This is the third book in the series, but the first one that I have read. I believe the book stands on it's own very well since Wingate does an impeccable job of giving the reader enough backstory in the beginning. I found the protagonist, Mallory, instantly likable. I was so excited for her when the man she loved asked her to marry him and his little boy. Uprooting from everything you know to start fresh, on top of a new relationship, seems imposing, but Mallory does it with charm. Even though she has her own insecurities, she laughs most of them off and I enjoyed the new bonds she made. There is a bit of a mystery though, when on the island, she sees lights sparkling at night. What are they and where do they come from? What do they mean? If you enjoy a clean romance with memorable characters, pick up Firefly Island. I loved it!

With a hook at the beginning that shows a bit from the future, the reader is quickly taken into the past and through the entire story to find out how this young woman goes from a single lady working in DC to a married woman in rural Texas. From the beginning, I was rooting for Mallory and wanted to know not only where she was going to end up but how she would get there.
Ms Wingate takes readers on a tale of colorful characters, love, and mystery. And the way she masterfully paints with her words drew me into this story so much so I could hardly put this book down.
Apparently Firefly Island is book three in the Moses Lake Series; however, I have not read any of the previous books and didnt feel that it was necessary to understand the storyline. This is my first time reading any of Ms Wingates book but after reading Firefly Island, Im definitely putting her books on my TBR list.
