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.
