That hair-snippin’, tongue-waggin’ duo otherwise known as the Domestic Equalizers (My Heart May Be Broken, But My Hair Still Looks Great, 2005) are back for another round of Texas intrigue.
Rodeo king Quint Matthews has come to Salt Lick, Texas, for both business and pleasure. Finding himself in a bit of trouble, he’s asking his ex-girlfriend, Debbie Sue Overstreet, and her partner, Edwina Perkins-Martin, for help. One of the ladies Quint’s been romancing online has taken him for all he’s got and disappeared. Nothing daunted, the rascally cad is also in town to take a sweet local businesswoman out on a blind date. What’s a hairdresser-turned-investigator to do? Debbie Sue wants to help her old flame, but she feels she should warn his new date, Allison, of his foibles. Plus, her hubby’s not keen on her working with the lady killer. After one date, Allison is grappling with her own question: Into whose arms should a gal fall when she likes her date’s cowboy buddy better than Quint? Meanwhile, Quint himself, though he likes a good chase, is still pining for the woman who stole his identity. The stakes rise when Quint becomes a murder suspect and the Equalizers must don their best big-hair thinking caps to find a way out of this cowpoke mess.
Tangy and a little bit dirty—a mystery cooked up in the heart of BBQ country.
