Usually, I don’t read Jewish fiction. Don’t ask me why, I dunno.
This week I picked up
A Recipe for Disaster by Z.C. Berry, $16
This book is a scream. I know it’s great because I caught my Hubster reading over my shoulder. He’s not a reader; it’s that good!
Synopsis: An Anglo Israeli mom who is avoids the kitchen is planning her oldest son’s bar mitzvah. Her husband is a teacher in a yeshivah. Somehow, she gets roped into catering the event herself. For a bad/novice cook; that is a true nightmare! Plus, her house is being remodeled by a contractor who is insanely slow.
I love this book!
