"That's when I saw him—the cowboy—across the smoky room." I'll never forget that night. It was like a romance novel, an old Broadway musical, and a John Wayne western rolled into one. Out for a quick drink with friends, I wasn't looking to meet anyone, let alone a tall, rugged cowboy who lived on a cattle ranch miles away from my cultured, corporate hometown. But before I knew it, I'd been struck with a lightning bolt . . . and I was completely powerless to stop it. Read along as I recount the rip-roaring details of my unlikely romance with a chaps-wearing cowboy, from the early days of our courtship (complete with cows, horses, prairie fire, and passion) all the way through the first year of our marriage, which would be filled with more challenge and strife—and manure—than I ever could have expected. This isn't just my love story; it's a universal tale of passion, romance, and all-encompassing love that sweeps us off our feet. It's the story of a cowboy. And Wranglers. And chaps. And the girl who fell in love with them.

UGH. I had been familiar with Drummond's work after reading parts of her blog years ago and occasionally reading it now and again. I knew some the story of her Marlboro Man, but thought it'd be worth buying the book instead of trying to sort it through the places on her blog. What an awful load of t...
A delicious happy ever after story that also happens to be true. What more could anyone wish for?
This is just bad. It's listed as non-fiction despite the fact that the author seems to recall in great detail every emotion, thought, tear, AND article of clothing worn during the courtship with her husband. Poor little rich girl meets cowboy worth millions and proceeds to have a fantasy fairytale...
Requested this as a review copy, ages ago, because I was familiar with Ree Drummond's story from her blog. I like her recipes, and her photographs of a prairie life. Looks kind of alien to this city girl. So I was curious.But reading about her going gaga with love at first sight and melting for the ...
