Wow, never thought I would be sucked into the book from page one! I absolutely loved this book, and wished I did not miss the other two books in the series. Lisa catches your attention with her writing her details are awesome! Mallory and Nick are the main focal point in this book. Mallory not only becomes a new wife, but a mother, as she adapts to her surroundings, you can understand the humor side of everything. She is so heartfelt, and her character is so down to earth. She takes on everything full force, even with her husband Nick by her side. Nick is so sweet, and surreal. Nick's boss makes the book a mystery that you never thought you would end up on, and for me that was the page-turner in itself. I would definitely recommend this book!
About This Item
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?• Author: Lisa Wingate • ISBN:9780764208232 • Format:Paperback • Publication Date:2013-02-01

Mallory Hale, has led a very exciting and glamorous life as a Congressional staffer. She has traveled, and is enjoying what she is doing, and at 34 has not found Mr right. That is until he is literally dumped in her lap, well, she drops all her stack of papers and Daniel Everson helps pick the up. She is Smitten, in one meeting! When Daniels life is suddenly changed with a new job offer in Texas...they know they are meant for each other, and decide to marry and make a family of three. Daniel has a precocious 3 1/3 year old son, Nick. Nick is so adorable, and you will fall in love with him. Daniels boss Jack West, leaves Mallory with uneasy feelings. Things are very different at Moses Lake TX...almost sounded like a resort...not! Wait until you see the house and experience living in it with them. There are other loveable characters in this book, and they seem to be there for those in need, even when they disagree. Enjoy your visits at the Waterbird Cafe, and Mallory's experience as a Mother of a little boy! What starts out as a love story, ends up being also a big mystery! I found this book to be a very quick read, and I just had to find out what happens next. I received this book through the Litfuse Blog Tours Program, and was not required to give a positive review.

Loved the mystery involved in this story. I would move to Moses Lake or Daily,TX anytime!
Mallory Hale is making...
Mallory Hale is making a life for herself in her way. Instead of resting on her dad's name and fame, Mallory is working her way up the ladder in Washington DC. Things change on a fateful day when she runs into a handsome stranger. Soon Mallory finds herself doing the unexpected- rushing to marry, becoming a step-mom, and packing it all up to move to a remote town in Texas. Her husband's new boss is a strange man with a mysterious past. When the boss's son comes to town, things get even stranger. Mallory will find herself on the adventure of a lifetime without even realizing. This book took some interesting turns I didn't see. I was really unsure of where book was going really as the romance was very quick. The author does a really good job of making you feel Mallory. The loneliness of being in a new town combined with a small town where everyone knows each other can be particularly hard. Mallory is so different from everyone else in Moses Lake. You are able to really feel how alone she truly is in the beginning. I also like that Mallory's preconceived notions were really challenged. She clearly felt she was above all the people in town when in actuality she needed them more than anything. I particularly enjoyed Mallory's neighbor Al. She was a no-nonsense kind of girl with her own past. She was a fun character. The book takes a long, languishing path to it's end. At times I almost felt it was on the verge of dragging some, but the author seemed to manage to avoid that for the most part. I also really loved all the quotes at the beginnings of the chapters. There were some great things written there that I really took to heart. At the heart of this book is the idea that God uses each of us in specific ways we may never quite understand. Each small thing can add up to one amazing thing. I loved that idea and the way it was presented in the book. The ending I both managed to guess and not see coming. Overall I enjoyed this book. It was a great slice of small town life and all the good and bad that goes with it. Book provided for review.

After the first few chapters I really did fall in love with the characters. At first the book was kinds of slow and I had a hard time getting into it and I wanted to give it a far shot so I stuck with it and I am glad that I did. Once I was about half way through the book I started to get into the book and it picked up. The author does a great job describing placing and I loved how one of the main characters starts writing a blog. I was overly fond of the ending but all in all it was a good book.
