Burning Bright by Megan Hart, KK Hendin, Stacey Agdern and Jennifer Gracen Review

Burning Bright
Four Chanukah Love Stories
By: Megan Hart, KK Hendin, Stacey Agdern and Jennifer Gracen
Releasing December 1st, 2015 
Avon Impulse

This December, take a break from dreidel spinning, gelt winning, and latke eating to experience the joy of Chanukah. When you fall in love during the Festival of Lights, the world burns a whole lot brighter.
It’s definitely not love at first sight for Amanda and her cute but mysterious new neighbor, Ben. Can a Chanukah miracle show them that getting off on the wrong foot doesn’t mean they can’t walk the same road?

Lawyers in love, Shari Cohen and Evan Sonntag are happy together. But in a moment of doubt, he pushes her away-then soon realizes he made a huge mistake. To win her back, it might take something like a Chanukah miracle.

When impulsive interior designer Molly Baker-Stein barges into Jon Adelman’s apartment and his life intent on planning the best Chanukah party their building has ever seen, neither expects that together, they just might discover a Home for Hannukah.

All Tamar Jacobs expected from her Israel vacation was time to hang out with one of her besties and to act like a tourist, cheesy t-shirt and all, in her two favorite cities. She definitely was not expecting to fall for Avi Levinson, a handsome soldier who’s more than she ever dreamed. 


So I will be completely blunt! I am not Jewish or even overly religious. But I was very curious to read this Chanukah romance. So I settled down, thinking that I would read the first book and four hours later, I surfaced from my reading haze, completely in love with this book.

I LOVED Megan Hart's book Miracle, not just because she is an amazing author, but because she set the book in a city close to me. Jennifer Gracen book A Dose of Gelt; is a story about when you allow the outside world to affect your feelings. This book had me crying in sadness and Happiness. Home for Chanukah by Stacey Agdern, was an enlightening tale of the generosity of such a wonderful women and a man that struggles with change. Finally All I Got by KK Hendin story is about finding love, when you were least expecting it.

These are four completely different books, written by four amazing authors that embrace not only finding love, religion but also sharing what Chanukah means to them.
With all that being said, I give Burning Bright a very heartfelt 10 out of 10!
