These days, it’s hard to find anyone who hasn’t either experienced a calamitous marriage, or knows someone who has. That's just one of the reasons why the recently released book, Wedlocked: A Novel, by Bonnie Trachtenberg, has such wide appeal. The other reasons have a lot to do with the author’s inimitable, witty voice and the quirky, unforgettable characters she has created in this thoroughly entertaining 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.
The book is already receiving rave reviews. Wendy Walker, the bestselling author of Social Lives writes, “Wedlocked is a funny, warm, and engaging story about life, love, marriage and family. This page-turner is the perfect summer read!” Francine LaSala, author of Rita Hayworth’s Shoes writes, “Wedlocked is a delight, filled with humor and heart. You’ll surely cheer as you follow Rebecca Ross’s trials and triumphs as she navigates her way to finding her true self—and true love—at last.”
