Butternut Summer is the second book in the Butternut Lake trilogy.
Butternut Summer is the story of a mother and daughter, Caroline and Daisy, their closeness and conflict, and how one summer can upend all their expectations.
Caroline's life is turned upside down the moment her ex-husband, Jack, strides through the door of her coffee shop. He seems changed--stronger, steadier, and determined to make amends with Caroline and their daughter, Daisy. Is he really different, or is he the same irresistibly charming but irresponsible man he was when he left Butternut Lake eighteen years ago?
For Caroline's daughter, Daisy, the summer is filled with surprises. Home from college, she is reunited with the father she adores--but hardly knows--and swept away by her first true love. But Will isn't what her mother wants for her--all Caroline can see is that he's the kind of sexy "bad boy" Daisy should stay away from.
