Dancing with Fireflies book 2 in the Chapel Springs Series by Denise Hunter.
Jade returns home to Chapel Springs after years of protecting her fragile heart. Then along
comes Daniel, making her long to dance again.
Growing up in the mid western river town of Chapel Springs,Indiana, Jade McKinley felt like a weed in a rose garden. When she left, she 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 nonexistent, 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.
Another good book in the Chapel Springs series. Jade has always danced to the beat of her own drum and is the flower child of her family. She leaves Chapel Springs and moves to Chicago to follow her dream of playing guitar. Things don't go as she plans and now she's back with a big secret. She begins to depend on her honorary big brother Daniel Dawson. Will she have the future she seeks?
