Denise Hunter in her new book “Dancing With Fireflies book coverDancing With Fireflies” Book Two in the Chapel Springs Romance series published by Thomas Nelson takes us into the life of Jade McKinley.

From the back cover:   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.

I like the McKinley family and this time the focus is on Jade.  She has the perfect name to go with her perfect green eyes.  And what more can you say about a young woman who danced on the lawn with fireflies?  Jade didn’t feel that Chapel Springs fulfilled her so she left but now, like the Prodigal Daughter, she has to return.  This is a good thing for Daniel because he has always been in love with her and feels he has a new chance to be with her. If this is going to work Jade is going to have to heal of all her past hurts so that she can embrace the present and move into the future.  “Dancing With Fireflies” is a sweet romance that has the best characters of Jade and Daniel in it.  I liked it and look forward to the next visit with the McKinley family.
