Krystle's Thoughts - You Can Have My Heart, but Don't Touch My Dog (Domestic Equalizers #8) by Dixie Cash - 5 Book Rating!


You Can Have My Heart, but Don't Touch My Dog (The Domestic Equalizers Book 8)
After two divorces, Sandi Walker, entrepreneur extraordinaire, is on her own and loving it. As a devout animal lover, she has made a success of the only gourmet pet food bakery in Midland, Texas. She’s also a pet foster parent and has fifteen assorted abused and unwanted animals at home. When a golden-colored stray dog with an abundance of personality appears at her door, she can’t refuse him and she can’t keep from falling in love with him. She names him Waffle and gives him a permanent home.
General Manager of the Flying C Ranch, Nick Conway, has searched for months for his lost dog, Buster. Giving up on ever finding him, he looks for a new dog and finds a puppy at a pet grooming shop. While he went to the shop to see a puppy, he also encountered a beautiful redheaded woman he can’t put out of his mind. Little does he know that she found Buster in an alley and has now claimed him as her own. Sparks fly between Sandi and Nick when he steals Buster and sues her in court for custody. It will take a mouthy parrot, a sitting judge, the matchmaking skills of the Domestic Equalizers and Cupid himself to resolve this conflict.

5 Book Rating!
This was a very fun book to read, very lighthearted and well-rounded!

The characters were all very witty, with great personalities. The story-line was cute as well, man loses his dog, woman finds his dog and decides to keep him, until said man comes in to town and spots his long lost best friend. Well, now Sandi's simple life takes a detour straight to complicated-ville. But it just goes to show, anyone who loves their pets will ABSOLUTELY go the extra mile and do anything for their furbabies!

Sandi was an adorable character and easy to get along with while I read through the book, and Nick is an all-male, pure-bred cowboy, totally hunk-worthy.

The main characters aunt and her aunts friend were hilarious. I loved them, they reminded me of a few aunts of my own. This author writes their characters extremely relatable. I liked what these two characters brought to the book as a whole, and how they had a side job as being private investigators.

Out of the entire book though, I think my favorite character would have to be Jake..the parrot. LOL, I cracked up at everything that came out of that birds mouth, ha.

This is a book I'd recommend to my friends, thanks!

Dixie Cash is Pamela Cumbie and her sister Jeffery McClanahan. They grew up in West Texas during the great oil boom, an era filled with "real-life fictional" characters who cry to be written about. Pam has always had a zany sense of humor, and Jeffery has always had a dry wit. Surrounded by cowboys and steeped in country-western music, when they can stop laughing long enough, they work together creating hilarity on paper. Both live in Texas - Pam in the Fort Worth/Dallas Metroplex and Jeffery in a small town near Fort Worth.
