Although I've never been there, Michigan's Mackinac Island has always fascinated me as an automobile-free oasis. Cara Putman's A Wedding Transpires on Mackinac Island takes you to this vacation spot for romance and mystery.
For lawyer Alanna Stone, Mackinac is not a relaxing destination, but a painful reminder of the past that she's avoided for over a decade. When family illness forces her to return to Mackinac to run her mother's art gallery, Alanna dreads facing the memories of the fatal accident that ruined her brother's reputation and soured her on the locals. Even more, she dreads facing Jonathan Covington, her first love, and Jonathan isn't thrilled to see the woman who broke his heart in the cabin next door.
Alanna's return does more than trigger memories of first love - it unearths secrets that certain people want to remain buried.
A Wedding Transpires on Mackinac Island is a fun and exciting read, with well-drawn characters and a lovely setting that inspires both relaxation and mystery. As a lawyer herself, Cara Putman makes the criminal and legal aspects of the story intriguing and understandable. I highly recommend this novel.
