Firefly Island by Lisa Wingate

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. Link to buy the book:

  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. Visit

My Take:  I really like books that mix a little bit of romance with a little bit of mystery and/or suspense.  This book does that and then some.  There is just enough mystery to keep you turning the pages and just enough romance to become invested in the characters.

Mallory gives up her whirlwind life after having a whirlwind romance and moves to a small much sloooower paced  Texas town.

Lisa has created believable characters that have flawed lives just like the rest of us.  We are not perfect and neither are these characters.

This book can be read as a stand alone but there are two other books that take place in Moses Lake, TX.  I enjoyed my latest trip to Texas and hope to visit again. 

I received a review copy of this book from Lit Fuse in exchange for my honest review.
