**BT & Selfie Contest** All You Need Is Love ~ Green Mountain Series 1 ~ Marie Force

The family-run Green Mountain Country Store is cherished by locals as a reminder of simpler times. The Abbott children are determined to keep it that way—but their father has different plans…

When Cameron Murphy heads to Vermont to build a website for a new client, she imagines a more relaxing trip than she gets. After wrecking her car by colliding with the town moose, she meets the most handsome hero she’s ever seen. Unfortunately, her savior, Will Abbott, is also the son of her client—and he wants nothing to do with the new website or the city girl creating it.

For all Will cares, Cameron can march her fancy boots right out of town and out of his family’s business. But he can’t seem to get her out of his head. As his family’s dispute heats up, so does the chemistry between the two, leaving them wondering if simple is better after all—especially when it comes to matters of the heart.

In All You Need is Love, we are introduced to a new family. One thing I love about Marie Force's work, her family aspect. Each family is intertwined in the most beautiful of ways. Meet the Abbott Family. Lincoln & Molly own and run the Green Mountain Store, along with the help of most of their ten children. Yes TEN!! (I hope that means there's going to be ten books!) We have Hunter & Hannah (twins), Will (All You Need is Love), Ella, Charlotte, Wade, Colton, Lucas & Landon (twins), & finally Max. Can we say wow? Just imagine ten children. And we absolutely can not forget Fred. If you wanna know who Fred is, you gotta read the book.

Cameron Murphy is a web designer. Headed to Vermont to help Lincoln convince his kids that it's time to step out of their comfort zone and expand the store, in hopes of keeping the tradition alive for many, many more years. Cameron is desperate for this job, it's sink or swim time for her company. And Green Mountain can make it for her. It's quite comical to see Cam leave the big bad city and dive into the country where there's no cell service, renegade animals, and a small town where everyone knows everyone and every one's secrets.

Will is not happy to see this city girl that his dad has brought to town. He's not interested in expanding, but he's willing to listen to what she has to say. He's been burned by a city girl once, definitely doesn't want to go down that road again. But he can not deny her beauty or her sincerity. The more time Will spends with her, the more he wants her, despite history repeating itself. He knows she's leaving, he knows he's going to end up broken, but he can't deny her.

Marie Force, once again, has created an amazing world in the mountains of Vermont. Just reading one book, I am hooked on the Abbott Family and the town she's given us. Mrs. Force is an amazing storyteller. I just love everything of hers that lands in my hands. I hope that one day I can shake her hand and thank her personally for everything her books have brought to my life.

With more than 2.5 million books sold, Marie Force is the New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling, award-winning author of more than 30 contemporary romances.

She is also the author of the New York Times bestselling Fatal Series from Harlequin’s Carina Press, as well as the Treading Water Series and numerous stand-alone books. All You Need is Love, book 1 in her new Green Mountain Series from Berkley Sensation, was a New York Times and USA Today bestseller in February. The second book, I Want to Hold Your Hand, will be out in June, and the third book, I Saw Her Standing There, is coming in November. In 2014, Marie will have eight mass-market print releases—the first five Fatal Series books from Harlequin and the first three Green Mountain Series books from Berkley. While her husband was in the Navy, Marie lived in Spain, Maryland and Florida, and she is now settled in her home state of Rhode Island.
