Things in Whynot, NC have gone to the dogs, and that’s just the way the town’s only veterinarian, Laken Mancinkus, likes it. No matter if she’s up when the rooster crows, or working until the cows come home, Laken never leaves an animal in need. So when a gorgeous Yankee comes begging for help herding some wily goats, Laken is up to the task.
Jake McDaniel is looking for a tax break, and what better way than to take up…farming? This ex-football player turned businessman turned unwitting goat farmer is up to his knees in goat drama. Runaway goats, dehydrated goats, and a baby goat that wants no one other than him, Jake needs more help than he cares to admit. Good thing the sexy veterinarian is right there to coach him on how to be a farmer. The only problem is, Laken’s not looking for anything more than a good time, while Jake is looking for his forever girl.
Will the baby goat, and Laken, be enough to get Jake to stay? Or will he take his tax break and hoof it back to Chicago? One thing is for certain…what happens on the farm doesn’t always stay on the farm.
Sawyer Bennett writing as Juliette Poe has become one of my absolute FAVORITE THINGS! The Sex and Sweet Tea Series just keeps getting better and better, and along with their magnificent covers, this town and the characters that reside in it are VERY MUCH NEEDED in my life right now. I don’t know if I’ve ever been charmed so quickly or so utterly addicted to a series and the world in which it lives. Whynot, North Carolina might be a fictional world, but it’s a world I would very much like to be embedded in.
BARKING UP THE WRONG TREE is book #3 in the series and it can be read as a standalone, BUT I urge you to start from the beginning and get to know this town and the charming, yet frustrating characters from the start. This AMAZING installment of the series is EASILY my favorite one to date. It features Laken Mancinkus, the town’s only vet and the absolutely gorgeous Jake McDaniel, who finds himself way in over his head from day one. Together, these two are literary magic! The heated chemistry is there. The hilarious banter is there. The stubbornness is DEFINITELY there.
I LOVE LOVE LOVED Laken and Jake! But I’ll tell you the truth and say that there were some scene-stealers in the mix. Again, we hear the voice of Pap, everyone’s favorite grandpa. And we get a surprising voice as well, which I’m not going to give it away because I want you to be as delighted as I was when I came upon it. So dive into the world of Whynot, NC – where everyone knows everything (or they think they do) and everyone helps each other out (or they try to), even if they are new to town. It’s a welcoming place with tons of shenanigans to go-round. I fell in love at first sight, and I believe YOU will too!
So mozie on in and get yourself a seat at the bar of Chesty’s, right next to Pap, and tell him your problems and he will help you figure it out from afar, and I promise you that you will get your happily ever after.
