Firefly Island {Book Review}

I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishers in return for a honest review. These are my true feelings regarding this book.

Here is the the summary of the book from

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?

I loved loved loved this book!! For two days straight I didn't put this book down. I was instantly sucked in by the end of the first chapter. Mallory felt like a genuine character that was both relate able and amazing. I feel like her journey could be any woman's journey. I know that I related to her because of her go getter attitude, her independence, and her romantic nature.

There definitely was a few parts that confused me mostly at the end in regards to the laws they were speaking about. Also, I would have preferred if the last chapter didn't tie everything up neatly but that we were able to get more in depth conclusions in the aftermath of them solving the mystery. 

I loved the suspenseful nature of this book, the honesty regarding being a step-mother {which I am}, and how Mallory came to writing a blog called The Frontier Woman. 

This book was an easy read and I would highly recommend this book! 

Has anyone else read this book? What did you think?
