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.
As 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?
I've been following along though all three books and have been loving this trilogy and loving each book. I managed to read the books out of order but I made sure to get ahold of each and just felt the need to see what each brother gone through and seeing how they found themselves a life partner. If you like a good clean christian romance novels then I really believe that this trilogy will appeal to you.
When it came to this story it was about Trey who is a well known singer who is back in his home town because his adoptive father needs a transplant and he might be just the person to help him. Trey had a bad history when it comes to drugs, his parents, his late wife and its just something hes not willing to deal with again. Treys father got a lot to atone for and Trey wants to help out. When Trey ends up in a accident causes the lovely single mother who isn't a fan of Treys family he is willing to do everything and more to help this beautiful women out.
Just like the others I found plenty of things to love about this book. I loved getting to know more about the characters in this book. I loved getting the brief appearances of the previous books characters seeing a bit of what they are doing even if they aren't the main character. I loving getting to konw more about Trey and why he was a bit stand offish about having a relationship, especially with Lucy at this point of time. I loving seeing to see his point of view when its came to the whole issues of helping his father and seeing outside opinions on what he was going to do for his father, some trying to sway his opinions and hes conflicted to doing whats right. Overall this was a really enjoyable book I really enjoyed reading it.
I can't even choose between which book is my favorite between this seires all the books were different and so dang enjoyable that I'd recommend you readers to check out all three if you can.
