Peace in the Valley: A Novel (Double S Ranch) by Ruth Logan Herne

Book Description:  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.
s 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?

My Thoughts:  I've read the other books in the Double S Ranch and enjoyed them immensely.  
All the books are about one of the brothers in the Stafford family (hence the Doubt S name),
Peace In the Valley is all about Trey Walker Stafford.  Trey loves the ranch but he loves music more...this is where he and his uncle Sam disagree.  Uncle Sam wants Trey to stay at the ranch but Trey returns to Washington where is a country music success.  And then Trey learns that he is the best match to help Sam in his life saving procedure.
Trey feels hopeless and empty but he heads home.
Then Sam instructs Trey to pay off their neighbor's Lucy Carlton's debt. Then Trey and Lucy begin talking and both Lucy and Trey learn to forgive.
Be sure to check out the other two Double S Ranch books:  Back In the Saddle and Home On the Range.  All of these stories are interesting.  Don't miss out on these grand reads!
