:

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.

Loved it!
5 stars By Hannah, Jan 28 2016
Seriously incredible!! Loved it. Laughs, depth, incredible characters with beautiful stories, and a bunch of matchmakers. What's not to love! It was funny, sweet, amazing, and made me cry with how beautiful it was. 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!

watered-down Christianity
3 stars By Ibu Guru, Dec 02 2015
If you want a light read about people who don't read their Bibles often - this fits the bill.  Usually the last thing a "Christian" gives up is saying grace at meals.  Even that does not appear in this book.  Bo has given up immorality because having sex with lots of girls has lost its meaning, it is not "special" any more.  Well, I guess any excuse is helpful but the Bible puts a higher price on illicit sex eg. 1 Cor. 6:9 - 18 says that fornicators will not inherit the kingdom of God, sex outside of marriage is a sin against one's own body as well as God and the partner, a Christian's body is the home of the Holy Spirit and should not be united to an immoral person etc.  It sounds like Bo thinks he will marry the one he is in love with and that will give sex meaning for the rest of his life.  But can he maintain this "in love" feeling?  When he is 60 and his wife has lost her figure etc and is not mysterious any more, will he "fall in love" with someone else?
Another odd thing I noticed, the "baby" is a year old and still eating pureed baby food.  Is that normal for America?  Having 6 teeth usually, toddlers that age should be eating normal food.  I am surrounded by kids every day (150) aged 0 to 14 and there is no way the 1 year olds would passively wait to be spoon fed

Fun Romance
5 stars By Jacqui, Sep 01 2015
This is the second book in the Four of Hearts Ranch romance series. Having fallen in love with the brothers on the ranch from the first book in the series I eagerly awaited this one and wasn't disappointed. Debra Clopton has a gift of making you feel like you are actually there taking part in all the happenings that happen in the small town and making friends with the people. I loved walking the journey that Abby and Bo walk in this story with them. It is a surprising story, full of many different emotions. I was encouraged as they wrestled with God in their struggles. This book is a blend of humor and sadness and a really delightful one to read.

Solid but lacks spark
3 stars By Iola, Aug 15 2015
Counting on a Cowboy is the second book in Clopton's new Four of Hearts Ranch series. Like the first, it's a little formulaic, with most of the focus on the main couple but some slightly awkward scenes from the viewpoint of minor characters (mostly awkward because I was wondering why bit players were viewpoint characters). 

The other thing missing was the Christian content. Counting on a Cowboy is from Thomas Nelson, a major CBA publishing house, yet the Christian content is best described as sparse. Abby goes to church once; Bo not at all. Both characters make occasional references to God or prayer, but faith isn't a major theme for either character, despite forgiveness being a major issue for Abby. (In fact, God seems to be more important to the minor characters).

Overall, Counting on a Cowboy had potential, but felt as if it was trying to replicate a successful formula at the expense of originality. A solid read, but not something I'd re-read. 

Thanks to Thomas Nelson and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for providing a free ebook for review
