Note: 
Suspense, humor, and romance fill this fourth in a mystery series for teens. Two Jewish sisters, Sophie and Sam Shattenberg, live under a false identity in Venice, Indiana because they are in hiding from their mercenary stepmother, who planned to separate them after their father died. The girls have jobs working for a private detective, adding to the mysterious nature of their lives. Concealing their identities has become more difficult for them as they have forged friendships and romantic relationships and the plot of this story is propelled by Sophie's efforts to transform her mother's recipe for matzo balls into something non-Jewish. Sophie is the main character and her observations about life in Venice are not only astute but funny. A deservedly popular series.
