Drop Dead Divas by Virginia Brown

Genre: Cozy Mystery, Chick Lit
Format: EBook
Publisher: Bell Bridge Books
Release Date: September 2010-10-31

The Dixie Divas of Holly Springs, Mississippi are back and they discover another dead body. It’s been several months since one of their own Divas’, Bitty, was accused of murdering her ex-husband. Now, another murder has taken place and this time it’s the fiancĂ© of the woman who broke up Bitty’s marriage. Bitty couldn’t be more happier to see the “other” woman, Naomi Spencer, be the prime suspect this time. The tables turn when Naomi is found dead and, once again, Bitty is blamed for the murder.

When Trinket Truevine first moved to Mississippi she never thought she’d be tossed into the middle of murder investigations. Her plan was simple – leave behind her ex-husband and take care of her aging parents, but plans are never simple when you enter the world of the Dixie Divas. Not only is Bitty her cousin, but she’s her very best friend. There is no way she can sit back and watch her friend get thrown in jail for a crime she didn’t commit.

Bitty, Trinket, and the rest of the Divas go on a crazy search for the killer, but when they find themselves as the killer’s target, they wonder what is really happening. As Bitty finds herself facing financial ruin, Trinket is determined to clear her of all suspicion.

This is a fun, light-hearted cozy mystery. It’s a bit of a cross between cozy mystery and chick lit. The characters are all hysterical and even Bitty’s dog, Chen Ling is a riot. This is LOL entertainment. The Dixie Divas’ antics can brighten up the darkest of days. I really enjoyed this fast-paced mystery.

Just as a side note, this is the second book in this series. I haven’t read the first, but I was able to quickly get acclimated to the characters and the storyline. I do wish I had read the first book just to get more background on the main character, Trinket Truevine, but it didn’t do anything to ruin the story for me.

For Reading Challenges:

Chick Lit


  1. I added the first book in this series to my wish list!

  2. Cute cover!
    Good that you could just jump in without having read book 1, I like when an author manages with that
