Melanie Dobson's "Mackinac Island' Kindle Fire Giveaway!

     Mackinac Island is a place that has interested me since I first heard of the movie Somewhere in Time. The idea of a place today that you can visit and still feel like you have stepped back in time has kept in on my list of places I'd like to visit sometime. Love Finds You in Mackinac Island, Michigan  takes you back to a time of distinctive classes in society and is woven around the respective roles played by each of those classes.

     The strongest character isn't one of the main ones, but her characteristics caused me a bit of introspection. The personalities of several characters are shared clearly as they interact in a way that makes them seem like actual people.

     I've read several books in this series, and I enjoy the way each of the authors weave less known historical facts into the novels. This book is my favorite of the series so far. I want to read more by this author now.

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.
