Dancing With Fireflies by Denise Hunter

About the Book
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
To put it quite simply, I adored this book! I always love Denise Hunter's books but I'm pretty sure this is my all-time favorite! Several of my favorite story elements were included and the writing was just superb! 
Daniel was an absolutely fantastic hero! He was sweet, kind, and considerate while also being brave, strong, and determined. So many of the things he did just absolutely made me melt! I'll refrain from sharing them since it's always more fun to discover those things on your own!
I loved Jade, too! I thought it was so amazing how though despite what she went through she was determined to what was best for her babies no matter what it cost her. I also loved her sweet and selfless nature!
It was such fun to visit with all the McKinley's, and Beckett, again, they are such a fun family!
I'm going to cut this short (though I could gush for awhile longer) to avoid spoilers, but I will end by saying that I loved every minute of this book and never wanted to put it down. I can't wait for book three!
