Once again I have to say read the book-you won't be sorry! It is a fun way to escape from your ordinary world, but it goes way too fast. I am seeking the third book in the series to see where this team pops up next.
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.
The mystery keeps you guessing, and is laughable at times. I really like the series, but because of the language I am debating on whether to stay with the series.
