I’m also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It’s hosted by Rose City Reader

I just finished reading this one.  Such a good mystery.

First Chapter
If I didn’t know better, I’d think that whenever it’s too quiet here at the Julius and Rebecca Cohen Home for Jewish Seniors, my friend Rose Kaplan gets bored and conjures up a dead body under mysterious circumstances.  Then she can make like her hero, Mr. Sherlock Holmes, and solve the mystery.

From 56% on my Kindle…

Why is it that when something to eat is referred to as being “healthy,” it almost never is also referred to as being “delicious”?


Synopsis from Goodreads:

In OY VEY, MARIA!, Rose Kaplan and her best friend Ida Berkowitz investigate another murder at the Julius and Rebecca Cohen Home for Jewish Seniors. This time Maria, the young companion to a disabled resident, is found shot to death during a celebration of the holiday of Purim. Standing over her holding the murder weapon is the manager of the Home, making it a proverbial “smoking gun” case. His motive is clear, as he had been having an affair with Maria, which she had recently tried to break off. The police are convinced, of course, that they have an open and shut case, but as Ida puts it, “Open, yes. Shut, it turns out, not so much.”
