Firefly Island by Lisa Wingate: A Book Review




Mallory is destined for Daniel from the start.  Within the first pages of Lisa Wingate’s Firefly Island they literally collide – a move that seems to slightly bump everything else in to place (or maybe out!).  While she may have been prepared for destination Daniel Everson Mallory didn’t realize that a geographical destination (or shall we say, relocation) was right on her heels, too.  One whirlwind romance, one U-Haul trailer, and one doozy of a ride later, suddenly Mrs. Mallory Everson finds herself in Moses Lake, Texas – with the two men she’d cross the ocean (or in this case, the barren plains) for… new husband Daniel, and Nick – his precious little boy.

The adventure that ensues is definitely more that she planned. But there’s more going on beneath the surface in Moses Lake than what meets the eye, and Mallory may just find herself smack dab in the middle of it.

Romance. Mystery. Friendship. Loyalty. Ms. Wingate’s tale of small town Texas is one of a kind.
Lisa Wingate’s novel is a lovely read. The cowgirl in me loved the pictures of a sun-scorched Texas earth and tales of Pecos the dog. Rather newly married myself, I was encouraged by Mallory and 
Daniel’s new relationship – the hiccups and joys along the way.

I fell in love with Al – next door neighbor and cowgirl extraordinaire.

The mystery of Firefly Island was always simmering in the background, pieces revealed a little at a time… the telltale sign of a good read.  A perfect mix of casual reading and suspense, I enjoyed every page of Firefly Island.

I think you will, too.

*** With thanks to the publisher for providing me a copy of the book in exchange for my honest opinion.
