Peace in the Valley By Ruth Logan Herne

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?

Book three in the  Double S Ranch series. Cowboys! Oh yeah that's what we all want to read about.
As with the first two books in this series. You are not going to be able to put this book down. I was a little bit disappointed that this one was a mass market paperback (that means the little books) instead of the big paperback which is what I like to read.
But the story did not disappoint and the end of the book has Recipes form Lucy's Kitchen how about that.
I am a fan of Herne's and I can't wait to see what is next from her. 
I gave this book 4 stars and I HIGLY recommend this whole series.
I received  this book from the publisher for review. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
