I SAW HER STANDING THERE – Marie Force Green Mountain series, book 3
There’s a budding romance on Butler Mountain, but in the hornets nest known as the Abbott family, keeping a secret is no easy feat…
Colton Abbott and Lucy Mulvaney have a secret. Colton’s nosy siblings have begun to put the pieces together, but it’s not like Lucy to keep things from those closest to her—especially her best friend, Cameron, who recently moved to Vermont to live with her true love, Will. But Lucy isn’t about to tell Cam she’s having a fling…with Will’s brother. Flitting between New York and Vermont is exhausting, so Lucy is looking forward to a long weekend with Colton at the Abbott family lake house in Burlington. Too bad Will and Cameron have the same idea, and once Colton and Lucy are caught red-handed (and red-faced), will their clandestine romance lose its appeal or will their secret beginnings be the start of something lasting?
(Review from Nov 2014)
The third book in the Green Mountain series follows Colton Abbott and Lucy Mulvaney’s love story. Colton is the Abbott’s Mountain Man running the family syrup business. He lives alone up on the mountain with just the very basics. Lucy Mulvaney is a true city girl with everything she needs at her fingertips. They fall in love but have overwhelming obstacles to overcome – living 6 hours apart, his life & job is in Vermont, her family and business is in NY. Colton is determined to find a solution while Lucy holds firm to guarding her heart. Elmer and Lincoln scored another HEA with this latest matchmaking. Hannah & Nolan’s wedding is also featured. Make sure to read the bonus short story at the end of the book. It’s a hysterical camping adventure featuring Colton, Lucy, Will, and Cameron. While this isn’t my favorite book in the series, I still enjoyed it very much. Colton was the ultimate sexy mountain man who totally put his heart out there and was determined to make their relationship work. I guess my main problem, if problem is the right word, was Lucy. This was a character that was a lot of fun,a straight shooter, and owner of her own business. But when it came to her relationship with Colton she was unwilling to compromise til the end. Just something about her side of the story that didn’t do it for me. Still a very good book.
