Catching Fireflies was an endearing read with a great message.
-Romancing the Book


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 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?

Woods’s well-intentioned attempt to jump on the antibullying bandwagon leaves romance in the dust.

I found the inclusions of several pages of girl talk and drinking as an interruption to the flow of the detailed and slow-burning story.
