Workaholic Abigal Jones aka The Truth Seeker is a succesful columnist and is forced to take a well needed hiatas from her job. Her boss whom is her mother is concerned with her daughters health. She banishes her to her Aunt's home in Montana not only for her health but to check on her aunt because they fear that her aunt is slipping into dementia. But the kicker is her mother insists that Abigal is to stay there for three months.
The author, of course, has added a handsome widowed rancher, Wade Ryan owner of the Stillwater Ranch, as her aunt's neighbor. To top it off he has a darling daughter, Maddy that is in dire need of a women's infulence in her young life.
Lies and deception are strong in this story on both Abigal and Wade's side which creates any chance at friendship between the two, much less love.
I did not want to put this book down. Definitely one of my favorites.
I highly recommend A Cowboy's Touch.
I gladly give it a 5 out of 5.
I received a free ebook copy of this book for review from NetGalley. This is my honest opinion and was in no way compensated for that opinion.
I just finished this boook! Wow what a great read. I was so moved by the way the writer keep you hanging on and wondering what will transpire between Wade and Abigail. It had perfect background information on branding and cowboy work.
After reading The Inconvenient Groom by Denise Hunter a few months ago, I was anticipating the release of A Cowboy's Touch, the first in her new "Big Sky" series. My expectations for a light and enjoyable read were fulfilled, and I even surprised myself by reading the novel in practically one sitting!
The plot of A Cowboy's Touch moves along at a steady pace, and in many ways it reminded me of a Hallmark movie. While Wade has a past that threatens their relationship, Abigail has secrets of her own. I was very sympathetic to Wade and his daughter Maddy; and at times, I became very exasperated by Abigail's actions. But any great story needs to have its share of tension and characters who make their share of mistakes. Ultimately, it is is a story of forgiveness and finding new beginnings.
I look forward to Denise Hunter's next novel in this series, The Accidental Bride, which is scheduled to be released in January 2012.
