Things in Whynot, NC have gone to the dogs, and that’s just the way the town’s only veterinarian, Laken Mancinkus, likes it. No matter if she’s up when the rooster crows, or working until the cows come home, Laken never leaves an animal in need. So when a gorgeous Yankee comes begging for help herding some wily goats, Laken is up to the task.
Jake McDaniel is looking for a tax break, and what better way than to take up…farming? This ex-football player turned businessman turned unwitting goat farmer is up to his knees in goat drama. Runaway goats, dehydrated goats, and a baby goat that wants no one other than him, Jake needs more help than he cares to admit. Good thing the sexy veterinarian is right there to
coach him on how to be a farmer. The only problem is, Laken’s not looking for anything more than a good time, while Jake is looking for his forever girl.
Will the baby goat, and Laken, be enough to get Jake to stay? Or will he take his tax break and hoof it back to Chicago? One thing is for certain…what happens on the farm doesn’t always stay on the farm.

First of all, if you haven’t read this series yet, you are completely missing out. Barking Up the Wrong Tree can be read as a standalone but I recommend you reading all of them just because they are so much fun and you get a piece of all of them in each book.
I just adore Laken. She’s Whynot’s local Vet who has a heart of gold. She’s loyal to her family and friends. She’s so confident and laid back that I legit found myself gravitating towards her and wishing we were friends. I also love that she really wasn’t looking for a relationship and then one smacks her in the face.
Jake is just so swoon worthy. He comes off as the pro athlete turned business man who screams Big City but actually seems to fit in the small town of Whynot. And let’s take a moment to talk about the baby goat! OMG, that part of the story and their entire relationship is so freaking precious.
Barking Up the Wrong Tree is chock-full of Southern sass, small town love and meddling and sweet love. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed. You’ll laugh and swoon just like the rest of us.
