summer and sun and all things hot.

I am in Myrtle Beach this week with my mama for our annual mother/daughter girls trip. We haven't been to the beach in about a year and a half, and it was long, long overdue! Since it still feels like summer from where I'm sitting, I am going to review one of the sweetest novels of the summer titled Butternut Summer by Mary McNear.

Butternut Summer is the second installment in McNear's series (the first being Up at Butternut Lake  which you don't necessarily have to read to enjoy this novel). Caroline's ex-husband Jack who unceremoniously left her and her daughter, Daisy is back in Butternut Lake, hoping to rekindle the flame, claiming he is a changed man. Caroline has her doubts but she is a little caught up with financial issues and Daisy running around with a mechanic who has a seedy history (and in my opinion the best people do) to really give Jack and his changed man speech much thought.

Despite Caroline's attitude and inability to believe that people can change, It is so, so sweet watching Daisy and Will fall in love. Even watching Caroline and Jack figure out where they stand warms the heart. It's all rather predictable, but that's what I'm looking for in a breezy summer romance novel.
