Betting on Hope

Debra Clopton. Thomas Nelson, $12.99 trade paper (320p) ISBN 978-1-4016-9049-6
Hope and faith come in many different forms in Clopton’s contemporary cowboy romance set in the small town of Wishing Springs, Tex. Maggie Hope is a newspaper advice columnist from the city who’s way out of her depth interviewing cowboy and champion quarter horse rider Tru Monahan in his small hometown. In an attempt to hide her nervousness during the televised piece, Maggie comes up with a bet—more of a dare, really: that Tru can not only teach this city girl how to ride, but he can have her good enough to compete in two months. Can the pair of them see past their own good intentions to find the truth lying right in front of them Amusing secondary characters and an intriguing side plot mix with humor to balance an occasionally clichéd plot that is light on faith.
