Down and Dead in Dixie by Vicki Hinze


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.

Vicki Hinze knows her way around a cozy mystery! Her new novel "Down and Dead in Dixie" brings delightful characters to life in a story that has more twists and turns than the infamous Winchester Mystery House.


Daisy lost more than the heel of her shoe behind that dumpster. In fact, she's pretty much lost everything, including her name, once she witnesses a mob hit of epic proportions. Now she's forced to relocate, change her identity, and find a new job...all without a clue to guide her. Maybe if she was to find a clue or two, she could get her life back?


Not if handsome hero Mark Jensen has any say in the matter. He didn't know when he rescued this particular damsel in distress how distressing his own life would become! Daisy/Lily doesn't have the hidden in plain sight thing down, which works out well. Seems Mark doesn't have the whole handsome stranger to the rescue part figured out either. But he does have her best interest in mind...question is can he capture her heart along the way?


Now he and Daisy...I mean...Lily Nichols, are deep under cover and trying to avoid detection by the multitude wanting them found. Or even better...dead.


Mayhem, hilarity and a good clean story: that's what you'll find between the covers of "Down and Dead in Dixie." I'm giving this one five out of five stars.
