If I knew Ree Drummond in real life, we would be best friends. Or maybe I would be that girl that really wants to be her best friend, but she's just too cool and funny for me. Either way, I feel like I know her, even just from following her blog and now reading this sweet love story she's shared with us. If you're a follower as well, you definitely know what I'm talking about!
I found out about Ree and her love of Marlboro Man through her cookbook, The Pioneer Woman Cooks. Unfortunately, I haven't even tried any of her recipes, because I'm endlessly attempting to lose a few pounds and each of those deliciously appealing recipes contains a whole lot of butter/salt/fat/yummyness (and I make up my own words, if you didn't notice). After seeing the cookbook, I started following her blogs, though I missed out on the whole online story that eventually led to this book.
The book is written in the same down-to-earth, lovable way that her blog posts are, therefore making it incredibly readable. I loved feeling that I was witnessing this amazing love affair that really was Ree's life with this man and she really does write as if she's telling you the story over coffee, hilarious mishaps and all. You'll not only see her love story with the man that becomes her husband, but also her transformation from upscale business woman to ranch wife and momma.
If you're a sucker for a good romance, you'll want to pick this one up for sure, even if you have no clue who Ree Drummond is! Sweet and sappy and all that great romancy stuff, minus the sex (thank you Ree!).
