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.
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.
Delight in the journey and the struggle on the road to your dreams
Boy meets girl. Boy can't stand her; she can't stand him. Boy and girl become attracted to each other but still can't stand each other. Boy and girl begin to be able to get along but they both deny any possibility of more. Boy and girl are thrown together and their feelings for each other begin to grow though everyone else sees it the two of them still deny it emphatically. Boy and girl soon become aware of what they feel still they continue to deny the possibility of anything developing due to incompatibility. Boy and girl at last come to realize the extent of their feelings they curse fate and reluctantly acquiesce to reality. Boy and girl then of course both realize they can't live without each other and true love wins out yet again.
Cameron Murphy is a good leading lady and the fantastic Abbott are just made for a series. It's a good example of the top end of the genre though it got five stars because of Sasha not me. I still think it's really good; we recommend it.
I'm not sure who would enjoy this story...it was very immature. Lots of repeated words. Kate Rudd who narrated was not someone that I could listen to again. I didn't like the way the heroin seemed to whine~a lot. Plus, she seemed stupid to me. She tells someone she's trying to get work from that she was terrible in school...I don't know, it just wasn't very believable.
Not sure yet, but cant wait for my credit.
I just personally didnt like the sound of her voice. For someone else, she might be perfect.
Loved the Mother of 10 kids...although some of the things she said were not very "mother like."
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.
Addicted to Audible! I'm always listening to something.
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.
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.
Heart warning and so well told I felt like I was right there.
Looking forward to more stories about the Abbot family and Fred.
Makes me want to pack my things and move to Vermont.
