    The Domestic Equalizers are on the job and this time they are looking for stolen Blue Suede Shoes. (Yes, those shoes.) It’s an Elvis Presley fun fest with parades, sock hops and impersonators. Add to that the romantic stories of a reporter that looks like Faith Hill and a handsome sports reporter, and an older romance between The King of Rock and Roll and a certain Salt Lick resident. A little “Love Me Tender.” This was a fun book to read that paid homage to a great singer.

    "Dixie Cash" is actually the writing team of sisters Pam Cumbie and Jeffery McClanahan (yes, you read that right, her name is Jeffery!). They started out a few years back and I've enjoyed all their books, so when I saw they had this one out, I knew I had to pick it up. Before you start any of their Domestic Equalizer series, be warned - these are NOT high-brow literature. If you enjoy a cute, quick, slightly romantic read, however, they'll be right up your alley.

Before you start any of their Domestic Equalizer series, be warned - these are NOT high-brow literature. If you enjoy a cute, quick, slightly romantic read, however, they'll be right up your alley. The "case" this time is a bit on the thin side, though, barely taking up any time. Debbie Sue and Edwina are rather more involved in setting up two reporters who have hit town for the Elvis festivities. Young Avery Deaton is looking to move into more serious reporting, and she's hoping this Elvis gig will be her ticket to the big leagues. Sam Carter, a rookie sports reporter (but a seasoned veteran from another market in another state), has also been assigned to Salt Lick; he's hoping to get a killer story out of Caleb Crawford's family (Caleb being a football wunderkind). As soon as the Domestic Duo meet both of these journalists, they just know they have to hook them up. The book is cute as usual, and the sisters certainly have a flair for capturing all thing Texan. The romance moves along nicely, although it is pretty cliche. Perhaps my biggest complaint about this entry is the lack of the significant others: Buddy Overstreet, Debbie Sue's hubby, isn't seen at all, only making the occasional phone appearance (he's on a case for the Texas Rangers). And Edwina's hubby isn't seen much either. Their absence is a real loss because while the crazy investigators are fun together doing their thing, they really shine in the presence of their men. Hopefully D.C. will "fix" this oversight in their next book. Good fun fairly clean reading, nothing too taxing - a definite hammock or beach-side book!

    I thought this book was slower to pick up than the other 3 books I have read in the series, but still entertaining and I loved the ending. Salt Lick, Texas is celebrating Elvis Presley's birthday and his famous blue suede shoes are on display at Hogg's Drive in (only $5 to see). At least they would be until someone steals them. Loopy sheriff Billie Don and Deputy Harry spend 2 full days taking down the licence plate numbers of all the cars in town for the festivities - only the numbers.

They don't realize that those numbers won't be much help without also taking down the state and make of car. People have come in from all over the country to participate in the Elvis look-alike contest (prize of $1.000), see the Elvis Fliers, attend the sock hop, watch the parade, etc. Obviously Sheriff Billy Don is not up to the job of catching the thief, and the Domestic Equalizers are called in to do the job. Edwina and Debbie Sue match make to get together two reporters from the Dallas area.

    I actually picked up this book because I thought the title of another of authors' books had a fun title, I Can't Make You Love Me but I Can Make You Leave. This one preceded it in the series so I thought why not. The series follows two women who own a detective agency in a small town in Texas. They've been at it for a while, this is book #5, and one of them sweeps up footprints tracked through spilled flour at the scene of the crime.

    As a major Elvis fan, I have to say that I loved this book!! It’s the week of Elvis’s birthday and the small town of Salt Lick, Texas is having an Elvis birthday celebration featuring a pair of his famed blue suede shoes. Problem is, they disappear before the festivities start. Without giving too much away, it’s a hilarious story that had me laughing out loud the entire time and wishing I was there.

I do love the colorful language, the cocktails, the matchmaking, the mystery and definitely the characters. The combination of the Dixie Cash writing team and the delightful Peggity Price giving voice to Debbie Sue and Edwina is winning one fer shure. I know the formula by now, there is a new girl character, a new boy character, new boy and new girl tussle and eventually get together with the help of Debbie Sue and Edwina. There is a mystery to solve, sometimes things get a little out of hand, but it all works out. A Texas cozy mystery of the finest kind. Elvis Presley visited Salt Lick back in the day when he was 19, he was given a pair of blue suede shoes. This famous pair of shoes eventually makes its way back to Salt Lick in time for the annual birthday celebration held each 9 January. Said famous shoes go missing from the diner where the celebration will be held and Debbie Sue and Edwina are on the case. Especially since the sheriff is a clueless goober. He's ineptitude is funny to listen to and listening to Debbie Sue control her temper and steer him in the right direction is priceless. Four thank you, thank you very much beans.....

