Review: Firefly Island
“Lisa Wingate is a glorious storyteller!” –New York Times bestselling author Adriana Trigiani
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.
When Mallory meets a young man her age that she has never seen before, her hopes go up that maybe God does have someone out there for her.
After Mallory and David get married and move to Texas with David’s son Nick, from a previous marriage, Mallory gets a weird gut feeling that something isn’t quite right at the ranch the moved to. She is right when she finds that Jack West’s son comes to the ranch and things start to get a little strange in the couple of weeks he’s there.
When Jack has an accident, David has a feeling that Mason, Jack’s son, has something to do with it. He just can’t prove anything, yet. So Mallory decides to do a little investigating on her own.
The plot of this story was really good, the only thing that I really didn’t like was the science mentioned in it. Since that was only mentioned a few times and not the actual theme of the book, I can’t complain can I? I think the author did a good job of writing this book and I want to read more of her books based in the same location with some of the same characters.
