Sometimes love takes you on an adventure completely off the map. 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.
Review: Lisa Wingate is a new author on my radar and after reading this latest
novel I'll be keeping up with her writing. I carried this book around
with me everywhere until I completed it. Thankfully the kids cooperated
and gave me some space to read in peace. It doesn't take long to get
swept up in the lives of Mallory and Daniel. Having lived in a small
town (no stop lights, 2 restaurants and a dollar general) with a child I
could empathize with Mallory and how hard the adjustment was from city
Jack West, the mysterious character that bring the family
to Moses Lake keeps you guessing on his motives and how everyone fits
together. I will admit I had my own ideas on what was going on albeit
they were wrong. I think that's what I liked about the story; it kept
me interested by not giving away the story line until the very end.
after 372 pages I found myself wanting more, even after the main
mystery was wrapped up, I still wanted more. I hope Lisa will invite us
back into this families life in a future book.
