From a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

Every summer on Butternut Lake the tourists arrive, the shops open, and the waves lap its tree-lined shores, just as they have for years. But this season everything changes for one mother and daughter who've always called the lake home. . . .

Caroline's life is turned upside down the moment her ex-husband, Jack, strides through the door of her coffee shop. He seems changed—stronger, steadier, and determined to make amends with Caroline and their daughter, Daisy. Is he really different, or is he the same irresistibly charming but irresponsible man he was when he left Butternut Lake eighteen years ago? Caroline, whose life is stuck on pause as her finances are going down the tubes, is tempted to let him back into her life . . . but would it be wise?

For Caroline's daughter, Daisy, the summer is filled with surprises. Home from college, she's reunited with the father she adores—but hardly knows—and swept away by her first true love. But Will isn't what her mother wants for her—all Caroline can see is that he's the kind of sexy "bad boy" Daisy should stay away from.

As the long, lazy days of summer pass, Daisy and Caroline come to realize that even if Butternut Lake doesn't change, life does. . . .

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved It! BUTTERNUT LAKE was such an uplifting, pleasant, breezy read. A great book for laying on the beach and soaking up the sun, or sitting in a comfy chair listening to rain pounding on the roof. You'll get lost in the lives of the characters on Butternut Lake and enjoy the banter and relationships that wind their way through from distrust to trust, from uncertainty to love, and from disaster to success. A beautiful story all round.

“This second book in the “Butternut Lake” trilogy, following Up at Butternut Lake, can also be read as a stand-alone and will appeal to fans of small-town contemporary romances such as those by Susan Wiggs and Debbie Macomber.”
