The title of A Cowboy’s Touch by Denise Hunter sounds like it would be an old-fashioned western. Instead, it is a contemporary romance set in Montana. Abigail, who is used to the big city of Chicago, is sent out to Montana to de-stress and check on her elderly great-aunt. Wade, the cowboy in the title, is a widower who has run from his past, and is caring for his young daughter, Maddy.
Through an unlikely set of coincidences, Abigail volunteers to serve as a nanny for Maddy over the summer. Anyone who has read Denise Hunter’s other books knows that this will not be a typical widower/nanny romance. Ultimately, Abigail must face a difficult ethical choice involving Wade and the family business.
This story does a fine job of illustrating how Christians and non-Christians wrestle with ethical issues in our daily lives. It is enjoyable and easy to read, yet thought-provoking and insightful. I highly recommend it.
