BLOG TOUR - Till There Was You

Today is my day for the Blog Tour for Till There Was You by Marie Force.

Being an adult has its advantages... 

Lucas Abbott and his identical twin grew up sharing everything—including a reputation for funny, idiotic behavior. But now that Lucas is ready to shed that lovable-idiot image, grow up and have a real, adult relationship, the joke’s on him. He and his twin have fallen for the same woman. 

Crushed and hoping a few days on the slopes will work out his frustrations, he heads for Stowe, Vermont. All thought of fun and relaxation flies away as a car spins out in a snowstorm, and his firefighter/paramedic training kicks into high gear. 

Danielle Rowson is hoping to pick up the pieces and build a new life for herself and her daughter in Vermont. Winding up in a ditch in the middle of a blizzard isn’t part of the plan—and neither is the kind, sexy rescuer whose strong hands pull them to safety. 

Lucas has been a little kid, a big kid and now an adult—and he discovers that adulting has more than one advantage. Especially when it comes to sharing with Dani and Savannah the one thing that’s his and his alone: his love.

Lucas and Landon Abbott are identical twins who have share everything in life. That comes to a screeching halt when they both fall for the same woman. For his own sanity, and out of respect for Landon and his family, Lucas takes off for a ski trip that should get his mind off of the situation. When Lucas witnesses a car spinning around on the road, right in the middle of a snowstorm, he uses his instincts as a paramedic and a firefighter to help the driver.

Danielle Rowson is a single mother who lost the love of her life while she was pregnant. She drew into a tight shell, letting family take care of everything for her. She realized that the only way that she can truly survive was to strike out on her own with her daughter. This means leaving everything she'd ever known. She is headed to Stowe, Vermont, to follow through on some job opportunities and with hopes of finding a new home. While driving, the weather conditions force her car into a ditch.

When a handsome stranger comes to her rescue, Danielle is naturally wary. After all, she has her baby Savannah with her and their safety is paramount. He identifies himself, and assures her that he is trained in just this type of emergency, and offers to help them in several ways.

What a wonderful story! For starters, Danielle and Savannah are wonderful together, but it is how Lucas and Savannah bond that truly touched my heart. Also, Lucas's mother has ten children, and most now have significant others and are having their own children. Also, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the town moose. Not something I read of often, and this was a cute addition to the story. There is a fantastic sense of family while reading this book. It is a very warm read that was impossible to put down. I simply had to read this book in one sitting.

Till There Was You is pat of a long-running series, and is the fourth book in the Butler, Vermont  series. Although I hadn't read any of the previous titles, this book did well as a standalone. There are a lot of family members, and they have all had their stories, and some of them come through the pages of this book I do wish I knew about the extended Abbott family before reading this book, because I do so love the sense of continuity existing within the pages of a good series. I look forward to reading Landon's story soon.

Many thanks to HTJB, Inc. and to Inkslinger PR for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.
