#MMBBR Book Club Girl: Moonlight on Butternut Lake by Mary McNear

Our Pick:


From the author of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling Up at Butternut Lake comes the third novel in the Butternut Lake series—a dazzling story of two wounded souls seizing a second chance at life and love

On the run from her abusive husband, Mila Jones flees Minneapolis for the safety and serenity of Butternut Lake. Ready to forge a new life, Mila’s position as home health aide to Reid Ford is more than a job. It’s a chance at a fresh start. Though her sullen patient seems determined to make her quit, she refuses to give up on him.

Haunted by the car accident that nearly killed him, Reid retreats to his brother’s cabin on Butternut Lake and lashes out at anyone who tries to help. Reid wishes Mila would just go away. . .until he notices the strength, and the secrets, behind her sad, brown eyes.

Against all odds, Mila slowly draws Reid out. Soon they form a tentative, yet increasingly deeper, bond as Mila lowers her guard and begins to trust again, and Reid learns how to let this woman who has managed to crack through his protective shell into his life. While the seemingly endless days of summer unfold, Reid and Mila take the first steps to healing as they discover love can be more than just a dream.

Moonlight on Butternut Lake, which the third book in Mary McNear’s Butternut Lake Trilogy, was just as wonderful as the first two novels.  I so loved getting to know another group of wonderfully compelling and well fleshed out and very human characters.  This book is about the power of love, facing the past in order to obtain the future deserved and the power of getting a second chance.  There is love, drama and of course the beautiful; and magical setting of Butternut Lake.  
Another wonderful story that blends romance and women's fiction beautifully 4.5 stars
