Description

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Mary McNear takes us home to Butternut Lake, where the townspeople are sure to look after anyone they consider their own. . ..

Mila Jones has fled the big city seeking a safe haven on the serene shores of Butternut Lake. Her position looking after Reid Ford is more than a job. It's a chance at a fresh start. And although her sullen patient does everything he can to make her quit, Mila refuses to give up on him.

But Mila isn't the only one needing refuge. Haunted by the car accident that nearly killed him, Reid has hidden himself away. He wants Mila to just leave him alone. And he wishes the whole town would stop looking after his well-being.

Against all odds, Mila slowly draws Reid out. Soon they form a tentative, yet increasingly deeper bond with each other, as well as becoming part of the day-to-day fabric of Butternut Lake itself. But the world has a way of intruding, even in such a serene place . . . and when Mila's violent husband forces his way back into her life, she and Reid are compelled to face down the past.

        "A delicious setting and a heroine to cheer for, Moonlight on Butternut Lake is my favorite kind of book, one that treads that pleasurable line between romance and women's fiction. Enjoy! " — Susan Elizabeth Phillips

        "Mary McNear takes the reader on an emotional journey with this story of second chances, starting over, and the healing power of love. A book to relax, enjoy and savor any time of year, but especially during the long, lazy days of summer." — Susan Wiggs

        "A heartwarming story of the power of love, family, and persistence against odds." — Booklist

        Mila Jones is warned ahead of time that she's the third home health aide for Reid Ford, but she's desperate. She's fleeing an abusive husband, and an isolated lake cabin in northern Minnesota is as far as she can go. Mila isn't prepared to feel so afraid and overwhelmed. Reid, a workaholic, is temporarily in a wheelchair following a car accident. He wasn't found for three days, and those days continue to haunt him every night in his dreams. He had emotional issues even before the accident--anger at the father who left him and his brother years earlier. McNear (Up at Butternut Lake) returns to familiar territory with a story of two lonely, injured people who discover that gentleness and communication will enable them to reach each other despite their histories. VERDICT McNear skillfully shows the strength and encouragement a woman needs to draw upon in order to leave her abuser. She successfully conveys the power an offender has over his victim, the manipulation, and the physical and mental wrongdoing that lead to fear. This solid story will find an audience among readers who enjoy novels involving social issues.--Lesa Holstine, Evansville Vanderburgh P.L., IN

        Mila Jones is so deprived of a normal, loving childhood that she's susceptible to the overtures of devoted Brandon Stewart. But Mila soon realizes that Brandon's love is obsessive and that she's in an abusive marriage. So she runs away from Minneapolis to Butternut Lake, hundreds of miles to the north, where she takes a job as health-care aide to Reid Ford, a churlish man still in pain from a near-fatal car accident, whose two previous aides didn't stay long. As Mila contends with her difficult patient, she worries about Brandon finding her, despite the care she took in leaving. In the third entry in her Butternut Lake series, McNear brings back Allie and Walker Ford (from Up at Butternut Lake, 2014), Reid's sister-in-law and brother, whose care for their family members contrasts sharply with Mila's own experiences. While her plot has a certain predictability, notably in the changing relationship between patient and caregiver, McNear keeps an aura of suspense to the climax. A heartwarming story of the power of love, family, and persistence against odds.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2015, American Library Association.)
