Review: Peace in the Valley by:Ruth Logan Herne

 Peace in the Valley (Double S Ranch, #3)
About the Book:
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 Review:
 in book 3 of the Double S Ranch series, we find ourselves following Trey and his journey. Trey is convinced that there is a medical procedure that he can take part in that will save his uncle's life. He is more than a little determined to help his father out any way he can and he is hoping he is the best match for this transplant. He owes it to Sam because Sam took over caring for him after his parents passing.

 One thing that Sam wants Trey to take care of for him is Lucy Carlton's farm. Through many twists and turns Trey and Lucy's paths cross more than once. And what was once a wall seems to be silently falling away. Trey and Lucy both have pasts that they seem to cling to and drown themselves in but fate has stepped in and there's no looking back now. Love seems to be on the horizon for the two of them. But will Trey survive this surgery long enough for either of them to see where this leads?
