Book Review and Kindle Fire Giveaway: Betting on Hope, by Debra Clopton #LitfuseReads

Betting on Hope
by Debra Clopton
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Thomas Nelson

About the book:
One sophisticated advice columnist. One rough-around-the-edges cowboy. And an entire small town rooting for love. The first book in Debra Clopton's Four of Hearts Ranch Romance series, Betting on Hope, will win your heart!

Advice columnist Maggie Hope never dreamed she'd be shaking hands with champion horse trainer Tru Monahan over a high-stakes bet, especially one that involves horses. And saddles. And everything else a city girl like Maggie feels uncomfortable around. But after filling in for a coworker and interviewing the handsome cowboy, she finds herself doing just that. Anything to save her advice column.

Despite Maggie's two left feet, Tru is bound and determined to bring out her inner cowgirl by teaching her to ride a cutting horse -- in Maggie's eyes, a wild beast trained to separate cattle from the rest of the herd. While her riding improves, the two grow closer, but Tru knows he can never let her into his heart -- for her own good.

In Wishing Springs, a community full of meddling -- yet well-meaning -- townsfolk, Maggie discovers a home far from what she's ever had and exactly what she's always longed for. But she's holding something back -- a secret with the power to destroy her reputation and any future she's ever hoped for with the cowboy she's come to love.

My thoughts:
I loved this book! It had everything you could want in a good romance: a handsome cowboy, plenty of humor, and powerful secrets that could destroy the romance. I laughed out loud at Maggie’s clutziness, as well as the gossipy ladies from the Cut Up and Roll Hair Salon. But this book wasn’t all lightness. There was Maggie’s secret past catching up with her, a teenager with a baby on the way, and a cowboy who may not be able to have the family he’d always dreamed of. Maggie had her silly moments, but she was also smart and stronger than she realized. And Tru made me want to reach into the pages and grab him for myself! Betting on Hope was entertaining and absorbing from beginning to end. I can’t wait to read more books by Debra Clopton!
