Betting on Hope, Christian Fiction by Debra Clopton a Review

bettingonhopeI enjoy a good country read and with this sweet story, I’m still smiling 🙂

I don’t know what it is about cowboy stories but I enjoy them and if you also do his may be up your alley. Small town characters. Down to earth guys, and a damsel in a bit of distress.

I just finished settling in with Betting on Hope (Thomas Nelson, February 2015) for Litfuse Book Reviews


Betting on Hope is a Contemporary Christian Romance novel set in  a small town in Texas.

Maggie Hope, the main character, is an advice columnist who agrees to stand in for her friend and interview small town hero Tru Monohan for an upcoming segment.

All seems to go wrong in the interview from Maggie’s point of view but for her bosses the chemistry between Maggie and True is a winner. They send her back to the small town to take on a bet and get the real scoop on Tru.

Tru has his own reasons for agreeing to the bet and the scoop. He’s been working long and hard to keep his grandfather’s ranch from going under and more exposure just may help him hold on to the family treasure.

Both Maggie and Tru have secrets they’re holding on to and a romance between them doesn’t fit with each other’s plans. As with all wonderful small town books there are a couple back stories thrown in for good measure and they’re just as good, or heart wrenching depending upon how you look at it.

I loved Betting on Hope and while I’m not a betting woman I’m pretty sure (or hopeful) that Debra has at least a couple of sequels in store for us.
