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.

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. 4/5

Three novellas, all set in the same Vermont town during the winter holidays.

I loved that they weren't all about Christmas. I'm sure I knew that when I pre-ordered, but I'd forgotten by the time I got it. The first novella, by Anne Stuart, centered around Christmas; the second focused on the Wiccan holiday of Solstice; and the third was about Hanukkah.

This was a perfect Christmas Eve/ Christmas Day read for me...positive, fun, light, mostly sweet, short, not requiring too much attention. I enjoye
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.
Not really my cup of tea.

This is very good- three stories, three religoius views, three "different" store owners helping three different women make their holday dreams come true.
I thought each of the stories were really cute. A very nice read for this time of the year.
