LitFuse Publicity: Firefly Island by Lisa Wingate

on March 13, 2013

About the Book:

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.
You can buy the book on Amazon.

My Opinion:
This was an awesome book!  I totally enjoyed every moment that I spent with this book and it’s characters and I thoroughly enjoyed how it was written – from the perspective of Mallory.  After a whirl-wind romance, which I can totally relate to, giving up career and home to become a stay at home step-mom, wife and more Mallory learns what it means to trust in God and in others and settles in to her life at Moses Lake.  At first I really didn’t want to like Mallory, she was selfish and really into what was in it for her – never really considering how it affected others – of course she is also young.
Filled with twists and turns and unexpected happenings, both physical and emotionally/spiritually the book will keep you on the edge of your seat as you look at Mallory’s life through her eyes as she learns that there comes a time when one does need to rely on others as well as how to be a real friend and ultimately to become a child of God.  I really must say that if you read one book this year, make it this one – although one caution, Mallory does like to use karma a lot, not that she believes in it but it’s like sort of a mindless thought process as she thinks through the issues in her life – but it didn’t detract from the overall message of God’s constantly calling to us.
**Disclaimer:  I was given a copy of this e-book from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for my honest opinion, no other compensation was given.
