I first read Back in the Saddle by this author and was very impressed by her writing. Home on the Range was her next book and, again, I was very impressed especially by the characters that have been in each book. Now comes the third book and I wondered how I would like this one. I was not disappointed at all.
All three books have followed the sons of the legendary Sam Stafford and his Double S Ranch.
Peace in the Valley follows Trey Walker Stafford's story. He was raised by Sam Stafford after his parents were killed. But, Trey has other ideas. He left the Double S Ranch to try and have a music career and against Sam's wishes. He finds out his uncle is very sick and returns home when he finds out he is the best match for a procedure that could save Sam's life. Trey has not had an easy life since he left the ranch. He did find fame and success but lost his wife in a tragic way. Enter the single mother Lucy Carlton who needs help with her farm and Trey accepts the challenge. Will they as they work together find a common bond? Can Trey let go of the grief he has carried for years and can Lucy let go of the painful history she has carried too?
Can't tell you anymore because you need to read and find out for yourself if they can do it.
There is so much I have loved about this series of three books about the Stafford men. The author writes wonderful cowboy romance stories but also threads in themes of forgiveness, reconciliation and characters that you feel like you have known forever. Please pick up Ruth Logan Herne's three books and get ready for a new favorite author.
