    It's summer, and after ten years away and the death of her husband, Allie Beckett has returned to her family's cabin beside tranquil Butternut Lake. She has promised her five-year-old son, Wyatt, that they will be happy there. But Allie is seized with doubts. Has she done the right thing uprooting her little boy from the only home he's ever known? Allie and her son are embraced by the townsfolk, and her reunions with old acquaintances are joyous ones. And then there are newcomers like Walker Ford, who mostly keeps to himself - until he takes a shine to Wyatt…and to Allie.

    Preparing for her final year of college, Daisy is crazy busy now that she's back at Butternut Lake. She's helping her mother, Caroline, run their coffee shop and trying to build a relationship with the absentee father who's suddenly reappeared. She never expected to fall in love with Will, the bad boy from high school who works at the local garage. With every passing day she and Will grow closer to each other . . . and closer to the day they will have to say goodbye.

    Small town romance

    Similar to a Robyn Carr novel. Predictable but a cute story for easy listening. Start with the first book in the series, Up at 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.

    Moonlight on Butternut Lake

    I liked that, as a fan of the series, I finally get to know more about Reid. His relationship with Mila were so enjoyable to watch unfold.
