Review: I Want to Hold Your Hand by Marie Force



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.


Marie Force tells a beautiful love story with this lovely contemporary. After reading the description I was sure I would feel sorry for Hannah but I did not feel one ounce of pity for her, if fact I believe Hannah is one of the luckiest heroines I have ever read about. She not only found love early in life but after tragedy strikes she finds love again. Some of us have not been able to say they have experienced that kind of deep emotion but this heroine gets to experience not once but twice and with it all the joys and pains that come with it. Marie Force writes with such a depth that I felt as if I were living the story alongside Nolan, Hannah and her family. There is no over the top action, evil paranormal entities or kinky incidents, this is just a beautiful story that will make you laugh, make you cry and above all else make you believe in the power of love. I cannot wait to read the next story in this series and I know that you will feel the same way too if you pick up this book.
