The Rancher’s Redemption – Return of the Blackwell Brothers – Book 3 – by Melinda Curtis


⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 – 3.5 stars

Rachel Thompson’s got her hands full as a single parent with her family’s ranch to save and trouble garnering respect from family members and a ranch hand who refers to her as “Little Lady.” Her dad is gone. Stress over their Double T ranch contributing to his demise, Rachel is determined to set the neighboring Blackwells straight over river water rights that they’re not entitled to, and which is wreaking financial havoc on the Double T. Ben, The Blackwell brother who’s the high-powered NY lawyer of the family, has been called in to defend their family over the water rights issue. Rachel, also a lawyer, feels out of her league being the small-town attorney that she is, going up against Ben, her childhood friend, now nemesis. To be honest, he’s a little irresistible, but Rachel has to do what she has to do to protect her family’s legacy. If only she knew about the secret that Ben is concealing, a truth that could change the future of the Double T, and their relationship.

The Rancher’s Redemption is Book 3 in the Return of the Blackwell Brothers series. I enjoyed Ben’s and Rachel’s story. One of my favorite scenes was Ben being chased by an Aberdeen Angus Bull named Ferdinand. Ben’s divided in his feelings about the ranch he grew up on and the life he’s made for himself in NYC. Watching his transformation throughout the course of the story was heartwarming. I’m looking forward to book 4.


For those of you who kept me in your thoughts and prayers, thank you so much! It touched my heart to know that you were thinking about me during my hiatus. 💕

  1. Glad you are feeling better Laurie <3. Take all the time you need. I think little breaks are good and I know I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed during this season.

  2. I think it’s funny that we both like the series, but you liked #2 more than I did and I liked #3 more than you. It just goes to show that authors should not get too wrapped up in reviewers’ ratings. I have written (long hand) my review for this one and I will hopefully post it tomorrow. I too loved the bull scene. I’m glad you are feeling better and working your way back into blogging. You have been missed!

    • So true, Linda. We all like different things for different reasons. I did enjoy The Rancher’s Redemption, but it was taking me a bit longer than usual to finish it. That’s an indication that my attention is waning. I’m looking forward to your review of it. 😃

      And thank you. It’s nice to be missed. 😉

    • Thanks, Angela. 🤗 I’m getting old and stuff’s hitting me all at once. 🙄 It’s a bit overwhelming, but I’m trying to take things one day at a time.
      I hope you enjoy the series. 😊


    • I’m sorry, Angela. I called you Jennifer by mistake. 🤦🏽‍♀️ My brain was still asleep when I responded. So sorry. I just corrected my reply with your name. Please forgive me. I’m all messed up.
