This review is for the book "Betting on Hope" by Debra Clopton. I have read several of Clopton's books before; mainly her Mule Hollow series. I enjoyed those, and this one really does not fall far from the same style as those books. This book is part of her Four of Hearts Ranch series.
In this book, Maggie Hope somehow gets suckered into a bet with a cowboy, Tru Monahan. She either has to complete the bet or lose her job. Unfortunately, Maggie dislikes all things horse-related, and that is exactly what the bet is zoning in on - her ability to ride horses. Of course as Tru helps Maggie learn how to ride they end up finding out they have feelings for one another. They also both have some secrets that need to come to light before they can really explore their feelings.
I think this is one of those light, easy-to-read books that has an ending that makes you feel good. So if you like that type of book you will enjoy this one.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
