I don’t know about you but I love cowboys! In fact, I married one! When I saw the latest from Debra Clopton Counting on a Cowboy, I classified it as a must read ASAP!
I did have a hard time getting into this book and I’m not sure if it’s because I didn’t read the first book and missed much of the backstory and foundation of the characters or if it was something else. Either way, I did eventually get into it and grew fond of Abby and Bo’s love story.
I related to Abby and her tragic past as I’m currently experiencing grief with the loss of my father. That connected me to her as a character because I think grief is only something you understand once you’ve experienced it.
When Abby meets Bo in his hometown there is attraction yet conflict. I find this to be a little bit predictable since it usually is the case in love stories these days. It didn’t take away from their story much but I might have rolled my eyes a few times in certain situations.
While Counting on a Cowboy isn’t the first in this series, I probably will continue on with it because I enjoyed it enough to want to read more!
About the Book
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.
