If these characters sound familiar, they should. Ms. Force is starting a new series with all her
wonderful characters from her Green Mountain Series. This book continues where the last one
ended. What is great though, is even if you’ve never read a single book of Ms. Force’s, you can
pick this one up and start reading. It brings you into the big loving families of the Abbotts and
the Colemans. They are cousins so it’s pretty much one family with lots of kids. There a couple
of things about the main characters, Grayson and Emma, that are a bit different. They are older.
While Emma is still in her 20’s, Grayson is in his mid 30’s. Both have lives and careers. Each
also has secrets that they don’t usually share. This makes them complex and yet they feel like
normal average people that you would meet anywhere. Ms. Force has the talent to make her
characters and places feel real. I also really like that the characters all interact with each other.
Family is big in everyone’s life and the Abbott family loves to hang out together. This is a
complex, multi-faceted, heart-warming story that everyone should love.
Emma is really enjoying visiting the Abbott’s over the Christmas holidays. Her daughter
Simone is just as thrilled. Simone has even picked up a man for her mother at the wedding they
attended. Grayson just moved back to Butler, VT and plans to start his own law office. He
doesn’t expect to fall in love within a few days of meeting Emma. Now, what? Emma’s going
back to New York and Grayson plans on staying in VT! Can they figure out a compromise?
Grayson Coleman has just moved home to Butler, Vermont after spending years working for a high-powered law firm in Boston. He’s looking for a simpler, less stressful existence in the sleepy little mountain town where he grew up with his siblings and Abbott cousins. Once the holidays are over, he plans to hang out a shingle and open a new general law practice. After helping to raise his seven younger siblings, the last thing on Grayson’s mind is a family of his own.
Emma Mulvaney is enjoying a break from her reality as a busy single mother in New York City while she and her adorable daughter, Simone, spend the holidays in Vermont with Emma's sister, Lucy, and Lucy’s future in-laws, the Abbotts. After meeting Abbott cousin Grayson Coleman and talking to him for hours, Emma is nervous and excited to have dinner alone with him after sharing her deepest, most personal secrets with him.
Will that first night be the start of something new for the jaded lawyer and the selfless single mom or will a holiday week flirtation turn into something much bigger than either of them ever expected?
Come back to Butler, Vermont for more of the charming Abbott family, their matchmaking father and grandfather and of course, Fred the Moose.
The indie-published Butler, Vermont Series is a continuation of Marie’s Green Mountain Series with all the things you loved best about that series—Fred the Moose, the boisterous Abbott family, the beautiful Vermont mountain landscape and the sexy romances that set your heart to racing.
