Firefly Island: A Book Review

About The Book:

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.

About The Author:

My Review:
With the writing style and talent that Lisa Wingate is known for, she has released a fantastic read in Firefly Island. You will everything a great novel needs: suspense, romance, great themes like family and friendships, learning to not judge, and the importance of having a relationship with God. 

The book is very fast paced and  trust me when I say that you will not be able to put it down until you have gotten to the very last pages. I was up late into the night reading! From the very first pages you are drawn into the world of Moses Lake, as the writing style and descriptions are amazing.

The characters from previous Moses Lake books make an appearance in Firefly Island, but if you haven't read the other two books just yet, no worries, you will still enjoy this one, without feeling lost. (although, you won't regret going back to read them) Firefly Island is by far my favorite of the Moses Lake Series, and I cannot wait to read more from Lisa Wingate in the future. 

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!

BUY IT: You can purchase Firefly Island at your favorite bookseller from Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group
