The Plot (from Goodreads):

About to land her biggest deal yet, Leigh Henderson is on her game. She’s prepared for this, and nothing can get in her way. Except Rebecca Mayer, who’d sashayed in a few weeks ago with a former client list that would fill the entire hallway to Leigh’s office if she laid it out end to end. When her boss unexpectedly offers the deal to Rebecca and tells Leigh he’s letting her go, Leigh finds herself without a job.

But that’s the least of her worries. 

Her mother has some news that will change everything. She’s asked Leigh and her sister Meredith to meet her at the family cabin on Old Hickory Lake. Not only has Leigh been unable to pin her sister down in years, but going back to the cabin would mean dealing with the loss of her beloved grandmother and also chance running into her old flame Colton Harris, the one love she’s never been able to completely let go of.

Will confronting her grief, speaking to her estranged sister, and being forced to face the love she’d left behind help Leigh to learn who she really is? 

The Review: 

This was, surprisingly, my first Jenny Hale. I have at least one more of her books on my shelf, but haven’t picked it up yet.

Butterfly Sisters was a great one to start with. It was such an enjoyable read. I love reading books where a family needs to repair their relationships, and Butterfly Sisters certainly delivered on this front. Leigh’s relationships with her mother and sister was so well-developed, and I really enjoyed the backstory and figuring out why their family was so broken. I felt for Leigh as she struggled to deal with the death of the family member she was closest to.

The romance in this book took a back seat to the family relationships, but was still enjoyable. We actually don’t see much of Colton and Leigh’s relationship until the end. I liked that it wasn’t the focus, and that Leigh’s job satisfaction and family took the lead.

I loved the small-town setting. The cabin sounded so sweet, and I would love for my kids to have someplace meaningful like that someday.

I enjoyed my first Jenny Hale book, and am looking forward to seeing how her others compare!
