Review: Peace in the Valley

Peace in the Valley by Ruth Logan Herne
Reviewed by: Pam Graber
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Multnomah
Publication Date: May 2, 2017

Trey Walker is a country music superstar. No one looking at him now would ever believe that 3-year-old Trey was pulled from the squalor of a drug house, rescued by his uncle, Sam Stafford, when his parents OD’d. Sam took him in at a time when his own life was in turmoil and made him son #3. Raised with Sam’s sons, Colt and Nick on the Double S Ranch, Trey knew he was fortunate. When he grew up and wanted to make music his life, all Sam saw was Trey’s parents’ addictions. Against Sam’s wishes, Trey headed for Nashville. His talent made him a star. His heart made him vulnerable.

When Sam needs help, Trey drops everything to head back to the Double S. Who knew the orphaned-nephew-turned-adopted-son would be Sam’s best match for a procedure that could save Sam’s life? Trey arrives at the Double S ready to do whatever is necessary and finds a kinder, gentler Sam who is trying to make up for the way he walked over everyone in his path to success. First on Sam’s agenda is putting Trey in charge of helping his neighbor, Lucy Carlton to rejuvenate her farm using Stafford money. Sam’s arrogance contributed to the crumbling of the property and he wants to pay the debt he feels he owes by rebuilding the place for her. Lucy doesn’t want to have anything to do with the Staffords and can’t believe they now want to help her. Can Trey convince her he’s more than just a beautiful voice and Sam really does want to apologize?

As Trey and Lucy work together, they slowly begin to open their hearts to one another. Can Trey ever trust another woman and accept her past which includes drugs – something he has avoided like the plague in recent years?

This third book in the Double S Ranch trilogy is, I think, the most emotional of the three. Trey’s story is gut-wrenching and so hard to imagine. I really loved the way the trilogy ends with Trey’s story.

Rated G: Nothing out of line in this one.
