Home on the Range: Double S Ranch, Book 2 by Ruth Logan Herne

home on the rangeHome  on the Range by Ruth Logan Herne is the second book in the Double S Ranch series and was released April 2017. I really enjoyed the first book and was looking forward to reading this one. Herne is an amazing romance writer! She does an outstanding job in creating a setting that you not only can visualize, but what to go there as well. The characters and plot line have been well thought out. Together they make the novel by favorite so far in the series. The book is very well paced and very believable. This would be a ranch and group of people who you would love to meet and spend time with.  I look forward to reading the next book in this series and other works from the author. **I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest and unbiased review** You can get your copy HERE.  **This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.**

Her school principal sister believes Elsa can guide the Stafford girls and that working with kids will draw Elsa out of her protective bubble. Summer on the Double S teems with life and adventure.
