Lisa Writes Another Hit!!

"Firefly Island"
  By Lisa Wingate

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:
  Firefly Island is a wonderful story about relationships, taking chances, change, adventure, regrets and finding meaning in life.
I found this to be a MOST intriguing book! I was entranced from beginning to end and found it very difficult to put down, even for a moment. I HAD to know what was going to happen next. Lisa has a special talent for capturing your attention immediately, in the first chapter, and maintaining it throughout, by adding unexpected twists and turns in her plot. You can never guess what is “around the corner”- on the next page. What is predictable, just doesn’t occur.  The mysteries were solved- although NOT in the way I had guessed.

Lisa has a unique ability to describe her characters in a such a realistic way that their fears and challenges become your's .  I could feel Mallory's desire to be married and have a loving husband and family. Her pain and terror glued me to my seat.  Heartache was felt, as well as her every joy. Her stepson was simply adorable.  I could picture him, enjoying the vivid descriptions of his appearance and behaviors. Jack, Mallory's husband presented  a mystery.  I loved him and disliked him all in the same chapter.  To be able to connect with the characters, is what attracts me to a book. AND this book did just that!! A total success!!

"Firefly Island" is definitely a five star book!  Lisa Wingate is an author to watch. I am already anticipating her next book!!
