Move over, Miss Marple—Mark Reutlinger’s charming cozy
debut introduces readers to the unforgettable amateur sleuth
Rose Kaplan and her loyal sidekick, Ida.
Everyone knows that Rose Kaplan makes the best matzoh ball
soup around—she’s a regular matzoh ball maven—so it’s no
surprise at the Julius and Rebecca Cohen Home for Jewish
Seniors when, once again, Mrs. K wins the honor of preparing
the beloved dish for the Home’s seder on the first night of
But when Bertha Finkelstein is
discovered facedown in her bowl of soup, her death puts a
bit of a pall on the rest of the seder. And things go really
meshugge when it comes out that Bertha choked on a diamond
earring earlier stolen from resident Daisy Goldfarb.
Suddenly Mrs. K is the prime suspect in the police
investigation of both theft and murder. Oy
vey—it’s a recipe for disaster, unless Rose and her dear
friend Ida can summon up the chutzpah to face down the
police and solve the mystery themselves.
