Blog Tour & Review: Barking up the Wrong Tree

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.

Any book with kids or animals---done right---just can't be a bad story in my world.  You know it's going to be even better when we get chapters in the animals POV! Juliette Poe brings us a light romantic romp back in the town of Whynot, NC.  Laken is the town veterinarian and ends up rescuing and escaped herd of goats for the city boy who just bought a local farm.  What follows is flirting and the potential for some thing with no strings attached.  But then baby goats happen and Jake and Laken spend more time together. (see--babies AND animals---good book!)

As always, this author brings us a well rounded cast of secondary characters.  The small town feel and the gossip circles keep things entertaining.  It was great to catch up on Laken's family again.  Just a couple more siblings left to meet their HEA.  Looking forward to reading more about the residents of Whynot.

Take a trip to NC and meet the wonderful folks of Whynot.  Lovely romantic read!

Juliette Poe is the sweet and swoony alter ego of New York Times Best Selling author, Sawyer Bennett.

A fun-loving southern girl, Juliette knows the allure of sweet tea, small towns, and long summer nights, that some of the best dates end sitting on the front porch swing, and that family is top priority. She brings love in the south to life in her debut series, Sex & Sweet Tea.

When Juliette isn’t delivering the sweetest kind of romance, she’s teaching her southern belle daughter the fine art of fishing, the importance of wearing Chucks, and the endless possibilities of a vivid imagination.
