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 Passover.   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.Advance praise for Mrs. Kaplan and the Matzoh Ball of Death
 
“Is there kosher food in jail? These two heroines have gotten themselves in quite a pickle! Well, it’s a matzoh ball mess, really. Too deliciously funny!”—Rita Mae Brown, bestselling author of Nine Lives to Die

0.5 Review: Mrs. Kaplan and the Matzoh Ball of Death
Just for once I want a book with an an awesome title to actually be awesome...this one was just a mess. First: the narrator. Ida uses a terribly stilted grammar that just isn't realistic for somebody who while not a native-speaker has lived in the US for over 50 years. She also reminds me of my more...

3.0 Mrs. Kaplan and the Matzoh Ball of Death
I received a free kindle copy of Mrs. Kaplan and the Matzoh Ball of Death by Mark Reutlinger from NetGalley for fair review. It was a nice, entertaining mystery but I needed to look up most of the Yiddish expressions. I know they set the stage & helped develop the ethnicity of the characters but it...
