I love it when I come across the first book in a series and don’t have to wonder what I’ve missed in previous books. Back in the Saddle, by Ruth Logan Herne, is book one in the Double S Ranch series, and a pretty fast read.
The cover is cute, and I love second chance themes, but I have to say my attention waned in and out in a few places due to repetition.
I could picture the ranch and enjoyed getting to know most of the characters, but I feel the relationships could’ve been developed more—deeper.
Overall, I’m happy this is a clean read and carries a spiritual element throughout. I enjoyed the story, landscape, and the town’s dynamics, and look forward to continuing the series. Rating: 3 stars
