No holiday in tiny Salt Lick, Texas, is more revered than January 8th—Elvis’s birthday! To commemorate the grand occasion, Hogg’s Drive-In—where the King enjoyed many a burger on the road to fame and fortune—is displaying an “actual” pair of Elvis’s blue suede shoes. That is, until some heel without a soul swipes them right out of their display case.

Debbie Sue Overstreet and Edwina Perkins-Martin—the shoe-loving Domestic Equalizers—are shocked that someone would perpetrate such a dastardly crime. So the plucky detecting duo agrees to help the town’s inept sheriff track down the royal blue loafers. And being majestic multitaskers, the ladies might even be able to squeeze in some matchmaking as well.

Mix-ups, mayhem, the threat of gunplay, and shocking octogenarian secrets revealed—it’s all in a day’s work for the Domestic Equalizers, the two best friends whose motto is: Don’t get mad … get evidence!

    " it was a good , mindless, quick read for a weekend. it was full of texas witt and hospitality. it could have been just as mindless, witty, and quick without all of the vulgar language though. "

    " Debbie Sue and Edwina enjoy the Elvis festival in their own little home town and become hosts to visitors who fall in love. I little predictable. "

    " i wanted to read a "light" book... this is definitely light. but maybe i'm just not a "light book" person... didn't enjoy it that much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Toni N | 1/18/2014

    " Hillarious, as always. I kinda predicted the twist. But, that was okay in this instance. It didn't ruin the story by any means. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindi (cheesygiraffe) | 1/17/2014

    " Not really a mystery at all but romance. Ed and Debbie Joe are funny gals. They're also great matchmakers. Nothing bad really happens in this one either. I was hoping for more excitement. And I wasn't surprised who stole Elvis's blue suede shoes. "

    " This book was good, but not as good as the previous books in this series. The story was slow getting started, rather than getting my attention from page one. There were some good recipes and facts included at the end of the book... "

    " Fun read, a little mystery, humor = cozy mystery. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Edie Leffingwell | 11/7/2013

    " A light-hearted crime-solver. I actually selected the book because I liked the cover. The old gals who own a beauty salon and detective agency take the cake! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Deb | 10/17/2013

    " This was a book club selection. I have read many bleh book club selections. But this rates up there with some of the worst. 291 pages of bad comedic banter. So full of stereotypical characters, situations, and dialog that I began to wonder....maybe it's meant to be a parody of bad writing??? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 9/13/2012

    " This is entertaining as are all of Dixie Cash's books. The mystery of who stole the Blue Suede shoes got a little lost in the romance though. "

About the Author

Dixie Cash is Pamela Cumbie and her sister Jeffery McClanahan. They grew up in West Texas during the great oil boom, an era filled with “real-life fictional” characters who cry to be written about. Pam has always had a zany sense of humor and Jeffery has always had a dry wit. Surrounded by cowboys and steeped in country-western music, when they can stop laughing long enough they work together creating hilarity on paper. Both live in Texas—Pam in the Fort Worth–Dallas Metroplex and Jeffery in a small town near Fort Worth.
