Book Review- I Want to Hold Your Hand by Marie Force

ABOUT THE BOOK
For the Abbott siblings, the Green Mountain state 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
  
REVIEW

The development of the story between Hannah and Nolan is done incredibly well.  I have come to expect great characters and story from Marie Force, but she outdoes herself this time.  I was crying uncontrollably twenty minutes into the book, which is a testament to the writing and how quickly I was able to connect with the characters.  A complicated love story between Hannah, who is a widow who isn't quite ready to move on and her husband’s close friend Nolan., this is also a story about family and friendship.

If you love Marie Force, read this.  If you've never read Marie Force, this is as good of a place as any to start!


OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!

MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
