Dancing with Fireflies by Denise Hunter ~ Litfuse Tour & Review

Dancing with Fireflies (Chapel Spring #2)

Lucie's Review:
This was not an easy book to read, nor and easy review to write. Dancing with Fireflies carries a mature theme, with plenty of mixed emotions, with heart-wrenching choices, yet glimmers of hope shine through.

Daniel Dawson has been in love with Jade McKinley for years, but he's been afraid to tell her for fear of losing their easy friendship.

Jade returns to Chapel Springs, but doesn't tell her family the reason for her return. Jade decides that the best way to fix everything is to get married, but she never wants to fall in love again. She tells Daniel that she wants a marriage of convenience, and that she wants him to find someone for her to marry. But perhaps the love she was looking for was there all along...

The characters are well developed, and I felt like I got to know them and what made them tick, as well as the fears that haunted them. There was good dialogue between Daniel and Jade, which I thought was done very realistically with texting, etc.

If you have read the previous book in the series you may recognize Jade's family, the McKinley's. there was a good faith track, and Jade's mom was great.

Daniel was an excellent hero, and Jade did have reasons for most of her angst, yet she did bring some of it upon herself.

Overall, this was kind of a hard book to read, with all that was going on, nothing seemed to be going right. But I did end up enjoying the book, through it all. A great emotional read.

About the book: A Chapel Springs Romance

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.
