Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Cash, pen name of sisters Pamela Cumbie and Jeffery McClanahan, delivers her third Domestic Equalizers novel (after My Heart May Be Broken but My Hair Still Looks Great), a read-in-the-bathtub West Texas caper featuring rodeo riders and identity thieves. Trouble comes to Salt Lick in the form of Quint Matthews, a former rodeo champ who asks beauty shop owners and "Domestic Equalizers" Debbie Sue Overstreet and Edwina Perkins-Martin to track down the identity thief who's been charging up his Visa. Quint, who happens to be Overstreet's ex-boyfriend, also has a second reason for coming to Salt Lick: to meet Allison Barker, a single mom whose 12-year-old daughter has assumed her mother's identity and "met" Quint for her through a dating Web site. As the Equalizers set up an online ruse to nab the identity thief, Quint's old pal Tag Freeman successfully woos Allison; a mysterious character stalks Quint; and Quint ends up the prime suspect in a possible murder. It all works out in the end, but not in a way readers would expect. The plot has its share of unlikely coincidences, but the order of the day is entertainment, and the book piles it on. (Nov.)

From Booklist

Salt Lick, Texas' ace detectives Debbie Sue and Edwina are at it again, defying their husbands' wishes by leaving their beauty parlor behind and hotfooting it out the door in pursuit of the latest criminal--or cheating husband, which, in their minds, is the same thing--in the guise of their alter egos, the Domestic Equalizers. But this time the cheating takes the form of credit-card theft, and the victim is none other than Debbie Sue's ex-main squeeze, rodeo heartthrob Quint Matthews, who hires them to track down his former girlfriend to make her stop using his Visa card. Quint's had more than his share of love trouble lately. After being publicly humiliated when the woman he had been dating turned out to be a man, Quint tries an Internet dating service, and is matched with Salt Lick's own Allison Barker, who would rather date his best friend. Sassy and sexy Cash's big-haired heroines dish up Texas-size fun. Carol Haggas

Format: Hardcover
I love the series but this, the third book in the series, fell a bit short. I liked it but not nearly as much as the other two. I think it's because of the focus of the book not being the core characters Debbie Sue Overstreet and Edwina.

This book deals with Quint Matthews; Debbie Sue's ex, who lands himself in trouble with Internet dating and an overly large ego. After meeting Monica online Quint finds his identity has been stolen. Monica disappears as the credit card bills mount. So Quint turns to the Domestic Equalizers, Debbie Sue and Edwina's detective agency, for help. Driven largely by his overly inflated ego it's easy to see how Quint winds up in a big mess. Since he's going to be in and around Salt Lick anyway Quint sets up a date with Allison Barker, whom he also "met" on the internet.

Allison is surprised to find that her daughter has posted her profile on an online dating service. Jill has not only been talking with men online posing as her mother Allison, but has set up a date with Quint. When Quint shows up on her doorstep Allison actually goes on the date and meets Tag, Quint's friend, whom she finds more interesting then the drunken self centered cowboy. Big surprise there.

While Quint is a good secondary character he's less then likeable as the front man. I couldn't understand why any decent person would continue to agree to go out with Quint since he can't seem to finish a date between getting drunk or having a allergic reaction that has him hooking up with the EMT.

The identity theft mystery is not really a mystery at all and the murder isn't really a murder. We do see gender confused Eugene/Janine again who we met in the second book in the series. He/she has a history with Quint that is less then interesting.

This was the first of this series that I've read and I don't know that I would try another one. Entertaining, but neither of the main characters - Quint and Allison - ever quite came alive for me. The best scene was the sex toy party and its aftermath; everything else, including the mystery, fell rather flat.
Biggest plus for me was all the details about rodeos as I am a big rodeo fan and I rarely ready mysteries that have former rodeo cowboys and clowns as main characters.

As the Domestic Equalizers, Debbie Sue and Edwina like to blunder
through the mysteries life throws at them. Their newest case is going
to be interesting as Debbie Sue's ex, Quint, shows up asking them to
find the thief of his identity. The murder was just an extra squirt of
fate in their lives.

And of course what would life be without one of the Domestic
Equalizers' friends being set up on a blind date? Strangely, Quint is
the man their friend gets set up with, courtesy of the friend's
daughter. Hopefully, it all ends up with a happy ending, or will it?

I gave you my heart but you sold it online is a humorous look at the
trouble that can follow friends around. The friends we see on a daily
basis and the friends we only see when they (or we) are in need. I
gave you my heart but you sold it online is a dash of humor, a dash of
small-town life (with some public indecency thrown in for pleasure),
as well as a dash of reality. It is a fun novel that looks at the
seriousness of new crimes that are popping up in today's society, like
identity theft. The characters are human, but flawed. A joy to get to
know. And it feels like you are leaving the family you like to visit
when the book is over. A very enjoyable read.

Format: Hardcover
In Salt Lick, Texas former rodeo superstar Quint Matthews asks his ex girlfriend Debbie Sue Overstreet and her "Domestic Equalizers" partner Edwina Perkins-Martin to uncover the hideaway of the thief using his credit card. He informs the ladies that he was dating Veronica, but she vanished leaving his credit in shambles. Finally he insists they low key everything as he is in hiding after a highly publicized fiasco involving a Vegas transvestite. The beauty parlor owners agree to investigate the theft.

Quint fails to inform the two sleuths that he also is in town to meet in person for the first time his new on line girlfriend Allison Barker, a single mother raising a twelve years old daughter. What Quint does not know is that it is not the mom agreeing to a date, but the daughter masquerading as her mother. As the Equalizers work the case, Quint and Allison go out on a date, but she likes his friend Tag Freeman much more. Besides which, Quint has new problems with a stalker and a murder with him as the only suspect.

The third madcap Domestic Equalizers mystery (see MY HEART MAY BE BROKEN BUT MY HAIR STILL LOOKS GREAT and SINCE YOU'RE LEAVING ANYWAY, TAKE OUT THE TRASH) is a zany way out West teas tale filled with an eccentric cast (including the lead females). The wild enjoyable story line is character driven. Quint is quite a character as he jumps from the frying pan into the fire time after time. Edwina and Debbie Sue are as always stirring up trouble in between fixing hair as they try to locate Veronica until Quint gets in even deeper and they have to prove his innocence based on his being stupid not a killer. Dixie cash provides an amusing insane by fun thriller.
