Mary Larkin was hard at work as the office manager at the Green Mountain Country Store when Cameron Murphy brought her dad, Patrick, in to visit. That fateful first meeting, which took place in You’ll Be Mine, sets the stage for Mary and Patrick’s long-awaited romance in Can’t Buy Me Love!

Mary enjoys her predictable, satisfying life in Butler. If it’s a little lacking in excitement, well, that’s okay with her. But after meeting Patrick and getting to know him better at his daughter’s wedding, Mary is intrigued by the well-known, sexy billionaire businessman.

Patrick is equally intrigued. For the first time since he suddenly lost his wife thirty years ago, he has met a woman who makes him feel less lonely, and all he wants is more of his Sweet Mary from Vermont. Flirty phone calls become a weekend away together that takes his relationship with Mary to the next level.

But with six hours and two vastly different lives standing between them, can Mary and Patrick find happily ever after together? And after telling her father to keep his hands and everything else off Mary, will Cameron approve of her father’s new romance?

Mary Larkin has a settled life in Vermont. She loves working at the Green Mountain Country Store and the tight knit community that she lives in. Her calm world is set spinning when she meets Cam’s dad, Patrick Murphy. The sexy businessman leads a very different life than she is used to, but there is something about him that draws her in.
Patrick is also intrigued by the woman who works so closely with his daughter. He hasn’t had a serious relationship since his wife passed away 30 years ago, but feels something for the first time. They live such different lives though, it is hard to imagine what it would take for them to give a real relationship a try.

It was nice to read such mature characters. While many of the couples in this story have been more mature, Patrick and Mary are the oldest of the lot. They do not have the same challenges as any of the younger couples, and most of their plot tension comes from how to merge their two very established sets of habits and wants.

Patrick just wants to sweep Mary off her feet, but she isn’t used to all the attention and really just wants to keep things quiet. Keeping things quiet actually causes quite a bit of the tension between them, as their chemistry is perfection. Mary hasn’t had a lot of luck in the male department but Patrick is determined to change that. He is caring, doting (despite often being across the globe) and protective.

The timeline overlaps previous books a little bit, as Mary and Patrick meet just before Cam’s wedding, and in the background of Can’t Buy Me Love, the family is preparing for Hunter’s wedding. Other major events in the family are referenced, including some of Max’s baby drama, and Cam’s faint at her brother’s wedding.

This was a fun, quick read. Returning to Butler Mountain is always a joy and this was no exception. I am looking forward to Wade’s book, especially with the information in the epilogue that Linc and Elmer have discovered.
I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
