Barking Up the Wrong Tree

Book 3, The Sex and Sweet Tea Series

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


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.

Another hit by Juliette Poe!!!

I can't believe how many times I laughed while reading this book!!! This whole series is adorably sweet and funny, but this has to be the best one yet!!!

Laken is fiercely independent, slightly broken, and snarky as all get out!!! I freaking loved her!!! And, how can one man be so perfect!!! Jake was incredible!!! I can't say too much without giving things away and ruining the story for others, but... I'll say this, never has a male character pushed so many of the right buttons. This guy... sigh!!!

Juliette Poe has another hit on her hands!!!


I've enjoyed this series, so far, but Jake and Laken were by far my favorite! I loved it from beginning to end and didn't want to put it down! Jake may be my new favorite book boyfriend!

Sex, Sweet-Tea and Shenanigans

Barking Up the Wrong Tree is the 3rd in a series...however, can be read as a standalone as well. Loved this sexy, cute and romantic book by Juliette Poe. Laken is a small town girl from Whynot, NC - she's had the big city life before and not interested in any of it...then...oh yes, then... she meets Mr. Ex-football player, big city first time farm owner a/k/a Mr. Jake McDaniel. He buys a farm - that comes with animals and hilarity of the animals throughout the book had me laughing out loud on several occasions. Laken is the small town vet and Mr. McDaniel needs her assistance since he knows absolutely nothing about what he's doing regarding animals. The series - Sex and Sweet Tea is about the shenanigans of the Mancinkus family (brothers and sister). I can't wait for the next book and adventure with the Mancinkus shenanigans. Enjoy!
