Firefly Island - Book Review
Firefly Island by Lisa Wingate marries DC politics and ranch life in the West. It seems like an unlikely coupling, but it works and works well.
Mallory is living the typical DC staffer life when she meets Daniel. After a bit of a whirlwind romance, they marry and move to Moses Lake, a small ranch town, for Daniel's work. Upon their arrival, they encounter near uninhabitable conditions, an eccentric boss and a host small-town characters who are more than meets the eye. If that wasn't enough, Mallory unravels a political mystery that may have deadly consequences.
My one minor complaint is that the end felt a little rushed to me. The rest of the book set up the story beautifully and then the end came a bit too quickly and left things a bit open-ended. Definitely still a worthy read if you enjoy a slow cooked mystery.
Bethany House Publishers provided me with a copy of this book to review, but I was not financially compensated in any way. The opinions expressed are my own and are based on my own observations and thoughts while reading this novel.
