In the seven years since her husband lost his life in Iraq, Hannah Abbott Guthrie has been unable to move on with her life. Lately, she has been thinking perhaps it is time, but she fears that becoming involved in a new relationship will be a betrayal of her husband’s memory. However, when her car breaks down while she is on her way to meet up with her girlfriends, everyone who could be of help to her seems to be busy or away, everyone except Nolan. Hannah fears that calling him will make him believe she wants to further his interest in her, but she has no choice.

Nolan, who had been Hannah’s husband’s best friend, has loved her for years. Realizing that she is still healing from her devastating loss, he has been giving her space. So when she calls for his help with her car, he is hopeful, but cautious. After he convinces her to go to dinner with him, they end the evening with a kiss which makes him even more determined to have her as his own. But he has a secret, one that may put an end to any future together.

After the kiss, Hannah finds herself falling for Nolan. But then she finds Caleb’s journal. Will it prevent her from getting on with her life and a possible future with Nolan, or provide her a chance for a new love?

Author Marie Force has penned another winning tale with her latest contemporary novel, I WANT TO HOLD YOUR HAND, the second book in her GREEN MOUNTAIN series. Caleb finally gets his chance to win the only woman he can imagine loving, although he does not believe he is worthy of her. I enjoy watching as he patiently wins her over and Hannah begins to get beyond her grief. The secondary characters add a great deal to the story, especially her matchmaking, but well meaning, relatives.

This beautiful, emotion-packed story, filled with love, loss, grief, healing, passion, realistic characters, romance and second chances will touch your heart and fill it with joy as Hannah and Caleb overcome obstacles to find love again. Although this book is the second in the series, it could be read as a standalone. This is a story you will want to read more than once. I am new to this author and this series, but I look forward to reading more about the people in Green Mountain, including the first book in the series, ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE as well as the upcoming novel, I SAW HER STANDING THERE, which is due to release in November 2014. Pick up a copy and discover Ms. Force’s world of GREEN MOUNTAIN for yourself!
