Lilac Cottage (Mackinac Cottages Series, #2) by Carrie Fancett Pagels


Out of options, Rachel Dunmara "camps out" at her deceased Grandmother's cottage on Mackinac Island. Next door, her childhood nemesis, Jack Welling, is overseeing his family's remodeling of their home on the West Bluff. When Rachel's new boss, at a local coffee shop, pushes her to work as Jack's assistant, for her second job, can they mend their rift?

Kareen Parker, widowed in the past year, returns to the island to share long-held information with her son and to transition ownership of her resort to her son. Her grandson befriends Rachel, who was banned by her family from associating with the Parkers.

In a summer full of secrets that are finally revealed, can three families be healed?

Needing a great summer read? Grab a copy of this new contemporary women's fiction novel by Carrie Fancett Pagels! She shares a heart-tugging, soul-searching story about three families who've long called beautiful Mackinac Island their home. Rachel Dunmara's visits to Lilac Cottage and Mackinac Island have provided her comfort and safe haven, but her latest trip may not provide the sanctuary that she had hoped. Secrets are revealed, relationships are explored, and there are some hurtful surprises that appear impossible to overcome. I was fully engaged with the twists, turns, and fascinating characters and I loved the inspiring messages of faith and redemption that are woven into the mysterious plot. Lilac Cottage is a winner!

I received an advanced reader copy from the author. There was no obligation for a positive review.
