The strongest, sexiest, and sassiest debut contemporary romance we've seen since Rachel Gibson! The quality of Dixie's writing combined with the pure romance of the story guarantees that Avon Romance has just acquired a new star.
Debbie Sue Overstreet is still the best-looking gal in Saltlick, TX-and her ex-husband Buddy is still the best-looking sheriff. Thanks to a thriving gossip mill (also known as Debbie's hair salon), there isn't a thing in Saltlick that she doesn't know about before anyone else. That is, until somebody offs snooty Pearl Ann Carruthers. With Buddy on the case, the woman who has to know everything is stumped by not just one, but two questions: first, who killed Pearl Ann and why, and second, how on earth did she ever let Buddy Overstreet get away? Lucky for Saltlick and Buddy both, she means to find out the answers, no matter what it takes!
Authentic dialogue and a strong Texas flavor nicely complement the slapstick tone of Cash's rollicking debut romance featuring Debbie Sue Overstreet. Debbie Sue owns the most unusual hair saloon in Salt Lick, Tex., the Styling Station, which she converted from the old filling station her ex-husband left her in her divorce settlement. Pert and sassy Debbie Sue has no desire to make a permanent career out of giving permanents, however; she still hankers for her old life as a rodeo rider even though her obsession with the lifestyle led to the end of her marriage with Buddy Overstreet. When Pearl Ann Carruthers, the nastiest and wealthiest woman in town turns up dead, Debbie Sue sees the $50,000 reward for tracking down her murderer as her ticket back to life in the saddle. There's only one slight problem: Buddy is the town sheriff, and he wants her to keep her nose out of police business. To complicate matters, rich and handsome Quint Matthews, an old fling from her rodeo days, appears on the scene and offers Debbie Sue money beyond her wildest dreams to tour the rodeo circuit with him. It just might be the answer to her prayers, but she can't get Pearl Ann's murder out of her mind or Buddy out her heart. Debbie Sue and her posse are sure to keep readers laughing all the way to the last page.

Since You're Leaving Anyway, Take Out The Trash
Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I knew right away that it was written by someone from Texas, specifically west Texas. Laughed out loud in places. Nice development of the main characters. Rather light reading but so much fun.
Must read series
I have to say the Domestic Equalizer series is my all time favorite series. I have read all books and absolutely love the stories, they are witty, laugh out loud funny and I just can't get enought.
If you have not read you are missing out! Highly recommend!
