Can’t Buy Me Love

Marie Force

CAN’T BUY ME LOVE is the second book in the Butler, Vermont series. Mary Larkin is the office manager at the Abbott’s family Green Mountain Country Store and she has been a part of the Abbott family for many many years. She has been seeing Cameron’s dad, Patrick, on the down low for a short time, but he wants to take it public and let everyone know. Mary has her doubts because she is an office worker and Patrick is a very very rich and powerful man. Mary isn’t sure if his feelings for her are for real as he could have any woman in the world. Mary sees herself as someone totally out of his league, but she sure feels the sparks that fly between them when they are together.

Mary lives in Vermont and Patrick in New York City so when Patrick starts to pursue her more aggressively, Mary is torn. She isn’t sure she is ready to give up her friends, her job, her life, for a man? Patrick tries to convince Mary that his feelings for her are real and that he is in it for the long haul. He also has to let Cameron know how he feels about Mary, but at the same time he is worried sick about her. Cameron is pregnant and her grandmother as well as her mother both died in childbirth and Patrick knows he waited too long to let Cameron know about it.

It’s always great to revisit all my old friends in Green Mountain, and CAN’T BUY ME LOVE is the perfect way to spend the afternoon. You will get wonderful updates on all the residents and the Abbott family. It was nice to see the whole Abbott family rally around Mary and Patrick and give them the support they needed. While they want Marie to be happy, they constantly warn her to be careful but to trust her heart.

CAN’T BUY ME LOVE will have you laughing and crying at the same time. I was cheering for Mary and Patrick to get it all together and finally be happy. How does Marie Force keep making me fall in love with this family over and over again? It’s her perfect writing and descriptions that pull at your heart and never let you go. I absolutely love this Butler, Vermont series. She has a way of pulling you right in from the very first page and never letting you go until the very end. She grabs your heart and makes you fall in love with all of her characters. The Abbott siblings along with a constantly trouble stirring dad and grandfather, make this a series worth reading. I always feel like I’m visiting with of friends while reading these wonderful stories.


Have a great day everyone and thanks for reading!!




  1. I didn’t sign up to read this one. I think I’ve given up on Marie Force for now. I feel like she spends too much time catching up with the old characters and not enough time on the new. Your review was great, though. And I’m happy you enjoyed this one!
