Product Description

Set in 1895, Maude's family has owned the Winds of Mackinac Inn for generations. When her mother dies, her father won’t let Maude run the inn without a husband. To prove she is capable of running an inn without help, she disguises herself as a maid and goes to work at the nearby famous Grand Hotel. Ben Steffans is a journalist for the Detroit Post, who also disguises himself as a wealthy industrialist to help him write a story about gold digging men chasing heiresses at the famous hotel.  He is hoping this will be the big story that advances his career at the paper. Ben and Maude will have a lot of explaining to do when the truth finally comes out.

Publisher's Description

Journey now to Mackinac Island where...
A Tangled Gilded Age Love Story Unfolds.

Although the Winds of Mackinac Inn has been in her mother’s family for generations, Maude Welling’s father refuses to let her run it without the guidance of a husband. So she seeks to prove her worth and independence by working incognito as a maid at the Grand Hotel.

Undercover journalist Ben Steffans, posing as a wealthy industrialist, pursues a story about impoverished men chasing heiresses at the famed hotel.  While undercover, he becomes attracted to an intriguing maid. By an act of heroism Ben endears himself to the closed-mouthed islanders—including Maude—and he digs deep for his story.

But when scandal threatens, will the growing love between Maude and Ben be scuttled when truths are revealed?

    Carrie Fancett Pagels once again pens a sweet historical romance set in the lush Michigan landscape. I've been following the My Heart Belongs In... series since the first book, each new location has been fun and fascinating, and I was excited when I saw that Mackinac Island was going to be featured. I've been fascinated by the place since I first read about their interesting rules on transportation...

    My Heart Belongs On Mackinac Island: Maude's Mooring is a fun and fairly quick read that brings just before the turn of the century Michigan to life. The story is populated with quirky characters who all have their own agendas, and secrets. Add in a realistic portrayal of the frictions that happen between visitors and residents in a town dependent on tourism, a hint of mystery, plenty of romance all around, and you get a light, pleasant, read.

    (I received a copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions are entirely my own.)

    This book by Carrie Fancett Pagels captured my imagination from the moment I started reading. The story centers around the Welling family and their extended family members who also live on the island.

    The book opens with Maude, the daughter of the family, eagerly anticipating the return of her fiance to the island. Unfortunately, he does not return from the island alone. Instead, he returns to the island with a surprise he is already married. As Maude races away, she literally runs into Ben Steffan, who is on the island undercover for the newspaper he works for in Detroit.

    This book contains intrigue, adventure, twists, turns and plot twists that definitely keep a persons interest. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.

    Oh my goodness! I felt like I was walking down the streets on Mackinac Island, smelling the horses, dodging the bikes as I took in the incredible views! Our heroine, Maude, is a determined, hardworking young lady who is hoping to take over the running of the Winds of Mackinac, an Inn that has been in her mother's family for generations. However, there seems to be some misunderstanding about that....

    An unrequited love, a newspaper reporter traveling incognito and housekeeping at the Grand Hotel are just some of the story lines woven together in masterful fashion by author, Carrie Fancet Pagels, who has outdone herself yet again.

    I enjoyed this book so much. The beautiful Mackinac Island makes the perfect setting for this endearing historical romance. The author makes full use of the unique geographical features on the island and its beautiful views. That includes the abundance of lilacs which fill the air with its fragrances, even today.

    The story begins the moment Ben Steffan lands on the island and literally runs smack into Maude Welling at the docks. She looked upset and perhaps a bit angry. She apologized as she hadn't seen him in front of her. Then she turned and rushed toward the village where he assumed she lived. He continued his stroll, to assume the persona of a wealthy industrialist, Freidrich Konig, he was trying to portray. He had a job to do. But when he looked up from the lovely brunette he had run into, he spotted two people he had known in Detroit. He hoped they didn't blow his cover.

    Maude continued down the street completely disoriented. Not only had she suffered the loss of her mother a year ago, but now she'd lost her fiance. She had expected Greyson's arrival so they could wed and run her family Inn together. But without notice, he arrived on the docks with his wife! How was she to run the inn herself? Will her father now fulfill his threat to sell it and move down state? She didn't want to leave the island. Could this day get any worse?

    The author writes a tender love story that is much more than a casual summer read. She includes a touch of mystery, some duplicity on both the characters' parts, not a few misunderstandings, heroic action, a bit of a twist and great character development. Both Ben and Maude have reached some crossroads in their lives. Both are attracted to each other, but have secrets that could stop their relationship developing before it even begins. How the author resolves this conflict is heart warming and life affirming.

    I especially enjoyed the touches of historical events where the men in the community must be prepared at a moment's notice to become a rescue team in case there is a shipwreck or collision in the icy waters surrounding the island. At one point, the author uses one such event as a means to draw Ben and Maude together in spite of their determination to back away. What a great story.
