Initially this book has a slow start with a plot hard that is hard to believe since the main character, Dix Dodd, is a murder suspect although she has two witnesses who see her in front of the house while the victim is being murdered. The story lingers for a while, not here or there, and it doesn’t help that the reader doesn’t know much of the characters, this being the first book in the series. However the book has an amazing ending which pulls all of the contents of the book and all the characters together, making sense out of all the chapters of the book. By the end, you start to relate and care about most of the characters, see the big picture, and find yourself wanting to read more about these characters in the sequels. There are no graphic violence or sexual content in the book, but it was a major turn off for me reading way too many four letter words. Four and a half stars.
Thank you for writing such a classy witty detective novel. I stayed up all night to ginish..hurting next morning but glad I finished book.cant wait to read next one. Dixie Dodd is my new hero
The storyline itself was a fairly straightforward whodoneit, with a few added twists and turns. I never guessed the ending outright, which was nice. I wasn't kept in too much suspense, but it was fun to not know how everything was going to turn out while reading.
Overall, this is a great introduction to a fun and flirty series, full of laughable situations. I'm intrigued to see what adventures Dix and Dylan get up to next.
A wealthy client pays Dix $10,000 to tail her potentially cheating husband for one week. Easy money, she thinks, but that turns out not to be the case as she winds up the prime suspect in someone’s death.
Dix was easy to relate to for me, and I could see myself in many of the situations she found herself in. The supporting characters are interesting, particularly the hot 28 year-old-former lawyer who got disbarred for doing the right thing. He’s hot enough to make Dix, who’s 40, consider being a cougar. But he’s got a gift for dealing with cranky clients and she knows she’d be lost without him.
This was a fun, light mystery; I even laughed out loud a couple of times. I’ll be interested to see how the characters develop over the course of the series. Looks like there are at least three additional Dix Dodd books available. I’ll be getting them, and soon.
I liked that even though the book did have some serious points it maintained it's fun & quirky voice throughout.
The secondary characters were all fun & well developed, I especially liked Mrs. Presley. I enjoyed the atmosphere & back stories that were developed for everyone.
I get the whole cougar thing. Really I do. Forty and Flirty. Fifty & Nifty. Grey hair is sexy. I got it. However in this book the lead character was developed as a forty-something that really wasn't interested in sex. She enjoyed watching her assistant & that was a big part of her character, the semi-guilty glances and naughty fantasies, but getting a chance to follow through with the naughty assistant flies in the face of the character's established background & personality. Some may disagree mightily with me, but this book, this whole series would have been far better off if Dix kept her pants on, especially when it comes to the assistant.
