Plots and Pans by Kelly Hake with #Review



Can A Cranky Cowboy. . .
Order dictates Tucker Carmichael’s life—his orders. On a cattle drive, a moment’s hesitation can mean the difference between life and death. The Chisholm Trail is dirty, dangerous, and no place for dainty ladies. That’s just part of why he loves it.
. . .and A Clever Cook. . .
Jessalyn Culpepper’s life is perfectly ordered—by men. By her father’s mandate, she was booted from their beloved ranch for lady lessons abroad. Now Jessalyn has returned home, determined to show them all that a woman can manage everything from cooking to cattle—whether they like it or not!
. . .Stir Up More Than Trouble?
Tucker does his level best to keep his partner’s headstrong sister out of trouble—and he’s horrified when she wants to join the cattle drive. But when they lose their chuck wagon cook, the last thing Tucker wants might be the only solution. . . .
Will God lead two stubborn souls to love along a trail filled with their Plots and Pans?

MY REVIEW-
When I heard about this new book from author Kelly Hake, I was very interested in it. It was a historical comedy after all with cowboys and set in Texas:) Who could resist! Not me for sure. I have always enjoyed her mothers books so I knew I would like this one. I just didn't realize how much I would:)

The two main characters are Jessalyn and Tucker. But the secondary characters were almost my favorite. Jess was sent away to a young ladies boarding school in England when she was little and an accident happened. Ever since she believes she killed her father(Not going into details so I don't give anything away). When she finally gets the message he has passed away she escapes the boarding school and heads across the ocean to come home. One of the funniest parts is when she rides up to the ranch. Tucker thinks she is a drifter looking for work and instructs him/her to go to the bunk house. Then when he can't find the drifter he gets upset. You have to read it to appreciate the humor:)

Tucker is a great guy though a bit controlling. At the same time I often found myself taking his side in the arguments between him and Jess. She was quite bossy and wanting to take off by herself while he is trying to watch over her. 

This is a really good book filled with humor and fun while at the same time imparting truth from Scripture. As I said above, the secondary characters were almost more sweet than Jess and Tucker. Excellent book!

I received a copy of this book from BookFun for my review purposes.
