The Story:
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.

My Thoughts:
Many moons ago I read a sweet little Love Inspired novel set in Mule Hollow, Texas. It was everything I had hoped for in a $4 romance. In fact, I think I might have even picked it up at the local Goodwill, so I doubt I even spent that much coin. I honestly can't remember what the story was about other than it made me smile and laugh at a few parts too. Debra Clopton's latest novel is a step up from that series, but still has that same light-hearted, fun feel. I do believe that Mule Hollow makes a bit of a cameo appearance in the story too! I was looking for something a little different since I've been reading and watching quite dramatic tales these past few weeks. Luckily, this story hit the spot. You gotta love a knock your socks off delicious hero and that's what you get in Betting On Hope. Tru Monahan is a true romance hero. Sorry, I couldn't resist that little pun. Tall, dark, and handsome indeed! That said, I didn't quite "get" the chemistry between Tru and our leading lady, Maggie, but Betting On Hope has a few fabulous characters that tease great stories to follow in the series. You can bet that all the Monahan men will make a western romance fan out of every reader! Wink, wink.
