Good romance story.
Margie L. Roland
Secondary characters are also well done (friends are important- just look what Sally gets Callie into!)and happily fully-drawn also.
LAS Reviewer
You can't drift into more than one plot, and you can't focus too much on secondary characters.

Ladybugs and Fireflies is now one of my new favorite reads for 2011.

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 Private Investigator in Callie's case and Lawyer in Taylor's... This causes some problems later on and almost makes the relationship a total bust!

Happily their love is strong enough to withstand the misunderstandings and after a few more kinks are ironed out the story ends on a high note with a very romantic and well deserved HEA for the pair...

This book is a wonderful example of how two people who have been damaged by past relationships can find the one person who can heal their hurts and give them joy when they least expect to find it!

At a little less than 150 pages this novella reads like a longer story, the characters are well fleshed out and the plot lines are truly interesting and engage the readers imagination. You have to get your own copy to fully appreciate what I mean without my giving anything away so as not to spoil the story for anyone else...

I fell in love with feisty Callie and sexy Taylor and you will too, run out and buy a copy as the book is great summer reading!

A very good story. Enjoyed learning about the tenacity of the main characters. Though they came from different types of families, truth saved the day.

Format: Paperback
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 look like he's going to change all that. Anything can happen in `speed dating,' let's face it. However, this fancy lawyer is only going to make life - and very probably her job - more difficult. She doesn't know that at first of course: because they share one look and are swept away. It all seems so perfect for a moment...

Callie, although sweet in a slightly southern way, is far from the elegant yet helpless belle-type southern gal. In fact, I found her to be a perfectly wonderful leading lady: she's feminine but self-sufficient; a bit of southern charm but tough, or maybe stern. Maybe a tiny bit of that self-sufficiency is from from life rather than inclination, but I found her admirable just the same. And she has a faintly humorous outlook, much of the time, that gives the story a sort of happy aura.

Taylor is everything a leading man should be: dashing, protective, forthright... and we hope, even honest. He's good, and we so want Callie to see that. Maybe he's not the complex character she is, but readers will really like him just the same. His point of view might reveal a little too much, but it isn't distracting. It does help us to understand his frustration and maybe allow us to feel a little bit frustrated with Callie too. Aldredge really has a way of conveying not just a believable character, but their emotions.

Love this book from word one. It reads like a good old fashioned romance should read - connects you with the characters and doesn't let go. Love it.
