"Get your biscuits in the oven and your buns in the bed, 'cuz Dixie Cash is the best good-night reading around!"

--Nancy Martin, author of the Blackbird Sisters series

The Domestic Equalizers are back! Author Dixie Cash's delightful small town Texas hairdressers-turned-sleuths take on a new case in I Can't Make You Love Me, But I Can Make You Leave. A former Queen of Country Music, a long way from Nashville, faces a murder rap when her back-up singer and hated rival is found dead in the fading star's dressing room--and the Equalizers ("Don't get mad, get evidence") must prove her innocence. At once wacky and heartfelt, Cash's latest is a country hoot! (Publishers Weekly calls it, "one of her most entertaining cases yet.") Fans of Mary Kay Andrews and Karin Gillespie who have yet to experience the zany delights of Dixie Cash should definitely start now!

Booklist Review: "When fading country-and-western singer Darla Denman gets stranded in Salt Lick, Texas, on her way to a comeback gig at a charity telethon, Domestic Equalizers Debbie Sue and Edwina are soon up to their pierced earlobes in the minidramas engulfing Darla's squabbling entourage. For starters, there's the outsize outrage of baby-diva Roxie Jo Jenkins, no doubt caused by her marriage to Darla's ex-husband and current manager, Bob. Add to that the mystery surrounding Roxie's personal makeup artist, Valetta Rose, and the typical musicians-with-a-past backgrounds of her band members, and Darla's tour has the makings of an accident waiting to happen. But Roxie's death just minutes before the telethon begins is no accident, and when first Darla and then Bob confesses to the murder, the Domestic Equalizers know they're the only ones who can discover who really deserves to be singing the jailhouse blues. Cash's relentlessly feisty heroines attract trouble faster than a skunk in a perfume factory but, delightfully, manage to come out smelling like a rose.--Haggas, Carol Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In chapter one of the pseudonymous Cash's sidesplitting seventh Domestic Equalizers mystery (after 2010's Our Red Hot Romance Is Leaving Me Blue), the tour bus carrying flame-haired Darla Denman, the former "Queen of Country Music," and her entourage-including her ex-husband and still faithful manager, Big Bob Denman, and Roxie Jo, Big Bob's ambitious, much younger wife and Darla's opening act-breaks down outside Salt Lick, Tex. After hiring a couple of unlikely backup singers-beauticians, and down-home investigators Debbie Sue Overstreet and Edwina Perkins-Martin-Darla and company finally reach Midland for a benefit concert. When Roxie Jo is stabbed to death with a nail file in her dressing room, Darla confesses to the crime. Sure that Darla is innocent, Debbie Sue and Edwina set out to clear their favorite singer's name. Cash (sisters Pam Cumbie and Jeffery McClanahan) delivers one of her most entertaining cases yet.
