Counting on a Cowboy by Debra Clopton

Counting on a Cowboy 
by Debra Clopton    
Contemporary Romance
A Four of Heart Ranch Romance book 2
Thomas Nelson 

After losing everything dear to her, Abby never wants to love again. But a certain cowboy spurs her to wonder if maybe love is worth the risk.
Running from a past that haunts her, Abby Knightly is drawn to the homey town of Wishing Springs, Texas, after her favorite advice columnist found love and a home there. Maybe this small town could offer hope and healing and a future for Abby too . . . if she's brave enough to reach out and take it.
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 unexpectedly the young child he never knew about appears on his doorstep and Bo's world is turned upside down.
This confirmed bachelor might not need a wife, but he sure needs a woman . . . and newcomer Abby Knightly is definitely a woman. When she comes to his rescue to help him navigate fatherhood, he slowly uncovers her own history. And suddenly Bo's thinking maybe, just maybe, together they can help each other work through the problems of the past to create a future of their own.

Here's my review of this enjoyable novel:

First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Debra Clopton and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Counting on a Cowboy" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.
“Counting on a Cowboy” is another wonderful novel by Debra Clopton.  Bo Monahan is tired of women coming to Wishing Springs to find a husband since his journalist sister-in-law put the town on the map.  He’s not looking for a relationship and is skeptical when women start hanging around.  Abby Knightly is looking for a fresh start – NOT a husband.  And after her thoughts and feelings were substantiated by an advice column, she takes a leap of faith to move to Wishing Springs.

This novel is full of laughter, tears, sweet friendships and frustrating moments.  Clopton’s characters are thick like flesh and blood people.  Her dialogue is believable.  Her circumstances are engaging and plausible, not feeling manipulated or forced.  The inner monologues of the characters are insightful.  I have always been able to enthusiastically recommend Debra Clopton’s novels.
