Dancing with Fireflies By Denise Hunter


Jade returns home to Chapel Springs after years of protecting her fragile heart. Then along comes Daniel, making her long to dance again.

Creative and complicated, Jade McKinley felt like a weed in a rose garden growing up in Chapel Springs. When she left, she thought she’d never look back. But now, pregnant, alone, and broke, she has no other choice but to return.
The mayor of Chapel Springs, Daniel Dawson, has been an honorary member of the McKinley family for years. While his own home life was almost non-existent, Daniel fit right into the boisterous McKinley family. He’s loved Jade for years, but she always saw him as a big brother. Now that she’s back, his feelings are stronger than ever.
As Jade attempts to settle in, nothing feels right. God seems far away, she’s hiding secrets from her family, and she’s strangely attracted to the man who’s always called her “squirt." Finding her way home may prove more difficult than she imagined.

Super, Fantastic, Heartwarming, brilliant are just a few words to describe this book.
I am Denise's number one fan, she does not know how to write anything but 5 star books.
Dancing with Fireflies was yet another one of those five star books, you can NOT put it down once you start reading it.
I fell in love with Jade and Daniel and cheered every step of the way for them.
This is the best romance book you will read all year.
I was so happy at how everything turned out in the end.
This just might be Denise's best book by far!
I gave this book 5 stars of course.
I was given a copy if this book by the publisher for my honest review.
