Counting on a Cowboy is the second book in the Four of Hearts Ranch series. It can stand alone if you have not read book one, Betting on Hope, but I would really recommend reading both of these stories because they are just so good!
There are so many “tug at the heartstrings” moments in Bo and Abby’s story. Abby is a woman who has experienced crushing loss. She is doing her best to climb out of it, but is weighted down with guilt. I thought that her reactions were just so realistic. From the way she sees herself to the way she deals with her landlord, Rand, it is clear that Abby is a wounded soul. I loved reading about her and watching her slowly come to life again.
Bo was also a great main character. As a strong male lead, he needed something to knock him to his knees. The author found the perfect thing…a baby that Bo didn’t know existed. I believe that the author handled this aspect very tastefully and I really enjoyed watching the change that occurred in Bo.
All of the characters were so fun to read about in this series of books. Both Betting on Hope and Counting on a Cowboy have great romances that develop despite the seemingly insurmountable odds that the main characters in these stories face. I am really looking forward to reading book three when it is released.

Counting on a Cowboy (Thomas Nelson, August 2015)
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.
