On Tuesday, I took the day off from work and attended a luncheon to hear the author Dixie Cash speak at the Woman’s Club of Fort Worth.

Now Dixie Cash is not one person, it is 2 sisters, Pam & Jeffrey, that write this series of humerous books set in West Texas. By no coincidence they grew up in West Texas and in a small town, so they know of what they write!

Pam is definitely the zany one of the two. Jeffrey is a bit more quiet and reserved but very nice and I can see how the two of them could write a really good book between Pam’s humor and Jeffrey’s writing experience (she had written several books before they started collaborating).

If you read the books, make sure to read them in order. The first is Since You’re Leaving Anyway, Take Out the Trash.

Life in the small town of Salt Lick, Texas, is pretty ordinary—until someone decides to knock off Pearl Ann Carruthers, the wealthiest and nas- tiest woman in town. Hairdresser and salon owner Debbie Sue Overstreet is shocked by the news, and she has a pipeline into the sheriff’s office to find out the latest. Her sexy ex-husband, Buddy, is also the town sheriff.

When Harley Carruthers offers a $50,000 reward for the killer, debt-ridden Debbie Sue can’t resist launching an investigation. But keeping Buddy from discovering her undercover machinations won’t be easy. Once you start digging for secrets, you never know what you will uncover!
