Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Popular blogger and cookbook author Drummond shares the story of her courtship and marriage to her husband, whom she refers to as Marlboro Man. Though Drummond grew up in Oklahoma, she never imagined she�d end up there for good. After four years of college in Los Angeles, Drummond was only making a pit stop home before moving to Chicago. A chance encounter with a devastatingly masculine cowboy in a local bar changes everything. Though several months elapse before Marlboro Man calls her, the spark between them ignites as soon as they start dating. A rancher with deep roots in the land he works, Marlboro Man isn�t going anywhere, which means Drummond has to decide whether, to be with him, she�s willing to give up her dream of moving to Chicago. By the time Marlboro Man proposes, the decision is made, and Drummond prepares to marry the love of her life and discover what being a rancher�s wife will entail. Charming and bright, Drummond�s story will be an inspiration to those who despair of finding old-fashioned, lasting love. --Kristine Huntley

Review

“The Pioneer Woman is perfect reading for Valentine’s Day, whether you’re celebrating a lasting love or still looking for The One. Even the most cynical of readers will be charmed by Drummond’s hilarious story of being won over by a cowboy.”

More About the Author

Hi! I'm Ree Drummond, also known as The Pioneer Woman. After marrying a cattle rancher, moving to the country, and having babies for ten years, I started a blog on a whim in 2006. There, I shared stories from my childhood, photos of my children growing up in the country, and eventually, recipes I cooked for my family. This eventually led to my first cookbook, which was released in 2009, and two cookbooks since. I love writing about food (and taking photos of food!) both in my cookbooks and on my website. I also love eating the food I write about!

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.

I don't read many romantic books, but I really enjoyed reading this fun story of how Ree Drummond and her husband met. Falling in love drastically altered her future life. She has a pleasant writing style, and while her story could have been too cheesy, it's not. Her re-telling made me feel sentimental and brought back emotions that you feel when everything is so new and so uncertain.

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.

I just finished this book, and I enjoyed it a great deal. I must say that I am puzzled by the negative reviews of this book. I almost did not read it as a result of the reviews, but I'm glad I went ahead and did. I think some of the negative reviewers failed to grasp a couple of things. First, the tone is completely humorous, the way Ree is--very self-deprecating. If you have ever watched her program or read her blog, you should get that she has a very "tongue-in-cheek" sense of humor, and there were spots in the book that made me laugh out loud (like when she had the sweat attack at the wedding of her fiancé's cousin--that reads like an episode from I LOVE LUCY, and who hasn't had an embarrassing situation like that happen to them at some point?). Second, one of the themes of Ree's memoir is that she knew that if she wanted to marry her rancher and live the ranch life, she would have to "toughen up" (as she put it), stop running away from her fears, and face reality. Her then-fiancé is purposely trying to introduce her to what life is really like there, which is why he tries to get her more comfortable on a horse, takes her to the fire with him, etc. Ree discovers the reality and sometimes the dangers as opposed to her idealized romantic image of life on the prairie. I do not think she wrote the book in an attempt to solve world peace or answer the big philosophical questions in life, and I did not expect the book to be like that. What I wanted and what I got was a fun, often hilariously funny, and entertaining read. Despite what some of the other reviewers here think, I do believe her story is meaningful in its way. Sure, it is a fairy tale of sorts, but romances usually are!

Ok, I have a thing for cowboys, in fact, my husband of 35 years wears a Stetson, and even if we don't run cattle, we occasionally have to send a stray back to the neighbors. So, I was hooked at first by the thought of another suburban girl like myself falling for that tall dark stranger with the Wranglers. And for the most part I really enjoyed hearing about the courtship of these two unlikely souls. But my only complaint and why I didn't rate this book with an extra star, is that I felt it became a little too redundant, could have been a lot shorter without losing any of the story. In fact, it might have been better if it was edited a bit more.

I love PW and follow her blog daily. I was so excited to get this book and read it since I had read the story on her site about how she and her husband met and fell in love. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed in this book. Only the last 85 pages is new material. The majority of the material can be read for free online. Also, the story up through the wedding is very detailed and flows beautifully. The story that takes place after the wedding doesn't have a lot of detail and doesn't really flow that well, but what can be expected when you are using 85 pages to cover a year when you have previously used 230 pages to describe the first year? The price is very high, even at the sale price, for the amount of new material. I suggest checking this book out from your library rather than purchasing it, or just reading the blog for free.

I love Ree's writing style and have been eagerly awaiting the book, in the hopes of being able to read well beyond what is posted on the blog. If you have read along on the blog and like her style, this is what you will find in the book. I find her writing style much like somebody talking amongst friends and her way of describing things/situations/feelings makes me laugh out loud at times. Much the same as on her blog really :)

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!
