Format: Paperback
Abigail Jones pours her whole life into her job as an investigative reporter for her mom's magazine. When her mom begins to worry about Abigail's hypertension, she sends her on a 3 month vacation to Moose Creek, Montana to relax and check in on her elderly great aunt. Abigail ends up taking a summer job as a nanny for a rancher's 11-year-old daughter, Maddy. Abigail soon discovers that the rancher, Wade Ryan, is the long lost famous rodeo champion that fell off the radar soon after the suspicious death of his wife. When Abigail later learns through a phone call from her sister that her mom's magazine is about to go under, she decides to uncover Wade's secrets for the perfect article to save the magazine. Through the summer, Abigail and Wade start to have romantic feeling for each other, but neither one of them want to act on them for their own secret reasons.
This is one of those books that I found myself staying up way too late to read! I just couldn't put down! I love Montana, and Denise Hunter did a great job of taking me there through the wonderful details in her book. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good western romance!

I received this book free from the publisher through the booksneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

I must say that I agree w/ the review by Samantha (bookworm) that gave this book a 2 star, and I'm baffled by all the 4 and 5 stars. I wish I had read hers before downloading it. I finished it, but I never could figure out what the attraction was past the physical for the two main characters. Wade was distant for at least TWO-THIRDS of the book, maybe more. He is also described as a pretty inattentive father. Now I understand his issues were because of his first wife and her death, but I think it had been at least 5+ years since she had died, and he still apparently spends very little time w/ his daughter. Abigail even wants to confront him because of it.

The "relationship" between Wade and Abigail consisted of a few truck rides, one ride back on a horse w/ him after she fell, and a couple meals over awkward conversation. He never seemed funny at all, and yet, when Abigail decides how much she likes him, she comments to herself about his sense of humor. I thought, "what sense of humor?" And why do you like him, he has no personality! Although, really I'm not sure that Abigail's was that much better. Now that I think about it maybe they were perfect for each other! She apparently had a wonderful relationship w/ her dad who passed away when she was 15, and all the sudden she's having thoughts of how Wade reminds her of her dad. But it has sounded like Wade had been an absentee dad up to that point, spending little time w/ his daughter! So that comparison made no sense to me either!

I also couldn't believe that Abigail was still going to betray them w/ the story, but mostly the romance/relationship between Abigail and Wade seemed forced and made NO SENSE to me!!!! The book just did not flow well at all, but maybe my standards are too high!

I've read several books by Denise Hunter over the past few years, but "A Cowboy's Touch" is her best yet! I love a sweet story with a positive message, characters to care about, and settings I'm curious about. (I've always wanted to visit Montana!) That's what this book is. Abigail Jones is an investigative reporter from Chicago suffering from hypertension. Her concerned family sends her to visit an aunt in Moose Creek, Montana, so she can get some rest. But she soon meets a little girl whose bicycle has been stolen and finds herself working for a cowboy with a mysterious past.

This sounds like the recipe for a perfect romance, but Abigail and Wade are fallible humans who carry hurts from their pasts. As I read, I often found myself thinking, "No! No! No! Don't do that! You'll regret it; don't you see?" They didn't. So I kept reading, wondering how it could possibly ever turn out well. (Talk about hypertension!)

Doesn't that make for the best of stories? I'm happy to recommend this one and thank Thomas Nelson Publishers for sending it to me. And I'm hoping there's a sequel or two--for Dylan and/or Shay's and maybe even Marla's sake!

**2.5-3 stars**

A Cowboy's Touch is about Abigail and Wade. Abigail is an overstressed work-a-holic who was sent on three months vacation by her mother to visit her great Aunt. While there Abigail meets Wade's daughter and get's roped into being her nanny for the summer. But when she meets Wade for the first time she feels a spark of attraction that she hasn't felt in a long time. Wade was once a famous cowboy but after the tragedy and suspicion following his wife's death he moved himself and his daughter out of the spotlight and to Montana. Wade also finds himself unwillingly drawn to Abigail, she brings out feelings that he thought he had long since conquered.

Both Wade and Abigail suffer from hidden guilts and pasts. But when Abigail learns that her mother's magazine and all the jobs that go with it are about to be fired she decides that she is going to save the magazine. She has the perfect story expose where the famous cowboy disappeared too and to find out the mystery surrounding his wife's death. But things get more complicated for Abigail when her feelings start to get more involved and she questions whether to write the story or not. As things start to grow between the two both begin to heal old wounds but everything could change once Wade finds out about the story.

This is a Christian romance book which I didn't know when I began reading it. I have nothing against this genre but it came as a surprise. I loved Wade I thought he was an amazing character. He held so much guilt over what happened to his wife that he felt he couldn't be close to any other women including his daughter. He felt that they were all better off without him.
