Book Launch Party with Marie Force
All You Need Is Love, Book 1, Green Mountain Series
June 28-29, 2014
Weston and Rockingham Stores of The Vermont Country Store
I love the Vermont Country Store catalog, ordered many times from it. So, I was excited when Marie Force came out with a series based on the family that owns and operates it. I read and loved All You Need Is Love and when she announced she was doing a Book Launch at the store in Vermont, I grabbed my Sister-in-Law and off on a road trip we went. We hit a few places mentioned in the book and of course talked with Marie and had books signed. Marie had a signing at both locations (Weston and Rockingham, VT) I caught up with Marie in Weston, but I also paid a visit to the Rockingham store.
We stayed in a cute little B&B in Weston called Colonial House Inn & Motel. The Inn is very charming and had reasonable rates. The breakfast there was delicious!
Below is my photo journal of the trip.

At the Rockingham location, there is a Kissing Bridge (Victorian Village Bridge – 1872) and a Grist Mill
We couldn’t find Colton on the mountain, so we tried at the Maple Museum.
Stopped at the Ben & Jerry’s Factory (Will took Cam there in All You Need is Love)
Beautiful Vermont Scenery
How the Green Mountain/Butler, VT series came about: (from Marie’s website)
“It all started with the NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams. New York Times bestselling author Marie Force watched a segment on the Vermont Country Store (VCS) and the Orton family who owns it and was immediately intrigued by the notion of a family running an old-fashioned country store. Marie visited and shopped at both store locations in Weston and Rockingham and the research for the Green Mountain Series set in Vermont had begun.
