I received the book in the mailbox this afternoon from the author, Cheryl Alldredge. I set right down and read it immediately. It is a short book of 141 pages. It was just what I needed for a quick lazy summer day of reading. It was a cute little Southern Romance book. If you like light romantic reading, I think you would enjoy this book. Being a Gigi (Great Gramma) it was an okay read, however, I think the 20-40 years old will enjoy reading it much more so than I did.

It is about a girl, Callie,

Callie Roberts and Taylor Powers are two strong people who are in no way looking to start a relationship as they both lead very busy lives and their work basically takes up every waking moment! However fate has a sense of timing that these two people cannot ignore and when Taylor walks into the local watering hole and Callie turns around and sees him they are both lost from that moment on... Ironically when Callie and Taylor meet they do not exchange information about their chosen professions of ...more

While the title had me expecting something rather whimsical, Ladybugs and Fireflies is, in fact, a zippy and quite classic contemporary romance with just enough intrigue to allow for the unexpected.

Callie Roberts, investigator, has had a crappy history in the romance department. And it's been ages since she had a date. Taylor Powers does not appear to be the man who's going to change all that. Well, perhaps for a moment there he does

I received this book from the author through a contest here on Goodreads.

Initially, when I went to read the book I thought it sounded good, but after reading a couple of books that I hated, I put off reading this because I feared hating this one too.

I’m happy to say that I really enjoyed this book. I was a little leery about the conflict between Callie and Taylor and how they would resolve it, but I was pleased with the story and resolution of the misunderstanding.

I’m not normally a fan of th

Ladybugs and Fireflies was a delight to read. The southern setting was fun and came alive through Miss Alldredge's excellent skill at description. Her hero is sexy and sweet. The heroine is smart and sassy. I loved the interweaving of family drama and conflict and the down-home feel of this book. Miss Alldredge has a smooth, easy-to-read style that I thoroughly enjoyed. I will definitely look for more books from her. This is a short book, but it's packed full of romance and is a great read.

I loved Taylor and Callie! And the ending was so cool! I didn't see that coming. :) There were a few minor typos and Taylor said a couple of things that I thought were a little un-alpha male, but none of that detracted from this great read. Once I started, I couldn't put it down. The author did a superb job of describing the town and people, creating a perfect movie in my mind. I'd definitely recommend Ladybugs and Fireflies to others.

Callie and Taylor are as different as night and day--or so they think. But they take a chance that ends in apparent disaster. Can love make a way? Red-blooded, classic romance with heart!
