Dancing with Fireflies by Denise Hunter
A new book by Denise Hunter! This was one of her best. I know I say that about all of them, but really, this one was probably my second favorite (right after A Convenient Groom) of her books. Denise has been writing for decades and she never fails to deliver the best romance--and they are always a clean read.
Dancing with Fireflies is the story of a single young woman caught with an unexpected pregnancy. The way she deals with the heartbreaking circumstances is written with such grace that is to be admired. It also serves as a reminder that bad things do happen and we can't be too careful.
This would be a perfect book to take on a weekend getaway, took me a little over two hours to read it and I was completely entranced by the story.
Back cover copy:
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'd 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 non-existent, 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.
