Debbie Sue Overstreet and Edwina Perkins-Martin own the Styling Station in Salt Lick, Texas, but nowadays they are more interested in their sideline business, Domestic Equalizers. They have more fun tracking down cheating spouses and big trouble than doing "big hair". Their latest client is Quint Matthews, a rodeo superstar, who broke Debbie Sue's heart in the past. She has not held a grudge because Quint made it possible for her to meet her Texas Ranger husband, Buddy. Quint needs the ladies' services because he fears one of his recent love interests has stolen his identity.

In the meantime, Quint uses his free time to get to know local business owner, Allison Barker. Allison's daughter has done a little ID theft of her own in a less criminal way. She has posted Allison's slightly embellished bio at an online dating service and gotten her matched up with Quint. Allison hesitantly agrees to go out with Quint, but finds herself more attracted to his good friend, Tag. Tag is a former rodeo star, who had to quit due to injuries and currently runs a popular restaurant.

Quint is the bad boy of the story, but he is still charming in his own way. Tag is the hero every woman wants to come along. He is able to love a woman with a child and past issues. Tag has had to change his life after things did not go the way he planned, so he understands the pain of others. Allison is a heroine you will root for. She has to run her own business and raise a sweet, but willful daughter.

The authors have a keen ear for realistic, but zany dialog. The pacing is fast and the reader will be almost sad when the book is over so soon. I hope there will be more novels in this charming series.

The sister duo of Dixie Cash have another hit on their hands with this latest book. It is pure fun with plenty of laughs and suspense. If you haven't read the first two, you better get going, so you can catch up with all the Texas high jinks and romance.
