Another Great Book by Denise Hunter
This is for 'A Cowboy's Touch' by Denise Hunter. It is A Big Sky Romance.
I had fallen in love with Denise Hunter's books when I read a 'Convenient Groom' and was so excited when I saw this book on the book list and beyond thrilled when I got a copy of it.
Once again Ms. Hunter does not disappoint. It certainly did not hurt that a ranch and horses are a key part of her story. I absolutely adore horses and could almost imagine myself riding along with Abigail and Maddy in the beautiful country of Montana.
I also have to add that I loved the name of the ranch, Stillwater Ranch. It sounds so peaceful there it makes you wish you could go and visit it.
This book is not only the story of Abigail, the investigative reporter, it is the story of a hurting father and his daughter.
The daughter is obviously in desperate need of a mother and it is nice to see Abigail be able to fulfill that role in whatever small way she can as her nanny.
You never know what someone might be carrying around with them. Whether it is guilt over a long ago situation or sadness over something you couldn't help.
These characters come alive as they struggle with everyday problems and trying to find balance in a crazy life. I'm sure many people can relate to the closed off feeling that Wade carries with him always. Once a deep hurt has reached someones very core it can practically take a miracle to pry it open again and the let light through.
I also have to commend Ms. Hunter on her background characters. They were just involved enough to keep the story interesting without being to large a focus and taking away from the main story point.
I especially like the quirkiness of Abigail's Aunt Lucy.
Abigail ends up stuck between a rock and a hard place like so many people do sometimes. Read this wonderful book for yourself and find out whether she makes the right decision in the end. :o)
While 'Convenient Groom' is still my favorite so far by Denise Hunter, I definitely will hang on to this book and look forward to reading her next one!
Happy Reading to you all!
