This is the latest adventure of the Domestic Equalizers. Debbie Sue Overstreet and Edwina Perkins-Martin are hairdressers by day and part-time private detectives in their free time. They have already dealt with Elvis shoe thieves, cheating spouses and even murder. Now they are ghost-hunting.
Justin Sadler’s wife died and he is trying to carry on with his life. But someone is trying to pay a practical joke on him, or is his departed wife trying to contact him from beyond? He hires the Equalizers and they in turn hire a psychic who is really the real deal. Edwina is scared witless, Justin is confused and baffled and Debbie Sue would rather be in the arms of her handsome husband. But, these gals are not ones to give up. Can they capture the one who is playing pranks on Justin and maybe do a little match-making to boot? Is Justin’s wife really trying to contact him from the dead?
You will find the answers to these questions and more in this hilariously, funny story. I just love these books and Debbie Sue and Edwina are such funny women, you would want to have them as your best friends and batting on your side. I almost screamed with laughter at Edwina’s reaction to the ghostly things that happened. And the banter between them and their husbands just had a permanent grin on my face. These stories are set in Texas and this one has a psychic from El Paso in it too. Dixie Cash gives her readers a truly exciting and entertaining story that will capture you on the first page and have you turning them frantically until you get to the end. There is also a teeny bit of spice as we see Debbie Sue interact with her handsome husband, and Edwina’s husband seems to be a hunk too. If you enjoy a rollicking good ride of a story then you must pick this and all the other books about the Domestic Equalizers. They are not to be missed!
