Questions never asked don’t always remain unanswered.
Ryleigh Collins spent the last year wrapping her head around an unexpected separation. When she discovers a blood-stained journal among her deceased mother’s belongings, her curiosity overpowers the dread of an impending divorce, and she embarks on a quest to uncover the truth about the journal—secrets her mother took to the grave.
Her curiosity leads her to a mysterious stranger from her mother’s past who knows things he can’t possibly know. Bearing a deeply scarred heart, Ryleigh returns home to her ex-husband’s plea for forgiveness. Overwhelmed, she seeks refuge in the quiet majesty of the Rocky Mountains. But as a paralyzing snowstorm develops, she is forced into seclusion with Logan Cavanaugh, the distinctly reserved resort owner with secrets of his own.
What Ryleigh Collins discovers sets in motion a future she never envisioned.

Well-Written and Heartwarming
A Promise of Fireflies is a touching romantic love story, filled with beautiful lyrical prose and emotional twists.
Ryleigh Collins was still grieving over her husband’s betrayal when her mother died. Among her mother’s possessions, Ryleigh found a cryptic letter and a poetry journal. Wanting to unravel the mystery behind her new discoveries, Ryleigh boarded a plane to NY.
Once in NY, Ryleigh met with Ambrose, a wise old man who had known her mother well. He was not only able to shed light on the confusing letter and journal, but was able to reveal to Ryleigh, her mother’s darkest secret. This frail white-haired man also told Ryleigh that she would fall in love again. Ryleigh didn’t believe him, though, until it happened. But for Ryleigh, falling in love was one thing, giving her heart over and trusting another man, was something else altogether.
This book is well-written, enjoyable, and heartwarming. My favorite character was the eccentric Ambrose. His mysterious and mystical way, added, a bit of magic to this romantic story.
