Grayson Coleman has just moved home to Butler, Vermont after spending years working for a high-powered law firm in Boston. He’s looking for a simpler, less stressful existence in the sleepy little mountain town where he grew up with his siblings and Abbott cousins. Once the holidays are over, he plans to hang out a shingle and open a new general law practice. After helping to raise his seven younger siblings, the last thing on Grayson’s mind is a family of his own.

Emma Mulvaney is enjoying a break from her reality as a busy single mother in New York City while she and her adorable daughter, Simone, spend the holidays in Vermont with Emma's sister, Lucy, and Lucy’s future in-laws, the Abbotts. After meeting Abbott cousin Grayson Coleman and talking to him for hours, Emma is nervous and excited to have dinner alone with him after sharing her deepest, most personal secrets with him.

Will that first night be the start of something new for the jaded lawyer and the selfless single mom or will a holiday week flirtation turn into something much bigger than either of them ever expected?

Come back to Butler, Vermont for more of the charming Abbott family, their matchmaking father and grandfather and of course, Fred the Moose.
Emma is used to being on her own with Simone, her 9 year old daughter. She has a network of support from friends and her father in New York, but a holiday in Vermont has her dreaming of a different sort of family. After a late night conversation with Grayson, Emma finds herself torn between the life she built and the life she can see. 

Grayson stepped in when his father abandoned the family, growing up fast to step into the role of man of the house and helping to raise his siblings. As the oldest sibling, he is used to taking care of those he loves. After years practicing law in Boston, he has decided to slow down his pace and return to Butler to open a practice and enjoy a little more down time.

Neither were expecting to connect so quickly with someone who lived hours away from home. Neither expected to find attraction for someone with vastly differing plans.

These two both have reasons to keep things as they are, pain and struggle from their pasts that have formed them into the adults they are. Grayson always thought his baby days were over, after having helped raised his siblings. Emma thought she had things under control on her own. Her routine with Simone left her little time for socializing with friends or dating, but she wouldn’t trade her time with Simone for a man.

I love Grayson with Simone. Anytime a man steps in to help a single mom and accepts and loves the child as much as and separately from the mother always melts my heart. In this case, it was made all the sweeter by Grayson's previous assertions that he was done raising kids.

Lincoln and Elmer, as usual, make plans and twist the situation to fit their matchmaking ways. Not as many crazy humorous situations as some of the other Green Mountain stories, but the same heartwarming family scenes, with the chaos of this huge family added. Each addition to this family is welcomed wholeheartedly by this huge family. The more the merrier when it comes to Butler and Green Mountain! While this is the first in the Butler, Vermont series, this is not the first time readers have entered the Abbot/Coleman world. Emma and Grayson’s story is the perfect jumping off point for the new series, and I look forward to more from this wild, small town, extended family.

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
