About the book Dancing with Fireflies: 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.

My thoughts: This is a super sweet read. And by sweet I do mean sweet. Dancing with Fireflies is such a wonderful little love story/coming of age/the love that was always there that you never really noticed before. It’s a quick read as well. One of those cuddle up on a comfy chair on a rainy day and just read away until you’re done type read. Will Jade learn to love and let go? Or will she forever feel alone and lost even around those that love her? Great read. Awesome author. Reminds you a bit of the prodigal story but with a twist of course. I’m going to have to look up some more by this author for more Chapel Springs books.
