Counting On a Cowboy by Debra Clopton

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.

I was so excited to get my hands on this book.  I read the first book in this series and really enjoyed it.  There is just something about cowboys...

This is the second book in this Four of Hearts Ranch series.  I don't think this book is dependent on the first book but I think you will enjoy it more if you read 
Betting on Hope (A Four of Hearts Ranch Romance Book 1) first.

Bo is a good man.  He's made a few mistakes but he is trying to be better, to do better and to be honorable.  He works hard and he is loyal to his family.  Those are attractive traits in any man.  I love when Bo decides he wants Abby and is determined to have her.  His all in attitude drives the book.

Abby is broken and trying to find herself.  She is forcing herself to be brave and live again.  I really enjoyed Abby's determination to take steps forward, even when sometimes she also took steps back.  She was a character I was rooting for from the very beginning.  

I just loved this book and I love this series!  It's one of my favorites.  The setting, the characters, the emotion- spot on.  Love!
