    I like this story.  Abigail was a bright city girl who wrote for

    I like this story.  Abigail was a bright city girl who wrote for her mother's magazine as an investigative reporter.  She was writing an article about Wade that wasn't going to sit well with him.  This was an emotional book and I kept thinking, "Don't do it" while Abigail was writing her story.

    Wade was a very handsome ex-rodeo champion who was hiding from his past and wanted to stay away from women.  I loved the ending, especially Wade's insight. The characters were well developed and Wade's daughter, Maddy, was a likable young girl. 

    If you like Christian Romance, you will like A Cowboy's Touch.

    Clean But Not Very Entertaining

    Abigail Jones is a workaholic and her mother, concerned for her health, sends her on a three-month visiting trip to her great-aunt in Moose Creek, Montana. She expects a slow-paced idyllic vacation but gets more than she bargains for when she meets Wade Ryan, a rancher with a daughter and a mysterious past. When Wade's summer nanny pulls out from the job, Abigail steps in to take care of Maddy. Upon discovering a little of Wade's past, she goes all the way to unravel the "truth" before realizing that she is missing out on the real truth. In one scene in A Cowboy's Touch, Wade called Abigail a name not mentioned earlier in the book, Grace. I found that peculiar since Abigail's name does not have Grace in it. This peculiarity aside, the grammar and language in A Cowboy's Touch is faultless. Nevertheless, I felt that something was missing in it. I wish the plot was more entertaining and unique. It was just the usual thing. Maybe it's because I was looking for a more thrilling story. But there is no harm in this book. Among all the characters, Wade is my favorite character. I like the way his character personality is realistic. I didn't quite understand why he was sometimes portrayed as the "bad guy" in the story because how he behaved is how a real life person would! Overall, this book will make a good read for those who like clean cowboy romances (who doesn't?).

    Just Ok..

    Abigail Jones is a workaholic, her boss who is also her mother sends her away to spend the summer at Montana with her Aunt Lucy. Abigail needs a break from work even though she doesn't want one. Wade Ryan owns the ranch were her Aunt Lucy lives. When his summer nanny cancels last-minute, Abigail volunteers to take care of his eleven year old daughter Maddy. Yet Abigail has no idea what she has gotten herself into. She finds out that Wade is actually famous, a star that disappeared after his wife's death. When her mom's magazine Viewpoint is said to be shutting down, Abigail thinks she can save it if she writes an article on Wade, can she bring herself to expose the man she falls in love with?

    I guess I had greater expectations for this book, it was just okay for me. It was missing that spark, I kept reading and reading waiting for the good part to come, and honestly it never did. I knew exactly what was going to happen, no surprises, but it was a quick read, good time killer. If you like this book I recommend the movie "27 Dresses".
