Book Review | Firefly Island
Title: Firefly Island
Author: Lisa Wingate
Firefly Island takes us into the life of Mallory Hale; the girl from DC, who fits into life on Capitol Hill effortlessly. Things change for her when she takes on the role of wife, mother, and new resident of Moses Lake, Texas. She is thrown into ranch life with no life preserver. It’s sink or swim, adapt and survive. Mallory takes us into her daily life and the challenges and small victories she accumulates as the weeks pass by in her new town. Only there does she discover that things are not all they seem on the surface.
Lisa Wingate writes with an effortless grace and ease. I was drawn into the book immediately. There are twists and turns, laughs and tragedy. This was a book I wanted to hurry up and read, and then take my time and savour it. I know it’s a book that draws me in when it’s a story I never want to end, but also one I want to hurry up and finish, so I know how it all unfolds for the characters that become almost life like. Firefly Island was one of those books for me. It’s filled with romance and love, and the dreams of a happy ever after. Danger and mystery are woven in as well, making this a book full of memorable characters and a story line that is believable right from the start. Ups and downs, tears and smiles, and new friends and old secrets await you in this book.
