other resident's of the Wildoh things really started to get good - plenty of undercover work from both Dix and Dylan - although Dix wasn't expecting to go undercover on this occasion, I think she did well! There are some great scenes in this book - one of my favourite one's is Dix in the restaurant with Deputy No Nuts - just brilliant!
As I was reading I was convinced who the jewellery thief was, then changed my mind, and then changed it again!! Maybe its just me assessing each and every one of the new characters with scrutiny but I could see motives in them all!! I did however guess correctly how they were disappearing (once I knew who it was!) So I felt a bit better for that!Read more ›
