Peace in the Valley | Ruth Logan Herne

 

 

Today I am reviewing Peace in the Valley, the third book in the Double S Ranch series by Ruth Logan Herne.

Here is a brief synopsis:

In spite of their differences, Trey Walker Stafford knows he owes his life to cowboy and legendary rancher Sam Stafford–the uncle who rescued him after his parents’ death.

Trey had left the Double S Ranch to pursue music against Sam’s wishes, but returns to central Washington when he learns he’s the best match for a procedure that could save Sam’s life.

Although Trey’s found country music fame and success, he’s also endured the tragic loss of his wife. He croons about love, but struggles with a yawning emptiness he can’t explain.

Overwhelmed by a growing list of challenges, but mistrustful of Stafford men, single mother Lucy Carlton reluctantly accepts Trey’s help to revive her crumbling farm when Sam instructs him to repay the overdue debt to her family.

As the two grow closer, Trey slowly begins to open his heart to this beautiful woman and strives to let go of the grief he’s held for years. Lucy has a complicated history of her own. Can Trey accept her as she is, learn to forgive the past, and find the elusive peace he’s sought for so long?

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

This is another series by Ruth Logan Herne for my TOP SHELF!

When Trey Stafford learns that his uncle needs him, he returns home, prepared to do the right thing. While he’s there, he meets Lucy Carlton, who needs his help, too.

This is such an intriguing story. . . a member of my family had the same procedure, so it was very familiar to me. The story was great, with colorful characters facing more than one challenge.

Don’t miss out on this wonderful new book from Ruth Logan Herne.

Home on the Range | Ruth Logan Herne

 

 

Today I am reviewing Home on the Range, the second book in the Double S Ranch series by Ruth Logan Herne.

Here is a brief synopsis:

A cowboy romance with a heart of gold…

In Home on the Range author Ruth Logan Herne returns readers to the Double S Ranch where God and family are first, but love is certain to follow the Stafford menfolk.

Nick made all the wrong choices for all the wrong reasons. His father had failed at marriage and fatherhood. Nick was determined to show him up. He’d be a better husband, better father and a better ranch manager than Sam Stafford ever hoped to be.

But Nick’s wife Whitney hated the ranch and she walked out on Nick and their two beautiful daughters three years ago. For a long time Nick pretended everything was fine and when his stubborn nature is finally challenged by trouble with his young girls, he’s faced with the changes he should have made long ago.

Psychologist Dr. Elsa Andreas had a thriving family therapy practice, a school commission, a good life, but tragedy pushes Elsa to walk away from her life. Three years later, she’s tucked herself in the backwoods of Gray’s Glen.

When her sister encourages her to help Nick Stafford’s daughters, Elsa takes a chance. But Nick’s ex-wife comes back to town, threatening the girls’ newfound stability. Can Nick find the forgiveness and Else the courage to build their own “Home on the Range”?

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Back In The Saddle was so much fun to read . . . Home On The Range is every bit as good, although I won’t say it’s all fun. Ruthy deals with some painful subjects, such as divorce, desertion, plus a panic attack or two thrown in for good measure.

Nick Stafford has made his share of mistakes, but he’s determined to do his best, where his two daughters are concerned. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that his best is enough — his oldest daughter is failing school — and has more attitude than she needs!

Elsa needs to rejoin the world, starting with helping Nick and his girls. Can she overcome her past long enough to reach for a future that includes a family? You won’t know until you read the book – and you really should read the book. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as I did… to the very end.

Back In The Saddle | Ruth Logan Herne

 

 

Today I am reviewing Back In The Saddle, the first book in the Double S Ranch series by Ruth Logan Herne.

Here is a brief synopsis:

The Prodigal Is Coming Home

It’s been a long time since Colt Stafford shrugged off his cowboy legacy for shiny Manhattan loafers and a promising career on Wall Street.

But when stock market manipulations leave him financially strapped, the oldest son of legendary rancher Sam Stafford decides to return to the sprawling Double S ranch in Gray’s Glen, Washington.

He’s broke, but not broken, and it’s time to check in with his ailing father, and get his legs back under him by climbing into the saddle again.

He doesn’t expect to come home to a stranger pointing a loaded gun at his chest— a tough yet beautiful woman that Sam hired as the house manager. Colt senses there’s more to Angelina Morales than meets the eye and he’s determined to find out what she’s hiding…and why.

Colt’s return brings new challenges. Younger brother Nick has been Sam’s right-hand man at the ranch for years and isn’t thrilled at having Colt insert himself into Double S affairs. And the ranch’s contentious relationship with the citizens of Gray’s Glen asks all the Stafford men to examine their hearts about what it truly means to be a neighbor.

And as Wall Street recovers, will Colt succumb to the call of the financial district’s wealth and power—or finally the courage to stay in the saddle for good?

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Ruth Logan Herne is beyond amazing!

Somehow, even though I’ve read most of her books, she continues to amaze me with her wonderful stories, full of interesting, colorful characters, living in small towns and/or big cities.

Back In The Saddle was so much fun to read . . . Angelina Morales isn’t happy to see Colt Stafford return to the Double S ranch – and she isn’t afraid to show it. Colt comes crawling back, broke and hoping to step back into the place he held before he left home.

But will it be as easy as he thinks? You won’t know until you read the book – and you should read the book. I’m sure you’ll be as entertained as I was… all the way to the end.

Home on the Range | Ruth Logan Herne

 

Today I am reviewing Home on the Range, the second book in the Double S Ranch series by the incomparable Ruth Logan Herne.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Can the brother left behind and a woman without hope work together for the good of two precious children?

Nick Stafford stayed in central Washington, working his family’s large ranch after his brothers left to pursue other passions but his toughest job is being a single dad.

As a child he watched his father fail at marriage and parenting, so Nick was determined to show him up. He d be a better husband, father, and ranch manager than Sam Stafford ever was.

Despite that commitment, three years after Nick s wife left him, he has a daughter in trouble at school and both of his girls are facing issues that force him to rethink his stubborn plans.

For Dr. Elsa Andreas, life fell apart when tragedy caused her to abandon her family therapy practice and retreat to the backwoods of Gray s Glen. Her school principal sister believes Elsa can guide the Stafford girls and that working with kids will draw Elsa out of her protective bubble.

Summer on the Double S teems with life and adventure. Amid the bounty of God and land, will Nick and Elsa find the courage to build futures based on faith rather than fear?

I’ve read most of her books, and if she continues to amaze me with wonderful stories full of interesting, colorful characters, I’ll be forced to continue to read — and enjoy — her books!
