  • “An affecting new memoir…charming and romantic. Riotously funny…Drummond is…sure to have readers in tears and in stitches. In a word: delightful.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Fans of Drummond’s blog and cookbook will eat up this breathless blow-by-blow chronicle of falling in love with Marlboro Man, a.k.a. her husband, and adapting to life on his ranch…Generous dollops of self-deprecating humor contribute a welcome tang.”

    People

  • “Charming and bright, Drummond’s story will be an inspiration to those who despair of finding old-fashioned, lasting love.”

    Booklist

    BookPage

  • “Drummond charmingly delivers her own love story. When she recounts stories of food poisoning during her honeymoon and dancing through livestock poop between her front door and her car, you don’t feel guilty laughing out loud with this fun-loving redhead. Head-over-heels romantic love can endure, and Drummond’s chronicle proves it.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlene | 2/13/2014

    " Loved it!! I have followed her blog for quite a while now and I love her sense of humor and story telling style! While I borrowed this book from the library, I would like to just own it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindy | 2/10/2014

    " This book is really funny! I occasionally look on The pioneer woman's blog or watch her on TV, so it was fun to hear a little about her background. A movie is in the works too - but read the book first! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Druie | 1/29/2014

    " Really giving it a 4 1/2. Lovely love story with some laughs and some tears. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 JJ | 1/22/2014

    " I loved this romance - a true story romance that read like a novel. Quick and easy; my heart went pitter patter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 1/17/2014

    " Hard not to be enthralled with a love story that really happened. Fun to listen to her tell her story {I listened via Audible.com} "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 1/15/2014

    " while not a future classic, I really enjoyed this book, perhaps because I dreamt of one day finding a cowboy and living the life as a rancher's wife. While that isn't the path I took, it's fun to read about what "might have been". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 1/11/2014

    " I would give this memoir 2.5 - 3 stars. I wanted to like it so much more than I did. I even found myself skimming pages, which I never do. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Betsy Wasser | 12/30/2013

    " What might work in a blog does not work in a book. This was repetitive, and the characters were one-dimensional. No one's motivation made sense. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kimberly | 12/22/2013

    " Much better as a blog than a book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mollie | 12/12/2013

    " Ree makes a life that could be so average, very fun and entertaining. A good read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 April Lloyd | 11/10/2013

    " I read this because I love Pioneer Woman. It was what I expected. "

    " Made me want to turn my husband into a cowboy/rancher. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephanie | 9/13/2013

    " VERY rarely do I put a book down but I can't plow thru this one. I have enjoyed the blog however I don't share her adoration of the Marlboro Man's muscles. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly | 8/27/2013

    " Totally loved this book. Read it twice. Back to back. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ma | 6/28/2013

    " Though I love Ree & her family, this book was about 100 pages too long. We get it--Marlboro Man made your knees weak. ;) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 thatShortchick | 6/21/2013

    " SO MUCH SWOONING. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 6/5/2013

    " Very entertaining and made me want to keep reading. I hope she writes a sequel, something I rarely (or never) have said in the past. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz Burnham | 11/15/2012

    " This was a very pleasant romance story, with some very funny episodes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy Kozurek | 5/20/2012

    " Ok, I am now embarassed, this was my guilty pleasure. The 'courtship' was closely followed and I was always rooting for Ree. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara Lux | 4/9/2012

    " Cute in a corny sort of way....love Ree! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 2/25/2012

    " Funny story to read. Connected well because she was at USC during the LA riots and I was right across town. If you're a fan of Ree Drummond, this is a great, quick read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Courtney | 12/18/2011

    " This book started out all right but quickly degenerated into a lot of the author talking about her clothing and how she and Marlboro Man kissed a lot, and there wasn't much else to it. We hardly learn anything about anyone else but the author and most of the funny stuff wasn't really even funny. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaye | 11/13/2011

    " Loved every minute of this book! I guess it was because it was so "true to life". Makes me want to get another pair of cowboy boots and a horse! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lizzy | 10/30/2011

    " Loved this book. Easy read but really entertaining. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Patti | 7/27/2011

    " Cute book, easy read, some laugh out loud moments (I loved her wedding present), but not well written. I read it for my book club and that's OK with me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beverlee | 7/5/2011

    " This is the story, a trifle romanticized, of how Rees Drummond (the Pioneer Woman) met and married her husband. I enjoyed reading it. If it were a candy, though, it would be more divinity than truffle. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 5/20/2011

    " The language and plot were a little sugary for me (I got it - the man is hot and perfect. I would have like to have seen some imperfections pointed out). But overall a fun book with several laugh-out-loud moments. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/19/2011

    " I read most of the story on PW's website so really only part 3 was new. The story was decent but I found myself wondering why this story was worthy of a book over all the other love stories there are out there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ami | 5/18/2011

    " Very cute and fun read. Good to know love stories still exist! I love her style of writing, it's like listening to an old friend. Lots of laugh out loud moments, her book just makes you feel happy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 5/17/2011

    " I do not usually like memoirs, but this one was good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caroline | 5/17/2011

    " Cute. Entertaining. Had to skim most of it because there's only so many times I can read about her mooning over Marlboro Man. We get it! We get that you find him handsome and strong and feel safe in his arms. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Misty | 5/17/2011

    " Best biography I ever read!! "

    " I am a big fan of the Pioneer Woman website (both her photography and recipes!) so I was looking forward to reading the book. I thought it was an entertaining love story and had me laughing a lot through Ree's storytelling. A fast, quick read as well! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 5/15/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carissa | 5/14/2011

    " Cute story. Terrible writing. The entire time I kept thinking, "didn't she have an editor?" So many repetitious phrases, lots of swooning. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 5/11/2011

    " It was exactly Ree Drummond. Her personality and quirks were all in there. Plus some recipes at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robbyn | 5/11/2011

    " Many have said there were too many descriptions of his wrangler pants but it is so nice to see two people so in love. A great story that is hard to believe is right in our backyard if Oklahoma. "
