      Well, this is certainly NOT like a Stephanie Plum mystery, but it was a good read.

      To be honest, I probably wouldn’t normally pick a up a book called ‘Bitch Factor’ or even a book with bitch in the title. I’m not morally opposed or anything, it’s just generally not my cup of tea. Past my middle school years (when I was completely enthralled with all things John Grisham), I haven’t really been into many mysteries out side of cozy foodie/bookshop/coffeehouse kinds or the kind that aren’t always shelved in mystery like Carlos Ruiz Zafon and Kate Morton… literary a [...]

      I originally put this on my Recorded Books wishlist after listening to the superbly written Domestic Equalizers. This series is also fabulously narrated by Peggity Price.I wanted to hear more of what she'd voiced and looked her up on the audiobook site and found Chris Rogers and her creation of Dixie Flanagan. YAY! I'm not sure how long it might have taken me to find this fab thriller of a series otherwise. And I'd have missed out on some kind of cool bitch that is Dixie Flanagan. Now, I say 'bi [...]

      You know those books you just can't put down? Yeah, this isn't one of those. I think that's why it took me such a long time to read it. I can't really find any other reason.It's not a bad book. It's entertaining. It's the typical story you read on a bored summer vacation when you just don't want to think about anything and you need to get distracted. It's not trascendental. It's kind of slow. Things don't get actively interesting and there's no real action up until page 40 or so, and then gettin [...]

      A debut novel by an author who writes with authority, clarity, and tells a very good story. The title and cover hype shouldn’t put readers off. Someone has tried to position this female bounty hunter and ex assistant district attorney, into a hard-surfaced, prickly, woman who is supposed to have all the aggressive, macho attributes of some western male lawman. It isn’t true, which in no way detracts from a fine story or an interesting, worthwhile character.Dixie Flannigan is a Houston, Texas [...]

      If we were allowed half stars, I would give this a 2.5 I though this sounded like a copycat of the Plum series, but I decided to give it a try. The similarities are obvious, but the characters and settings are different enough that it isnt constantly screaming 'Plum rip-off'. The character is more like a combination of Cornwell's Scarpetta and Evanovich's Plum.There were a ton of loose ends in this book. I don't care to go into them all. I won't read another in this series, but it was ok enough [...]

      Entertaining read (listen). I wasn't sure what to make of this book at first, as one other reviewer mentioned, a kind of serious Stephanie Plum. I think the author could have set up the bounty hunter business better. And there is no explanation of how she managed to catch up and find a car which had a 5 hours head start (she finally manages in South Dakota after chasing from Texas)but, all things being equal it held my interest while spending way too much time trying to plow myself out from unde [...]

      I really liked this book as well as the sequel. I was always sad that the series didn't continue. The female Texan bounty hunter was strong and vulnerable without being cartooning. I also loved her doberman MAD - Mean Ass Dog. Very witty.

    • Judy King says:

      Excellent mystery -- certainly not a cozy, but still had a good deal of humor and heart -- the author kept me guessing with this Texas story right up to the end. Got a lot more than I expected with this one.

    • Michele bookloverforever says:

      liked the female protaganistbut the plot left something to be desired.

    • Kathy says:

      This is the first in a too short series involving a Houston, Texas female P.I. named Dixie Flanagan. It is well told, with a lot of action, humor and suspense. I loved this series!!!!!

    • Janis says:

      It was an OK change of pace from Stephanie Plum. Not funny like Evanovich, tho.

    • Patty says:

      I was looking for something to read at the time and came across Chris Rogers. Dixie is very entertaining in a serious sort of way. Kinda like Stephanie Plum but more serious.
