As always, a cute read featuring two of the nicest (and sometimes foul-mouthed) women this side of the Mississippi. I've read all of the Dixie Cash books featuring the Domestic Equalizers, and if you're looking for a "fluffy" yet fun read, these are for you.

The description pretty much says everything you need to know about the story. I did like that there was more interaction between our two hapless heroines this time around; the relationship between Debbie Sue and Edwina is what really makes th

Very light read. It won't change your life but it's funny and sweet. I really enjoyed it but it wrapped up a little too quick and a little too clean to give it four stars. I would read more from this author though.

Very weird book, totally stupid, but I read it anyway. Characters and situations were cartoonish. Still, it had me interested enough to see how it ended.

Perfect Book for October!

A man is haunted by his dead wife...really? Maybe but for sure she is being aided by her wicked brother. Now if you have a haunting, you need a medium to help you connect or tell you you are being hoodwinked! Enter a real live medium from El Paso who has to prove she is "the real deal".

As always, there is love, laughter, and mystery with my favorite hair dressers/PI! If you've never read or listened to one of the Dixi Cash books, you really don't know what you've been m
Okay, I'm beginning to wonder if I'm just becoming too cynical. Maybe I just need to stop reading quite so much. (Gasp! Did I just say that?!)

Normally I really, really like Dixie Cash. I was so excited when I saw this title in the store. I bought it as soon as I saw it. I didn't make myself wait, I didn't try to justify the purchase, I just said I want it, and I got it.

I found the other Domestic Equalizers novels to be funny. I know at least 2 of them found me laughing through a good portion of

As the cover says this is a very easy read and the dialogues are good... it flows right. I'm not a huge fan of the genere but I wanted to try... the unfortunate thing about this book is that we(the readers) find out everything right away. The book is not boring but there are so many unnecessary parts that if they weren't there the book would be around 100 pages long if not less!

I appreciate the fact that this is book number 6 in the series, but it can be easily read as a standalone, because we g

I was curious about what this book is all about so I grab the only copy in the library and started reading. Unfortunately, I wasn't hooked at all. I know its a mystery series, don't get me wrong but I love a good mystery with witty characters especially female ones but this just didn't click with my inner Sherlock Holmes. The manner of writing might be the problem cause it deals with a lot of characters. Switching from one POV to another was confusing as hell!!! Jeez Louise!!! So I had to skip t ...more
Easy to read and recommend for those who want a light romance with a dash of suspense thrown in. Justin feels his late wife (died in car crash) is haunting his home. . . and asks the Domestic Equalizers (Debbie Sue and Edwina are hairdressers and p/t private investigators)to help him get closure. The DE team bring in Sophia Paredes--an El Paso psychic--and things tumble on after that. Lots of humor, good old girl stuff--PG-13. Blurbed by Nancy Martin (Blackbird sisters). There are at least 4 tit ...more

First of all, I have no idea how this book made it into my "to read" list.
Second, the title of this book has nothing to do with the book's content.
Cartoonish characters, but they were kind of charming nonetheless.
This is one of those books I read and it's kind of like eating Doritos or Oreos. Not particularly satisfying, not enriching, but one in a while, some junk food (reading) is okay.

The Domestic Equalizers, Debbie Sue Overstreet and Edwina Perkins-Martin, have a new case. A man has been having things rearranged in his house over several months, supposedly done by his dead wife. He hires them to investigate; in case it is not a living being doing these things, they hire a mentalist to try to speak to his dead wife. Things get stranger as they investigate. These investigators and other characters in the book are quirky and funny at the same time. A fun read!

Keystone Cops meet West Texas! I love it! While the story is predictable, the dialogue unbelievable, and the characters over the top I wait very impatiently for each new book to be published. And I enjoyed this book the most so far out of all of them. The story was sweet, I mean really who doesn't want to come back and "haunt" their husband! The titles are what caught my eye but the stories keep me coming back. Ready for another one!

This time Debbie Sue and Edwina are asked to help a widower that is being haunted by his dead wife. They call in a mentalist to help them out, and get her granddaughter. Of course the widower and mentalist fall in love and the person haunting the widower gets his just deserts. Very good story, I laughed out loud many times while listening to this one.

Edwina and Debbie Sue always crack me up. It was no different this time. What with ghosts and a psychic, you knew there'd be crazy times involved.
And love is in the air again, this time for Justin and Sophia.

This book was laugh out loud funny and Edwina and Debbie Sue just hilarious characters. The Texas backdrop and southern charm and lifestyle made the book such a fun read. I will definitely be reading some of their other books.

This is such a fun series. Nothing serious or heavy here, just lighthearted fun. Part mystery and part romance, Dixie Cash always leaves me wanting more. I hated to finish this one only because it's like visiting old friends with each book that comes out. Can't wait for the next one!

Another fun story from Debbie Sue and Edwina, the Domestic Equalizers. However, the ending was quite abrupt, really left the reader wondering even though there was an epilogue with a brief paragraph on each character. Still, a fun read!
Fluffy, humorous TX hairdressers cum P.I.s take on the Big Bad Criminal World...or in this series installment, ghosts.

A good book for a hot day with a cold beer, just don't make it anything it isn't.

Has to be one of my favorite books! It was funny, romantic and had mystery! I only read books I think I'm really gonna like. If they don't appeal I don't read them and I'm glad I decided to read this one!

I gave it five stars because I loved the storyline and I loved the characters...but I have no idea where it got it's makes no sense to me...

Not what I was expecting--and in a good way. I hope that there are more books w/these protagonists in them. A pleasant, quick read.

Lightweight, but a good summer book.

I promised my book club I would read something other than science fiction and this is what we picked. Schlock.

Not what I thought it would be. It promised to be "Hilarious." I found it mildly funny, the title being the best part. And it's not really a romance, more of a ghost story.
Definitely not my favorite of the series.

Pam has always had a zany sense of humor, and Jeffery has always had a dry wit.
