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.

More Adorable Southern Charm.
There is something so refreshing about this series, and I don't mean the covers. Although I just adore them, a lovely change to all the others around. This book and series have a delightful home town feel about them, very family orientated and they just make me feel so happy when reading them. Juliette Poe did an amazing job once again with Barking Up the Wrong Tree - Laken's story.
Laken is a little sassy, and a lot of a head strong kinda gal. She knows what she wants, and definitely what she needs. She has a lot of compassion, mainly towards the animal variety, but when she loves, she loves hard, and I respect that immensely. Jake is completely what Laken needs. He is loyal and smart and knows when he is on a good thing. He too has a soft heart and it was so endearing when he was looking after MG. I wish I was her, sitting on his lap!
These books are all standalones, they are about five siblings and their partners, but I am loving each and every book that comes out. They are an easy book to fall into and you come away feeling revitalised and upbeat. This one is mainly told in dual POV but a chapter or so are thrown in from Pap and Herman, quite funny. I know that Colt is up next in the series, and I can't wait. Highly recommend each and every book.
