Firefly Island by Lisa Wingate confused me a little. It starts out in Washington, D.C. and then moves to a tiny town somewhere in Texas. What I thought was a romance novel turned into a suspense-filled action-packed story. I was able to follow it until the last three or four chapters, and then it picked up pace so quickly that it left me bewildered.
It was an easy read and was filled with some interesting facts (like how to get rid of fleas in your yard--I'm going to try that!), but it didn't satisfy what I was looking for.
From the back cover:
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.
