At thirty-four, congressional staffer Mallory Hale is about to embark on an adventure completely off the map. After a whirlwind romance, she is hopelessly in love with two men--fortunately, they're related. Daniel Everson and his little boy, Nick, are a package deal, and Mallory suddenly can't imagine her future without them.
Mallory couldn't be more shocked when Daniel asks her to marry him, move to Texas, and form a family with him and motherless Nick. The idea is both thrilling and terrifying.
Mallory takes a leap of faith and begins a sweet, mishap-filled journey into ranch living, Moses Lake society, and a marriage that at times reminds her of the mail-order-bride stories. But despite the wild adventure of her new life, she discovers secrets and questions beneath her rosy new life. Can she find answers on Firefly Island, a little chunk of property just off the lakeshore, where mysterious lights glisten at night?
This is the third book in the series, but the first one that I have read. I believe the book stands on it's own very well since Wingate does an impeccable job of giving the reader enough backstory in the beginning. I found the protagonist, Mallory, instantly likable. I was so excited for her when the man she loved asked her to marry him and his little boy. Uprooting from everything you know to start fresh, on top of a new relationship, seems imposing, but Mallory does it with charm. Even though she has her own insecurities, she laughs most of them off and I enjoyed the new bonds she made. There is a bit of a mystery though, when on the island, she sees lights sparkling at night. What are they and where do they come from? What do they mean? If you enjoy a clean romance with memorable characters, pick up Firefly Island. I loved it!
