More About the Author
I have enjoyed writing a series of children's picture books based on my very lethargic and malodorous Basset Hound named Charlie. "Charlie the Ranch Dog" has been a sweet experience for me.
My Food Network show, "The Pioneer Woman," premiered in 2011 and it's still being filmed on the Oklahoma ranch I share with my husband and four children.

Both Ree and "Marlboro Man" as she refers to her cowboy are likeable personalities. I liked the embarrassing stories that she shares of their early relationship, and I understood many of the stresses and heartache in their first year of marriage. I think her writing style is comfortable and relateable, and a nice way to spend a couple of evenings. You can read it fast, and it won't change your life, but you'll enjoy it.
Yes, Malboro Man is described pretty much perfect in every way, but I don't mind that at all. It's Ree's story, it is her husband - she is telling us what she sees, so whether that's realistic or not to others, it doesn't matter. If they can still see each other in this way after all these years, more power to them! I think it's great!
I was however a little disappointed too. I may have misunderstood what this book would entail, but I thought that a large part of the book would be "new" stuff, when in fact 68% (according to Kindle) is everything that was already posted on Ree's blog, then there are 8% of re-posted recipes etc. So in fact, all that is really new is the honeymoon and first year of marriage which only takes up the remaining 24% of the book.
The ending seemed a little abrupt to me too and the book left me wanting more, but not entirely in the good, "looking forward to the sequel" kind of way.
All in all I loved it, I had just hoped for a bit more for those of us that already followed her blog for some time!
I know it sounds petty, but it also seems like she's trying to re-write her own history a little as well. Wasn't there a mutual friend involved in their first meeting? And four years studying in LA does not make you a city girl, but I guess the "town mouse and country mouse" angle is more appealing.
It's not a bad book, but it's a very basic romance novel and I'd suggest to readers not to expect much more.
