Old Conspiracies, New Sins

Yom Killer by Ilene Schneider (Rabbi Aviva Cohen Mystery #3)


Yes, Rabbi Aviva Cohen is back, and she is just as feisty as ever. This time, when her mother lands in the hospital in a chemically induced coma after a fall in her assisted living facility, something doesn't seem quite right. However, until her mother wakes up, she's going to have a hard time figuring out what's really going on. It doesn't help that her straight-laced sister and her ex-husband the cop need to keep her out of harm's way in the process. Worse, she has only the few days between the Jewish New Year and the holiest day in Judaism - Yom Kippur - to get it all done before she has to be back on her pulpit.

Poetic Youth

20 by Vatsal Surti


The unnamed protagonist in this expressive novella is only 20 years old, but she seems to have quite an old soul. When she meets a man her age and falls in love with him, it seems her life is finally beginning to change, despite her unending mood swings and a shaky relationship with her father, who has just contacted her after many years of estrangement.
