Betting on Hope by Debra Clopton ~ Review

Betting on Hope (Four of Hearts Ranch Romance #1)
Lucie's Review:

I loved this book from beginning to end, and I didn't want to put it down in between!

Maggie and Tru had perfect chemistry, and I felt the spark between them when they first met. Tru bets Maggie that he can teach anyone to ride a cutting horse, so Maggie takes him up on his bet, thinking that even he will find it challenging to teach a city girl to ride.

I really liked how Maggie had a column where she tries her best to give hope to her readers, and answers every single letter personally. And she does her best to encourage them and show them that they can try new things too!

I really liked the sides stories and characters, especially Pops who the brothers of Four Hearts Ranch, do their best to include in he work.

The interaction between Maggie and Tru was really well done and I loved how patient, and straightforward Tru was while teaching Maggie to ride.

Overall, this is an excellent book with a "true cowboy hero", filled with action, horses, great themes, and well developed characters. Highly recommend!

About the book:

Betting on Hope (Thomas Nelson, February 2015)

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 onthe 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.
