Home on the Range

Home on the Range
Double S Ranch #2
Ruth Logan Herne
Nick stayed on the ranch when his brothers left for greener pastures. He dealt with his strong-willed father and raised his daughters alone when his wife abandoned them. But now the effects of that abandonment are starting to show themselves in his daughters. Nick will do anything for them, but isn't thrilled with the idea of a therapist. Especially one who lives in a hobbit home in the middle of nowhere. But Elsa seems to be reaching Cheyenne, his eldest, in a way he never could. Maybe things are beginning to look up for a change.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series and this one followed in the same path. The characters are so authentic and have depth. The people and descriptions jump off the page and create a wonderful scene for me to envision. I think the book could be read as a stand-alone, but with characters from the first book playing major roles in this one as well, I would recommend reading book one. You won't be disappointed. The author draws from the family's conflicts and ties in messages of forgiveness, patience, love, and family without coming across as preachy or overdone. I loved the flow of the plot and how the situations were resolved in a realistic manner. Can't wait to read the book about the third brother when it comes out.

I received a copy of this book from Blogging for Books. All thoughts expressed are my own.
