The family-run Green Mountain Country Store is cherished by locals as a reminder of simpler times. The Abbott children are determined to keep it that way - but their father has different plans….
When Cameron Murphy heads to Vermont to build a website for a new client, she imagines a more relaxing trip than she gets. After wrecking her car by colliding with the town moose, she meets the most handsome hero she’s ever seen. Unfortunately, her savior, Will Abbott, is also the son of her client - and he wants nothing to do with the new website or the city girl creating it.
For all Will cares, Cameron can march her fancy boots right out of town and out of his family’s business. But he can’t seem to get her out of his head. And as his family’s dispute heats up, so does the chemistry between the two, leaving them wondering if simple is better after all - especially when it comes to matters of the heart.

This was a fun and easy listen. The story was delightful and I found I was charmed by the characters. I'm looking forward to the next in the series.
I noticed some negative reviews on the narrator, but I've listened to a lot of books and found Kate Rudd to be one of the better narrators I've listened to. She reads a little fast, but she does a great job for both male and female and she puts personality into the characters without overdoing inflections.
Normally I really enjoy anything by Marie Force- but this not this time. I think this was because the narrator was not a good fit for this story. The main character (and all other female characters) came across as though they were still in high school. I found it (the performance) very annoying and ended up just wishing the story would end.
Because too much sex - toward the bottom.
I loved the small town, the characters and the family.
The book is well written. I loved the story. The large family, the small town, the country store all woven together fabulously. Unfortunately Marie Force writes in way more sex than is necessary. I wouldn't consider this erotica, just too much. I listened to the first two books in the series, I won't be reading any more. Too bad, I really fell in love with the characters. I would have liked to read the entire series she has planned. If you don't mind all the sex it's a great read.
What a joy for a family oriented, new love, etc. Katie Rudd is such a great narrator.....she actually makes good difference between male and female voices. Looking forward to more in the series. I have been a fan of the Fatal series so to have another series is great.
Not really, but since I work from home and listen to a lot of books, I went ahead and finished it. The story was too happy...I like to read some of these romance novels, but this was just too over the top with everyone being happy the entire time. It also seemed like she was rushing the book by trying to introduce so many characters.
I don't know, but I probably won't read another Marie Force for several months, and I won't ever read another book narrated by Kate Rudd.
She was incredibly monotone and at times seemed to be talking to fast and rushing through the book. She doesn't appear to have a broad range when it comes to the different voices.
The narrator? Yes. The author? Absolutely not.
Everyone is perfect. Everyone loves everyone. They're all saints. The only thing missing is a big rendition of Kumbaya. Well, since I couldn't make it through the whole audio book, that may be there as well.
Look, I love a good love story as much as the next romance fan, and I'm not a huge fan of angst, but come on! This book gave me a toothache!
Lots and lots of eye rolling.
I just found Marie Force and will be listening again. This is a good story--a little mushy at times but still good. I look forward to the next family member to hook up. I hope it comes soon. Love families that take care of and think of all the members of the family. Wish a lot more of us would.
Kate Rudd was great--found another narrator that I can listen to more than just one time.
I'm totally addicted to audio books! I listen when my eyes get too tired to read and when I am driving or just don't want to sit and read!
I love great audio books for when i'm driving, working around the house and when my eyes are just tired from reading too much. I tend to buy my favorite authors on audio, like Marie Force, so I can listen over and over.
I fell in love with the whole family but especially Will and Elmer.
I enjoy Kate Rudd. She makes the characters come to life with unique voice changes and mannerisms.
There were so many great moments in this story! I loved when Molly met Cam and she just accepted her like she new she needed a mother and family.
Marie makes every character so real, so unique but always united by love, friends and family.
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
I never read the print version, but I really enjoyed the audio edition.
The way the story developed from the first meeting through to the end, there was nothing at all not to like best about the story.
When Will sit down to talk with Car's father before the move to Vermont.
When she hit the moose!
I would try another of Marie Force depending on what it was. I have read a lot of her books already. I don't think having Kate Rudd narrate another book would be enjoyable for me so I will steer clear of those she narrates.
It seemed as if a lot of times when she was reading that it was monotone and trying to just get to the next sentence. Didn't get a sense of emotion from her reading. I cringed from the get go of the audio. I got to chapter 5 and had to quit. I couldn't endure anymore torture.
Couldn't get through enough of the story to really rate the story and characters.
