The tension between Daniel and Jade was so strong and the "will they? Wont they?" keeps you guessing until the last page. I read this book in one sitting and was sad when it was over. I would definitely recommend this book-and have to many friends and family! Looking forward to more from this author.

I'm surprised CBD is selling this as Christian fiction. It's very borderline Christian fiction. The author just kept repeating the same thing over and over again. I made myself finish it because I thought it was going to get better but, it didn't. It's just not that good.

Fitzysmom5 Stars Out Of 5May 28, 2014FitzysmomJade McKinley had big plans for her life. She had moved to Chicago to pursue her dreams. But one seemingly innocent evening changed everything. Now she's headed home to Chapel Springs with a secret she's not going to be able to keep for very long.
The first person she turns to upon arriving in Chapel Springs is Daniel Dawson. He's the safe choice. He's always been there and Jade has looked at him as another big brother. The problem is that Daniel doesn't see Jade in the same way. In fact he's spent the last year trying to put his feelings for her behind him and move on. Then on a random Spring evening Jade unexpectedly shows up on his doorstep. She needs him . . . but only as a friend.
In Dancing With Fireflies we get to experience the divine hand of God at work in two peoples lives. What seems like one traumatic incident after another is used to bring about the perfect outcome at just the right time.
Denise Hunter has the art of sexual tension down! Her love scenes pack some definite heat without crossing the line. If you are interested in an electrified romance search no further. Dancing With Fireflies can certainly be read as a stand alone. But let me just recommend going back and reading Madison and Beckett's story in Barefoot Summer. Then treat yourself to the delightful little novella, A December Bride, that is a nice little bridge between the two novels. Trust me, you won't regret it!
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

When I opened this book I literally couldn't put it down. A wonderful story of two people who have been friends for years that come together in a crisis and suddenly their friendship is much more. Ms. Hunter brings out so many issues in this book that a lot of authors shy away from, but she explores the issues. This is a good clean read. I would recommend it to anyone.
