My review:

Love Finds You in Mackinac Island, Michigan by Melanie Dobson is a story of romance, mystery, suspense, secret identities and the idea that marrying for money should not be more important than marrying for love.  Elena Bissette is trapped.  It is 1884 and her father's factory just lost its fortune and Elena is expected to marry a rich bachelor, Chester Darrington, whom she will also be meeting on her last vacation to Mackinac Island if her mother can arrange it.  Elena hates to disappoint her mother who is set on her marrying a wealthy man, but she would rather slip away from the stuffy life and live in a small place with someone she loved.  On one of her secret nightly escapes to a hidden lighthouse, Elena meets Chase and with their common interests in stars and things of God's nature, they fall in love.  But later she meets him at the Grand Hotel Ball under their real identities and each believes the other has deceived them.  Will Chase and Elena be able to put aside society barriers and misconceptions to discover true love?

This story was complete and I didn't want it to end.  In fact, I would love a sequel to it!  This story was fascinating with rich history, a beautiful love story and lots of humor.  Elena is disgusted with the gossiping women her mother's wants her to associate with.  She wants to be free and on a previous trip to Mackinac she is led to a lighthouse with a mystery of it's own.  Even though there were many characters in this story it was easy to keep track of all of them and how they each contributed to the story.  Elena and Chase don't meet right away and I love all the little hints that are given to each of them before they actually meet.  One time Chase told a friend that he loved looking at stars (not a typical pastime for a woman) and this friend said "I know someone who loves looking at stars!"  And before Chase could find out who that was, the conversation was interrupted.  There were many scenes like this.  I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more of Melanie's work.
