Counting on a Cowboy

The latest by Debra Clopton, Counting on a Cowboy, is a fun read.  You are introduced to Abby Knightly as she is driving down the road towards Wishing Springs, Texas.  As Abby is desperately trying to keep her eyes open and not fall asleep, she suddenly sees a huge cow and then a cowboy in the high beams of her car!

Abby crashes her car into a fence post, but she is thankful that all lives are safe.  When she meets the cowboy, Bo Monahan, she recognizes him from a TV special put on about him and his brother, Tru, by his soon-to-be sister-in-law, Maggie.  After Abby has a melt down at the sight of herself bleeding, Bo drives her to his ranch to get cleaned up.  They are both surprised to find a one-year-old child on his front porch!

As Abby begins to help Bo deal with the fact that he now has a son to raise, you quickly learn that Abby has issues of her own from the past.  And they are serious issues!  She cannot come to terms with the truth that she lost her husband and her pregnancy in a terrible car crash!

As Bo and Abby quickly are sensing feelings growing between them, will Bo be able to help Abby deal with her painful past and allow God to free her heart to love again!
