What Others are Saying About Mary McNear

“The first in a homey, feel-good series, McNear’s small-town tale offers lakeside views and likable characters. [...] McNear has admirably crafted people worth following.” —Kirkus Review

”Moonlight on Butternut Lake by Mary McNear is the next entry in the best-selling and emotionally rich Butternut Lake series, and it’s a nuanced story of healing and second chances.... Suffused with all the magic of firefly-lit summer nights....” —Bookpage


Up at Butternut Lake is...a heartwarming story of moving on from painful parts of one’s past. Well-written with realistic characters, this novel is one that you will find yourself wanting to finish in one sitting if you can. And readers who enjoy this story will rejoice at the thought of more novels in the future set in this charming little town. —-San Francisco Book Review

“THE SPACE BETWEEN SISTERS explores the complex relationship between sisters, their differences, their mirrored history, their love and support of one another. This triumphant story had me reading until the wee hours of the morning.” — Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author

”McNear’s charmingly light “Up at Butternut Lake” gives voice to this enduring Midwestern fantasy in easy-to-swallow prose. It would have been simple for McNear to tie up every plot line with a neat bow, but her writing proves more complex than mere vacation fluff. Still, if you’re packing your lakeside tote and hefting the canoe to the top of your vehicle, you might want to take along “Up at Butternut Lake.” The North Woods won’t be the same without some heartfelt reading to go along with the smell of a campfire and toasting marshmallows.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

”McNear skillfully shows the strength and encouragement a woman needs to draw upon....This solid story will find an audience among readers who enjoy novels involving social issues.” —Library Journal

”Moonlight on Butternut Lake by Mary McNear is the next entry in the best-selling and emotionally rich Butternut Lake series, and it’s a nuanced story of healing and second chances.... Suffused with all the magic of firefly-lit summer nights....” —Book page

“Butternut Lake is so beautifully rendered, you’ll wish it was real.” —Susan Wiggs, New York Times bestselling author

”...an exceptional and highly recommended addition to personal reading lists....” —Midwest Book Review
