When hunky firefighter Justin Sadler's late wife, Rachel, appears to be trying to communicate from beyond the grave with refrigerator magnets in the pseudonymous Cash's (Curing the Blues with a New Pair of Shoes
) wacky sixth novel, Justin asks the Domestic Equalizers, Debbie Sue Overstreet and Edwina Perkins-Martin, of Salt Lick, Tex., to determine whether his house is really haunted. Debbie Sue and Ed, who also own the Styling Station beauty salon, accept the challenge, while a young teacher moonlighting as a mentalist, Sophia Paredes, who's the granddaughter of a recently deceased El Paso psychic, also agrees to help Justin. Adding some skullduggery to the ghostly goings-on is Justin's greedy brother-in-law, who covets the mineral rights of Justin's ranch. Cash (Texas sisters Pamela Cumbie and Jeffery McClanahan) neatly mixes woo-woo weirdness and romance with the gosh-darn Texas humor fans expect from this light crime series. (June)

In the latest crazy, Texas-based Domestic Equalizers adventure, someone has been messing with Justin’s head, and though his heart tells him it’s the ghost of his beloved wife, Rachel, his brain tells him it can’t possibly be—or can it? Her favorite blanket is found mysteriously draped across the sofa as if Rachel had just taken a nap, her rings turn up on the kitchen table, and her signature “company’s coming” yellow roses magically appear in a crystal vase. As if these signs weren’t unsettling enough, magnetic letters affixed to the refrigerator start spelling out meaningful messages. Although not the kind of case Cash’s Domestic Equalizers usually encounter, Edwina and Debbie Sue are sufficiently perplexed by Justin’s predicament to accept the challenge. But first they call in some extra help in the extrasensory department, the granddaughter of a well-known psychic whose powers help lonely-guy Justin solve all his problems. Because Cash’s stylin’ sleuths pour on their trademark saucy innuendos and infectious glee, this installment delivers a rollicking good ride. --Carol Haggas
