    I was impressed with BURNING BRIGHT, a holiday anthology I have been going through my stash of Christmas related books recently Many of the anthologies I have read are just ordinary and I have had a hard time finishing many books I am lucky to find one out of the 3 5 romances that I could recommend to a friend BURNING BRIGHT was the exception and two of the three stories were really good The title refers to a candle shop in Crescent Cove, VT.STAR LIGHT, STAR BRIGHT by Anne Stuart was my fav I was impressed with BURNING BRIGHT, a holiday anthology I have been going through my stash of Christmas related books recently Many of the anthologies I have read are just ordinary and I have had a hard time finishing many books I am lucky to find one out of the 3 5 romances that I could recommend to a friend BURNING BRIGHT was the exception and two of the three stories were really good The title refers to a candle shop in Crescent Cove, VT.STAR LIGHT, STAR BRIGHT by Anne Stuart was my favorite Ms Stuart is a hit or miss author with me I either love or dislike her romances Rarely is there a middle ground SLSB was a pleasant surprise Angela McKenna, Angel , has returned to VT after a divorce from her childhood sweetheart But could the childhood friend she left behind for the other boy she thought she loved have been her real true love Grab that hot chocolate and read the story to find out 5 StarsONE FOR EACH NIGHT by Judith Arnold was almost as good I haven t read anything by this author before but I will look for other books by her in the future Her story centers around Alana Ross, a reporter for the local paper in Crescent Cove Her grandmother passed away the previous year and she is trying relive her happy memories of Hanukkah in her new town With the help of a visiting lawyer that has come to town, does she have a chance Curl up with your hot tea and continue reading 4.5 StarsI was surprised that Maggie Shayne s RETURN OF THE LIGHT was my least favorite I have enjoyed some of her paranormal romances Dori Stewart left years before to make a name for herself She had money and prestige and lost it all only to return to her home town with her tail between her legs Her old love is the sheriff of the town I thought Jason Ferrar, the lawman, could have done better but to each his own 2 Stars for OK

    I really liked the concept of this anthology, three holiday stories from different faiths As a non religious person who grew up Buddhist, I definitely get tired of the endless stream of only Christian characters.The first story was a cute Christmas story And by Anne Stuart, which automatically puts it that much higher in my estimation And despite what I just said about being tired of only Christian characters, this was still my favorite novella in the bunch 4 5The second story was rather f I really liked the concept of this anthology, three holiday stories from different faiths As a non religious person who grew up Buddhist, I definitely get tired of the endless stream of only Christian characters.The first story was a cute Christmas story And by Anne Stuart, which automatically puts it that much higher in my estimation And despite what I just said about being tired of only Christian characters, this was still my favorite novella in the bunch 4 5The second story was rather frustrating It centered on a Wiccan heroine who d lost her religion celebrating the winter solstice First of all, I had problems with the premise The heroine loses her six figure job and them somehow loses everything so that she s at the point of having to work as a waitress just to scrape by Did she have absolutely no sense of money management whatsoever No savings To be making that much money and then to lose everything as a result of losing her job just seems a bit extreme And the ending view spoiler I know it s everywhere in romance novels, but I don t find it particularly romantic for a heroine to give up a high paying job in order to move to a small town, marry the hero who actually makes less than the heroine s potential salary , and have his babies Just ew hide spoiler 2 5And the last novella was a Hanukkah story My main problem with this one was that it too place over such a short period of time Whereas both of the previous sets of characters already had relationships in the past, these characters had only a few days between meeting and falling in love As a result, I can t say I really believed in their love However, I was definitely a fan of the ending view spoiler As opposed to the last novella, in this one, the hero changed his life around for the heroine hide spoiler Overall, I liked this story, but the brevity of their time together made it a bit too unbelievable 3.5 5Altogether, this was an interesting anthology, and I really wish it had worked better But the actual execution of the second and third stories felt lacking, and I didn t enjoy them as much as I had hoped I would Anne Stuart s contribution was definitely my favorite

    I read at least one holiday i.e Christmas themed book every year, but this year I discovered a Chanukah themed romance collection Sadly I only liked one of the four stories I will be on the hunt for other Chanukah, Kwanzaa or Diwali themed books, because the holidays put most everyone in a good mood and I love celebrating even in my reading.

    I really appreciated Harlequin putting together an anthology of stories about non Christians celebrating their winter holidays Hanukkah and Winter Solstice I just wish they had been better.
