Counting on a Cowboy

Book description:  "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."

My review:  This book was a fun quick read.  It is the second in a series, but it can certainly stand-alone.  Abby and Bo both have serious issues they are dealing with, and Ms. Clopton handles these sensitive topics in a very appropriate way.  Not only did I enjoy the story of Abby and Bo, I also really loved the character Pebble.  Her story plays a minor role, but it is still very important.  This book is definitely fiction, but even though there was quite a bit in the book that was unrealistic, I still really enjoyed it. I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from the publisher through the Booklook Blogger Program in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
