"Ive been so eagerly awaiting this book by Ruth Logan Herneand its even better than Id hoped. An overprotective cowboy daddy and the therapist masquerading as a woodland fairy princess called on to help his daughters… What could possibly go wrong? Just everything. The whole delightful story is full of fun twists and poignant turns. Home on the Range is a great new installment in the Double S Ranch series."
Mary Connealy, author of No Way Up
"Home on the Range showcases Ruth Logan Hernes ability to write wounded, damaged characters grasping for grace with both hands. My heart ached for Nicks loss, Elsas guilt, and little Cheyennes desperate need. As always, Hernes story is sprinkled with hope and gives the reader glimpses of the One who came to save. A satisfyingly happy ending left me sighing with contentment."
Mary Jane Hathaway, author of The Pepper in the Gumbo
"In Home on the Range, the finely crafted second story in the Double S Ranch trilogy, Nick is caught in a downward spiral of repeating his fathers mistakes and no amount of cowboy gumption is going to fix things. But Elsa, a family therapist who sought refuge in Grays Glen to escape her own tragic past, defies her fears and conventional wisdom to connect with Nick and his daughters, bringing a soothing balm to this hurting cowboys wounds. Ruth Logan Herne explores the darkest recesses of her characters souls and bring light into the shadows, giving hope to the lost and healing to the broken. This latest story is no exception and one of her finest!"

"A child in crisis, a hunky but clueless single father, and a reclusive therapist with a big secret… Intrigued? I sure was. Home on the Range is a fabulous story of hope, faith, and real-life family drama. Filled with heart-tugging emotion, delightfully sassy bantering, and a cowboy to die forwhats not to love? I loved it so much I quickly ordered the first book in the series. Well done, Ruth Logan Herne!"
