I love, love, love Cara Putman's novels. She's one of those authors whose writing sucks you in from the first letter and keeps you there until the page turns. Then you feel as though your BFF moved away because the book is over and you have to wait months for the next Putman book to be released.

Fine. I'll stop gushing.

So this novel takes place on Mackinac Island - a place I have been and must say, Cara totally captured the essence that is the island. You will feel like you're really there. It's distinct culture is captivating and the pages capture it well.

The characters nab you right from the beginning. Alanna Stone has avoided coming home but her parent's plea wins and she returns to a place she fears will ruin her privacy and life. Jonathan Covington (how's that for a great surname?) may have been her first love, but he was also her first lesson in betrayal. (I stole that sentence from the back cover because it rocked!).

The book itself is not merely a romance and by no means a women's lit fiction. It's filled with intrigue and suspense. Murder -- yes -- murder. Love it! Well, I don't really love murder, but in a book ... okay ... you catch my drift. If the characters survive this book it might be a miracle, but of course, I won't tell because that would be considered a spoiler. I don't do spoilers.

Don't be fooled by the title. It's not a simplistic coffee table romance about a cutesy wedding on a fairy tale island. It's more like, a stolen kiss right before the gun goes off.

If you like a fun, contemporary, light mystery with a splash of suspense, then A WEDDING TRASPIRES ON MACKINAC ISLAND by CARA C. PUTMAN is a novel you'll want to be sure to read.

Attorney Alanna Stone has avoided Mackinac Island, and the man she loved for over a decade. When her mother summons her back to that very place, she goes but not without trepidation. The man she loved had betrayed her, but he wasn't the only reason she fled the Island. As luck would have it she bumps into Jonathan Covington shortly after arriving on Mackinac Island. Alanna soon finds herself in the mist of the very reason she stayed away from the Island for so long.

After Alanna left Mackinac Island, Jonathan lost interest in relationships. His heart was for one woman and one woman only...and she'd disappeared from his life long ago. Shocked to see Alanna return, he wonders if it's too late for them.

Alanna and Jonathan have past issues that must be resolve before they can open their hearts to one another again...but with God, all things are possible.

I loved Alanna and Jonathan's story. They managed to clear up an 11 year old mystery find each other again. I especially liked the cursory nod to Colleen Coble and this book reminds me a lot of her writing.

Alanna Stone left Mackinac Island after a tragic high school graduation party eleven years ago, vowing never to return. But when her father's health lands him longterm in a mainland hospital bed and her parents can't open their gallery on the Island in the spring, Alanna reluctantly agrees to take a brief respite from her work as an attorney to step in for a week or two until someone else can be hired or her mom can return. It's only because a difficult murder trial has sapped all her energy and she needs a break anyway.

She never guessed Jonathan Covington, a mainlander who summered on the Island, had taken up permanent residence. She'd never have believed she hadn't buried any and all feelings she'd every had for her teenage heart throb until she runs into him as she disembarks the ferry the very first day.

Alanna begins to seek the truth about the unfortunate incident long buried in the past. It doesn't take long for her to realize that someone on the Island doesn't want the truth to be told. Not only is she threatened, but so is Jonathan, and she's not as over him as she'd thought.

A Wedding Transpires on Mackinac Island is a contemporary romantic suspense novel that talks about coming home. After 11 years, none of us can really return home. We've changed and home has changed. Far from a deep dark thriller-type story, A Wedding Transpires had just enough suspense to keep the pages turning as I tried to figure out the secrets before Alanna and Jonathan did.

I liked this story by Cara C. Putman. It was set on Mackinac Island on Lake Huron, a beautiful setting for a romance. It was great to read and learn about "fudgies" based on the famous fudge made there. Fudgies are the visitors who flood this island for many events, and one is to buy the fudge. I liked hearing about and reading the details of Mackinac, especially the part where everybody travels on foot, bike, skateboard, or horse drawn carriage. How unique. Only an ambulance is permitted as a specialty vehicle.
The story involves a new attorney who comes back to the island to take care of her parent's store because of her dad's seriously medical condition that kept them on the mainland during his recuperation. She wanted to get back to her practice with the other attorneys, but family duty kept Allana faithful to help while her parents were away. And then there was Jonathan, the former boyfriend, who was delighted at her return. Seems she walked out on him eleven year prior. Lots of details from the part came up, and this. Time were brought to light.
I gave this a five star because the story was complete in details and had a happy ending.
