Review: On Moonberry Lake by Holly Varni


Cora Matthews has long wondered why her mother stopped taking her to visit her grandparents' lodge in the small Northwoods Minnesota town of Moonberry Lake. Now, after burying her mother and breaking off her engagement just two weeks before her wedding, Cora has a chance to find out. Once there, she is stunned to learn that the old lodge is her inheritance--with a surprising condition attached. Maybe some time to regroup on the shores of a beautiful lake is just what Cora needs to figure out what's next for her.

But Cora's days on the lake are anything but relaxing. The only thing that's a bigger mess than her own life is the dilapidated building she's living in. Add a cantankerous handywoman, an angry neighbor, and an elderly woman who spends all her time talking to the "residents" in the cemetery and Cora's not sure she can stick it out. But if she can, she may find a love she never expected--from the most unexpected people imaginable. This homespun tale of new friendships, sweet romance, and ordinary miracles will have you wishing you could spend a summer (or a lifetime) on Moonberry Lake.

My Review: 

I found On Moonberry Lake to be a great debut for upcoming author, Holly Varni. I thought it was a sweet and heartwarming tale, I found it was easy to connect with the characters and relate with them. I did not find it to be predictable and I wanted to keep reading to see what would happen until the end. It was great spending some time away in a beautiful and relaxing setting. I loved it.

I am giving On Moonberry Lake five stars. I believe fans of clean fiction. I would love to see what other books Holly Varni has in store for her readers in the future.

I received a paperback copy of Holly Varni’s On Moonberry Lake from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
