Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5EnjoyedJune 23, 2017Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I really enjoyed this book. This is the first book I have had the opportunity to read by this author. Some of my favorite characters were Colt and Angelina. But I also enjoyed reading about Colt's father, Sam. It seems like he had a major transformation in his life, and it was fun to read about it and watch him bond with his children who were estranged and choose a new path. It was great proof that there is always possibility for change. I also enjoyed the faith aspect of the book.
I can't really think of anything about the book that I just didn't like. Of course there were some characters that weren't quite as lovable, but they made the story interesting, and added depth. I am really looking forward to reading book two, which as far as I can tell is about Colt's brother Nick. In this particular book, Nick is a struggling dad, whose wife left him and his two girls. He is having a hard time admitting the need for help. His children are suffering from his lack of understanding of their needs. He would probably be the character you'd want to smack some sense into, but his emotional state is understandable considering what he has gone through. I can't wait to see things turn around for him.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves a good clean story of redemption.
I received this book courtesy of blogging for book to read. I was not asked or required to review positively.

She is also now faced with dealing with Sam's oldest when it seems that all is lost she starting to question her choices and weather or not she belongs at the ranch any more. Can she make the best choices for her family?
I LOVED this book. I super enjoyed the fun characters and the banter and the personalities of the young kids they seem to add a whole new element to the story itself. I totally enjoyed the small home feel of the book and how the past can seem to be everywhere good and bad but finding healing in it all seemed to be the key of this story. I really enjoyed the overall story nothing I didn't like. I enjoyed the fact that I got sucked in and couldn't put it down. This book is a clean romance and well worth the read.
Amy CVAAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Back in the SaddleApril 10, 2017Amy CVAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Back in the Saddle is book one from the Double S Ranch series by Ruth Logan Herne. Ex cowboy Colt Stafford returns home to his familys ranch, Double S Ranch, in Grays Glen, Washington, after his career on Wall Street in Manhattan does not work out as he had hoped. He finds some new surprises at the ranch upon his return to the ranch his father, Sam, is not doing well; he meets the new housekeeper, Angeline, who is a beautiful, gun toting and secretive woman; his brother, Nick, is not happy with older brothers return. Will these surprises make him run far away from the ranch or will new promises on Wall Street make him run back to Manhattan.
Back in the Saddle is the first book I have read by Ruth Logan Herne. I kept thinking this book would be what a modern day story by Mary Connealy would be like. I found myself laughing out loud in several scenes, including within the first few pages, which caught my interest instantly. Angeline was probably my favorite character. I just loved her strength as a woman and loved her scenes with Colt. They both needed find themselves and figure out where they belong.
I enjoyed this book and look forward to more by this author and cannot wait to the next installment in the Double S Ranch series.
I received this book from the Blogging for Books program. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
Trixi5 Stars Out Of 5Engaging from the start!November 8, 2016TrixiQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Colt Stafford's home! Not by choice, but by circumstances beyond his control. He's got a lot of fences to mend and head-clearing to do, but it's nothing a bit of hard work & determination can't fix! Toss in a fiercely devoted, stubborn & feisty lady house manager with secrets of her own, two precarious nieces vying for his attention, a disgruntled younger brother, a sickly father full of lifetime regrets to make up for and a whole herd of cattle in birthing season to tend to and you got yourself the makings of a hot mess! One thing God is trying to remind Colt of, His timing is eternal and perfect--whether this cowboy turned Wall Street financial wizard can see it or not!
The Stafford family is like any other you'd find today, imperfect people living imperfect lives. Too many regrets and heartache and a lot of love to give! Sam Stafford; father, rancher, stubborn as the day is long, wants to make amends with his sons. Is it too late or will Colt accept the changes he sees? If it's one thing God can do perfectly, is the business of reconciliation, redemption and second chances. I loved seeing hearts change in this story, how God took the hard ground and watered it with His love and made things new again! A deeply rich emotional story that will entangle you from the start, full of characters you can relate to and spiritual lessons to learn. This reminded me of the Prodigal son story in that no matter how far away we are, God will seek us out and bring us home again!
I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment of the Double S Ranch; "Home on the Range" Nick Stafford's story!
