The bestselling DIXIE DIVAS mystery series continues!

Trinket and her pals are, once again,

caught in the middle of a murder scene...

"Professor Sturgis is dead."

"Hah!" replied my cousin/best friend/partner in mayhem. "I'm not that lucky."

"It's true," I said as I pointed to her son's dorm room closet. "Look for yourself. But I warn you-it's not a pretty sight."

Recommends it for: fans of cozy murder mysteries.
After Trinket discovers a body in Bitty's sons' dorm room, Bitty decides it would be better if the body was found somewhere else. In true Weekend at Bernie's fashion they load the body into a laundry cart and wheel it across the Ole Miss campus, finally unloading it into a moving truck.

Problem solved? Not really. A murderer is on the loose and Trinket and Bitty have now become a target. With a little help from the other Dixie Divas, they set about solving the mystery and catching the murderer.

This is a charming, sometimes hilarious cozy mystery that combines good mystery making, plotting, scene setting and character development.

What happens when you put a dozen steel magnolias in the same place, at the same time, with the same goal? Well, it all begins with fireworks. As any reader of Southern literature knows, you do not mess with the only son (even if he’s an identical twin) of a Southern mother. That’s exactly what someone did, by hiding a body in the closet of Bitty’s son. From t

This was my first "Diva" story and it was pretty good. Virginia Brown does well to create a in- depth mystery that takes you on a whirlwind ride where several middle-aged women get themselves involved in, and then attempt to solve, the local murders. Even though this was not the first book in the series, I didn't feel like I was left with missing information as every character and previous backstory was written well into this story. However, I did feel the story tended to drag with too much, of ...more

Very fun book with lots of humor and antics. The mystery is a bit more complex than I tend to like my cozy mysteries, but it was lots of fun. I did start with this book instead of the first in the series, so the beginning was a bit odd and confusing at first. I'm looking forward to reading the first three books in the series.

I listened to the audio version and I thought Karen Commins did a pretty good job at narrating. Her southern accent wasn't too distracting and her characters were fun. The

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

I have had this series on my wishlist for a bit now, and when offered this for free, I was super excited!! I love a good cozy mystery, and this fits the bill,,,The Divas have a little ladies group who stumbled onto solving mysteries, and have ran into several dead bodies...this one put them in some danger...and if it wasn't for Bitty and her purse gun, they may have been goners!!!

Funny, and narrated nicely....I recommend,

My Review
It's been my absolute pleasure to listen to the first three books of this series, I awarded them all five stars, both for story and narrator. I didn't think they could get any funnier but this one did, it's hilarious.
You really need to be alone to listen because before you know it, you'll be laughing aloud.
Bitty is a real star, she is the queen of the outrageous statement and her convoluted and unusual solutions to problems (like finding

This series just continues to be great!

I listened to this as an audiobook. As with the other Dixie Divas books I've read so far, this had a true feel of the South.

I enjoy the development of the characters over the course of the series.

If you'd like a light-hearted mystery featuring authentic Southern heroines, this series is for you.

Trinket, Bitty and the Diva's are like returning home to see your old friends. Always entertaining, and humorous and finding trouble.

I enjoy the characters in this series a lot. This was another fun installment and took the cousins out of the confines of Holly Springs. The mystery was good and I took a bit longer to figure out the killer so I enjoyed that aspect as well. The audible narrator is very good making the story much easier to listen to

The Divas are becoming too predictable.I did like the first two books and it's good to end the series here,it was fun while it lasted.The stories really have that southern feel,anyone who is familiar with life in the South will enjoy them.
