Publisher's Summary

For the Abbott siblings, Vermont 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.

    "Weak Followup"

    Indeed a pretty weak followup to the first selection in this series All You Need is Love. Far too often in this work the author uses a tired romance novel cliche; goes for the cheap laugh; or sticks to the formulaic rather than going for the more creative solution. The Meghan character in the first novel was a nice touch but her character appears to have become stuck in her role as a female version of Oscar the Grouch. The same is true of Nolan's Father, plus the situation with him seemed to wander absently into the mist. There was an occasional line of dialogue that worked, a few good scenes where the author 'put her back into it' so to speak. One particular very important scene that I won't identify so as not to spoil an important moment in the book was written in a subtle and understated way which contrasted nicely with much of the audio. There is a 45 minute novella at the end of book featuring Hannah and Nolan which I found silly and overly sentimental. Hannah was a much more sympathetic figure before she got a starring role. Let's hope book number three recovers some of what made book number one a good listen.

    "Excellent Listen!"

    I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. It has great character and story depth and a good balance of emotional engagement and sensuality. There are tears and joy as Hannah struggles to come to terms with the loss of her young husband in Iraq and move forward to find love again while still embracing his memory. As always, Christina Taister does a great job with narration.

    "Incredible, moving story!"
    Where does I Want to Hold Your Hand rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of I Want to Hold Your Hand?

    Too many to name just one- Homer death, Homer funeral, picking up Homer Jr, Hannah and Nolan's night after Homers death, Nolan's lunch with Hannah's Dad and grandfather, Hannah reading letter from Caleb, and on and on.....


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Hannah talking with and staying with Homer...


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried a lot, so many moving moments. Some laughs but a lot of emotion and tears, but good tears too.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read all of Marie Force's books and ALL are incredible. I highly recommend everything she has written and cannot wait for the next ones in all the series.

    "BORDERLINE GOOD!"

    The story line is fair/good. And although I like Christina Traister overall, I really hated Nolan's voice. It was so flat and mundane. Normally I can move through a series with no problem but after listening to this book, I had to take a break and move to another subject. Worth the credit? Overall, sure! I'm a Marie Force fan but some are better than others. This one is not in the better category.

    "Great Easy Fun Hot Romance"

    This is a very sweet and good story. Great Romance and well written.
    Narrator is ok but has a horrible Male Voice. I wish these Female Narrators wouldn't lower their voice to create a Male Character sound so weird. It takes away from the story. Christina Traister is ok as a narrator but ruins it with the male voice. So if you can get past that, you will enjoy this story. This is Book Two of the series and its as good as the first book.

    "Could Not Stand The Reader"

    The story was cute although it felt like it lacked a little substance. The person that performed the book however was really bad, she seemed to have a spit problem and was always choking it down, you could actually hear her salivate as she read...it took away from the story for me. If she continues to read the remaining books this will be the last one for me.

    "Loved it"

    Another home run for Marie Force. This book took me to the brink of happy and sad tears multiple times. It was a touching heartwarming story with plenty of humor and other characters to go around. And of course it wouldn't be a Green Mountain book without a visit from Fred the Moose.
