Title: “Fool Me Twice at Christmas” 
Author: Camilla Isley 
Reading Level: Adult

Kate and Chuck are the picture-perfect couple. They grew up side by side at their parents’ chocolate factory. They were best friends-turned-lovers. They even went to university together.  

However, appearances aren’t what they seem.  

Four months ago, Kate broke up with Chuck. Since then, they have been pretending to still be a couple to keep from breaking their parents’ hearts.  

They both agree it’s time to come clean, but life decides something else for the couple-not-couple. How about they go from fake dating to fake engaged to fake having a baby? 

“Fool Me Twice at Christmas” is a great Christmas read. It’s full of hijinks and mishaps. Readers who love comedy and romance are in for a lot of laughs with this book. 

Title: “The Matzah Ball” 
Author: Jean Meltzer

Rachel is the daughter of a well-known Rabbi, and expectations for her to be the perfect Jewish girl are high. So, the fact that she loves Christmas is her biggest secret.   

Not only does she love Christmas, but she is a famous author of Christmas romance novels under a different name.   

This year Rachel’s summer camp archnemesis, Jacob, is back in New York for his big Hanukkah event and Shabbat at her parents’ house. Rachel is desperate for a ticket to Jacob’s Matzah Ball and agrees to volunteer during the setup to earn herself one.   

With one ridiculous task after another, Rachel can feel her anger reaching an all-time high. Even with all the annoyances, Rachel and Jacob can’t deny the attraction between them, but misunderstandings throw a wrench into their early blooming romance.   

With the help of her best friend and Jacob’s grandmother, Rachel finally admits she can no longer keep up with the lies.  She will tell him how she feels, even if it means crashing the Matzah Ball and embarrassing herself in front of the entire world.
