Firefly Island by Lisa Wingate
A sweet, mishap-filled journey into marriage, motherhood, and ranching 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. Jacks' 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.
Review: Lisa Wingate is a beautiful, lyrical, spell-binding writer. Reading her writing is like taking a delicious spoonful of the most luxurious chocolate desert - every word is savored as a wondrous morsel. Her second book of the Moses Lake novel is wondrous and no less spectacular than her previous work, Blue Moon Bay, which I absoloutely adored.
This story is so sweet and touching. She can turn real life events into such a beautiful story, and her illustration of family is absolutely lovely. Every time I read one of Lisa's novels I am so sad to see the story end. I wish I could read her books every day and never run out. There are so few authors who I enjoy their writing even more than their story or plot. The amazing thing about Lisa is that her stories are great AND her writing is wondrous. I just love her writing so much. I would totally recommend all of books.
