A Pain in the Tuchis: A Mrs. Kaplan Mystery

Alibi
7

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.

“A relaxing cozy mystery as comfortable as a warm knitted shawl on a cold winter night.”—Mallory Heart Reviews
 
“It is a treat to read about Rose and Ida as they sleuth—making a list of suspects, working out the motives and opportunities—always keeping in mind WWSD (What would Sherlock do?).”—Jane Reads

“One of the most enjoyable things about A Pain in the Tuchis was the narration of the story by Ida. She defers all the brains to Mrs. K, but, in reality, Ida’s voice is the humorous glue that holds the whole story together.”—Bubble Bath Books
