Publisher's Description

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

Growing up in the midwestern river town of Chapel Springs, Indiana, Jade McKinley felt like a weed in a rose garden. When she left, she thought she’d never look back. 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 nonexistent, Daniel fit right in with the boisterous McKinley family. He’s loved Jade for years, but she always thought of 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.” Returning home may prove more difficult—and more wonderful—than she ever imagined.

Includes Reading Group Guide.

“Hunter’s latest Chapel Springs Romance is a lovely story of lost and found, with a heroine struggling to accept that trusting God doesn’t make life perfect—without loss or sorrow—but can bring great joy. The hero’s love for her and willingness to lose her to save her is quite moving.” —RT Book Reviews, 4 stars (on Barefoot Summer)

    This is a book I have read and choose to reread rather than start a new book. Love the characters, the real life situations and cohesiveness.

    Jade 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.

    Denise Hunter always brings a very good story, but I do believe this is her best so far. 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.

    Have you ever experienced a series of crushing events that knocked the wind right out of you? Have you ever felt so lost that navigating back to "true north" meant digging your way through underbrush and thorns?

    This is the place we find Jade McKinley: young. alone. scared. disillusioned. dreams shattered. body violated.

    After a violent assault renders Jade traumatized and pregnant, she reluctantly returns to the one safe place to regain her bearings: home. What is gained is so much more than the love and support of family, but a lifeline in the most unexpected form of a childhood friend.

    In Dancing with Fireflies, Denise Hunter weaves a tender story of the power of friendship to restore a wounded heart and the reawakening of self that occurs when layers of doubt, fear, and recovery are worked through with unconditional support.

    We find in Jade McKinley the story of what it means to be jarred so far from normal that it takes the support of selfless friendship to dismantle the cement walls erected around a traumatized heart. The journey to healing requires Jade to face her fears and work through them; learning to trust and love again is the only way to reconnect with self, friends, and God.

    We find in Daniel Dawson, a kind, gentle, patient, and loyal friend who knows just what to say to build confidence, how much space to give to allow for processing, and the right balance of compassion coupled with firmness to bring Jade's fears to Light. In Daniel's character we see an excellent example of committed gentleness that beautifully mirrors the desire of God to heal wounds and restore hearts to wholeness.

    (I received a complimentary copy from the publisher, Thomas Nelson, via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.)

    Denise Hunter is one of my "go to" authors when I want a romance that tugs at my heart and always leaves me smiling by the end of the book. Dancing with Fireflies is no exception to that. I loved this book!

    Dancing with Fireflies is part of the Chapel Springs series. I think you could read this as a stand alone, but it would be so much better to read it as part of the series. Daniel has been a part of Jade's life for many years. He has always been like a big brother to her and is very much a part of her family. But somewhere along the line, Daniel fell in love with Jade. She was so in love with another man that she never felt the same or realized that Daniel's feelings had changed.

    This book begins with Jade's return after having been gone an entire year. She is returning home and is pregnant and alone. Daniel still loves her. She still sees him as a best friend. This makes for wonderful tension in the book! There were just so many moments that made me catch my breath and this is one of those books that I stayed up way too late into the night to read!

    Denise Hunter weaves love and attraction with feelings of fear and desperation in her stories. She has an amazing ability to create characters so very real. And she creates beautiful happily-ever-afters that tie up her books at the end and leave me with a smile on my face.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.
