Book Review, “Peace in the Valley,” Ruth Logan Herne author

peace in the valley cover

Peace in the Valley, by Ruth Logan Herne, is the third book in the Double S Ranch series.  This book illustrates what can happen to people when they follow God’s plan rather than their own. It completes the story of the Stafford family.

Trey Walker Stafford returns home to central Washington to give part of his liver to his uncle/father, Sam Stafford, the man who rescued him after his parents’ death and took him in as his own son. When Sam asks Trey to help him repay Lucy Carlton’s family for his past uncaring behavior by restoring her crumbling farm, Trey is happy to help.  But as Lucy and Trey work together and grow closer, he discovers Lucy’s past and is reminded of his late wife’s mistakes. He must decide if he can put the past aside and move on to share a life with Lucy and her children. His country singer superstar status only complicates the matter, leaving Lucy to guard her heart and expect disappointment.

I enjoyed this book. It was a fitting conclusion to this beautiful story of forgiveness and restitution. I found Lucy a very down to earth person, easy to relate to in real life. I especially liked Isabo, who seemed to lovingly take control when others needed her.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian fiction.

Book Review, “Back in the Saddle,” Ruth Logan Herne author

Back in the Saddle coverBack in the Saddle, by Ruth Logan Herne, is the first book in the Double S Ranch series. It is set in Gray’s Glen, Washington, a small town far from anything resembling a big city, where Sam Stafford has spent a lifetime building his ranch.

Colt Stafford returns home to the Double S Ranch discouraged and ready to start over. While he had not planned for this when he left for Wall Street years ago, a change in the market has left him no other option. He returns to find Angelina, the new-to-him housekeeper, pointing a gun at him, causing suspicion from the very beginning. Angelina, glad to have this respite from the dangers of the Seattle police force, is not prepared for Colt’s intrusion upon her life. Neither of them is prepared for the instant attraction that they feel, and their lives appear to be headed in different directions. As they work to help Colt’s father and brother, as well as the town of Gray’s Glen, things begin to change.

I enjoyed this book. It shows an intergenerational family working together for the good of not only their own interests, but also the entire community. I especially liked Isabo, with her dedication to her family and others.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian romance novels.
