Firefly Island by Lisa Wingate ~ Review & Giveaway @LisaWingate

Moses Lake, book 3
Contemporary Fiction

About the book:

Mallory Hale’s life veers unexpectedly off course when she falls hopelessly in love. After a whirlwind romance, Mallory finds herself leaving the bustle 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. But despite the adventure of her rosy new life, she soon discovers that even small towns have secrets.

When hints of a scandal emerge, Mallory comes to realize that this middle-of-nowhere home—the one she wasn’t sure she wanted—is the very place she’ll risk everything to save. Read chapter one!

Lisa Wingate is a magazine columnist, inspirational speaker, and the author of a host of mainstream fiction novels, including the national bestseller, Tending Roses, which is currently in its fourteenth reprint. Her books have been featured selections for Doubleday and Literary Guild book clubs, selected for The Reader's Club of America, and have garnered LORIES Best Fiction and Reader's Choice Awards, and been nominated for the ACFW Book of the Year Award. Recently, the group Americans for More Civility, a kindness watchdog organization, selected Lisa along with Bill Ford, Camille Cosby, and six others, as recipients of the National Civies Award, which celebrates public figures who work to promote greater kindness and civility in American life

My thoughts:

Have you ever gone from the hustle and bustle of the city and transplanted yourself into the middle of nowhere? Have you ever made a semi impulsive decision that changes the course of your life forever? That’s exactly what Mallory has done. We catch up with her in her busy life as a staffer in Washington, D.C.

Enter Daniel Everson. Cue the fireworks. You guessed it…love at first sight, except this time there is a bit of a twist. Daniel comes with an adorable little boy and an amazing job offer that will take him to rural Texas. What’s a girl to do? Why load up and go with him of course! Don’t worry, they get married first. Let me tell you, the honeymoon scene is worth the price of the book by far.

I have completely fallen in love with Lisa Wingate’s writing style. She has the ability to make you laugh out loud one minute and in the next you will find yourself pondering what has just appeared on the page. Her characters are quirky and funny but have a depth about them that makes you feel as if you've already met them.

Firefly Island is the third book in the Moses Lake series. In my opinion it is the best of the three. I really liked Larkspur Cove and Blue Moon Bay, but I loved Firefly Island. Each book in this series can easily be read as a stand-alone book. There are background characters such as the Docksiders that appear in each installment, but the story lines are all unique.

For a little bit of romance, a little bit of suspense and a whole lot of thought provoking scenarios, pick this book up. I am pretty sure that you are going to enjoy it!
