Review

"Charming and warm-hearted." (Popsugar)

"Hannah McKinnon's new book reminds readers that the right choice isn't always the logical one. Beautifully written, Mystic Summer blends the simple allure of past summers with the messiness of the present. It's the perfect summer read—any time of the year." (Amy E. Reichert, Author of Luck, Love & Lemon Pie )

“Hannah McKinnon’s The Lake Season is a pure delight. Iris Standish is such an appealing woman, handling an overload of family calamities with good sense and good will, not to mention a few really good times. It’s a bonus that the setting on Lake Hampstead is as enticing and refreshing as McKinnon’s voice.” (Nancy Thayer, New York Times bestselling author of Nantucket Sisters on THE LAKE SEASON)

“Two sisters, a glittering New England lake, and one desperate, last-chance summer set the stage for Hannah McKinnon’s emotionally affecting new novel, The Lake Season. The story features the complex Iris and her unpredictable sister Leah but its power extends well beyond the beautiful, heartbreaking bond between these two women. A memorable rumination on life, loss, and how to find a path home.” (Michelle Gable, nationally bestselling author of A Paris Apartment on THE LAKE SEASON)

“Family and secrets colliding at a lakeside wedding…[a] must-read.” (Cosmopolitan on THE LAKE SEASON)

“This is a beautiful tale of sisters, a heartfelt journey of truth and choices that will leave you deeply satisfied.” (Linda Francis Lee, bestselling author of The Glass Kitchen on THE LAKE SEASON)

“Hannah McKinnon's lyrical debut tells the story of a pair of very different sisters, both at a crossroads in life. McKinnon's great strength lies in her ability to reveal the many ways the two women wound - and ultimately heal - each other as only sisters can.” (Sarah Pekkanen, New York Times bestselling author on THE LAKE SEASON)

“Fans of Debbie Macomber and those looking for a great summer read will enjoy this first foray into adult fiction by McKinnon (Franny Parker; The Properties of Water)...the story features engaging character development and an on-again, off-again romance that will keep readers intrigued.” (Library Journal on THE LAKE SEASON)

“Charming and heartfelt! Hannah McKinnon's The Lake Season proves that you can go home again; you just can't control what you find when you get there.” (Wendy Wax, nationally bestselling author on THE LAKE SEASON)

“Seasons of change take us home to the places and the people who shelter us. Well-told, and in turns sweet and bare, The Lake Season offers a compelling tale of family secrets, letting go, and the unbreakable bonds of sisterhood.”

(Lisa Wingate, Nationally Bestselling Author on THE LAKE SEASON)

The Lake Season is one of those rare gems of a book that’s both impossible to put down and emotionally complex. Do yourself a favor and put The Lake Season on your summer reading list: you’ll love getting to know Iris Standish and her family and Hannah McKinnon’s writing is so beautifully evocative that even the most landlocked of readers will swear s/he can smell the fresh New England summer air.” (L. Alison Heller, author of The Never Never Sisters on THE LAKE SEASON)