The fifth in the Domestic Equalizers/Style Station books with Debbie Sue Overstreet and Edwina Perkins-Martin off on another case and also matching up new friends. Saltlick Texas is having an Elvis festival to which all kinds of Elvis impersonators are expected to come. And some anonymous person, supposedly from a museum, offers to lend them for this festival Elvis Presley’s blue suede shoes. But the day the festival opens, the blue suede shoes disappear. Debbie Sue and Edwina get the idea to put an old pair of Edwina’s husband’s slippers in there while they quietly look for the real shoes. People go through the exhibit paying $5.00 apiece to see the shoes and don’t realize they aren’t the real thing. In addition to all of this, two journalists from opposing papers, both young, one a man and one a woman, both beautiful, of course, come to town to cover the festivities. Debbie Sue and Edwina are up to their usual tricks-looking for the shoes, and matchmaking. This is, as are the others, a very funny book. However, this one in some ways was a little too sweet. No murders, and too many alleged Elvis sightings. It went just over the edge to too cozy for me, but I’ll keep reading these books anyway because they’re hilarious. And Peggity Price does all the Texas accents so well.

    This was an enjoyable book....the last couple of chapters and the epilogue were my favorite part! I love the idea about Elvis Presley that was worked in! As with each book prior...it moved slow for me. But they were good books, I laughed aloud and enjoyed them. I think I like Edwina and her outspoken attitude the most!

The mystery while different and lasting the entire book didn't seem to be the big part of this story...the romance seemed to over-ride it. I actually at many points forgot that there was even a mystery in this book. It seemed to come up again towards the end and there was a rush to solve it all of a sudden. The answer was kind of a surprise but not entirely, it crossed my mind a time or two that the thief could be the person that it actually turned out to be. So there was some surprise in how it was solved but not a shock like it was in book four when the villian turned out to be a law enforcement man. I did enjoy Sam and Avery, the romantic couple in this book. I especially enjoyed how the story of their relationship was continued in the epilogue so we were able to see where things went with them.

Debbie Sue and Edwina must play matchmaker with the two reporters that have come to town to cover the celebration-Faith Hill look-a-like Avery and handsome Sam-so that the two won’t find out about the missing shoes. Curing the Blues with a New Pair of Shoes does not bring the laughs advertised in the author biography or book jacket. The events of the book felt contrived and the inciting incident (the missing shoes) is not enough to hold the reader’s attention, even though the mystery of the shoes eventually comes to a satisfying conclusion. The love story between Avery and Sam feels cliché and forced. The strength of Curing the Blues with a New Pair of Shoes is its larger-than-life portrayal of the colorful culture and characters in a tiny Texas town.

Debbie Sue and Edwina work with the inept sheriff and deputy to locate them, while lots of out of town visitors pour in to see the parade and festivities. There is also a love story between two reports from the Fort Worth area, Avery and Sam. This book made me laugh and was a fun read. It reminded me a bit of Stephanie Plum from Janet Evanovich's series.

Even though this is book 5 in a series, it was easy to follow the action, and no real backstory was required to understand the main characters.

    Seriously- any book by this title just has to be read. I hope its good! ....... realized after starting it that it was part of a series. I had already read book 1 and although it was ok, I remembered I didn't like all the language. The few chapters didn't thrill me, and the language bugged me, so I decided to stop reading. Too bad- it was a cute title. Seriously- any book by this title just has to be read. I hope its good! ....... realized after starting it that it was part of a series.

    I've read the previous Dixie Cash books and liked them more than this one. I liked it well enough to finish reading, but was disappointed overall with the quality and the profanity of one of the main characters. In the previous books this character used profanity occasionally, but in this book, the least little problem brought out the f-bomb. Why the change?

    Pretty weak book in this series that isn't particularly strong to begin with. Throw in some gratuitous gay stereotype jokes, jingoism, and worship of small towns (I've lived in a lot of places and you have good and bad in both, small town people tend to think they are nicer, more generous, etc.) Add in a silly and not very interesting mystery...

    This was not as enjoyable as the previous books. I had a hard time getting thru this one, where I quickly read thru the others. Not really much of a mystery nor was there any real effort on the part of the main characters to solve it. This book just meandered slowly with little humor and the ladies just fell into the resolution instead of solving it. Disappointing.

    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. Not really a mystery at all but romance. Ed and Debbie Joe are funny gals. They're also great matchmakers.
