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.

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
