The excitement of a love-at-first-sight whirlwind marriage quickly turns into a harrowing adventure when Mallory Hale leaves her comfortable Washington, D.C., life after Daniel accepts a new job. He is certain that their life in Texas will be perfect, both for the newlyweds and his son, Nick, but Texas is nothing like Mallory hoped for. Versatile and prolific, Wingate weaves a story of deception, secrecy, and scandal as Mallory attempts to settle into being a wife and mother in the tiny town of Moses Lake. Fitting in proves difficult, as their neighbors are wary of Daniel’s boss, and no one is willing to admit why. Just when they finally begin to get comfortable, Mallory uncovers truths tied back to her former days in the swirl of Washington politics. Concern for her family competes with Mallory’s desire to get to the bottom of the mess surrounding them. Wingate’s many fans and fans of women’s fiction will find this novel about one woman’s struggle to discover who she is meant to be deeply satisfying. --Carolyn Richard

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.

I enjoy Lisa’s writing style, character development, unique story lines and the fact that there is always personal growth, reconciliation and redemption in her novels. Lisa always finds an interesting premise, location or historical reference that leads me to do further research on the topic presented. I also like that her books are written in series which gives me an opportunity to get to know the characters better as the story lines develop and to see how they are progressing or what they are up to once they aren’t the focal point of the current story.
While I don’t always like the personalities of the characters (I’m sure that’s Lisa’s intent) at the onset, I do grow to love them and understand and appreciate their individual challenges and personalities as the story unfolds. I have sometimes felt uncomfortable as I was being taught lessons I needed to learn about how others might be challenged or struggling in their lives and the scenarios are realistic enough that you can certainly apply them to real life situations. At the end of the book, I am always loath to leave them and feel as if they are real people that I’ve grown to know and care about.
I have been inspired by Lisa’s wisdom, challenged to become a better person, laughed, cried and fallen in love with the people and localities she writes about.
I feel I am a better person for having read these books and always appreciate the measure of grace she brings to her writing. Each book leaves a great impression on me and my heart is full for a long time after the last page is turned.
It is important to me that Lisa somehow manages to do all of this without feeling the need to use graphic language or sex scenes as I do not find that these add anything to a story.
Don’t think that her books aren’t entertaining! Lisa adds wit to go along with the wisdom! There is always a little bit of romance, too!
I hope you will take the time to pick up one of Lisa’s books. You won’t be disappointed.
This is a very cute Christian story with lots of typical, yet funny, scenes. Little Nick becomes a major topic which this story centers around. Very entertaining. I gave Lisa Wingate five stars for her creative writing.
