Colt Stafford has gambled and lost. Now he’s returning to his father’s ranch, to the life he left behind to pursue wealth and prestige. But his efforts to blend back into his former life is somewhat hindered by family and friends. A brother who remained by their father’s side, for one, is not overly happy. And the new house manager seems to be hiding something. Colt faces some challenges and has to decide whether or not he’s going to be able to stick it out.
Back in the Saddle was definitely a deviation from the norm. A modern western. And it really was a good read. It was nice to switch up my normal reading habits and find something that held my interest like a really good Regency mystery does. It was very much the modern-day Prodigal Son and there are no doubt quite a few readers who can relate to one character or another. My emotions ranged from empathy, sadness, joy, and humor; so thinking back on how the author’s talent with words and how she was able to evoke those emotions makes this a very good story.
