Dynamic Uno here: I absolutely adore Debra Clopton's writing style. It's like she crawls inside my inner-most parts and seeks out what secret desires I have hiding in my heart and uses those emotions in writing her characters. The realistic emotions and reactions of those characters make me feel like I'm right beside them as they journey through their lives, which makes me root for them even more. I don't think I've read another author who has made me feel this large of an emotional connection in awhile. (Of course, it could just be that I really, really am enamored with cowboys and small towns, so I live vicariously through the characters, but that's a story for my therapist. LOL!)
It seems that the Monahan brothers and their small town of Wishing Springs are still a destination spot for female tourists trying to find themselves a "real" cowboy due to Maggie Hope's TV interview. (Counting on a Cowboy is book #2 in the Four of Hearts Ranch series. Book #1 is Betting on Hope. You can read my review here.) Book #2 focuses on Bo and Abby, a new resident of Wishing Springs who is trying to escape her painful past.
Forgiveness is a huge factor, and being able to forgive yourself for past mistakes is a major theme throughout this story. Bo and Abby get off on the wrong foot and the hits keep coming as even more complications arise in their lives. The crazy residents of Wishing Springs will have you laughing and crying as they try to "help" the two realize their feelings for each other.
Heartfelt, realistic, and a good, clean romance is what is offered in Ms. Clopton's second book of her Four of Hearts Ranch series. If you enjoy reading about cowboys and romance, then this is the book for you!
Let me know what you think and Happy Reading!
