"Ladybugs and Fireflies" Review

Feisty fraud investigator, Callie Roberts, isn't looking for a knight in shining armor to rescue her. She's perfectly capable of taking care of herself. She's had to be. Now, her business is thriving and her goal of owning her own home is finally in reach...if she can land her dream client. The last thing she needs is to be distracted by a man, especially when he's the powerful New York attorney who's in town to represent the man her dream client has hired her to investigate. Taylor Powers' big city law career has brought him success, but a trip back to his home state of Florida has him wondering if it might be time to think of coming home for good. The sweet, sexy woman he's drawn to only confuses matters. Callie's career has made her a pro at keeping secrets and that plays havoc with his zero tolerance for deceptive women. Yet she attracts trouble like a magnet, kicking his protective instincts into overdrive. Can Taylor unravel the mystery that is Callie? And with a past full of heartache, will Callie ever allow herself to believe happily ever after really can come true?

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, and a boy, Taylor. They meet, sparks fly. They have a few misunderstandings along the way. Taylor rescues Callie from a kidnapper. He wakes up to the fact that he really does like her, more than he thought he did. But their jobs conflict with one another. They have to iron out the rough edges on their relationship, and finally they get together and hopefully they will live happily ever after.

I must say I am a sucker for a Cinderella Story, with the 'happily ever after ending.' 

I thought it was a fun book to read and therefore I am giving it 3***
