Fax Me a Bagel: 02/14/18
Fax Me a Bagel by Sharon Kahn is the start of Ruby, the Rabbi's Wife series. Although the series is known as "the rabbi's wife" it really should be the rabbi's widow as Ruby's husband is month's dead by the time the book opens.
Ruby is getting back on track with her life after the tragic death of her husband. Her synagog is looking to hire a new rabbi and she's not entire sure why she has to be included.
Then while on a break for a well earned bagel, another customer ends up dead of an obvious poisoning. The question this is who did it and why? More mysteriously, her death seems related to Ruby's husband's hit and run death!
The complexity of the plot is on a par with an average Murder She Wrote. The only big differences are Ruby's religion and her location. That means the book is pretty easy to read, perfect for just before bed reading or maybe reading while on a road trip. It's not, though, as satisfying as some of the modern series I'm following.

Even though this authoress has a title "Don't Cry For Me, Hot Pastrami" according to your entries; I have to say "Fax Me A Bagel" 'takes the cake' as the weirdest title I have ever heard!

The one I'm reading now is pretty weird too title-wise: Which Big Giver Stole the Chopped Liver?
