Publisher's Summary

After losing everything dear to her, Abby never wants to love again. But a certain cowboy spurs her to wonder if maybe love is worth the risk.

Running from a past that haunts her, Abby Knightly is drawn to the homey town of Wishing Springs, Texas, after her favorite advice columnist found love and a home there. Maybe this small town could offer hope and healing and a future for Abby too - if she's brave enough to reach out and take it.

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 unexpectedly the young child he never knew about appears on his doorstep and Bo's world is turned upside down.

This confirmed bachelor might not need a wife, but he sure needs a woman - and newcomer Abby Knightly is definitely a woman. When she comes to his rescue to help him navigate fatherhood, he slowly uncovers her own history. And suddenly Bo's thinking maybe together they can help each other work through the problems of the past to create a future of their own.

Cute

I enjoyed listening to this book. I did have a bit of a issue trying to figure out who was who , but they did keep saying so and so was speaking before or after, that helped. I am looking for the one before and the one after now.

weirdly religious and rather puritanical.

The writing isn't terrible, it's a bit simpering at times, but if you like the lily white Christian type of "romance" you might like it. It was decidedly not for me though!

Bad narration

The only reason I stuck with this is because other people rated it well. But for me, the narrator was... like watching a high school play where the kids don’t know how to act because they’ve never experienced the emotions they’re trying to portray, and there isn’t a good flow because they’re so nervous.
The story itself was cute.

Love this!

What a great way to celebrate family, traditions, and how World War II devastated so many. The narration was a perfect compliment to the humor, pain, and complexity of characters. Kudos!

Good listen, great narration. C
lean romance. I generally like a bit more spice but this was pretty enjoyable. I would recommend this book.

Detail are so important

I’m very detailed and there were a few things that really stuck out to me that were off I enjoyed the story line but the details like a one year old needing A baby swing just don’t work for me.

Christian romance with a heaping side of guilt

It's a decent story about a woman looking for big changes in her life after a drunk driver took her family. The characters are well developed but the guilt/ forgiveness loop keeps showing up. There's also guilt heaped on an unwed father, which isn't forgiven.
