A clever spoof-ish tale about a widowed ranch lady being pressured to marry! Quite clever she is, creating contests that should be impossible but prove not to be. And yet, she finds away around each smirk that wants her hand in marriage. Peace is once again restored on the ranch but the lady of the house finds herself suddenly lonely and realized to whom her heart really belongs...

Sweet and strong, a fun read all around.

Very few tall tales are this funny and sweet, and I'm pretty sure this is the only one with giant turtles. When the widowed Tulip Jones ends up with 35 million dollars and moves to By-Golly Gully, Texas, she has no idea how much trouble is waiting for her! Everything is bigger in Texas, including the line of suitors who want to marry the widow. Her plan to get rid of them seems doomed to fail, too... so luckily her gal ranch hands have a backup plan. A happily ever after that's 100% satisfying.
