Review: A Cowboys Touch
Abigail was bored anyway, so no harm in helping out a neighbor. But her new charge is growing on her, to say nothing of her ruggedly handsome boss. Abigail may be mesmerized by Wade’s denim blue eyes, but can she really trust him? She is the truthseeker, after all, so shouldn’t she be able to stay objective and discover the truth about Wade? But what if she is missing the truth altogether? What if her past mistakes prevent her from finding the love of her future? Or, perhaps her relationship with Christ could give her the answers she is seeking. But “instead of pursuing Him, she’d been pursuing her career. Chasing story after story as if finding the next truth would somehow scratch an itch that never went away,” she thought
As the first book in the Big Sky Romance series, A Cowboy’s Touch is the story about a truthseeker who ends up discovering the real truth and a cowboy who learns to let go of his past. . This heartwarming romance is a story of love, pain and forgiveness. It has also been named a Women of Faith novel for 2011.
A Cowboy's Touch was a pretty good read with some great characters. My big pet peeves with Christian romance novels are the lack of Christian and too much romance. This book held a fairly good balance. Nothing makes me madder than a Christian novel that only calls itself Christian because of a paragraph or two of preaching that takes place at some point. A Cowboy's Touch does a good job of presenting some characters with a Christian worldview and some actual decision making based on faith. Overall I would recommend this book.
