I Saw Her Standing There ~ Marie Force

We are adding a new feature in 2016. Thursdays will be reserved for reviewing books off of my To-Be-Read list; a little motivation to get me to dive into books that I have been missing. Hopefully, you guys will enjoy seeing these books too! Here is our first installment:

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?

Contains an exclusive Green Mountain short story!

When I pick up a Marie Force book I expect all of these elements to appear in a well written format. I Saw Her Standing There definitely delivered. The third installment of the Green Mountain series does a great job of telling Lucy and Colton's story while also catching loyal reader's up on previous story lines.
Having lived a long distance relationship, I felt like Ms. Force did an excellent job portraying the real conflicting emotions that both Lucy and Colton experienced as they tried to figure their relationship out.
My one complaint was Lucy. I liked Lucy, I really did, She was a hard worker, dedicated to her friends and family, and she genuinely cared about Colton. My complaint had to do with the fact that she almost refused to let love in and embrace what could be in favor of maintaining the status quo. It really felt like she was creating heartache where it didn't need to be, especially with the solution they worked out to the long distance issue.
I Saw Her Standing There is strong addition to the Green Mountain series that would appeal to current fans of the series and new readers alike.
