Stranded in a small western town, city girl Josephine Whittaker doesn't have a cent to her name. Desperate to make some money, she applies for a job as a cook on a cattle drive. J.D. McCall knows a female cook on a cattle drive is asking for trouble, but he doesn't have a choice. His latest cook has just been carted off to jail and they are moving out in two days. When Josephine tells him that fried steak is her specialty, he doesn't know that he has no experience cooking over a camp fire...well, no experience at cooking anything. Josephine knows how to plan a menu, but not how to actually prepare the food.

This is a well written historical romance. Josephine's former husband married her for her money, then divorced her. She is determined to strike out on her own and not depend on a man. J.D. doesn't believe a woman from the city will be able to handle the hard work on the Wyoming territory. His mother abandoned him and his father to return to the city where she grew up. There are many unique characters in his book, especially J.D.'s father, Boots, and some of the cowboys who work at the ranch. Even though the book is slow in places, working through the strained relationships in this book kept me interested. My rating: 4 Stars.
