Eureka Truevine has moved back home to the small town of Cherry Hill, Mississippi after the divorcing her husband to care for her mother and father. In Cherry Hill, Eureka can be herself. Everyone there calls her Trinket. Cherry Hill isn’t that far from Holly Springs.
Every April the town of Holly Springs hosts a tour of restored, historical houses. Trinket’s good friend, Bitty Hollandale is the biggest promoter of these tours. She just loves a really good historical home. This is why she plans to do everything she can to get Sherman Sanders to participate in the home tour.
Bitty heads to Mr. Sanders place to try and bride him with some homemade chicken and dumplings. When she gets there, Mr. Sanders is gone and lying on the floor in a pool of blood is her ex-husband. Bitty runs away but instead of going to the police like she should she enlists the help of the Dixie Divas. The Dixie Divas are a group of southern belles, who love to party and eat chocolate. No men are invited unless they are providing the entertainment. The women range from age forty to mid sixties. You can bet though that where the Dixie Divas are involved that mischief and mayhem will follow in their wake.
Dixie Divas is a great start to a brand new series by author Virginia Brown. All of the divas are so much fun. They are the crazy grandmas who love to have fun and who you wished was your grandma. Dixie Divas is southern comedy at its best! So if you have a few extra hours to spare in your schedule, make sure you put it to good use by checking out a copy of this book. I can’t wait to read the next book in this wonderful series.
