Hootertown, Kentucky is a regular small town with all the ingredients and people to make Dark Roots and Cowboy Boots a hilarious read. If the title doesnít grab you like it did me, then Jaime Lee Carter will.

Jaime Lee is a small town beautician who likes her faded jeans and white t-shirt just fine, thank you very much, and she is not about to change her ways even when fancy-schmancy Hollywood producer Parker Carrington comes breezing into town in his polished loafers and silver-toned Jaguar. But itís not Parker she is out to impress; itís her childhood crush, Griffin Sheldon.

Griffin Sheldon has been best friends with Jaime Leeís brother since they were boys in Spiderman jammies and has always treated Jaime like the sister he never had. But that is all about to change when Jamie Lee and her best friend and working partner set out to capture the men of their dreams.

It's laugh out loud every time Jaime Lee refers to her assets as boobies, and when Parker canít seem to adjust to small-town life after living in Hollywood but still loves it, or when Griffin passes out right in the middle of doing the deed.

McLane totally captures the essence of small-town life and almost makes you want to trade in your designer jeans for a Texas-sized belt buckle, if it werenít for the gossip that exceeds its limits at times.

The sex scenes are fantastic, and the moment Griffin finally figures out that heís in love with Jaime Lee will make you cry. I cannot say enough good things about this book; I read it in about ten hours flat - I couldnít get away from all the high jinks that Jaime Lee gets herself into. I canít wait for her next book, The Real McCoy, the story of Macy, Jaime Leeís best friend.
