Mallory Hale, you poor naive character whom I thought I pitied throughout the novel as I thought you nothing but a whiny middle-aged character who had way too many phobias to count on one hand. Tragically, was nothing more than an attention seeking woman. I was wrong. Very, very wrong.

Actually, Mallory Everson (née Hale), you astound me. I expected a very Godly woman (that might be because I received this novel from Bethany House, but nonetheless) it was nice to read something that wasn’t loaded with biblical verses allowing the reader to really get into the story. Which was awesome!

Firefly Island is a well-written novel which I was unaware is part of a series but has proven that you don’t need to read the first 2 to find out what’s happening in Moses Lake. We meet a very well-done young lady who falls head-over-heels in love with a man she bumps into 2-3 times while she’s shuffling around Capital Hill. They start dating, Daniel Everson, the man on her dreams,  gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to move across the country and work for a notorious Texan on his acreage to work on a very secretive science experiment relating to growing crops in “weird” places. Does he pass it up or take the offer? What does this mean for him and Mallory? Did I forget to mention that Mallory has fallen completely in love with Daniel’s tyke son, Nick? Oh the drama!

Actually it’s not. Nothing that wouldn’t be considered irregular. Almost like if you were witnessing the happenings and the politics of a small town that one could never expect.

Is this book worth a read? Absolutely! I’d recommend this book to be a great beach read.
