“Firefly Effect is K.K. Allen at her romantic suspense best! With twists and turns you never see coming, you’ll quickly fall in love. Hands down one of the best books I’ve read this year!" Linz Readz Book Obsessed

When a single dad moves to a small town and becomes obsessed with a potential client—a beautiful woman haunted by her tragic past.

For years, tales of the Firefly Man were nothing more than elaborate rumors spread by residents of the Appalachian Mountains.
Until the night Evelyn Vaughn stumbled upon a dead body in the woods.
Fear gripped her, and silence stole her voice.
All while she watched the boy she was with that night take the fall.

Fourteen years later, Evelyn is nothing more than a shell of her former self.
Her life moves like a clock from one moment to the next, never a surprise.
Gone are the days of chasing fireflies through the woods.
Until her therapist goes missing, and he’s replaced with someone new.
Dr. Lincoln Reed, a devastatingly handsome single dad with an intensity behind his evergreen eyes that jolts her back to life.

Or does it?

Evelyn is quickly losing grip of the suppressed reality she’s worked so hard to maintain.
With every new session on Dr. Reed’s couch comes a startling new revelation that has her past awakening like the sparkles of light she used to chase through the nighttime woods.

The Firefly Man was supposed to be a rumor, a fable, a spooky tale.
But Evelyn knows the truth.
He’s her very own phantom.
And he’s back.

From the very beginning, this book had me guessing and I was wrong with every assumption!! Firefly Effect weaved a story of mystery, heartache and romance that made you not only wish that you could undo the past, but proved that sometimes the best things are worth waiting for.

Fourteen years ago Evelyn went through a very traumatic event that changed her life. Still dealing with that trauma as an adult has not only made her wary of certain things, but she chooses to keep herself closed off personally. When the new town's therapist arrives, it sends Evelyn on an unexpected journey of hidden memories, forgiveness and falling in love. But with that comes danger and it's now getting closer than being hidden in the forest.


I really enjoyed the majority of this story and the setting. I felt like I was a part of the small community and I could visualize everything the characters were describing. I felt the fear and being on edge as we got closer to finding the truth and I loved that it gave me that kind of thrill. I will admit that the first half is a slow burn and it took me a minute to get into but once it picked up, I was hooked.

If you're in the mood for a small town mystery romance that will keep you guessing until the very end, I highly recommend you give this one a try.
