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.
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.
The setting in this novel is so quaint it will make you want to pack your bags and head to Mackinac. Cara Putman does a fabulous job drawing out details, from fudge shops to bicycles, that make you feel like you're there. Her chapter endings leave you turning the page, for instance: "At the time, he'd thought they'd spend the rest of their lives shoulder to shoulder, taking on the world. Another dynamic duo. Poised to change the world. Then life happened. The world changed. And so did they."
This novel is quick and breezy, and will keep you guessing as to what's coming next with the full cast of characters she's assembled. A must read if you're interested in Mackinac!
