My name is Mabel, the girl who “wouldn’t hurt a fly.”
Of course I wouldn’t.
I’m an entomologist for goodness’ sake.
I work in a nature center.
Bugs are my jam.
It’s the humans in my life who are starting to get me down. I’m used to them calling me sweet and innocent. I can even handle them calling me naive. But when they lie and keep secrets from me? That's when my proverbial pincers want to come out.
Trouble is, I'm not a girl who fights back.
Not until a handsome groundskeeper with a dirty mouth and secrets of his own shows up and lights all sorts of fires in me.
In the bug world, the female is always the fiercest. The praying mantis doesn’t worry about being a “good girl.” Nope, she follows her instincts no matter how crass or crude they may seem to others.
Turns out I could learn a thing or two from her.
I’m not looking to tear anyone’s head off necessarily, but after decades of being “nice”? It's high time for me to return to nature and unleash my wild side.

LOVED THIS BOOK
This book was great and fun to read! Loved the characters 🐝
Loved it! Such a fun read!
Lovebug by Erin Mallon is the second book in her Natural History series and it was such a charming and delightful rom-com. I was hooked from the first page and did not want to stop reading. I laughed and smiled the entire time. I loved Mabel. She was the quirky good girl who loves bugs and I just wanted to hug her. I absolutely loved watching her come into her own in her very own way. Wally was just the perfect guy. He was sweet and caring and just so likable. They were amazing together and I just loved when they interacted.
I had so much fun reading Lovebug by Erin Mallon. I laughed so much and loved the characters and their journey so much. I can’t wait to dive into the audiobook. Each book in the series can be read as a standalone but is so worth reading both!
