Love Finds You in Mackinac Island
by Melanie Dobson

The storyline twists and turns with hidden identities, discoveries, and emotional upheavals.  Even more than that, blended into this darling story was a historical mystery that the author used to draw all of it into a neat, tidy bow.

The author wrote so beautifully that it was easy to visualize the island, the surroundings and also to be drawn into the emotional ups and downs and desperate situations of the characters.  Although the book is classified as a historical romance, I found the romance storyline to be rather light.  The more interesting storyline was the character development and the meetings of the two main characters at the lighthouse when they didn't know who the other person was.  The intrigue of the story was trying to figure out how the author was going to reveal the characters identities to each other and then how the emotional mess would be resolved.  This was a fun read!

More about Love Finds You in Mackinac Island, Michigan:

As the Gilded Age comes to a close, Elena Bissette's once-wealthy family has nearly lost its fortune. The Bissettes still own a home on fashionable Mackinac Island, where they will spend one last summer in the hope of introducing Elena to a wealthy suitor. But Elena is repulsed by the idea of marrying for money.

Quickly tiring of the extravagant balls, Elena spends most evenings escaping back into Mackinac's rugged forest. There she meets Chase, a handsome laborer who shares her love for the night sky. The two begin to meet in secret at an abandoned lighthouse, where they work together to solve a mystery buried in the pages of a tattered diary.

As Elena falls in love with Chase, her mother relentlessly contrives to introduce her to Chester Darrington, the island's most eligible bachelor. Marriage to the elusive millionaire would solve the Bissettes' financial woes, and Elena is torn between duty and love.
