Robbed of her tiara and college scholarship due to a technicality 20 years earlier, Jenn Lind hates all things Minnesota. But she manages to parlay her time as an outcast in her small town to her advantage and becomes the ultimate Minnesotan - at least to the media. On the cusp of national stardom, she has to travel back her small Minnesota hometown to co-marshal a festival with sexy sculptor Steve who carved her likeness into a huge brick of butter. That butter head has survived all these years and is the key to where his first sculpture is, so Steve has a vested interest in traveling to the festival. Add to the mix a town of wary citizens, disgruntled city workers, a shrewish ex-wife, and a thief on a mission, and chaos ensues before the festival even starts- especially when the butter head suddenly goes missing.
At times Brockway's debut contemporary novel is funny, but overall, the story is flat, the Minnesotans are portrayed as bumpkins, and the novel travels at a snail's pace. The dialogue is kind of cheesy and there is no real chemistry between the two leads. For me, the novel was just pretty average, and I couldn't help but thinking that she should stick with writing historical romances.
