Love Finds You in Mackinac Island by Melanie Dobson

About the Book:

She must choose between her family’s fortune and her heart’s desire.

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, she 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 hidden 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.

My Review:

 Love Finds You in Mackinac Island is a historical romance set in the gilded age in Michigan and has as much charm as the little island itself. This book really made me want to see the island and stay there for away. Just sounds like such a fun and beautiful little island to getaway to with a good book. While this is a fun beach read type of book personally it lacked the depth that other novels have. It is great for that person looking for a simple book to get their mind of of the world and does have a certain charm about it. This is the second book I have read from Melanie Dobson, Refuge of Crescent Hill being the other, and I know that I will look forward to reading more from her in the future.
