From the Publisher:
Do shiksas really have more fun? A Jewish girl is about to find out in Laurie Graff?s wickedly witty novel.

SHIK·SA (shik's?)
n. Yiddish
1. A non-Jewish woman. 2. A quintessential blonde beauty. 3. A Jewish boy?s dream. 4. A Jewish girl?s nightmare.

Manhattan publicist Aimee Albert knows a good spin, but she?s the one who winds up reeling when her gorgeous, goyishe boyfriend breaks up with her?on Christmas! Aimee dusts herself off and decides to seek companionship with a member of her own tribe. There?s just one problem: all the shiksas are snapping them up!
So when the very cute, Jewish, and gainfully employed Josh Hirsch catches Aimee?s eye at a kosher wine tasting and mistakes her for a shiksa, what?s a girl to do? Unfortunately, the charade goes on longer than Aimee planned, and her life becomes more complicated than a Bergman film. But Aimee begins to discover that her identity isn?t as easily traded as a pair of Jimmy Choos, and she must decide if having the man of her dreams is worth the price of giving up so much of who she is.Upset when her stand-up comedian boyfriend dumps her on Christmas, Jewish Manhattan publicist Aimee Albert seeks companionship with a nice Jewish man, and falls for Josh Hirsch, a gorgeous man who mistakes her for a shiksa and who has a different attitude toward Judaism than she does. Reprint.
Annotation:
In this humorous contemporary romance, a young Jewish woman longs for a Jewish husband. Aimee Albert is a savvy New York City gal, and after she gives herself a Barbie-esque makeover, she meets handsome Josh. He believes Aimee to be a Gentile, and so begins their slapstick romance, as Aimee pretends to be someone she isn't. Chick lit readers will delight in this witty, amusing story about love and personal identity.

Praise

"Graff's prose crackles with winning wit, making her potentially annoying conceit go down like a chocolate-covered macaroon."
