This the the 3rd book I have read under the My Heart Belongs series. At first I was confused by all the characters and their relationship to each other on Mackinac Island. I dint help when there is assumed names involved too. As I read and got into the story it began to sort itself out. I enjoyed the story line between father daughter and your son and the father's idea that his mother died from overwork and he did not ant the same for this daughter. She wants to take over the family inn. I enjoyed the twists and turns and how the characters' faith in God helps them fund solutions.
I have received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
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.

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.
