Heading Uptown (Nina Fischman #3)
She's savvy, she's funny, and for some reason, she's single. She's a Jewish lawyer on Manhattan's Upper West Side whose simple case of probate leads to murder. Nina finds herself investigating the suspicious death of the primary executor to her mother's best friend's will, and what she finds are some very un-kosher goings-on.

Wow. Awful! One of the worst books I've ever read. A friend gave me this book because I like: witty murder mysteries. This does not qualify. To add further insult to injury it seems that no one proof read this book: ever! The number of typos and grammatical errors makes some paragraphs nearly impossible to read as all I could focus on was the errors rather than the plot. Epic fail.
