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.

I WANT TO HOLD YOUR HAND by Marie Force is an exciting Contemporary Romance set in the mountains of Vermont. #2 in “A Mountain Green Romance” series, but can be read as a stand alone. See, “All You Need Is Love” and “To Know Her Is To Love Her” (novella). Make sure you read “All You Need is Love” (Will and Cameron’s story) before you read “To Know Her is To Love Her”(novella). Which you can find on the author’s website.

“I Want To Hold Your Hand” is a fast paced, compelling read from beginning to end. This is Hannah and Nolan’s story.

Hannah Abbott Guthrie, an Abbott sibling and one who lost her husband, Caleb,  in Iraq seven years ago, but she must move forward.  Enter…..Nolan Roberts, her lifelong friend. As their attraction blooms, Hannah, can’t help feeling she is betraying her late husband’s memory.

Curl up next to, “I Want To Hold Your Hand”, and bast in the warm feeling of the power of true love and hopefully, finding a HEA. Ms. Force, is a wonderful storyteller, who brings her characters to life one page after the other. Her storylines are heartwarming, difficult at times, but hold so much emotion with her romantic heroes and heroines. Love her stories of love, faith, and love everlasting. A wonderful read and one I would recommend to any readers who enjoy reading about the emotions of life, and the promise of an HEA! Received for an honest review from the publisher and Net Galley.
