Back in the Saddle was a family story as much as it was a romance. We have a father who is coming to realize that he has just about alienated all three of his boys by his uncompromising ways. This first story is more of the prodigal son, Colt’s, story. After leaving the ranch for the prestige of New York City and the stock market, Colt has taken a hit on the stock market and his funds are tied up. Leaving him nothing to do but go back home where he can actually have a meal and a place to live. However, things have begun to change at the ranch with his father’s health in decline but his spirit in the right place and ready to make amends. Part of his father’s change of heart is due to his housekeeper, of two years, Angelina’s influence. As Colt and Angelina become unlikely acquaintances, Colt begins to fall in love with her. As Colt tries to find his place in the world, back at home on the ranch or back in the lifestyle of New York City, he finds out that Angelina has a few secrets of her own.
I really liked this family drama and learning about this family’s history and dynamics, not only with each other but the town as well. I look forward to reading more of this series especially where the other two brothers, Nick and Trent are concerned. I am always a sucker for a great cowboy story.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
