Book Review and Giveaway - Counting on a Cowboy by Debra Clopton

A new tale of romance, family, and taking risks—don't miss Debra Clopton's Counting on a Cowboy! 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. 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.

My Review

Counting on a Cowboy is the story of Abby and Bo.  Abby moves to a small town after tragically losing her husband and baby.  By chance, she meets Bo, a cowboy who lives with his brother and aging grandfather.  Just as they meet and get aquainted, Bo discovers that he has a one year old son -- who arrives unexpectedly on his doorstep.  

This novel explores how two broken people find strength within themselves and through a relationship in order to heal and move forward with their lives.

The love story was so winning.  Abby and Bo are very warm, sympathetic characters, and I found myself rooting for them.  I love the way their relationship unfolded slowly in the book.

I also loved the small town setting with the quirky townspeople and the cozy atmosphere where everyone knew their neighbors.  Bo's family is also wonderful - especially his lovable grandfather, Pops.  There even is a cute Basset Hound!

This is the second novel in the Four of Hearts Ranch trilogy.  I did not read the first book, but this novel worked well as a standalone.  (That said, I would like to go back and catch up!)

I recommend this book for fans of inspirational fiction, contemporary romance, and women's fiction.  Anyone who loves a warm, cozy, small town setting will also enjoy this read.
