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 book was better than I expected. I'm not a fan of whirlwind romances, so I wasn't sure how I would feel about it. However, I appreciated that Mallory was able to fall in love on her own, even if she did feel like it was a mail-order bride marriage at times. I also loved her relationship with Nick, and how that blossomed. However, it just seemed kind of... empty to me. Nothing about the story made me want to read it again. It just needs a little something more.
I received this book free for review for a LitFuse Blog Tour. I was not required to post a positive review, simply an honest one.
