Reactions to The Pioneer Woman's New Book

If you read my blog yesterday then you already know that I received an advanced copy of PW's new book Black Heels to Tractor Wheels: A Love Story

 I have decided to write about my reactions to Ree's novel. Don't worry, I will not be telling any spoilers. I want everyone else to be able to have the same experience reading her book as I did. 

Ree's love story is sweet, sad, hilarious, frustrating, and "Aww" inducing. Yes there were several times an audible Aww came out of my mouth. Many times I laughed out loud. The statement "Honey, she is asking if you have farted today!" comes to mind.  I laughed for 5 minutes when she wrote an entire page about a simple question about farting.  Sorry I wrote fart so many times. If it offends you, well, I'm just keeping it real. 

There are few times where her stories seem somewhat scatter brained and not fully completed.  Like there could have been more to that story than what she was telling. I felt like it was missing something. But I felt like these tales of romance were coming from a real person in real life situations.  

Now, I am no literary critic at all.  All of these opinions are my own thoughts. I encourage you to go and read the book and love it as much as I do. When you are finished maybe you will see the cowboy in your own man or just find your wrangler wearing cowboy. I know I did, just without the Wranglers. I wonder If I can get SL to wear chaps...

Ree's book comes out Feb. 1st. Go and get it, or buy the ebook. You will love it. She is also going on a book signing tour.  Go to The Pioneer Woman webpage for days and times in you area.


  1. I'm terribly jealous!

    I pre-ordered my copy... waiting for it now!

  2. When it comes in and you finish it you will have to let me know what you think. I'm ready for more people to read the book and to share their thoughts as well.

  3. I have never seen this Pioneer site or heard of it until a friend loaned me her cookbook and love story to read. I felt like I was reading a high school girl's diary, full of virginal longings,dreams, and ramblings. It just didn't come across as real considering she obviously had prior experience with men. Can't believe her husband was for making their personal life so public but to each his own.
    FYI-I stumbled in here but I really related to the pic of the young wife sitting on the bucket with her broom. After over 43yrs. of marriage it brought back a few memories. Hooray for Swifters. God Bless.
