Peasread: Back In The Saddle


Back in the Saddle is a book I almost didn't want to read. It's the title, the cover. It's a beautiful cover. It's just cliche in some ways. Handsome cowboy with his horse. Back in the Saddle. Prodigal son. Just sounded so predictable. However we had a lovely cold rainy day recently and I snuggled in by the fire and finished this book, in two days. I really enjoyed it! A great romance with some mystery and action.
Back in the Saddle is a prodigal son returns home story. Colt Stafford is the prodigal son who left the family ranch and found fortune in New York. All that comes crumbling down and he returns home to a sick father to work on the family ranch. While he is there will he be able to mend his relationships between his father and his brother whom he left behind? There's also a mystery about his father's housekeeper/cook Angelina. Colt can sense that she's hiding something. 
Ms. Herne introduces us to characters who are likable, but not annoyingly perfect. The characters are people you'd like to meet and get to know. The family dynamics and rebuilding of relationships within this family was fun to see unfold. The romance in this story is sweet. It's not rushed, you can sense the attraction between Colt and Angelina, but I didn't feel it was predictable. I can't wait to read the rest of this series to see what happens to the other characters. This is a Christian romance so it is a clean read but it is not what I could call preachy or evangelical.
