Welcome to Day 4 of our 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway!

Today we have Author Bonnie Trachtenberg with us.

From Bonnie:

I’m very much a homebody and so every year on Christmas I recreate a cozy holiday experience. Being Jewish allows you a lot of freedom as to how you’d like to spend it, and my favorite Christmas movies always make it fun. It starts on Christmas Eve with “A Christmas Carol” starring Alastair Sim. Then on Christmas Day, I watch “Christmas in Connecticut,” “Miracle on 34th Street” with Edmund Gwenn, and “A Christmas Story” late in the afternoon. For atmosphere, I have a beautiful holiday tree, a roaring fireplace, hot cocoa, eggnog coffee, and hot apple cider with gingerbread cookies. I also make sure my kitties are curled up around me. Now that’s a relaxing, homey and peaceful way to celebrate!

Neurotically Yours

Smart, attractive, and ambitious, thirty-seven-year-old Dara Harrison is, nonetheless, still single?and on sabbatical from dating. Ironically Los Angeles? most renowned relationship advice columnist, Dara has become a Southland sensation with her ?tell-it-like-it-is? approach to the mating game.

Parlaying her success into a new business, Dara launches a revolutionary dating service geared for the perennially single and romantically challenged. Its no-holds-barred theme soon makes the company a roaring success, even catapulting Dara onto the national talk show scene?until, of course, it all backfires.

With her company under threat and a publicity stunt gone haywire, Dara is forced to join the ranks of her lonely heart clientele, and suddenly realizes that saving the business she cherishes, means facing her lifelong fears?and maybe even falling in love again.

Witty, poignant, and immensely engaging, this romantic comedy from the bestselling author of Wedlocked: A Novel features sparkling dialogue, colorful characters, and a story that pulls you in and never lets you go.


On what should be the happiest day of her life, Rebecca Ross is panic stricken. Rebecca has just wed Craig Jacobs, but she realizes she put more thought into choosing her florist than she did in choosing the man she?s just pledged to love for the rest of her life.

Before Craig, Rebecca, a talented Long Island girl, dreamed of following in her grandmother?s footsteps with an acting career. Unfortunately, she was cut down to size by years of disappointment, and by her first love?a Hollywood director. She returned to Long Island a lost and broken woman, and ended up in the last place she ever wanted: her old bedroom at her parents? house.

But Rebecca?s mother, an overzealous convert to Judaism, has a long held dream too: marry off her three daughters to Jewish men. So no one is more thrilled than her when Rebecca meets and marries bon vivant Craig Jacobs, the man who has won over the whole family. Too bad they?re all about to discover that underneath his charismatic shell, this Prince Charming is anything but!
