DIXIE DIVAS is the first book in a new southern series by popular author Virginia Brown.
Two brief quotes will give you an idea of the fun that is in store for readers of DIXIE DIVAS.
If not for long-dead Civil War Generals Ulysses S. Grant, Nathan Bedford Forrest, and a pot of chicken and dumplings, Bitty Hollandale would never have been charged with murder. Of course, if the mule hadn't eaten the chicken and dumplings, that would have helped a lot, too.
"You found my philandering ex-husband?" Bitty asked. "Where? Mexico? Paris? In Tupelo with a cocktail waitress?" "In your closet," I answered. "Dead."
Prepare to meet Eureka "Trinket" Truevine and her best Diva pal, Bitty Hollandale, two of the Dixie Divas of Holly Springs, Mississippi. Well, "Trinket" actually lives in Cherryhill, 3 miles outside of Holly Springs and about 45 minutes from Memphis, Tennessee. With Bitty's ex-husband dead in her coat closet, the Divas rally round to flush out the murderer before Bitty is done for the crime.
I fell in love with "Trinket" and Bitty instantly! I can hardly wait for their next adventure.
