For the Abbott siblings, the Green Mountain state has always been an idyllic place to call home. But it isn’t until they open themselves up to love that they’ll truly discover how fulfilling life can be…
Almost seven years after losing her husband in Iraq, Hannah Abbott Guthrie isn’t sure she’s ready—or able—to move on, but the attentions of a lifelong friend are making her think about it for the first time. The memory of the sweet kiss she shared with Nolan Roberts hasn’t strayed far from her thoughts, but she also fears that pursuing something with him would mean betraying her husband’s memory.
Nolan has loved Hannah for years, but he’d been giving her the space she needed to heal from her devastating loss. Now, when an opportunity arises to show her how he feels, Nolan can’t resist, but he knows earning her love will take more than a kiss. Somehow he has to prove to Hannah that finding love twice in a lifetime is possible—and well worth risking her heart.
Contemporary powerhouse Force sensitively introduces love to a war widow in the second Green Mountain contemporary (after All You Need Is Love). It's been seven years since Hannah Guthrie's charismatic husband, Caleb, died in Iraq. She is tentative about moving forward with her life, despite being aware that longtime friend Nolan Roberts is waiting for her. What will be the reactions from Caleb's parents, her family, and the townspeople of Butler, Vt. if she begins to live again? Nolan was close friends with Caleb, and his feelings for Hannah have grown from friendship to love as he's watched her bravely recover from her loss. When Nolan finally sees signs that Hannah is opening up to the idea of new relationships, he fights for her, despite not believing he is good enough for her. Hannah and Nolan's story starts with serious, sad issues, and their chemistry and relationship are genuine and passionate enough to pull them through.

Marie once again has reached all a person's emotions in this story of Nolan and Hannah. Love the way she showed Nolan's patience and kindness to Hannah. How he waited and the sweet things he did for her. Losing Homer had me in tears at work. IT was so well and sincerely written. Another great novel by Marie.
