    Heart-Squeezing

    Favorite Quotes: Stephanie’s voice had the same smug tone as in first grade when she’d told Cat the whole class had seen her underwear. “Cat’s the only person I know who can get hurt even watching sports. Remember when she went to get snacks at Nick’s high school basketball game and tripped over Mom’s purse? She fractured three toes.” She flashed her sister a teasing grin. “That kept her out of gym class for the next month, which, for Cat, was a good thing.” You need to smile more. It’s not good to be so serious. Besides, smiling makes good wrinkles. The truth reverberated in Luc’s head like the big Chinese gong in the party room at the Pink Pagoda. My Review: Firefly Lake appears to be populated with a bevy of unique and interesting inhabitants, as well as the usual petty and narrowed minded small-town residents, sadly, I remember the later all too well from my uncomfortably restrictive formative years. Unfortunately, no one of any note, talent, or intelligence ever sprang from the soil there as famous as the engaging and endearing characters Ms. Gilroy has featured in her entertaining tales. In this installment, a struggling single mother is returning to her small hometown to find her now famous childhood crush has also returned after a career-ending injury forced his retirement from the NHL, and wouldn’t you know, her learning disabled and trouble-prone daughter excels at hockey. While the anxious single mom had been gifted in school and even skipped a few grades, her daughter was impulsive, lippy, more than a bit bratty, and just not the sharpest tool in the shed. The storyline was realistic, relevant, and multi-faceted with a large cast of characters carrying over from the previous books. While the tone was considerably angsty and heart-squeezing, there were also amusing bits of humor and insightful observations periodically tossed in like life-rafts that helped fight the pensive undertow of the forlorn and despondent and kept me engaged.

    I want to live at Firefly Lake

    Oh, how I wish I lived at Firefly Lake. I want to be friends with Cat and Luc. I want to be part of that amazing McGuire family. The friendships, the families, and their relationships in this town are truly special. The way they stand up for each other, protect each other, and go to the ends of the earth to help each other is amazing. Cat is an amazing mom. Being a single mom is hard and rewarding. Cat has decided to make Amy her whole world and has no time for a boyfriend. Until she is reunited with Luc, her high school friend that she has always had a crush on, then feelings start to come around. Yet, she has to figure out how to work a boyfriend into her life and not upset the careful balance she has. Luc has history he has to deal with. He is a widow, losing his wife while he was on the road with the NHL. He doesn’t talk about it, he never forgets, and he doesn’t know how to move past it. He doesn’t know how to open his heart and learn how to love again. Everything about this book is wonderful, from the friendships to the families and the relationships all the way around. I love the setting of Firefly Lake and the history of the town. The rest of this series is one that I cannot wait to get my hands on. Thank you Barclay Publicity for including me in the book tour and providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Jen Gilroy takes readers home ...

    Jen Gilroy takes readers home again. Back to the painful moments, the heartbreaking disappointments and a chance at finding out where a person really belongs. Firefly Lake is the place in the review mirror, that continues to call your name. A place that allows healing, redemption and new beginnings. Cat was the girl who never fit in. Luc was the boy with the world at his feet. Until life got in the way and brought the big hockey star and the single mother, back to their roots. Back Home at Firefly Lake is about being strong enough to move forward, when the world tries to hold you back.
