Firefly Island by Lisa Wingate {Book Review}


{About the Book}


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

{My thoughts}

I really liked this book. It has a love story as well as intrigue. The main character, Mallory was a little difficult to connect with at first. I admit I didn't like her. She was very, ummm, the word I'm looking for I think is uptight. But as the story progressed I started to understand and see her in a different light. I can imagine that it would be very hard to suddenly have everything in your life turned upside down. If you like books with a little mystery this will be perfect for you!
