My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Sweet short piece of fluff with cowboys and pie.
Duke works as a cook and mechanic at the M&M ranch, as a kind of adopted son of the family. His ‘brothers’ – the two M’s – and ‘Mother’, Bessie, are forever trying to help him with his love life. When a new ranch hand, Justin, shows up. Duke kind of want to let them help him…
This was a sweet story, if a bit underdeveloped. I liked both MCs and also the side characters, but would have liked a lot more flesh on the development of the relationship. But for a free short story of only 42 pages, it did quite well.
