Debbie Sue Overstreet and Edwina Perkins-Martin are outraged. The friends, who can not get enough of anything to do with the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis, cannot believe that someone would have the nerve to steal the King’s blue suede shoes right from under everyone’s noses where they were displayed at Hogg’s Drive-In, a burger joint Elvis would often frequent on his way to fame and glory.


While sleuthing their way through the mystery, they find time to do some match making between two rival reporters visiting Salt Lick for the story of the shoes with some unexpected results.


The women decide to replace the missing shoes with an old pair of slippers, hoping no one will notice and start asking questions. They are doing their own detecting, they think the local sheriff would not be able to find his way out of a bag. When things begin to “happen”, they are hopeful they will uncover the true identity of the shoe thief.


While there is laughter, mayhem, and mystery in this book, I did struggle to keep my focus on reading, perhaps as I have not read previous books by the author, I felt a little lost without the background of the two leading ladies. It is still a worthwhile read for fans of Dixie Cash.
