Review of Lisa Wingate's Firefly Island-Litfuse Contest

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.

My Review:

This was a pretty intense book at times.  It kind of started out slow, with a whirlwind romance and marriage.  It was well written and that helped a lot.  I liked the plot, but I was a little disappointed in the end.  Sometimes I liked the character of Mallory and other times I couldn’t stand her, because she was self-centered and selfish.  But as time went on she became very likable and spunky.  She has a gut instinct about her husband’s new employer, but is her instinct right.  Towards the end, the story got very edge of your seat, nail-biter, but then I was kind of disappointed in the ending.  It wasn’t anything like I expected and the one major mystery that was prevalent throughout the book was never resolved.  You never found out what really happened or who did what.  Kind of disappointing.  Other than that it was pretty good.   I liked the suspense very much, just disappointed that it wasn’t something more.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
