Don’t Make Me Choose Between You and My Shoes by Dixie Cash had some great memorable characters. My favorite character was Celina who is a librarian in a small Texas town. I liked reading about her bravery as she stepped out to try something new and found love along the way. The two main characters, Edwina and Debbie Sue, were a lot of fun to read. The dialogue that came from them was laugh out loud funny.

One of the most entertaining parts of the books was when Edwina decided to go win a karaoke contest. She decided in order to win, she first needed some liquid courage. In the meantime, Debbie Sue found the empty mini bottles of said courage and knew trouble was brewing. Sure enough, when Debbie Sue caught up with Edwina she found the bar crawling with cops and Edwina literally hanging on a wall. You’ll have to read the book for yourself to find out how that came about.

As I read the book, I wondered about the very beginning of the book that narrated a murder. ‘‘

“Whodunit” is what you are left wondering as more characters are defined. My initial opinion regarding Celina’s love interest was that he was the culprit of the heinous crime mentioned at the beginning of the book… I won’t say more about that, or what happened with this particular character.

The book had a great epilogue that tidied up how the characters went on from their New York adventure.

I haven’t read any other books by this author, but the next time I want to read something funny and light I will go see what else the library has by Dixie Cash.
