Great book! Mix of Jewish history and screwball comedy. Heather is the gal who ties it all together tho' she is afraid she'll lose it all. Interesting characters -- and plenty of them but distinct enough so they are easy to keep in mind. Five stars for sure*****!

Pretty cute and fun read. The attitude of chick lit, but a unique premise. I enjoyed it and am reading another by this author right now! :)

"To save the family company, Greenblotz Matzo, from bankruptcy, Heather Greenblotz agrees to let the Food Channel broadcast a Greenblotz family Seder. The problem is, the Greenblotz clan is anything but kosher and they don't celebrate seder, so Heather has to get her family to cooperate and, even more difficult, to act "normal" on TV."

This was a fun read.

Very easy read. Cute. Very straight girl in love kind of read. I enjoyed it even though I am not Jewish or straight. It was well-done.

This book is absolutely hilarious ! Read it in a matter of a few hours. You will easily feel like you can envision each character and the setting with her descriptive writing.

Very cute chick lit! Plenty of fluff with some fun romance. Pulling off a successful fake Passover proves to be challenging!

A great romantic comedy played out on the pages of this book.

I liked how Shapiro integrated Seder and other Jewish traditions into the story, as our heroine Heather learns about them herself. A sweet story.

The story was ok, but it didn't move fast enough for me. It also seemed to have too much going on.

Although I really enjoyed this book (fun characters, quirky storyline), the ending sort of left me hanging. Things were wrapped up a bit strangely and I'd love to have a sequel to move on to. But overall, I thought it was a fun read.

Heather Greenblotz's mother is distant and preoccupied with her own life, and her father is off in Amsterdam with his lover. Heather's shares in the family business, Greenblotz Matzo, have allowed her to pursue her dream of being a documentary filmmaker. She still helps out with some of the PR for the company, and when the Food Channel wants to do a segment on it, Heather's cousin Jake asks her to give them the tour. She's greeted by two delicious men when she arrives at the factory: sexy interviewer Steve and thoughtful, handsome cameraman Jared. She's attracted to both men, but it's Steve who makes the first move, though Heather quickly learns there's a business motive behind it: he wants to film a Greenblotz family Passover seder. Greenblotz Matzo needs the publicity, but Heather has no idea how to get her wayward family together for a religious event.

Very slow, couldn't finish it.

It's not a great work of literature, but it's perfect for a day at the beach, or on the train or treadmill. Funny and breezy, and very engaging. Although not all the Jewish facts were right, there were enough to provide information, and give what could have been a "fluff" book some real character and charm.
