Book Review - A Cowboy's Touch by Denise Hunter

Abigail is a workaholic always on the search for the next story. She works for her mother's magazine. But when she is starting to have some health concerns, her mom thinks it's time for her to have a break.

So Abigail is sent off to Moose Creek, Montana for the summer. She has a great aunt down there who her mom is very worried about. So basically she is sent there to check up on her aunt and get rest in the process. And while she is there, Abigail does start to calm down and meets a few people. It's more peaceful then her hectic Chicago life. And it's there that she starts to seek out God more.

But she didn't really think that while in Moose Creek a nanny job would suddenly fall into her lap. She began to watch a little girl whose father was a widower and at times was super grouchy. He has a whole other story that is somewhat baffling too which the reporter in Abigail seeks to find out.

But while she was living in the house and taking care of the girl, she found much more than just a job. The rancher (the girl's father) wasn't who she expected. And she definitely didn't expect to melt under his touch... but will they fall in love? Only time will tell the stories of the people in this book.

Not having read any books by this author, it was tough to know what to expect. But boy oh boy, was this a great novel. It only left me wanting more, wishing there was another chapter or two. Denise does a great job with her writing and makes you really feel like you're there in the story. And the descriptions of the characters painted such an amazing picture. It could easily be made into a movie.

That said, please do check out A Cowboy’s Touch published by Thomas Nelson. Search for it at your local bookstore!
