Firefly Island

I received a copy of Firefly Island by Lisa Wingate from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

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.

This book was really good at making me think about how to keep things in my life in perspective.  Mallory goes from a single life of politics in Washington DC to married life on a ranch in a very small town in Texas.  She struggles with her choices daily.  In the end her gut was right and she realizes that the small town ranch life's not so bad after all.
