About a week after I started writing Picture Perfect Wedding, my Wisconsin Dairy book, we went to visit friends who've have retired to a small property. I say retired in a very loose sense, because they're working really hard on their land. They're part of the migration of fit retirees who change their city job for a country lifestyle and they took their city dog with them.
Maggie-May is a Maltese Shih-Tzu-cross....a little, white terrier and now she thinks she's a cattle dog! She's also very keen to defend the home garden from snakes and other wildlife that wander through and she has different barks. Here she is, exploring a 200 year old tree that came down in the wind!
And then I had fun! Erin Davis is a photographer from Minneapolis and she has a Maltese Shih Tzu cross terrier and Luke Anderson, dairyman from Whitetail Wisconsin has Mac, a Border collie.
After Erin gets bogged in Luke's pasture and her dog defends her by clamping her small teeth into Luke's shin, things are not going so well.
Erin Davis will do whatever it takes to be the photographer for high-end brides. So what if capturing the moments of people’s lives means she has no time for her own. Nothing will get between her and the security she craves, not even the gorgeous farmer refusing to let her shoot in his sunflowers.
His family has always been tied to the land, but lately Luke Anderson feels more like he’s chained. While he ponders his future, he still has cows to milk and no time to deal with Erin or Bridezillas in his fields. Yet there’s something about the sexy city girl he can’t say no to. So he says yes: just this once.
With the town in need of a photographer, Erin agrees to spend wedding season in Whitetail. The sparks flying between her and Luke quickly ignite, but just as Erin starts to picture her own happy ending, Luke takes a gamble that could risk it all…
