Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The Domestic Equalizers take on Manhattan in Cash's latest big hair blitz. Edwina Perkins-Martin and Debbie Sue Overstreet run a beauty salon and the only PI agency in Salt Lick, Tex. The invitation to speak at the annual conference of the NAPI (National Association of Private Investigators) comes as a surprise, but Edwina and Debbie Sue accept since the NAPI's going to pop for the expenses and pony up an honorarium. Meanwhile in Dime Box, Tex., Celina Phillips dreams of becoming a PI and also decides to attend. The three meet and the rest is cornpone kismet when a crime occurs right next to their hotel room, and Celina falls for a sexy NYPD detective. Cash (pseudonym for a sister writing team) crams her latest caper with such wackiness that the contrived plot can almost be excused, but Edwina and Debbie Sue are often so silly that they're downright annoying.

From Booklist

Making it in the Big Apple is the last thing Cash’s dynamic duo, Debbie Sue Overstreet and Edwina Perkins-Martin—aka the “Domestic Equalizers”—of Salt Lick, Texas, have in mind, but when they receive a surprise invitation to speak at the National Association of Private Investigators at a swank Manhattan hotel, the gals are off as fast as their pink ostrich-leather boots can carry them. Having befriended Celina, a down-on-her-luck fellow Texan, along the way, Debbie Sue and Edwina quickly become embroiled in a murder investigation in which the prime suspect is one of New York City’s most respected cops. As if that’s not dicey  enough, his partner has just fallen head-over-heels in love with Celina. The usual mayhem and merriment ensue as the Domestic Equalizers wreak havoc trying to bring the cop to justice—and score some fine Jimmy Choos while they’re at it. Quick witted, fast paced, and plain old fun, Cash’s madcap series just keeps getting better. --Carol Haggas

More 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.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on June 1, 2008
Format: Paperback
Although they were second choice, Salt Lick, Texas private investigators Debbie Sue Overstreet and Edwina Perkins are thrilled to be invited to speak a at the National Association of P.I.s convention in New York City. Besides a free trip, they plan to investigate all the latest sleuthing gadgetry and designer shoes; not that they can afford any with their beauty parlor being their moneymaker.

The dynamic detecting Domestic Equalizer duo makes friends with natives such as some ladies like Cher who work the street for a living and visitors from Texas like mugging victim Celina. Although they swore no cases while enjoying a bite of the Big Apple, Debbie Sue and Edwina end up in the middle of an NYPD serial killer inquiry in which the murderer considers targeting two dizzy detective dames from Texas.

The latest Domestic Equalizer mystery (see MY HEART MAY BE BROKEN, BUT MY HAIR STILL LOOKS GOOD and SINCE YOU'RE LEAVING ANYWAY, TAKE OUT THE TRASH) is more a culture war between rural Texas and urban Manhattan. The bets are on the two zany Salt Lick hair stylists. As always in this series, the lead duet try to do the right thing as they perceive that to be, but most often cause more problems for those they want to save and leads to plenty of humor. Readers will appreciate the Texas-Manhattan encounter as Debbie Sue and Edwina bring their hearts and humor to Times Square.

I do have one complaint about the writers, though. They just don't get them out fast enough. I loved, loved this book. My concern at first was that I would not get to see enough of Ed and Debbie Sue once the secondary character was introduced. They take Celina under their wing but they are all involved with the madness that happens in New York.

The reviewer from Publisher's Weekly who called Ed and Debbie Sue "silly" must not have any speck of a sense of humor. Don't pay attention to that part of the review. Dixie Cash fans will not be disappointed.

Format: Paperback
I don't know about you, but when I am not feeling good and having to take care of sick kiddos and hubby, let alone trying to get over the flu, the last thing you want to read is something heavy and profound. This book fits the bill. It's not a heavy thinking book. I didn't need to figure out how it was going to end because I knew how it was going to end but I didn't care ... it's a fluffy book with a lot of wise-cracks by two ornery women. (If there is a stereotype of people, this book would definitely fit the bill ... I never thought of Texan women but now, I can't get those twangy accents out of my head!)

I have no idea how this book came into my possession, but it fit the bill for a day like today in between doing the laundry and changing the sheets and comforting a sick kid. If I wasn't sick, I wouldn't have given this book the time of day.

This book is about two women from Texas who was invited to NYC to do a presentation at a conference on how to be a detective. They meet up with a prostitute named Cher and a young girl who was robbed the day she arrived in NYC, named Celina, who is also from Texas. Someone gets murdered and the two women, Debbie Sue and Edwina happened to be in the thick of things. They solve the murder but not without causing a lot of havoc to the hotel they're at and without a lot of cussing.

It's an ok novel but not the best.

Don't Make Me Choose Between You and My Shoes is a funny book in the Domestic Equalizers series written by authors Dixie Cash. It's the first time that I've read a book by them, but it won't be the last.

As soon as I read this, I downloaded three more of Dixie Cash's books to my Kindle and look forward to more. They are some of the most entertaining books I've ever read.
