A Pain in the Tuchis

by Mark Reutlinger

Combining the classic charms of Agatha Christie with the delightful humor of M. C. Beaton's Agatha Raisin novels, Mark Reutlinger's Mrs. Kaplan mystery series returns as a notorious crank meets an untimely fate. Yom Kippur is a day of reflection and soul searching. But at the Julius and Rebecca Cohen Home for Jewish Seniors, Vera Gold misses this opportunity to atone for her many sins when she up and dies. Indeed, Vera was such a pain in the tuchis to all those around her that when her sister claims Vera was deliberately poisoned, the tough question isn't who would want to kill her--but who wouldn't? Having already solved one murder with her dear friend Ida, Rose Kaplan has a sleuthing reputation that precedes her. It's only natural that Vera's sister turns to Mrs. K for help. So do the police, but when her conclusions conflict with theirs, they tell her to butt out! This case has more twists than a loaf of challah. And with a homicidal scoundrel on the loose, Mrs. K has to act fast--or she might be the guest of honor at the Home's next memorial service. Praise for Mark Reutlinger's Mrs. Kaplan and the Matzoh Ball of Death "Is there kosher food in jail? These two heroines have gotten themselves in quite a pickle!

Too deliciously funny!"--Rita Mae Brown, bestselling author of Nine Lives to Die"If you like humorous cozy mysteries like those featuring Miss Marple, then this new take on them might really appeal to you."--Popcorn Reads "Good book. Good mystery. Good humor. All around it's a solid 'A' to me and definitely worth a read."--Bell, Book & Candle "If you're on the hunt for a fun, mild-mannered mystery full of larger-than-life characters and more Yiddish expressions than you can shake a schtickl at, look no further than Mark Reutlinger's Mrs. Kaplan and the Matzoh Ball of Death."--Smitten by Books "A delightful cozy mystery . . . The writing was simple and easy to follow for the most part, the plot fun and funny, characters engaging."--Open Book Society

by Seth Rudetsky

Broadway, New York. The shows, the neon lights . . . the cute chorus boys!

If only he could ditch his kind, virtuous, upright, and--dare he say it?--uptight boyfriend, Spencer.

Plus, Spencer is hanging out with a celebra-hottie, Justin's best friend Becky isn't speaking to him, and his famous actor boss seems headed for flopdom.
