{{Book Review}} Betting on Hope

Displaying 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 Review*
Debra Clopton's book "Betting On Hope" had me laughing, and even cry at times. Being a small town(err...villagae) girl made it so easy to fall in love with the small town of Wishing Springs, Tx. 

I instantly fell in love with Maggie Hope and Tru's story. It's not your typical love story. I won't say anymore about that because I don't want to ruin the book for anyone.  

I will say this though, this book is a real page turner. I didn't put it down until the last page.

I don't usually give books 5 stars unless I REALLY enjoyed them...but I gave this book 5 stars and I recommend it 100%!
