Of course, that kiss from Nolan might have had something to do with these new thoughts. Yet, in the back of her mind, Hannah feels as though she’s betraying her husband. Nolan has waited for Hannah for years. He was good friends with her husband and he never thought of her as anything more than a friend until well after Caleb died. He’s willing to be patient because Hannah is worth it. But, is Nolan worthy of Hannah? He has secrets that tells him he’s not.
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?
