Taylor arrives in Gooding, Texas (the setting of Fancy Pants, Forevermore and Whirlwind) to take over the medical practice from Doc Wicky, who has been run out of town. The people of the town hadn't been expecting a woman doctor and many of them try to get her to leave.
Karl Van der Vort is the town's blacksmith and isn't happy when he unwittingly becomes the female doctor's first patient.
Taylor wants only to prove herself as a doctor whilst Karl's protective nature wants to keep her safe. Her pride and independent streak pitted against his stubborness make for interesting reading.

Tracy's first major medical emergency was Karl, a huge, muscled blacksmith who had several pieces of iron imbedded in his leg and was in danger of loosing his leg. Tracy was able to get the iron out of his leg and get him back to work, even though her was brought in to her in a wheelbarrow! He was torn between accepting her help and feeling very apprehensive about her working on him. He admired her spunk and expertise, and she was attracted to him and his "peasant" ways. He instantly became her protector, even though the townspeople tried to make her leave. They went as far as to make mud messes in her surgery. Through it all, she kept working and doing her best.
Enoch was accepted right away and they guys tried to get him to work on them instead of letting Tracy work on them, but they stuck together.
This book was written with a lot of humor and love, and pulls you into it, as if though you lived in that era. I enjoyed the book very much and ended up glad that I was not born in that time! I recommend this book to all.
Enoch and Taylor are twins that have come to Gooding to fill the positions of town doctor and vet. Even though they made it clear that Taylor is a woman, the townsfolk don't agree with having a woman doctor. Some of them are ready to make sure she leaves, no matter what.
Karl has had an accident shortly before Taylor arrives and is in a bad way when he is finally brought to her door. His leg isn't looking good, but he would rather die than have it amputated. Taylor vows to do her best, and is able to save his leg and his life. Rather than be grateful, he's determined to convince her that she wasn't meant to be a doctor.
Verbal sparring commences and these two are pretty good at it. When one makes a point, the other concedes that part of the battle, but it's not clear who will end up winning this war. They're both pretty stubborn.
The book is lighthearted and has some pretty funny moments. There are characters from some of the other books that pop up, but you'd be okay reading them out of order. This series was a nice read and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
