Book Review - "A Cowboy's Touch"
I was so excited to receive Denise Hunter's latest book and I was not disappointed at all! "A Cowboy's Touch," A Big Sky Romance, is a beautiful story with a beautiful cover!
Abigail is struggling with health problems and guilt from her childhood. Upon recommendation from her doctor, who is also her sister, Abigail travels to the state of Montana for some rest and relaxation and to also check up on her great-aunt. Soon after arriving Abigail meets a young girl Maddy, and soon after becomes her nanny for the summer. Abigail cannot let her investigative reporter instincts rest as there is mystery surrounding her new employer, single dad Wade, and the death of his wife. After discovering who Wade actually is and learning the status of the magazine her mother owns and the one she works for, Abigail makes a decision that could save the magazine, but it will also interfere with the relationship that is growing between Wade and Abigail.
This is a wonderful romance story that also deals with finding one's way back to God and working through guilt from the past and forgiving one's self. The story moves along at a good pace and my interest was held from start to finish. The descriptions are very vivid and the contrasts between Abigail's two "homes" are great so that you will feel like you travel along with Abigial to Montana and Chicago. I highly recommend this novel!
*I received this book from Thomas Nelson in exchange for a honest review.
