About the Book:
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!
This unputdownable romantic comedy will amuse and enthrall you from angst-ridden start to glorious finish.
Rebecca Ross is about to get married but can’t shake the feeling that she’s making a huge mistake.  The book flashes back to Rebecca’s childhood and follows her life to current day to help guide the reader in understanding Rebecca and what she is feeling.  While I enjoyed this part, it was a little long and made my mind wander a bit. 
This book was definitely a fun read, give or take a few parts that were slower than others.  My favorite thing about this book was the authors’ clever and humorous writing.  The author made me laugh, which I always appreciate.  The novel is very vivid; it captures the reader and made me feel as if I was there.  Before I knew it, the book was over.
Overall, this is a great debut.  Fun, humorous, witty, clever and full of interesting characters and situations, this book was a pleasure to read.  Though not realistic, the book captures bits reality and exaggerates it.  If you have ever lived with another person you’ll understand how much you learn about others by sharing a living space.  I found these situations to be very funny in the novel, especially the sleep walking.  I would recommend this novel and I will read more by Bonnie.
