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.
Whynot. A small town that brings love mysteries and a pair of sisters capable of making men go crazy ... And this is not a compliment ...
Larkin and Laken are twins.
While the first one has a bakery, Laken is the local veterinarian. They are beautiful and talented at what they do.
Their grandfather, Pap, is one that kind any girl would like to have in her family, always supporting his girls.
When a stranger arrives in the town asking for help to get his goats who had fled, he and Laken didn't get along very well at first, but after helping him and having him as a veterinary assistant the next day, Laken decided he was not all bad, he just had no aptitude for his new farmer's life. It was all a matter of time.
Jake McDaniel had made a great career and made a lot of money as a professional football player. Now retired, after getting seriously injured, he wants to set up the company he always wanted. The Farrington farm was only a way to lower his taxes.
But when he sees himself face to face with that veterinarian who was not afraid to say exactly what she thought, he had to admit that staying longer in that small town would be more fun than he had imagined.
Jake and Laken, perhaps, could exchange more information than just about animals, football and dreams for the future.
