Counting on a Cowboy By Debra Clopton

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.

Nothing slow about this book.
I have loved this series A Four of Hearts Ranch Romance so far, Betting on Hope was fantastic as was Counting on a Cowboy. I never put the book down until the very last page and I was sad to see it end to say the least.
Such well rounded characters and the storyline was superb.
There was nothing left to the imagination  very well written descriptions of every detail. You could see it all playing out on each page.
I gave this book 5 stars and I can not wait for book three in this series Kissed by a Cowboy. It comes out next year, I  know way to long to have to wait.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
