Abigail Jones is a workaholic and her mother, concerned for her health, sends her on a three-month visiting trip to her great-aunt in Moose Creek, Montana. She expects a slow-paced idyllic vacation but gets more than she bargains for when she meets Wade Ryan, a rancher with a daughter and a mysterious past. When Wade’s summer nanny pulls out from the job, Abigail steps in to take care of Maddy. Upon discovering a little of Wade’s past, she goes all the way to unravel the “truth” before realizing that she is missing out on the real truth.
In one scene in A Cowboy’s Touch, Wade called Abigail a name not mentioned earlier in the book, Grace. I found that peculiar since Abigail’s name does not have Grace in it. This peculiarity aside, the grammar and language in A Cowboy’s Touch is faultless. Nevertheless, I felt that something was missing in it. I wish the plot was more entertaining and unique. It was just the usual thing. Maybe it’s because I was looking for a more thrilling story. But there is no harm in this book. Among all the characters, Wade is my favorite character. I like the way his character personality is realistic. I didn’t quite understand why he was sometimes portrayed as the “bad guy” in the story because how he behaved is how a real life person would! Overall, this book will make a good read for those who like clean cowboy romances (who doesn’t?).
