Debra Clopton in her new book “Counting On A Cowboy book coverCounting On A Cowboy” Book Two in the Four of Hearts Ranch Romance series published by Thomas Nelson brings us into the lives of Abby Knightly and Bo Monahan.

From the back cover:   After losing everything she held dear, Abby never wants to love again. But a certain cowboy may just spur her to wonder if love might be worth the risk.

Running from a past that haunts her, Abby Knightly is drawn to the cozy town of Wishing Springs, Texas. Maybe this small town could offer hope and healing and a future for Abby . . . if she’s brave enough to reach out and take it by the reins.

Bo Monahan isn’t interested in the new romantic destination his little town has become—or the women who might be looking at him like he’s their next Mr. Right. Between taking care of his Pops and his growing stirrup business, he isn’t looking for serious romantic commitments. But when the infant son he never knew about shows up at his doorstep, his world is turned upside down.

This confirmed bachelor might not think he needs a wife, but he sure needs help. Even Abby can see that, and despite her best efforts to keep her distance, she can’t help but be drawn to this new father-son duo. As Abby throws herself into helping Bo navigate fatherhood, hope sparks between them, revealing that maybe, just maybe, they can navigate their dark pasts and emerge together into a future as bright as the Texas sun itself.

Don’t you just enjoy the name of the town, Wishing Springs, Texas? I think that name just sets up the whole theme of this book. Abby is still mourning in her widowhood though her friends feel she should re-marry. That is why she comes to town, to escape their well-meaning wishes. It is an accident that Bo is in the middle of the road at night and that he causes Abby’s accident. Now he takes her around until the car is fixed. In the meantime Bo is an unexpected parent and he needs Abby to help him. That is when the sparks start to fly. Abby and Bo are a lot of fun. How do you deal with someone’s pain and then another’s need? Ms. Clopton does a great job of answering those questions without being preachy. Bo and Abby are wonderfully crafted characters that we draw very close to and root for them to succeed.   “Counting On A Cowboy” is a wonderful, interesting story that is a lot of fun that will keep you flipping pages.  I recommend this book highly and I do look forward to the next book in this series from this highly talented author.
