The Sourdough Wars

Book: The Sourdough Wars (A Rebecca Schwartz Mystery), by Julie Smith

Genre: Cozy mystery

Where I got it: Free Kindle download

Briefly, it’s a murder/detective story, the detective being a twenty-something San Francisco Jewish lawyer.  The plot begins with a batch of freeze-dried sourdough starter which is about to be auctioned… The book is short; it’s a quick, light read that kept my interest and gave me several enjoyable hours of reading.

Anything else: Only when I couldn’t figure why the characters didn’t use cellphones did I realise that the book is from the 1980s.
