Rebecca ManeyGastonia, North CarolinaAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Perfect Summer Read!August 3, 2015Rebecca ManeyGastonia, North CarolinaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Jade McKinley has returned home as a shadow of her former self and carrying a secret that is guaranteed to change her life forever. Rather than immediately announcing her return to the McKinley family, she shows up on the steps of Daniel Dawson's boat house. Daniel; strong, loving, compassionate, brotherly, mayor-of-Chapel-Springs Daniel. Jade needs a job and Daniel should be able to help her find one.
Daniel cannot decide whether to be ecstatic or furious that Jade McKinley has returned home to Chapel Springs, Indiana. Angry that he has not heard from her in over a year and thrilled to be in the same geographic space with the undeclared love of his life, she still has the ability to take his breath away. But life has obviously not treated Jade kindly in Chicago, and when Daniel becomes Jade's confident, he immediately knows that a future with Jade McKinley is all but lost.
Will love find a way for Jade to "dance with fireflies" once again? Will Daniel have to let Jade slip through his heart forever? Denise Hunter has crafted a lovely, engaging and memorable story that this reader has enjoyed more than once.
Kaylee5 Stars Out Of 5Dancing With FirefliesOctober 3, 2014KayleeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I absolutely loved this book and I literally couldn't put it down! 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.
