Lighting the Flames: A Hanukkah Story - Sarah Wendell

Romance Bingo - Guy/Girl Next Door square

 

I liked everything about this book except for the romance. There is a strong sense of community and it was wonderful to read about people who only get together once or twice a year picking up friendships right where it left off. I also learned so much about Hanukkah, especially the rituals. Gen was a decent female character, but she sometimes was too horny to act smart; she also had this weird fetish with the summer camp and not wanting to know about people when they are outside of the camp. Jeremy was a better character, showing a love of life and laughter but also being a serious grown up when needed. There is no sex scenes, but it did have a NA feel.
