Betting on Hope Review




22578263

About the Book

A bet gone wrong. A small town's meddling. And a cowboy intent on saving his ranch.

Maggie Hope is an advice columnist whose background leaves her with little advice to give . . . and it's beginning to show. When Maggie fills in at an interview with champion horse trainer Tru Monahan, the on-camera chemistry between them is undeniable. Maggie's bosses know this is the opportunity she's been looking for to launch her career--and their bank accounts. In order to save her column, Maggie takes Tru up on the bet that he can teach her to ride a quick-stepping cutting horse like any cowgirl, despite the fact that she has never been on a horse. And in the meantime, she can get the scoop on the man under the cowboy hat.

Tru has been on the competition circuit for longer than he'd like, but he knows it's the only way he can afford to keep the Four of Hearts Ranch that means so much to his ailing grandfather. So when his sponsors see the opportunity for Tru's fans to get to know the star on a more intimate level, he knows he must oblige. To his dismay, Maggie not only invades his small town of Wishing Springs, but she also invades his heart, and that is something he cannot let any woman do--for her own good.

In Wishing Springs, Maggie finds what she has always been looking for: a community and a home. But when her past catches up to her, it threatens everything, even the tender hope that this town holds all of her heart's desires.   (Goodreads)




My Review

Any story about cowboys I am all for reading. So of course I jumped at the opportunity to read this book! I have read one previous short story by Debra so I was excited to read this story. This is a fun story that starts with an awkward interview that ends in a rather amusing way. From this the story continues to tell about Maggie learning how to ride a horse and trying to get along with famous cowboy Tru. You can only imagine what happens from here it is rather predictable. There is a side story about a young teenage gal who is pregnant that I think I enjoyed reading about as well.
For a fun very light romance read this is a great book. At times I wish there was a little more depth but still enjoyable.

"I received this book from Litfuse for free in exchange for an honest review".
