This book was laugh-out-loud hysterical! It is one part mystery and one part romance with the romance taking center stage. The wife of the richest man in the small town of Salt Lick, Texas (and the surrounding area) turns up dead, and there are no lack of potential suspects. A hefty reward is offered for information leading to the capture of the murderer, and Debbie Sue, the sheriff's ex-wife, is just the lady to solve the murder and claim the money. Buddy, the sheriff, wants Debbie Sue as far away from the murder investigation as possible...and both the sheriff and his ex wife both secretly still want to be close to one another while trying valiantly to move on with their lives. There are two questions in this book: Who killed Pearl Ann Carruthers, and what are the chances that Sheriff Buddy and Debbie Sue will fail at divorce even more spectacularly than they failed at marriage!
There are plenty of laughs, a good amount of intrigue and some fantastic supporting characters with distinct personalities. A light read, but not entirely fluff. I recommend this book!
I knew I had something good in my hands when I laughed out loud on page 8. The small town setting is so well depicted, I could practically feel the Texas dust. I wasn't sure I would enjoy the reunion of two lovers as that theme can sometimes drag and irritate, but the author handled it perfectly. You felt like everyone in the book was an old friend, even if you just loved to hate them!
OMG! This was such a great book, I could hardly put it down and the only time I did was when I absolutely had to. I finished it in record time because it was such an easy read! This is my first book by author Dixie Cash and I will read all her books she's such a good writer.
Excellent read for any Texas woman and those who wish they were, a funny tale of a divorcee still in love with her cowboy ex, and the daily trials of living in a small west Texas town.....I can relate to this!! Laughed out loud a number of times, this girl is a true typical Texas Woman!!
