THIS WEEKS LETTER IS: "N"





This synopsis is from Sharon Kahn's website. I haven't read it yet, but it's in my TBR waiting for me :)

Forget everything your mother ever told you about chicken soup -- Temple Rita's version is lethal. That's why Ruby Rothman is back on the case in Sharon Kahn's tale of Jewish life in small-town Eternal, Texas.

Life in Eternal is never dull for forty-six-year-old Ruby, recently widowed from Rabbi Stu. As part-owner of The Hot Bagel bakery and the proprietor of a computer consulting business, Ruby has plenty to keep her busy. There's also her nemesis, Essie Sue Margolis, who won't leave her alone. As new owner of the Center for Bodily Movement, formerly known as Sam's Gym, Essie Sue has enlisted all her friends and adversaries for exercise classes with her new trainer, the mysterious Bogie. Who is Bogie and where did he come from? Nobody seems to know much about him, except that where Bogie is concerned, Essie Sue's checkbook ink seems to flow.

Speaking of cash, Essie Sue is also leading Temple Rita's fund-raising drive for a large Queen Esther statue to be erected in memory of Essie Sue's late,hardcover lamented sister Marla. And what better way to raise money than the Annual Temple Matzo Ball Sale featuring Essie Sue's personal recipe for fat-free, salt-free matzo balls? Of course they are taste-free, too. At least they aren't lethal -- or are they?

Never Nosh A Matzo Ball delivers suspense and subplots, comic relief and eccentric characters, and of course, more Ruby, a character who could only have been created by an author who was herself for many years a rabbi's wife.

    A friend of mine makes matzo balls, however they must have fat and salt because they are really good.
    Thanks for sharing.
