Down and Dead in Dixie ~ Review

Down and Dead in Dixie
By Vicki Hinze

Down and Dead in Dixie is the first book in the Down and Dead, Inc. series.  And this is quite the series debut.

Daisy Grant's life has been anything but easy and it just got a whole lot more complicated.  After witnessing a murder Daisy needs to die fast or she will be murdered.  So what's a girl to do?  Well, in Daisy's case botching up your own death is a good place to start.

With the police, FBI, and the mafia all looking for her Daisy needs to disappear fast and protect those she most cares about.  Daisy's not use to dying so she may take a couple times to get it right.  But when you're being hunted you don't get second chances to die right.

Daisy's neighbor Lester is just too much and the more he's in the book the wackier and more endearing he becomes.  Though Daisy has been alone all her life, she surprisingly finds herself not so alone as she thought herself.

If this book is any indication of this series and its direction it should be a very entertaining diversion for a long weekend or a warm summer afternoon.  I really hope to read more Down and Dead stories with Daisy/Lily/Rose and Mark/Matthew.  Read the book and you'll get it.

I was provided  a copy of this book by the author through BookFun.org/TBCN in exchange for honest review.


About the Book:
To live, sometimes ya gotta die! Daisy Grant is in a heap of trouble. She stumbles into a mob turf war and now somebody wants her dead. Daisy may be small-town to the bone, not at all the kind of woman to deal with the Southern Mafia, but she knows how to get creative fast!

Enters the way-too-attractive Mark Jensen… He didn’t mean to rescue anybody, and he certainly didn’t mean to go on the run because of a stubborn, sassy woman. Soon they are up to their ears in so many wacky characters they don’t know who’s on their side. Daisy and Mark decide that to live, sometimes ya gotta die. And sometimes to die right takes . . . practice.

Clean Read: This book is suitable for most readers.
