"a cowboy's touch" by denise hunter

When 28-year-old Abigail begins having stress-related health problems, she goes to Montana to spend the summer with her great-aunt Lucy. Soon, she meets cowboy Wade Ryan and his daughter Maddy. When Wade needs a new nanny for Maddy, Abigail steps in, and sparks between Wade and Abigail begin to fly. However, both Wade's secret and Abigail's job as an investigative journalist threaten to keep them apart.

I haven't yet met a Denise Hunter book I didn't like, and A Cowboy's Touch is no different. In fact, I devoured it in an evening! Guilt and the power of forgiveness are focuses of this novel, as both Wade and Abigail must learn to forgive themselves and each other. I found myself especially identifying with Abigail, and reading about her journey caused me to examine some aspects of my own life.

Also, Denise Hunter knows how to write romance! No cheesy or sickeningly sweet prose here--just a great story written in a way that makes the reader long for the two to get over their issues and fall in love. I highly recommend this book! (And I'm anxious for book two. Do we really have to wait until 2012?)
