If you follow the author's blog then i am sure you know most of the begining of this story. Ree Drummond is a woman who's grown up with the good things in life. Her father is a prominent orthopedic surgeon, she grew up with ballet and the arts, lived on the edge of a golf course and knew nothing about the 'country life'. Then she unexpectedly met a hunky cowboy in a bar one night while having drinks with her hometown friends on a return trip to her childhood home for a short vacation before moving to Chicago to begin her career after college.That one night changed the whole course of her life.
Her whirlwind romance reads like a harlequin novel, with her sense of humor injected. I enjoyed reading how it all unfolded. It's amazing to see where it's all gotten her now, her hugely followed blog, t.v. appearances, a cookbook and now this book. I've heard rumors there might even be a movie in the works?
This book was great!! I didn't want it to end. I only recently started following "Pioneer Woman", and I highly recommend her to everyone. The story has everything- laughs, tears, and plenty of romance. I will definitely be keeping this book in my collection!
Absolutely loved it, have since bought six copies for friends and family, I cherish the warmth, love, tears, and of course getting to know Ree and hunky hubby better. Hated for it to end, hope she will write a sequal and many more. Love watching her cook, and seeing the kids grow. Such an amazing family and perfect parents. Pa Pa is such a sweetie, raw steaks and chocolate....his favs. I look forward to more cookbooks also, have all so far. Hugs Pat
