Counting on Cowboys
by Debra Clopton
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.
MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
Abby Knightly’s life came to an end as she knew it when her husband was killed in an auto accident, and Abby feels responsible. Not being about to live with what happened, Abby decides to move to a little town she had read about in a column in a newspaper. Circumstances caused her to meet Bo, one of three brothers that owned a ranch in the small town of Wishing Springs, Texas .
This story took a different turn than the first book in this series. Bo’s story didn’t come across as well as Tru’s for me. Bo seemed less responsible, more reckless and the little surprise that ended up on his pops doorstep confirms that. It just happened that Abby was there at the right time, which was ok with Bo because he needed all the help he could get. Even though I did enjoy the story, a young lady showing up in a small town, meeting a guy that has sworn off ladies, and all of a sudden were thrown together and everything else that happened within a few weeks just wasn’t as believable as I would have liked. But then, that’s just me! All in all, I enjoyed the Monahan family again, and looking forward to reading book three! And by the way, Pops is just the sweetest old man, just adorable!
