A Cowboy's Touch by Denise Hunter

Book Description:  Wade's ranch home needs a woman's touch. Abigail's life needs a cowboy's touch.
Four years ago, rodeo celebrity Wade Ryan gave up his identity to protect his daughter. Now, settled on a ranch in Big Sky Country, he lives in obscurity, his heart guarded by a high, thick fence.

My Review:  Abigail Jones is on an "errand" for her mom to check on her great aunt, Lucy.  And to give Abigail a much needed rest.  
Abigail writes as a columnist for her mother's failing magazine, The Truthseeker.  In seeking truth Abigail also finds adventure and a love interest.
She also meets Maddy, an eleven-year-old in need of a nanny and Maddy's dad, Wade, who is in need of a woman's touch at his fenced-in-ranch somewhat true about his fenced-in-heart.  
Wade is a former World Rodeo champion turned quiet rancher.  School is about to dismiss for the summer and Wade needs a nanny for his sweet daughter, Maddy.  He also harbors a few secrets about his past.
Wade and Abigail meet  . . . sweet romance with July Fourth fireworks sparks between the two!  Somehow, in short order, Abigail goes from big-city columnist to small-town nanny, but her new charge is growing on her, to say nothing of her ruggedly handsome boss. Love blossoms between Abigail and Wade--despite her better judgment. 
Wade didn't ask questions of Abigail's past or present when he "hired" her since she was Lucy's great niece.  Now Abigail has "found" information about Wade that would make an award winning article for the magazine and probably make a name for Abigail herself!
But as secrets go . . . will writing an article of this nature bring Truth or will it bring death to Wade and Abigail's budding relationship?  And in seeking truth will Abigail find God the author of all Truth?  Will the secrets of the past separate the Truth of the present?
This is a clean romance where church attendance is mentioned and Abigail seeks and "sees" Truth but that's about all this read brings from the Christian sector.  It is a fast, fun read that will hold one's interest and attention.  A definite 4 star read for every one who enjoys a good.down.home.story laced with romance and good deeds.
