Book Review - Firefly Island

Sometimes love takes you on an adventure completely off the map.

Mallory Hale's life quickly veers off course when she falls hopelessly in love. After a whirlwind romance, Mallory finds herself leaving the bustle and action of Capitol Hill for the remote town of Moses Lake, Texas-with husband, stepson, and a U-Haul in tow.

A sweet, mishap-filled journey into marriage, motherhood, and ranch living ensues, and Mallory is filled with both the wonderment of love and the insecurities of change. But what she can't shake is the unease she feels around her husband's new boss, Jack West. Jack's presence-and his mysterious past-set her on edge, and when hints of a scandal emerge, Mallory finds herself seeking answers . . . and comes to realize that the middle-of-nowhere home she wasn't sure she wanted is the very place she'll risk everything to save.
Lisa Wingate is a popular inspirational speaker, magazine columnist, and national bestselling author of several books, including Tending Roses, Talk of the Town, Blue Moon Bay, and Larkspur Cove, which won the 2011 Carol Award for Women's Fiction. Lisa and her family live in central Texas.
This book was one of those books that  you just can't put down. When I did have to put it down, I thought about the characters and couldn't wait to get back to it. That to me, is the mark of an excellent book. This book is the third book in the "Moses Lake" series, however, you don't have to have read the others to understand what's happening in this book. Another mark of a good book, in my opinion.

I liked seeing how Mallory adjusted to being a newly wed as well as being a step-mother. Even though she is very excited and very much in love, being thrown into this situation brings about difficulties for her.  

The thing I love about Lisa Wingates writing is she makes us care about the characters in her books. It's easy to feel what the characters are feeling because we care about them so much.

I loved the mystery element in the book. It was a page turner, for sure. There was just the right amount of romance, too. We were left wondering about some things in the book that I would have liked wrapped up, but honestly, it didn't affect the fact that I really enjoyed this book and can highly recommend it!
