Audible Editor Reviews

Ree Drummond, author of the award-winning ThePioneerWoman.com, once advised her readers interested in blogging themselves to “write as if you’re talking to your sister”. Charmingly self aware, Drummond possesses a voice not unlike what she describes, one that pervades her writing and narration of The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels. Listening to her tell the story of how she fell in love, you quickly feel as though you’ve known Drummond for years.

The Pioneer Woman is an enchanting retelling of how Drummond made a life-altering transition from city girl to country girl. Fresh out of college in Los Angeles, where she studied Journalism at USC, it would be uncharacteristic for Drummond to trade her black pumps for a pair of cowboy boots to be with a Marlboro Man in rural Oklahoma, but that’s just what she did. On paper, one may prejudged her as a whimsical woman just dropping everything for a man, but Drummond convinces the listener that life is not always about doing what you’re expected to do, even if the unexpected involves settling down right where you grew up. Her love story is ballsy, passionate, and captivating.

This is not a conventional love story, yet Drummond does incorporate a playful Harlequin romance tone — which is charming and effective, especially as it extends into her narration. A delight not just for fans of Drummond’s blog, The Pioneer Woman is a satisfying listen from a quick-witted, charismatic woman with an endearing love story. —Suzanne Day

Publisher's Summary

"That's when I saw him—the cowboy—across the smoky room."

"I'll never forget that night. It was like a romance novel, an old Broadway musical, and a John Wayne Western rolled into one. Out for a quick drink with friends, I wasn't looking to meet anyone, let alone a tall, rugged cowboy who lived on a cattle ranch miles away from my cultured, corporate hometown. But before I knew it, I'd been struck with a lightning bolt... and I was completely powerless to stop it.

"Listen as I recount the rip-roaring details of my unlikely romance with a chaps-wearing cowboy, from the early days of our courtship (complete with cows, horses, prairie fire, and passion) all the way through the first year of our marriage, which would be filled with more challenge and strife—and manure—than I ever could have expected.

"This isn't just my love story; it's a universal tale of passion, romance, and all-encompassing love that sweeps us off our feet. It's the story of a cowboy.

"And Wranglers.

"And chaps.

"And the girl who fell in love with them."

    "Real Life Romance and Humor"

    This is the story of Ree Drummond, a city girl with big city plans, swept off her feet by "Marlborough Man" to a home on a remote cattle ranch in Oklahoma complete with all the eye-opening moments such a major life change entails. I'm a big fan of Ree's Pioneer Woman blog- a delightful spot for country cooking, gorgeous photography, and humorous anecdotes. Her audio book is just as much fun as her blog, and best of all, it is read by the author herself.

    "Cute - cute - cute."

    Ree is believable, self depricating and her love story was beautiful. She did a good job explaining the heels to tractor wheels and understood, but did not always appreciate the importance of herself on the ranch. Loved it.

    "This was a great listen."

    Amusing, real, just like Pioneer Woman is on her blog. Totally enjoyed this book, and especially loved that Pioneer Woman personally did the reading. Made the book that much more real.

    "Did I really listen to all of this?"

    A lighthearted romance. That it was true was the only reason I kept listening. Charming and cute, but... you never even knew his name!

    "Good story, but overly dramatic"

    while I enjoyed her story, she paints it more out to be like a romantic novel with rather dramatic details that are a tad over done. Yet I still found myself interested enough to listen to the very end.

    What experiences!

    You're made of strong stuff, Ree.

    How many children do you have, now? Does Marlboro Man have the help he needs? It was mentioned he wanted lots of help. The same attitude exists in the farming community where I grew up. God bless y'all.
