Alexis Manning is a Hollywood movie publicist V.P. on the verge of a life changing drama.  When she and her fiance decide to go to Vermont for her family Christmas, the air between them is frigid.  He informs her that she needs to convert to Judaism or he will not be able to marry her.  Although her heart is broken, she does not want to change her religion to make him feel better.  Even though she has no idea who she really is, she is not willing to pretend to be someone she is not. With her life crumbling around her, she acts out her life through movie scenes.  When the company she works for buys a movie from a newly talented director, Kirk, she finds herself drawn to him.  Will Alexis find her Hollywood dream man in Kirk?  Or will she decide to go it alone and find her identity before she can commit to someone else?

Kirk Olmstead is the sexy new director on the set and completely enchanted with Alexis.  Only he has to protect the star of his movie at all costs.  Will Kirk be the final act in the love scene with Alexis? Or will the ex-fiance, David, realize he has made a grave mistake letting Alexis go and want her back?

And what of Alexis's first love Andrew?  Will she look him up and see if that old flame can be rekindled?

CONFESSIONS OF A NERVOUS SHIKSA is a dramatic and funny tale of a young woman going through all the acts of a theatrical break up.  Tracy McArdle has a unique way of telling a tale that will draw the reader in from the very first page.  Ms. McArdle spins this drama in a way that will leave you in stitches and tissues.  I wanted to shake, scream and comfort Alexis throughout this charming tale.  This delightful story is wrought with scenes from a wide variety of movies.  I am definitely keeping CONFESSIONS OF A NERVOUS SHIKSA on my keeper's shelf.
