Series: Four of Hearts Ranch Romance #2
Synopsis: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.
What I thought of this book:
I thought this was a nice clean romance that makes for a good book to take to the beach or to cuddle up with on a rainy day. This book was just an enjoyable as the first book in the series. It was kind of neat that the letters that Maggie writes in her column and has exchanged with Abby is what drew her to this town when she need a new place to go to start over. Wishing Springs is such a quaint little town I can understand why Abby was drawn there.It was nice to watch the romance grow between Abby and Bo. I can't imagine how Bo must have felt finding out he had a son he did not know about and then to have to figure out how to raise him. He had so much on his plate between taking care of his ailing father and now a baby. The way the two of these characters played off each other was nice. I liked that there was just enough drama in the book that it made you wonder what next. This book is the second book in the series and although you can read it on its own and be just fine you will end up wanting to go back and read the first book.
