Review: Back in the Saddle

Back in the Saddle by Ruth Logan Herne
Reviewed by: Pam Graber
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Multnomah
Publication Date: March 15, 2016

Nine years away from the Double S changed a lot of things for Colt Stafford. He made – and lost – his fortune on Wall Street so when his father, Sam, faces a health crisis, Colt decides to return to the ranch he left so long ago. Even though he’s the oldest Colt left the running of the ranch to his younger brother, Nick. He’s better with finances than cattle but he’s willing to pitch in wherever he’s needed. He knows he’s been away too long though, when, instead of killing the fatted calf for the return of the prodigal, he’s greeted at the door by the cocking of a shotgun. Who is this beautiful Latina who obviously knows how to use the shotgun she has pointed at his heart?

Angelina Morales, former Seattle detective, ran from the city when the job she loved got her father killed. Where better to hide her mother and son than in a remote cabin near Gray’s Glen, Washington? Taking the job as house manager at the Double S, Angie protects what’s hers and that includes Colt’s dad, Sam. As she gets to know Colt, she sees the man of honor he has become. As he and Nick work together to first keep the ranch going and second to repair the Stafford relationship with the town, Angie sees a man she could love – IF either of them were staying.

I have yet to read a Ruth Logan Herne book that was less than fantastic. Back in the Saddle is book 1 in the Double S Ranch trilogy and tells the story of oldest brother Colt Stafford. Colt left town to make his own fortune instead of staying on the ranch to ride his father’s coattails. Unfortunately, investment management is a risky business and one of Colt’s risks got his assets frozen. He has little recourse but to return to the ranch until the furor blows over. His return brings out family secrets, leaving Colt scrambling to rearrange the truth he thought he knew.

This was a wonderful beginning to the series. Romance readers will not be sorry they picked this one up!

Rated G: I didn’t see any issues here.
