:

A bet gone wrong. A small town's meddling. And a cowboy intent on saving his ranch.

Maggie Hope is an advice columnist whose background leaves her with little advice to give ... and it's beginning to show. When Maggie fills in at an interview with champion horse trainer Tru Monahan, the on-camera chemistry between them is undeniable. Maggie's bosses know this is the opportunity she's been looking for to launch her career?and their bank accounts. In order to save her column, Maggie takes Tru up on the bet that he can teach her to ride a quick-stepping cutting horse like any cowgirl, despite the fact that she has never been on a horse. And in the meantime, she can get the scoop on the man under the cowboy hat.

Tru has been on the competition circuit for longer than he?d like, but he knows it's the only way he can afford to keep the Four of Hearts Ranch that means so much to his ailing grandfather. So when his sponsors see the opportunity for Tru's fans to get to know the star on a more intimate level, he knows he must oblige. To his dismay, Maggie not only invades his small town of Wishing Springs, but she also invades his heart, and that is something he cannot let any woman do?for her own good.

In Wishing Springs, Maggie finds what she has always been looking for: a community and a home. But when her past catches up to her, it threatens everything, even the tender hope that this town holds all of her heart's desires.

Beautiful story of hope
5 stars By Hannah, Nov 24 2015
Love, love, loved this book! It was hilarious, sweet, amazing, and made me cry with how beautiful it was as the characters discovered both God and each other. I fell in love with the characters from the first page and couldn't get enough of their story. I love the way this author doesn't shy away from tough heart issues (adoption, alcoholism, etc) but takes them full on, even if the answers are tough to accept at times. It's real life. Cannot wait to read more by this author!

Small Town Romance
4 stars By Jacqui, Jun 01 2015
I was eager to read this new novel of Debra Clopton after thoroughly enjoying all her other books. The story didn't disappoint. Like her previous series there are all the fun characters and elements that go with small town life. I loved the main characters, Maggie and Tru, and the plot she chose for them.  I finished the story satisfied with the conclusion but wanting to spend more time in the little country town and find out what happens in the lives of Tru's two brothers and some of the other characters. I am looking forward to the next books in the series.

A bet and a romance
5 stars By Iola, Apr 06 2015
Betting on Hope is the first book in Debra Clopton's new Four Hearts Ranch series. The setting, Wishing Springs, Texas, is a small ranching community that seems to have a lot in common with the nearby Mule Hollow (setting of twenty stories). It's a small friendly community with plenty of single men, and a cast of quirky minor characters, including the identical twins (one of whom is Mayor), and the town busybodies who run the beauty salon. (This was probably the one weakness in Wishing on Hope: there was a little too much time spent establishing these minor characters when I was more interested in reading about Maggie or Jenna).

Yes, the romance between Tru and Maggie was predictable (this is a romance novel: what did you expect), but it was enjoyable nonetheless. What was less predictable was Maggie's developing relationship with the people of Wishing Springs, especially Jenna. 

Overall, Betting on Hope is a fun short romance, perfect for summer days or winter nights. It's Christian fiction (in that main characters mention God-once each-but it's not at all preachy, despite having times where it could have been).
