Betting on Hope

Betting on Hope is the first novel in Debra Clopton's latest series.  Each book in this series tells the story of one of the Monahan brothers who live and work on the Four Hearts ranch. 

First,  you meet Tru Monahan, a well-known cowboy, as he is being interviewed by Maggie Hope.  Maggie, the writer of an advice column for a Dallas newpaper, is filling in for her reporter friend who is sick.  This interview goes from bad to worse in the first few minutes and before Maggie knows it, Tru is making a bet with her that he can teach her to ride a horse! 

Maggie's boss wants to take advantage of this publicity and Maggie soon finds herself living at the ranch in Wishing Springs, learning how to get on a horse for the first time in her life.  This is an interesting tale as you learn the details of both Maggie and Tru's past.  They both carry secrets that they don't want to come to light!

You will not discover how they deal with these secrets and their feelings until the final pages of this book.  Hang on for the ride!

I received this book from Thomas Nelson in exchange for my unbiased review
