Mia has had her whole life mapped out since she was 18. She’s supposed to follow up her math PhD with a research postdoc, but her 20-year tenure plan takes a surprise deviation when she’s forced to settle for a temporary teaching job at a small-town university.
It’s not easy adapting to rural life when you’re an inveterate city girl, but Mia tries to make the best of it until she can get the heck out of Podunk—er, Crowder, Texas. Things finally start to look up after a run-in with some terrifying local wildlife sends her careening into the arms of a sexy goat farmer/cheesemaker.
Mia finds herself unexpectedly drawn to Josh’s gruff cowboy charms, especially after she learns what lies behind the thick walls he’s built around his heart. The deeper their connection grows, the more Crowder starts to feel like home.
But Mia can’t afford to stay. Not unless she’s willing to give up on her dream—or trade it in for a new one.

In Review: My Thoughts
I absolutely love Susannah Nix’s Chemistry Lessons with its STEM heroines and I was thrilled to get another dose of this world. I believe it’s the last one in the series, which makes it a little bittersweet, but I am pumped for the spinoff series. I’m getting ahead of myself though.
In Elementary Romantic Calculus, math whiz Mia moves to a small town in Texas to teach at the university. Naturally, some amount of wildlife/farm animal hijinks ensue. And while those parts were super fun, it was her connection with Josh, the sexy farmer, and his family that reeled me in. I adored the romance that developed between Mia and Josh and the friendships she found with his aunt and sister. And even though the bulk of the math talk went over my head — I’m not a numbers person, y’all — I loved watching Mia find herself in Crowder.
Now the wait begins for My Cone and Only, the first book in her King Family spinoff series. I *need* Andie and Wyatt’s story. Like, as soon as possible.
