How far would you go for the man of your dreams?
Now that he’s single, Chicago businessman Jordan Monroe can finally take his long-desired trip to Mackinac Island for the Somewhere In Time fan celebration weekend. On the first day, Jordan finds himself attracted to Miles Colter, a handsome local stable owner who is giving horseback tours of film locations.
Jordan is surprised and charmed that Miles pursues him. When Jordan learns the stable is in trouble, he wants to help despite Miles’s resistance. As their relationship grows personally and professionally, Jordan dreads the issues that face them—an ex who won’t let him go, the complications of a long-distance relationship, and a secret he knows he shouldn’t be keeping.
Can Jordan and Miles find a way to forge a love as timeless as the romance in their favorite film?

Somewhere on Mackinac is part of the Dreamspinner Press States of Love series. This story is set on Mackinac Island and around a movie called Somewhere in Time. I have never watched or heard of this movie, but that didn't affect my enjoyment of this story. But, I think if you enjoyed this movie, you will definitely enjoy this book. The setting of this story is a Somewhere in Time themed weekend on the island, so if you haven't watched the movie, and want to, you should definitely watch the movie before reading this. The author does warn about possible movie spoilers in regards to the movie.

Jordan is a single man from Chicago and a HUGE fan of the movie. He's dreamed of taking his vacation during the themed weekend but could never convince his ex-boyfriend to go the island with him. This year, nothing is stopping Jordan. He embraces everything about the time on the island and is open to every new experience he can have. Jordan has a personality that draws people to him, and he easily makes friends with those around him. He also meets Miles on his first day on the island. Miles owns the stables on the island and has lived there all his life, including when the movie was filmed. He loves the movie just as much as Jordan and has stories to tell of that time. Jordan and Miles strike up a friendship over their shared love, and their attraction grows. But, finding your dream guy while on vacation isn't easy when the vacation time comes to an end.

Both of the MC's were really likable in this story, the story was well written and it flowed easily. And Mackinac was a very important part of this story. I've never been to Mackinac Island, but if this story and descriptions are accurate, it sounds like a very quaint, enjoyable place to visit.
