Trouble in Dixie is a light cozy mystery novel. While the second book in the series, it can be read alone (easily). I found the story easy to read and to have a good flow. I also appreciated the beautiful old Southern setting of Savannah, Georgia. However, I found the story to be lackluster (lacked dimension). The focus is on romance (what is happening to cozy mysteries). The mystery portion (what there is of it) is easily solved. Most of the mystery plays out, but the bad guy can easily be picked out. I wanted more solid content and less thinking about handsome Mitch Lawson. Less repetition about Julia’s background would also have been appreciated (from old money, good family, etc.). I am rating Trouble in Dixie 3 out of 5 stars. I was entertained by Trouble’s chapters. I liked Trouble more in Trouble in Dixie than I did in Familiar Trouble. He was light-hearted and humorous. Aunt Ethel was a hoot. I wish she had been the main character (an eccentric older woman). Trouble in Dixie is a cute story, but I am just not the right audience. I like more mystery in my cozy mysteries. If I wanted that much romance (where it dominates the book), I would pick up a romance novel.
This book has the mystery, romance, and plenty of intrigue regarding the valuable Russian art that is stolen right in Savannah. Trouble, the son of the famous feline detective, Familiar, is once again on the case before his bipeds get into serious trouble, pun intended!
The author does a great job of introducing the subject of Russian art to readers. She does give information about the artist so the reader can do further research. Julia and Mitch are very interesting characters that I would love to get know them better in future adventures. These books can be read as stand alone books because each book has its own fully developed plot line. This fact alone makes this series so much fun to read!
The two drawbacks of this story is the slow pacing of the characters throughout the book. I had re-read a couple of pages to make sure that I did not miss any clues and conversation, which I did not. Another drawback is that Trouble was not featured enough in this mystery. I love Trouble's detection skills and his Sherlockian viewpoints about the crimes. I had forgotten our famous feline friend was in the story in the latter half of the story.
Overall, this book is a good afternoon light read. I cannot wait to see what adventures that Trouble will find. I was given an ARC for a honest review.
It was an enjoyable cozy read with some interesting twists, red herrings and clues that kept me guessing. A strong mystery plot that was fast paced, suspects from high society to the Russian mafia, and just a little romantic distraction for Julia and Mitch. Trouble was again a hero as he continued to use his "superior" detection skills to guide Julia throughout this case of art theft and murder. I have to confess that my favorite character in this book is Julia's Aunt Ethyl. She was wonderful as only a "woman of a certain age" can be in her honesty about herself and others. She often made me laugh with her observations. She also made a great team with Trouble as they raced at the end to help solve the case.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. All of the above opinions are my own.
