"Plots and Pans" by Kelly Eileen Hake

About this book:

  “Order dictates Tucker Carmichael’s life— his orders. On a cattle drive, a moment’s hesitation can mean death. The Chisholm Trail is dirty, dangerous, and no place for women. After years at school, Jessalyn Culpepper has come home and is determined to show everyone that a woman can manage everything from cooking to cattle—whether they like it or not! Tucker tries to manage his partner’s headstrong sister, horrified when she wants to join the cattle drive. But when they need a chuck wagon cook, Jessalyn seems the only solution. Will God stir up love along a trail filled with their Plots and Pans?

Series: As of now, no.

Spiritual Content- Tucker & Desta have a Faith, and while she was raised in the Word, Jessalyn has a hard time separating her earthly father with her Heavenly Father; Church goin’, many Prayers are said,  Scriptures are quoted & Bible reading and talks about God, His Will, and Trusting Him.

Negative Content- Minor cussing including: a ‘heck’; Being on a cattle ranch, mentions of chicken pluckers, sewing bulls’ eyes shut and how they may have to shoot an animal to put it out of its misery (they never do) {Very sensitive animal lovers read with caution—I skimmed those parts}  

Sexual Content- One not-detailed kiss; Tucker wants to hold Jessalyn many times.

My Personal Rating- 

This book made me swoon and grin like a ninny!  It was so stinkin’ cute! And it was set in Texas! Bonus points for that! {Whaaat? Me? Biased? Nooooo!} Plus the cover is perfect for “Plots and Pans”, {Get it? Plots and Pans? Like Pots and Pans? Heeheehee!} the girl on the front cover has a mischievous look – like she’s up to trouble! Just perfect!

See y'all on Monday for another review! :)
