Book Review: Firefly Island

About 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.

Meet Lisa:

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.


My Opinion
This book was part of the Moses Lake series but it really seemed like a standalone book to me. The author did mention some of the characters in Firefly Island that were main characters in the other books but it didn't change the way I read or understood the plot and characters in Firefly Island.

With that being said, this book was a whirlwind from the beginning but a good one! It got right into the story right away and I liked that! Since I am a blogger, I LOVED that Mallory became a blogger and I loved how she learned to live in a new environment while not throwing her new marriage to the wind! It was a great lesson for all married couples that love can withstand extreme challenges and still stay strong (if not stronger) with God's help!

This book was a great read and had romance, mystery, humor and faith all wrapped into one great book!
