Y'all just can't go wrong with kids and cowboys! Well, lots could go wrong but that's what keeps life interesting, right? This conclusion of the Double S Ranch series tugs the heartstrings and leaves readers with a warm and fuzzy feeling of satisfaction!

With his strong faith and dedication to the straight and narrow, Trey Stafford appears to have it all together. His personality is a great blend of hardworking cowboy and sweet country crooner. Trey is super adorable (and swoon-worthy) with his cowboy creed and sacrificial nature. He wins hearts big and small with ease! 

When it comes to being pushed around by men, no-nonsense, hardworking single mama Lucy Carlton is done! She is determined to stand on her own two feet and provide for her children with no one but the Good Lord to help. Lucy extends compassion and forgiveness to many but the wounds inflicted by the Stafford ranch run deep.

I wish these characters weren't fictional because I would love to pay them a visit and just shoot the breeze for a while. Herne has a knack for authentic characters and heartfelt storytelling and Peace in the Valley is no exception. This is another excellent book for my all time favorites list!

I requested the opportunity to read this book through the publisher. The opinions expressed are my own.
