One of the best in the Miss Zukas series. When librarian Helma Zukas starts a Local Authors project, she can't foresee how many things are going to change, including the murders of two of the authors. But she's also fighting battles on the personal front -- her romance with the local police chief is on the ropes, her cat is missing (maybe catnapped), and her friend Ruth has returned to Bellhaven and taken over her spare room.
Miss Zukas, my favorite librarian, is back in circulation. And already a murder is about to take place.
I love Jo Dereske's books.
Another enjoyable cozy mystery featuring uptight librarian Helma Zukas.
A delight. So wonderful to have Miss Zukas back after a 5 year absence. Dereske hasn't lost her touch. A super return.
Miss Zukas is in a funk-and so is the series. Not as sharp as earlier books.
Librarian Helma Zukas faces many crises which include a birthday she'd like to forget, a local authors' group with far too many personalities, and a missing cat. You know it will be fun to read!
A fun read and another "Helma" Zukas Story
Enjoyable book--quick read---not the best in the series but glad I read it.
After a five-year hiatus, Miss Zukas has returned. HOORAY!
A delightful mystery series featuring Miss Wilhelmina "Helma" Zukas who is a librarian in Seattle. It's filled with unique character (library patrons and staff) and Miss Zukas's feline companion Boy Cat Zukas. This is the 6th in the series and she hasn't lost her touch. Highly recommended.
another good read by Dereske.
A great cozy - the crime solving doyenne of the Dewey Decimal System, Miss Zukas is back in circulation. "Librarian Helma Zukas wakes up on the morning of her 42nd birthday in the throes of more than one midlife crisis. Her championing a collection of local author's works ignites a dangerous firestorm of jealousy and anger in tiny Bellehaven. She's blackmailed by her conniving boss, May Apple Moon, into attending group counseling sessions and two of the participants turn up dead. An obnoxiously bubbly new librarian is turning the head of Helma's longtime admirer, Police Chief Wayne Gallant. And worst of all, her uncuddly feline companion, Boy Cat Zukas disappears."
Delightful as always! Just wish she'd write more and faster!!!
