Abby Knightly is determined to move on from the place she’s been stuck for the past two year. After a column in answer tone of her letters, Maggie Hope (now Monahan) encourages her to do just that—move forward. So when Abby sells her house, packs up her belongings, and moves to Wishing Springs, Texas, her family and friends are concerned she has lost her mind. But Abby can’t stay in the place where she lost so much, more than she’s ever willing to lose again. On her way into Wishing Springs, Abby swerves to miss a cow and is immersed in the world of the Four of Hearts Ranch and Bo Monahan.
Bo is instantly attracted to this stranger but has she come to town because of Maggie’s article about the handsome, available cowboys? When he learns he has a year old son he’d never been told about, his world becomes chaotic. Bo has enough to do with caring for his ailing Pops and his custom stirrup business. He recruits Abby to help him care for the baby.
Most of the townsfolk from Betting on Hope make an appearance in the second installment of the Four of Hearts Romance series. The nosy women from the salon, Doobie and Dooney (the twins), Pebble, Rand, and of course, Tru and Hope, Jarrod, and Pops and Solomon. The chemistry between Abby and Bo is immediate. Both of them feel lit but can Abby let go of her fear of losing someone in order to risk her heart on love?
