Book Review - Catching Fireflies: A Sweet Magnolias Novel by Sherryl Woods

When bullying threatens to destroy a teen's life, painful memories resurface for dedicated high school teacher Laura Reed and pediatrician J. C. Fullerton. With the support of the Sweet Magnolias, they they bring the town together to ensure that a promising student's future isn't ruined. And to establish once and for all that bullying has no place in Serenity, South Carolina.

Both J.C.'s and Laura's passion for the cause is deeply personal, and their growing feelings for each other are just as strong. But with so many secret hurts to overcome, can these two vulnerable lovers find the strength to believe in happily ever after?

Sherryl Woods continues her popular "Sweet Magnolias" series with "Catching Fireflies," and all the cast of beloved characters are back and all up in each other's business - but in a good way!

I really enjoy the sense of community that Sherryl imparts in this series, and it is felt so strongly in this story, where the entire town comes together to put a stop to high school bullies who are bent on destroying one young girl's life.  Sherryl captures the emotion and grief and resulting strong sense of self-esteem and confidence that is delivered by this group of caring people.

I highly recommend this book, as well as the others in the series!

With her roots firmly planted in the South, Sherryl Woods has written many of her more than 100 books in that distinctive setting, whether in her home state of Virginia, her adopted state, Florida, or her much-adored South Carolina. Sherryl is best known for her ability to creating endearing small town communities and families. She is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over 75 romances for Silhouette Desire and Special Edition.
