Our Red Hot Romance Is Leaving Me Blue

Dixie Cash, Author . Avon A $13.99 (334p) ISBN 978-0-06-143439-6

When hunky firefighter Justin Sadler's late wife, Rachel, appears to be trying to communicate from beyond the grave with refrigerator magnets in the pseudonymous Cash's (Curing the Blues with a New Pair of Shoes ) wacky sixth novel, Justin asks the Domestic Equalizers, Debbie Sue Overstreet and Edwina Perkins-Martin, of Salt Lick, Tex., to determine whether his house is really haunted. Debbie Sue and Ed, who also own the Styling Station beauty salon, accept the challenge, while a young teacher moonlighting as a “mentalist,” Sophia Paredes, who's the granddaughter of a recently deceased El Paso psychic, also agrees to help Justin. Adding some skullduggery to the ghostly goings-on is Justin's greedy brother-in-law, who covets the mineral rights of Justin's ranch. Cash (Texas sisters Pamela Cumbie and Jeffery McClanahan) neatly mixes woo-woo weirdness and romance with the gosh-darn Texas humor fans expect from this light crime series. (June)
