A Cowboy's Touch by Denise Hunter

Book Description:
Abigail is just in Moose Creek, Montana for the summer to temporarily care for her great aunt. But a tender-hearted cowboy beckons her to stay.

Abigail Jones intends to spend just one summer in middle-of-nowhere Montana with her Aunt Lucy. Time away from her job is just what Abigail needs to reassess her life. The slow pace has her breathing deeply for the first time in years. And the majestic scenery encourages her to get reacquainted with herself . . . and God.

What she didn't count on was the handsome widowed cowboy who owns the ranch where her aunt lives. When the rancher loses his daughter's nanny, Abigail decides to lend a hand for the summer.

Wade Ryan can't help being attracted to Abigail. But he's given up everything to protect his daughter, and he's not about to risk it all on a pretty face.

Under Abigail's care, Wade's home and daughter thrive. And with Wade's touch, Abigail's heart feels at home at last. But Abigail knows this elusive rancher is hiding something. Will her own secrets separate her from the cowboy who finally captured her heart?

My Thoughts:

I very much enjoyed this book. Abigail Jones is an investigative reporter who works for her mother’s magazine. Her mother and sister gang up on her and send her to Montana to ‘check up on’ her great-aunt and get some relaxation. Through a series of events, she becomes a nanny to Maddy, Wade Ryan’s daughter and moves into their house to watch over her. A strange comment leads her to investigate Wade’s true identity and that opens a whole new can of worms!
I absolutely adored Abby. She is headstrong, caring, and dedicated. Wade was a wonderful male character, the typical strong, silent cowboy type. The conflict between the two is somewhat predictable but still written well. Maddy is a wonderful and infectious character. The other support characters, including her great-aunt are very well written and well developed. You get to know and like all of them. Overall a great book.
I rate this book a 4/5. It was a wonderfully sweet, romantic read.
