Firefly Island

I just finished reading Firefly Island by Lisa Wingate. 

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. 

I thought this book was ok. I found it very slow moving in the beginning. Once they moved to Texas I felt like a lot of the story was just filler. I really started to enjoy it the last third of the book when it became more suspenseful. 

I also felt like the book left me hanging. I would have liked to know what happened with Jack and his son. I would also have liked to know what happened to his wife and stepson. It felt like a lot of the beginning story line was just ended without any resolution.
