Holiday by Candlelight by Laurel Greer


I didn’t NOT like this book. I liked it.

But…I thought it was going to be a holiday romance. Hanukkah and Christmas are technically happening but it has very little to do with the actual story. So that was a big distraction for me. The cover literally features the couple all snuggly as they light a menorah. Basking in the glow of love and holiday candlelight…

The story is actually about PTSD and how that impacts the couple’s relationship. Caleb and Garnet are planning a holiday party but you could lift all the holiday references out and the story wouldn’t change at all. Make it birthday party. Same story.

So again, it’s not a bad book. But this one definitely didn’t scratch my magical holiday romance itch.

Holiday by Candlelight releases on October 15th.  Thanks @netgalley and Harlequin for the chance to read an advanced copy.  I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
