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: Readers are invited back to A Four of Hearts ranch, this time focusing on Bo Monahan. Those who read the first book will be thrilled to see how life in Wishing Springs, Texas, since many of the characters from the first story have on going stories.
I like Bo and Abby, perhaps even more than Tru and Maggie, though they were lovely characters too. Debra Clopton does a fantastic job at balancing humor and loss, unexpected blessings and learning to forgive. This is a great, chick lit style read!
I received this book from Lit Fuse in exchange for my honest review.
