Dancing with Fireflies – Book Review

I received a copy of this book to review.

Dancing with Butterflies

Dancing with Fireflies by Denise Hunter was a wonderful read! It was a light romance with no mushy stuff, no mystery just a good old-fashioned novel. I really loved how the character were brought to life and interacted with each other. I could see this as a wonderful movie as well.

Dancing with Fireflies is about a young woman, Jade that returns home pregnant and no where else to turn. While home looking for  a job and a husband she finds herself falling in love with a childhood friend.


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.
