"A Cowboy's Touch" by Denise Hunter

Abigail is a reporter who needs time off due to health problems, but she doesn't want to let her story go. Her mother and sister (her doctor) force her to take three months off and go Montana to visit her Aunt Lucy, maker of dolls. Montana holds a lot more for Abigail than her zany Aunt Lucy. Rest and relaxation seem to be the order of the day when she meets Maddy and Wade, but is that true? Maddy is an eleven year old girl whose mother died when she was five. Her father, Wade, is a very good looking cowboy hiding from something in Montana. Abigail becomes Maddy's summer nanny and the interesting sparks between Wade and Abigail begin to  fly. Then Abigail find out that there are problems with "Viewpoint," the magazine she writes for. Is there anything she can do to help? What really happened to Wade's wife? What is he hiding/running from? Will Abigail fall in love with him, or will she keep digging for a story until she "out's" him? Is Aunt Lucy just an eccentric old lady, or does she have Alzheimers?
"A Cowboy's Touch" has a lot to offer a reader. It has an interesting story to keep you reading and characters that seem like friends. This wonderful story will have individuals and groups alike discussing topics like: high blood pressure, learning to rest, letting God have control, "running," Alzheimer's Disease vs. quirkiness, and more.
