He's the father of her favorite kindergarten student! She can't afford to let anything come between her and her dream, no matter how gorgeous he may be.
Can these two determined people trust in the miracle of Hanukkah to let love and light into their lives? AMAZON LINK
I found this book to be short, charming. It had pretty good main characters but they weren't super deep. It was a good Holiday story that didn't take too long to read.
I agree with another reviewer that it would have been nice if there had been more to Benjamin and Rachel's story. Where did they go from there ? But at least they have a good start. It was different to read a story that revolves around Hanukkah. I'm not Jewish but that was a sweet start of a romance during that time. Come to think of it, that's exactly how it felt, like a starter story.
