The Matzah Ball

Rachel Rubenstein-Goldblatt has a secret life. Having grown up on Long Island with her prominent father and perfect mother, expectations soared throughout her childhood. Life as the Rabbi’s daughter held the responsibility as role model for all the other children. Rachel’s diagnosis of a chronic illness in college changed her life forever. For the last decade Rachel has given up on the possibility of romance and love even though she has become an expert through her own words. Rachel is a successful closet Christmas romance novelist. She writes under a pseudonym and it may not be kosher but no-one except her very best friend knows the truth. The home office where she writes her happily-ever-afters is filled with Christmas decorations that would make her family plotz. Even though her shelves hold awards and dozens of bestsellers, the publishers have demanded their very first Hanukah romance. Oy Vey! As much as she adores her family and heritage, Rachel does not see Hanukah in a romantic light, eight candles or not. That is, until Jacob Greenberg, her camp nemesis and first kiss waltzes back into town to throw the Matzah Ball. Rachel must find a way to snag an invite to his highly anticipated sold out event. Rachel spins the Hanukah dreidel and learns that against all odds there is little she can do to avoid their fate. Highly recommend this adorable, funny, trailblazing Hanukah romance by Jean Meltzer. It is easy to become obsessed with the sparkling lights and beauty of the holiday season. I can’t say I’m ready to come out of my Christmas closet but I would love to see more romcoms like this join the fun! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
